If you haven’t already, go and watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. It’s Awesome!
Update 7/20 to elaborate– per the comment by Jason on John Roger’s blog: Indeed.
This in a nutshell is what Annakin Skywalker’s fall should have looked like. Annakin should have been the geeky Jedi kid with cool ideas about how to make bigger, better lightsabers and force-powered exoskeltons who was in love with a girl but didn’t know how to tell her and his jelousy over a rival (Obiwan) drives him mad until he accidentally kills her. And that’s how he becomes evil.
But this is why Joss Whedon is now King of the Geeks instead of George Lucus. Joss can tell a good story that as a tengent, sums up the crux of someone elses universe, in a musical tragicomedy. Bravo!
