Billy, (aka Dr. Horrible) has two main goals in life (besides taking over the world): to join the Evil League of Evil and to win over his lady love, Penny. But his archenemy (the superhero Captain Hammer) always seems to thwart his every move. Billy has a plan that could get him into the Evil League of Evil and win Penny’s heart, but only if the irritating Captain Hammer could stay away.
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was created as an online miniseries musical by fan-favorite Joss Whedon. Neil Patrick Harris plays Billy/Dr. Horrible to pure perfection. He’s sadly sweet, funny, and completely loveable. Felicia Day is Penny, the shy and demure focus of both Billy and Captain Hammer’s attentions. And Captain Hammer is played by Nathan Fillion, who much like his Castle character is pompous and narcissistic and hysterical.
Besides the satirical premise, the other highlights are when Billy bursts into song. These unconventional characters and songs make for a hilarious and extremely entertaining musical. It’s fresh, witty, and absolutely charming. And now this cult hit is available on Blu-ray, which I’ll be watching again and again.
