Now Dr. Horrible Is Here/To Make You Quake With Fear

No matter how much you love something, you love it so much more when you have the honor of showing it to someone else for the first time.

Enter Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

I was watching tv with someone who loves most things geeky. We often read comic books together, watch IT Crowd, and play card games. So I was shocked when I referenced something from Dr. Horrible and he stared back at me blankly.

He'd never watched it because he hates musicals. Makes sense. Unless you've seen it- then you know that somehow, it's okay. Kind of like Avenue Q.

This is so true that when it finished, he went back to listen to one of the songs again.

My first Dr. Horrible viewing was only this year so I remember well that feeling of amazement that something this good existed without my having seen it.

It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Here's why Joss Whedon did this, in his own words.

Also, this is NPH at his finest. I love NPH in How I Met Your Mother...I do. But nothing really tops this.
