If you watched the Emmy’s last night and thought the presenter, Neil Patrick Harris was awesome, you love the show How I Met Your Mother, or used to watch Doogie Howser, M.D. then this hilarious super hero musical is for you. I discovered it while searching on Amazon a few weeks ago, but it started as a free internet show when the writer’s strike was on in America. It’s the brainchild of Joss, Zack and Jed Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame. Dr Horrible is an aspiring super villan who is trying to get into the Evil League of Evil and also get the girl of his dreams. However, his nemesis, Captain Hammer always seems to get in the way. After being defeated so many times he decides he has to take drastic measures. Neil Patrick Harris is absolutely amazing as Dr Horrible and he’s a great singer as well as a great actor. The songs are hilarious, with such titles as ‘My Freeze Ray,’ ‘A Man’s Gotta Do,’ and ‘Everyone’s a Hero.’
You can watch the whole show (in three parts) here on Youtube. You won’t be disappointed.
