Dr. Horrible

This week only, you can watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog, a web-only musical written by Joss Whedon. It stars Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day, and Nathan Fillion and it is woderfully entertaining. Acts I and II are out now with Act III to follow on Saturday. Sunday it goes offline (but will be for sale on iTunes and will eventually come out on DVD).

It is the only super-villain musical you will ever need. Until I write one, of course.
