If you’ve never seen Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, you have a chance to do so on Tuesday night on The CW.
Joss Whedon and his brothers Zack and Jed decided to write something together for fun during the 2008 WGA Strike. They came up with a story told in three acts, to be distributed online and, oh yeah, it would be a musical. Sure, why not. Thus was born Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and a cult following for the story.
While everyone had fallen in love the story of Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris), a hard working “super” villain who is trying to earn his way into the ‘Evil League of Evil,’ Capt. Hammer (Nathan Fillion) and Penny (Felicia Day) have also earned their fans. It’s just a fun departure from the normal work out there, and the fact it has now made it onto a regular airing of TV is just mind blowing.
So, if you haven’t seen it, tune in tonight and check it out. And there is talk of a sequel coming soon, so if you watch this, you may help speed that process along just a bit.
And I dare you not to find yourself singing some of the songs the next day.
