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.

In the opening sequence, during which Dr. Horrible is talking directly to camera, many Joss Whedon fans mistakenly believed that the out of focus shape hanging in the window on the left was a model of the spaceship Serenity, a nod to Whedon's show, Firefly (2002).

If you simply enjoy being entertained, this enchantingly short trio of episodes sheer is perfection itself.
Congratulations to Joss Wheedon for giving his planet such a very sweet little gift.
i'm not much of a fan of musicals as a rule, but this one plays so cheekily on all things geeky it's hard to resist.
Too often these days, performances rarely reveal that the cast absolutely enjoyed their rolls so much. Knowing that these people all performed for free and for friendship makes this one all the more enjoyable to watch.
So many Directors with so much money & talent at their disposal really do miss the point, and the point is to put your heart into it.
So obviously made with love, and the help of friends, Dr Horrible will make you smile over & over!
