Dr. Horrible, an aspiring supervillain with his own video blog, is attempting to join the prestigious Evil League of Evil (led by the legendary "thoroughbred of sin", Bad Horse), but his plans are usually foiled by the egotistical superhero Captain Hammer. Horrible's life is thrown for a loop when he falls in love with Penny, a beautiful and optimistic advocate for the homeless he meets at the laundromat, a situation which complicates itself even further when Penny begins dating the boorish, oafish Hammer after he apparently saves her life. Faced with the task of impressing the League, can Horrible overcome his own incompetence to ruin the day, kill the hero, and still get the girl? Written by
In September 2009, a screening of "Dr. Horrible", followed by an interview of Joss Whedon by Ira Glass was held as a charity fundraiser for the nonprofit agency 826NYC, which provides free creative writing tutoring to children and teens. The choice of "Dr. Horrible" as a fundraiser for 826NYC is particularly apt; the storefront of the tutoring classrooms is a real business called The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Company, which sells such "superhero necessities" as capes, secret identity kits, "the world's first pair of continuous-use, non-invasive Invisibility Detection Goggles," and bottles and cans purporting to contain concepts including chaos, antimatter, and immortality. All store proceeds go to 826NYC. See more »
So I thank my girlfriend Penny. Yea, we totally had sex. She showed me there's so many different muscles I can flex. There's the deltoids of compassion, there's the abs of being kind. It's not enough to bash in heads, you've got to bash in minds!

I honestly didn't know what I was getting myself into when I first sat down at my computer to watch this. I had heard that Joss Whedon had created it, and I was a fan of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series, but I didn't know what it was about or anything.
Forty Five minutes later, I was completely blown away. The songs, writing, and acting are just amazing. It made me laugh, and nearly cry. It's so creative, and has superheroes in it, which I love.
If you're someone who isn't sure about it, just watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog anyway. I promise you will not be disappointed.
Dr. Horrible has a P.h.D. in horribleness, and awesomeness.
