“Dr. Horrible” To Rule Tonight’s Emmy Awards!

It’s a brand new day and the sun is high, all the birds are singing that your gonna die! Oh, and Neil Patrick Harris is going to reprise his Dr. Horrible character from the great Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog in a production number during tonight’s Emmy Awards!  In case you don’t know what Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog is, during the 2007-2008 writer’s strike, Joss Whedon, along with his brothers Jed and Zack, wrote and produced this musical comedy starring Neil Patrick Harris along with Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion (hopefully they both appear tonight as well) and posted it online for free.  It’s a tale about a supervillian (Dr. Horrible – Harris), his nemisis (Captain Hammer – Fillion), and their mutual love interest (Penny – Day).   It quickly developed a cult following because it is awesome!  As it turns out, what Joss Whedon makes just messing around is better than most stuff on TV!

Of course, that means watching the Emmy Awards, and I can’t stand award shows (though having Harris as the host will probably make this one more bearable than most).  That’s why I am very glad to have a Tivo, so that I can FF through the boring parts and just get to the part that I want to watch!

If you haven’t seen Dr Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, just click the embedded video below for a clip. I promise you that it is great!
