Dr. Horrible

For those Nerds like me who enjoy musicals, I have a great one fore you. Late one night Nick (Friend) popped in a CD and started singing to it full blast. He then later explained to me that it was the sound track to a musical called Dr. Horrible. After looking it up and watching it on Netflix (yes it is on there) I fell in love with it. I immediatly ordered the soundtrack and downloaded the song "My freeze ray" to my phone. The musical is beautifully plotted and amazingly constructed. If you are interested in 'How I met your mother' than you may just love this, romantics too. 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? (Ted Z.)
