Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible Is Pure Evil Genius
Allow me to rave for a moment about something that has nothing to do with the environment. Actually, there is a sprinkle of philanthropy in the plot-line, so perhaps that’s my angle. Either way, if you have a love of anything to do with Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Firefly — stop reading this blabber of adulation right now and click here.
Still need some convincing?
During the recent strike in Hollywood, director/writer Joss Whedon created a short web series called Dr. Horrible about an up and coming evil scientist (played by Neil Patrick Harris) who falls in love with an activist for the homeless (Felicia Day), while also battling his nemesis, Captain Hammer (Firefly’s Nathan Fillion).
Oh, and it’s a musical as well.
Combine the best of Whedon’s wit and humor from Buffy and Firefly with the genius of Stephen Sondheim and you’ve got Dr. Horrible. Acts II and III are definitely the strongest musically — so make sure you click thru after the initial taste. This is one web event worth consuming.
Let’s hope there’s a sequel. An evil sequel.
