Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Back during the writer's strike, Joss Whedon and his pals were bored. So bored were they that they started coming up with ideas for projects that they'd like to do just for fun. One such project was Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. After the strike ended Joss rounded up some money to do it right and got pals Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion to do some sweet super-powered musicality. It's the awesomest thing since I don't know when. Check it out. Rumor is that after this initial run you won't be able to see it for free anymore.

Also, so you know, new favorite song = "With My Freeze Ray I Will Stop The World".

Update: I can't stop watching this thing. It's so awesome.

Update 2: Neil Patrick Harris should be in everything filmed from now on.

Update 3: Part 2 is out now! Part 3 will be out Saturday.

I really love "Brand New Day", the last song from Act II.

"It's a brand new day, the sun is high, the birds are singing that you're gonna die!!

Awesome.

And Joss really has a hard-on for vocal counterpoints. He did it a lot in Once More With Feeling, and he does it here too.

And I totally love Felicia Day, which is weird, because she probably gave the single most inept performance in the history of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" when she was on for a few eps in Season 7.
