Television Tuesday: Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog
OK, in case you missed it, while the writer's strike was going on, Joss Whedon experimented with the whole webisode thing and created a three Act series called Dr. Horrible's sing-along blog. You can watch each act separately or watch the whole thing end to end.
The story follows Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) who is just a regular Joe during the day, and his occupation is to be an amateur Villain called Dr. Horrible who tries to gain membership into a prestigious villain group. His arch nemesis is The Hammer (Nathan Fillion) who keeps thwarting Horrible's attempts, and who is quite full of himself. I found Horrible to be quite human, despite his villain demeanor.
In the story there is of course a love interest for Dr. Horrible, but he is so socially awkward that he has trouble asking her out each time he sees her at the Laundromat.
The series is available for free on hulu, and for pay on iTunes.
It's only 45 minutes, so you should have plenty of time to sit down and enjoy it!
