Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, available online for a short time only


Get it while it's hot. Available through this weekend only, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is a three-act Web series featuring Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Horrible, a wannabe mad scientist evildoer who video-blogs about his plans for world domination, his application to the Evil League of Evil, his arch-enemy Captain Hammer, and his crush on the cute girl at the local laundromat.

Oh, and it's a musical.

Episodes one and two are available now. Episode three goes online on Saturday.

Watch it.

Trust me.

Watch it.

    You got inspired from Larry or you are the one who pointed this to him?

    I know it might be totally unrelated, but two bloggers whom I follow on a daily basis writes on the same topic same day, and history says they are friends, makes we wonder.

    [Hm, popular director, available for only 2 days (thus creating urgency), lots of buzz — yeah, if two people blog about the same thing it must be a conspiracy. -Raymond (P.S., Larry and I have barely met. I hadn’t even heard of him until I found his blog. I don’t know who started this rumor that we’re friends.)]

    It’s like watching a train wreck.  You can’t stop looking.

    Ok, a very funny train wreck – with clowns, I guess.

    Clowns and monkeys.  And they are getting squished by the caboose.

    And instead of blood, lots of paper graffiti.

    No midgets, though.  Midgets would not be funny.

    Maybe this just isn’t "my thing", but a musical about a stalking evil overlord? :)

    It’s awesome, only too bad that they do not want Money from European people (Only on the US and Canada iTunes store) :-( Well, maybe when the DVD comes out the producers change their mind. I mean – there are actually people willing to pay for something that is free just because it’s good, and then they don’t let us.

    Anyway, I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to Part III :-)

    I’ll download all the acts and watch them on my schedule, gosh darnit. Pushy mad scientists these days…

  6. Volker Ehring says:

    I hope I find a downloader for streaming flash to watch it later, I don’t really understand what’s it about or get it.

    But ought to be great, considering the Buffy-musical episode :-)

    It’s from Joss Whedon!!

    ?

    It’s not complicated.

  8. No, he’s not an Evil Overlord.  He’s just a random Evil Genius who’s TRYING to become an overlord.  Obviously, the first (major) step is to get into the Evil League of Evil.  And you just can’t do that without a Doomsday weapon (Even if it doesn’t even cause any damage, it just has to exist).

  9. Echoing Raymonds comment.  Actually we’d corresponded by email for about 3 years before we met last year for the very first time.

  10. Dr Horrible says:

    Part III was up around 9 PM earlier today when I guessed the URL for it.  I don’t know what this Saturday business is about.

  11. Danny says:

    Hmm, definitely Ray & me don’t share the same taste. It’s crap all day long and did not even made me smile. Sorry Ray, this time you blew it (like Vista, but that’s another food of fish who’s prepared with a different sausage of snake).

  12. Jare says:

    I found it absolutely boring and pointless too.

  13. Boris says:

    It is only mildly amusing, and I really liked Firefly.

  14. Kevin says:

    Yeah, how can you not love this short movie?  Neil Patrick Harris is handsome–and a hoot. Who knew he could sing?  And the whole thing of making fun of blogs and bloggers–how great is that?

    Has anyone mentioned it seems a perfect metaphor for our dolt President??    Think about it–likeable, not very bright but ambitious guy has big plans, they come to be and wreck things, in the end.    It’s perfect.  It’s W all over, guys.

    It’s fantastic and it has great laughs and singing, too.

  15. Kevin says:

    and "Moist" was a great idea.

    Just wait ’til Halowe’en, folks.  It’ll be all "Dr. Horrible", "The Hammer" and "Moist" costumes!

  16. Puckdropper says:

    Thanks for the link, Raymond.  It was excellent, well worth opening the link.  (I’m usually suspicious when someone says to watch something… I’m not a big fan of motion pictures.)

    Can you laugh and sing like that?

  17. Chris says:

    Great, now I have this tune repeating over and over inside my head. (An "Ohrwurm", for those of you interested in German.)

    Thanks, Raymond.

  18. Bill says:

    I liked it.

    Can anyone tell me the name of the style of coat he wears? (Dr Horrible, white, buttons on shoulder)

  19. I think I have a new found respect for NPH.  Didn’t much care for him as Doogie, but this was actually quite funny.  The guy does in fact have some comic timing to him (or just a damned good director).  And Felecia Day is just hot all the way around.  So I have a thing for pasty redheads.  Someone has to.  <eg>

  20. Jim d. says:

    I’m surprised at the number of responses here from people who didn’t like it.  I thought it was brilliant.  How can you *not* love a song that includes the line:

    "It’s a brand new day and the sun is high. And the birds are singing that you’re gonna die!"

    I’m disappointed that no one ever moved his chair.  Perhaps people stop doing that once you get a PhD.
