I started watching Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog a while back and could only get through about the first 2 minutes. Normally I can’t stand musicals. And the first couple minutes didn’t just grab me. But after hearing rave reviews about it from The Signal podcast, I figured I’d give it a second shot. This time I watched all three acts…and loved it! What a crackup!
Here’s a classic exchange between Dr. Horrible and Penny - the woman on whom he has a huge crush:
Dr. Horrible: I wanna do great things, you know? I wanna be an achiever. Like Bad Horse.
Penny: The Thoroughbred of Sin?
Dr. Horrible: I meant Ghandi.
Pure gold. I highly recommend it. It’s less than 45 minutes for all three acts and funny as hell.
