Your Presence Is Compelled

The Common Man requests, nay demands, your presence at Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog when you have 45 minutes to kill. But check it out today. Starting Sunday, you will need to shell out $1.99 to download an episode (or just wait for the DVD). It will be worth the money, but you get to see all three episodes for free until then. Joss Whedon's new creation, starring Neil Patrick Harris and Whedon-muse Nathan Fillion, is groundbreaking in the way it delivers original content to consumers. "Doing [the online series] was an effort to send a message to the community that there was another way ... that we could create content and ultimately create jobs without the studios," he said. It's terrific; the story is terrific and leaves open the possibility for future hilarity.
