Dr. Horrible Crashes, But You Can Watch It Here!


Taking more than 200,000 hits an hour yesterday crashed the site for the online-only release of "Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long-Blog", a three-episode sci-fi musical comedy from Joss Whedon. Oh, yes I knew that was likely - and it also crashed the sites for Whedonesque, and some other fan-related sites too. But today things have settled down and now Dr. Horrible is up and running.

I had placed a video on this post via a mirror web-site, for fellow geeks addicted to Whedon's work such as myself. But since the original site is back up, I've removed the clip.

What the heck am I talking about? Dr. Horrible is a short comedy web-series, following one would-be comic book villian known as Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) as he tries to gain Bad Guy Status but is constantly thwarted by the heroic Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion). And it's a musical, too. Wacky, yes and nerdy to boot, but the first episode was hilarious and two more are on the way over the next four days.

So just go to the Dr Horrible main page and all the details are there.
