I just finished watching Act I of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog and it’s hilarious. It’s a web-only musical, created by Joss Whedon, the creator of the bodacious show Firefly (and Buffy and Angel). It stars Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible and Nathan Fillion (Mal from Firefly) as Captain Hammer. Dr. Horrible is trying to get into the Evil League of Evil, and talk to the girl of his dreams, all the while being thwarted by the good yet goofy, Captain Hammer.
Apparently you can stream each episode for free on the day it comes out until midnight (that’s what I heard) but after that, you have to get it from iTunes. I bought the “season pass” for $3.99, which gets me all three episodes as they are released. Go watch it.
Did I mention that it’s a musical. The songs are great and very funny.
