Everyone’s a hero in their own way. You and you and mostly me and you

As I write this blog I wonder who hasn't seen Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog? Chances are you've heard about it maybe even read about it? It's been all over the media since it debuted on June 15, 2008. It was free on the official site for 5 days before it was put on iTunes for $1.99 each episode. Now they've made a deal with where you can watch it for free.

"Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is a 43-minute musical film produced exclusively for Internet distribution. It tells the story of Dr. Horrible, the aspiring supervillain alter ego of Billy(played by Neil Patrick Harris); Captain Hammer, his nemesis; and Penny, their mutual love interest. The movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, his brothers Zack Whedon (a television writer) and Jed Whedon (a composer), and Jed's fiancée, actress Maurissa Tancharoen. The writing team penned the musical during the WGA writers' strike. The idea was to create something small and inexpensive, yet professionally done, in a way that would circumvent the issues that were being protested during the strike."
