Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008) - Quickie Review

Recommended For: Whedonites and people who don't mind getting a song stuck in their head for the next 5 years.

Heroes: Although the antagonist, I suppose Captain Hammer was the hero.

Villains: Dr. Horrible

Diabolical Scheme: In an effort to join Bad Horse's Evil League of Evil, Dr. Evil wanted to off nemesis Captain Hammer with a home made death ray.

Coolest Moment(s): Act II has to be my favorite, from the opening song to the laundromat comedy. The reveal of Bad Horse is also a highlight.

Worst Moment: None really, the worst thing about this is how short it is with undetermined plans for any sort of follow-up or happy ending.

Review in 50 Words or Less: Its a musical! Its a comedy! Its Dr. Horrible. A smarmy hero and heartless villain combine with catchy songs and quotable lines making for a brisk but memorable tale that forges a fresh path in oft tread superhero genre. How could you not like it?
