Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog

Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog is 
 "the musical tale of that [eponymous] villain, played by a 'still just recognisable as Doctor Doogie Hauser' Neil Patrick Harris, as he tilts quixotically at his nemesis - Captain Hammer (Firefly's Nathan Fillion)." Or so says the Times Online
It's written by Josh Whedon of Buffy/Firefly fame/infamy.  I love the vocal coach bit, and the awesome-for-internet production values (low six figures). 

According to NPR, when the series launched Tuesday on, so many people tried to watch it that the server crashed.  (Whedon says they were getting about 1,000 hits a minute.)  The second episode came out yesterday, and was just as popular.  After Sunday it will cost $1.99 per episode, so enjoy the slim freebie window.
