Dr. Horrible, an aspiring supervillain with his own video blog, is attempting to join the prestigious Evil League of Evil (led by the legendary thoroughbred of sin, Bad Horse), but his plans are usually foiled by the egotistical superhero Captain Hammer. Horrible’s life is thrown for a loop when he falls in love with Penny, a beautiful and optimistic advocate for the homeless he meets at the laundromat, a situation which complicates itself even further when Penny begins dating the boorish, oafish Hammer after he apparently saves her life. Faced with the task of impressing the League, can Horrible overcome his own incompetence to ruin the day, kill the hero, and still get the girl? —IMDb

A good cheapie web miniseries deserving of cult status and a little critical text on the experiment of web-only release, and otherwise probably uninteresting to anyone else not direct fans of some of the participants in the show, such as Joss Whedon and Neil Patrick Harris. --PolarisDiB
There is so much heart in this, and it gets broken.The songs are great and even though it's always campy and fun, there are real and dark emotions. I find I laugh all the way through, but the ending always hits home hard. It draws me so into the world, into the characters, that by the end I'm eating it all up and it's pushing all the right buttons. The last line is perfect and tells the whole tale, you see his truth.
