What I love about DragonCon is the versatility to what they provide for content – from panels to parties and events across the board. There is always something to see, do and experience at this grand 4-day pop culture extravaganza (which is quickly starting earlier and earlier as the years march on). For me there are so many highlights that it’s hard to put into words; but I always look forward to seeing what DragonCon offers over on the Whedonverse track. Which for those of you who are not familiar with this track, it is the fan track for all things related to Joss Whedon, like Firefly, Dollhouse, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer… shall I continue? Really he’s the creator of some of the most beloved and iconic television series that have helped to define the landscape and watercooler moments of our collective pop culture experience.
So every year at DragonCon it’s always a curiosity to see if they are going to do a double feature of Buffy the Vampire Slayer “Once More With Feeling” and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog or pick one and run them back-to-back. This year, they went with a back-to-back run of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and if you haven’t seen it yet, this is something I highly recommend seeing. It’s hilarious through and through, but to get to see it at DragonCon is even better, because you are in a ballroom filled with people to the brim who love it as much as you do and sing along word for word. Think Mystery Theater 3000 and amp it up to ten. This year there was a fun twist, as the gender roles were flipped, renewing an already hysterical show and making it so much more fun.
