Not that he wasn’t before, you understand, but his latest creation, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog has simply re-affirmed his standing. During the Hollywood Writer’s Strike, Joss and a couple of his homies got together and the result is a professional, polished episode that was designed to be broadcast over the ‘Net. Dr. Horrible is vintage Joss–funny, poignant, and thoughtful. Plus, it’s a musical, too. How can you go wrong?
Neil Patrick Harris stars as the wanna-be supervillain Dr. Horrible who secretly pines for Penny (Felicia Day), a sweet girl trying to do good works in an uncaring city. Unfortunately, Dr. Horrible only succeeds in introducing Penny to his nemesis, Captain Hammer, a self-centered superhero played by Nathan Fillion. To get Penny back, Dr. Horrible plots his revenge–with unexpected results.
