Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog

I meant to post this last week which means I’m about 6.7 internet years late but seeing as Joss Whedon announced at the recent Comic-Con festival that there will be a sequel of sorts why not catch up? Because I’m too lazy to summarize what makes this idea so great I’ll leave it to it’s Vicipéid entry: “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is a 43-minute tragicomic musical in three acts, each released as a separate episode. It was produced exclusively for Internet distribution and tells the story of Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris), an aspiring supervillain, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), his nemesis, and Penny (Felecia Day), their mutual love interest.

The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and Jed’s fiancée, actress Maurissa Tancharoen. The writing team penned the musical during the WGA writers’ strike. The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike.”

Read the history of the project on Entertainment Weekly. Watch the entire video here on hulu. Also on the same page are the three individual acts. If you’re still reading this, then I have to ask why? Go! Now! A hilarious musicals awaits you!
