Joss Whedon’s (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly) response to the 2007–2008  WGA strike was to gather friends and family to create an independent minimusical exclusively for Internet distribution: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. A Whedonesque blend of irreverent pop culture humor, a surprisingly affecting emotional core, and generally cool stuff, DHSAB introduces the lovelorn, would-be supervillain Billy/Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris), pining for the lovely Laundromat habitué Penny (Felicia Day) and craving admittance to the prestigious Evil League of Evil. Thwarting him at every turn is Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), a lout of a superhero who basks in the love of an adoring public and, crushingly, Penny herself. We blame the Wonderflonium.

  • It's so nice to see such a wonderfull young man progress from killing me with Pop-Culture references to killing me by creating Pop-Culture itself. Is there any chance that there could be a similar project to keep folks so wonderfully and creatively busy in the future should a S.A.G. strike ensue? Anything else you wanted to make in your "off time"?

    1. Does it matter to Joss and company that amateur drama groups are putting Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog onstage without permission?
    2. When can we expect see a more formal, efficient way of obtaining performance rights for Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog?

  • Joss- what gave you the idea to write an internet show about a mad scientist musical? Actors- how did you first react to hearing about it?

    What was you're favorite scene/song?

  • Fury of Solace may have been rejected from the Evil League of Evil, but his story doesn't end there. Bad things are coming... http://www.furyofsolace.com

  • For Joss - have you actually made any money from "Dr. Horrible" as of yet? If the project never turns a profit, would that in any way detract from the experience of having total creative control over "dr. Horrible", or in having been the creator of a paradigm-changing moment in TV history? As a follow-up, has Damon told you how "Lost" ends?
