“I hold a PhD in horribleness.”

If you haven’t been watching Dr. Horrible, get on it.

Like now.

It’s funny and bizarre and romantic.  It’s also one of the few musicals I enjoy.  (The others that I can think of are Monty Python’s Spam-A-Lot and Joss Whedon‘s previous musical venture, Once More With Feeling, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s infamous sixth season.)

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog was born out of Whedon’s frustration with the WGA strike earlier this year.  The goal of the project was to create something inexpensive and enjoyable that circumvented the Guild rules.

I’d say he succeeded.

All three acts are up right now.  Take a bit (the entire thing is only forty five minutes) and watch them all.  They’ll only be up through tomorrow (the twentieth of July) and if you don’t catch them by then, you’ll have to wait for the DVD.

The DVD, by the way, will contain “amazing extras.”  Dr. Horrible is also available on iTunes, probably only through tomorrow as well, but I’m not certain.
