A friend of mine just tipped me to this hilarious bit of entertainment. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog stars Neil Patrick Harris as a developing evil-doer and a self-conscious single guy. Nathan Fillion plays his nemesis, Captain Hammer.
Dr. H is trying to gain acceptance to the Evil League of Evil and is tasked with doing...evil. The show is peppered with great lines (including at one point a newscaster signing off with "It's a good day to be homeless").
I saw NPH star in Rent in LA and he was terrific. In this bit of fun, he's also great. It's interesting how different it is. The songs in the show are well done.
I'll be surprised if this doesn't turn into some variety of a Broadway show, if it hasn't already. It's another example of the power of internet distribution. It clearly doesn't "fit" very well on TV so they just did it on their own, bravo!
