What's a writer, like say Buffy the Vampire/Angel/firefly creator Joss Whedon, to do with spare time during a writer's strike? Why, you put on a musical comic book video thingie. Presenting Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day. It's over the top and wonderfully funny - NPH makes a villain the hero of his own story, and Nathan Fillion is great as the brash and oblivious hero Captain Hammer. If they ever made a Futurama movie, Nathan Fillion is Zap Brannigan.

Joss's Master Plan


"Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog" will be streamed, LIVE (that part’s not true), FREE (sadly, that part is) right on, in mid-July. Specifically:

ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.

ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.

ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.

All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)

The videos are available on iTunes for a nominal fee for keepsies.
