Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Break muna from the religion / civil rights thing.

Everybody check out "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," perhaps the first internet musical starring Neil Patrick Harris ("Doogie Howser," "How I Met Your Mother") as a second-rate supervillain applying for the Evil League of Evil while trying to impress a girl he likes at the laundromat.

Nathan Filion ("Firefly," "Slither") is his nemesis, Captain Hammer while Felicia Day ("Buffy," "The Guild") is the girl, Penny. Simon Helberg ("Studio 60," "Big Bang Theory") plays Dr. Horrible's henchman.

The songs are catchy, the lyrics are priceless, and the way the actors play their parts is just several shades of win. There's a cheesy sincerity (or sincere cheesiness) in the way they deliver their lines. The first two acts are up with the final installment due online in a couple of days.

"It's curtains for you Dr. Horrible. Lacy, wafting curtains."

Is it just me or does Neil Patrick Harris always play bloggers? Doogie Howser had that blue screen. Barney Stinson supposedly has an awesome blog. And Mark from "Rent" was doing the late 90s equivalent of video blogging.
