Showcase: Dr. Horrible

July 23, 2008

I know this isn’t exactly low-budget or indie in the super-low-budget sense that I typically cater to, but it’s by Joss Whedon, got some great actors and is just a fun short with a musical twist. Starring Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day, this is essentially a cross between a musical and the Spiderman-esque romance story. It’s a fun, funny watch worth checking out if you’ve got the time. I don’t know anything about the inspiration or what it was made for, but they had some big VFX houses work on it, not to mention the known talent involved, but I got to see it free online, so I’m happy :). For some reason the pages with the full episodes don’t seem to be available anymore, but if you can find them then please do let me know and I’ll post the links up here.

EDIT: You can now watch the entire show at Lifehacker, plus read their interview with star Felicia Day (she sounds awesome!)
