Newstalk: Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Tonight on Culture Shock, the Newstalk 106 Arts and Culture show with Fionn Davenport, we're discussing the internet mini-series, Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

Aspiring super-villain Dr. Horrible wants to join the Evil League of Evil and win the heart of Penny, the girl of his dreams, but his nemesis, Captain Hammer, stops him at every turn in this three-part musical.
The three part movie was written by writer/director Joss Whedon, creator and head writer of the well-known and popular television programs Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly.

Recognise the main actor - Neil Patrick Harris? Once upon a time he used to be Doogie Howser, M.D!

The Arts and Culture show is on Newstalk 106-108fm from 7pm. You can listen live through this link.

Have a look at the show. Let me know what you think of it!


  1. haha - Thanks for this! It made me laugh and it is good to see a few actors taking a chance to do something different.

  2. I'll be tuning in! I loved Dr Horrible. It had a very elegant, unexpected ending I thought. Nathan Fillion was great in Firefly and NPH is the best thing about How I Met Your Mother.

  3. I haven't seen it, but the musical episode of Buffy is generally regarded as one of the best musicals ever... plus it's one of very few that I like!

  4. Well, how did you get on?

    (Once again, will it be podcasted?)
