Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
Joss Whedon, the creative genius behind TV cult hits Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel and the anticipated Dollhouse, created an online musical, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser himself) stars as a mad scientists struggling to get into the Evil League of Evil but is distracted by Penny, a girl he loves from afar. Complicating things is Captain Hammer, his heroic nemesis. The musical, which is available online for free until July 20, is in three parts and can be downloaded from iTunes. It's great that such creative forces are coming together and using the Internet as a unique medium for distributing multimedia. Thank you, Mr. Whedon for a fantastic and comical spin into the world of superheroes and villains.
