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.

Isn’t it great!!
All the episodes will be up for free until Sunday at midnight. Then after that they will be avail for purchase.
Interesting. I went and checked again, and when I clicked on the Act I link, I got a page with a big empty space in it and a “Download on iTunes” badge. I assumed it had already been taken down. Looking at the source, I see that it does have some embeded content from hulu.com, but for some reason, it’s just not showing up for me.
They did a big server move due to overwhelming demand (they are on twitter as drhorrible) and DNS is taking its time to catch up. I still get a “Server not responding error”.
I am waiting to see it again as I skim watched it yesterday because of kids. Then it went down 😦 (Mind you this was after a few hours of them getting Hulu to actually stream outside of the US which was an amazing feat)
I just went to itunes and the link is there but to download it there is a fee of $1.99 now…..
Yeah, if you get it through iTunes, you have to pay. But supposedly they are available for streaming from drhorrible.com until Sunday.
