I had heard much of a hullabaloo in Twitter about Joss Whedon's new show, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog during the week. Yesterday, I bought the show on iTunes and sat down to watch all three acts. Thanks to the Apple TV, I was able to watch on a nice television set, rather than in front of a computer.
The show was fantastic. I can only hope for a series. I suggest you buy it on iTunes immediately.
Spoiler Warning: If you are a complete spoiler queen and get all worked up about minor plot points that are obvious, then stop reading. Otherwise, I will continue to discuss part of the show that doesn't impact your enjoyment in any bit.
Of course, the most intriguing moment is the obvious teaser at the end, revealing of the Evil League of Evil about to begin a meeting.
Here is the clearest shot we have of the assembled Evil League of Evil.
From the end credits, we are given the roster:
Fake Thomas Jefferson
Now, I carefully grabbed screen shots of each character and made my best guess as to match the name with the face. The face of evil! Muah-ha-ha-ha!
First, with the most obvious matches...
Quite clearly, Bad Horse, leader of the Evil League of Evil. I don't put it past Joss Whedon to not have the actual horse be Bad Horse, but I think this is a safe assumption.
This is Dr. Horrible, now in his red costume and actually wearing his goggles.
Next, another safe assumption that this is Fake Thomas Jefferson. In other shots, he is shown holding a quill, further reinforcing the link to Fake Thomas Jefferson.
Slightly bit riskier is assuming that this is Dead Bowie. The general 70s look and makeup kinda gives this one away.
On the right side, in multi-colored garb, is who I believe to be Tie-Die. There are only a few frames of Tie-Die, but I believe the costume and the peace symbol necklace establish this conclusion firmly.
In this shot, I assume that on the left is Professor Normal. Mainly because he's the most professorial looking one at the table. To his right is Dead Bowie. Interestingly, the feet on the table are NOT those of Dead Bowie.
In this wide shot, we see entire Evil League of Evil. Between Professor Normal and Dead Bowie, owner of the feet on the table, shown above is Fury Leika. I believe it is Fury Leika due to the Viking-esque look, battle staff, and angry look.
This leaves only one person left, who we can assume to be Snake Bite. Not a lot to go on here. She doesn't really match up with any other name and she does look like she's more into nature by virture of holding a bouquet of flowers. Nothing snake or bite like in any shot to confirm this. Maybe she's got fangs we can't see.
One more wide shot of the group, with Tie-Die cut off on the right.
With this rationale, I give you my best guess as to who is who in the Evil League of Evil.
What do you think?
The point being made is that the woman in white with a bouquet, could be a woman scorned at the altar. And we all know that "Hell hath no Fury like a woman scorned." I can see the idea of a 'Cobra Cowl' on the woman with a staff. So she could very well be Snake Bite.
I guess we won't know for sure, until Joss wants us to know for sure...Posted by michael at July 20, 2008 11:51 AM
