Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is a musical tragicomedy series of you tube videos. It tells the story of Dr. Horrible, an aspiring evil genius, trying to get into the league of supervillians; Captain Hammer, his nemesis; and Penny, their mutual love interest.
The lead roll is done by Neil Patrick Harris, better known for his roll as Barney in HIMYM.
This short film has won tons of awards. My general opinion is that I hate musicals, but I watched all of these episodes and I was surprisingly amused. Bad ending though, but catchy tunes, good humour and a good script in general.
I added the trailer, but you can catch all of the videos on you tube. I checked the official website, but apparently the embedded video uses hulu, which can only be streamed within the USA. Lame!
