Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

5 Nov

Joss Whedon has never been afraid to do something that is familiar and do it differently. Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is a fun script he co-wrote with his brothers Jed and Zack, and actress Maurissa Tancharoen. Originally, released as a web-series, and then on DVD/Blu-ray as a short film features Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, an aspiring villain, who boasts his “evil” work on his blog. He strives to be a part of the “Evil League of Evil”, and desires the affections of Penny (Felicia Day). His rival is a self-centered narcissistic superhero named Captain Hammer(Nathan Fillion).

Dr. Horrible is an amusing musical filled with smart performances, witty writing, goofy characters and catchy songs. This wonderful cult classic is a popular choice on Netflix because of Whedon’s meteoric popularity and growing fan base. The project is only forty minutes long, but this television episode long film leaves audiences hoping for a sequel because  Dr. Horrible is so much fun.
