It's about time I said something about this.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is a short film made by Joss Whedon (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Serenity fame) and starring Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, a wannabe supervillain (alter-ego non-descriptly known as 'Billy') with his heart set on taking over the world and proving himself a super villain, while at the same time getting Penny (Felicia Day), the cute girl at the laundromat, to notice him. Things turn messy when Dr. Horrible's plans are foiled by the egotistical "superhero", Captain Hammer and all attempts at villainish nobility by Dr. Horrible are thrown out the window! Traditional superhero roles are reversed and drama (nay, even angst) ensues! I won't give everything away, but if you haven't seen this, check it out. I'm not too terribly fond of the Buffy writing/story style, but something about Dr. Horrible connects with me, and I'm always glad to see people putting out musicals, even in this relatively small a scale, and especially through the medium of the ubiquitous internet. Note: There are a couple of PG moments, just so you know. Special thanks to Megan for introducing me to this gem.
My favorite line: "Four sweater vests!" You'll know what I mean when you see it in Act II.
The music is just so catchy.
