Once more, with feeling...awesome people watchingDr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blognot

I somehow hadn't yet watched the 43-minute video, and I have to say, it may be the best thing to come out of the recent writers' strike. Created by Joss Whedon with the help of his family members, Dr. Horrible stars Neil Patrick Harris as an evil genius who's doing all he can to get into the Evil League of Evil. Fillion plays the dashing-but-shallow superhero Captain Hammer who continually thwarts his plans. It's a one-off musical comedy from the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and the upcoming Dollhouse—in other words, an instant cult classic. As a costume at Dragon*Con, Dr. Horrible was only topped by the Joker, Captain Jack Sparrow and half-naked Spartans. But that's not counting all the Captain Hammer t-shirts.
