Plot Summary: In the wake of a global apocalypse, a famous YouTube personality uses his remaining battery life on his laptop to record his long-procrastinated musical.
Note: VFX artist, Teague Chrystie (Fringe) went off and made himself a kick-ass short film musical. So impressed I was by this delightful, creative and entertaining effort, I asked Teague to join me for this commentary on his work. We discuss DIY makeup, "saving the fish", web video culture and some musical theory. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your player, and please check out Teague's film commentary podcast, Down In Front. It's like this but, you know, good.

It's the first ever (as far as we know) fan commentary for Joss Whedon's web-friendly sensation, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog! The story concerns an ambitious super-villain (Neil Patrick Harris) who's obsessed with the Evil League of Evil, his crime-fighting nemesis (Nathan Fillion) who's obsessed with, uh, himself and the bright, big-hearted activist (Felicia Day) who's caught between them. On top of all that, there's singing! Really awesome singing! With words and everything!
Please join Nick Jimenez, Will Ritchie and myself as we bring up Stephen Sondheim, Depeche Mode, Once More, With Feeling and appoint Felicia Day as the spokesperson for frozen yogurt! After all, it's about time this delicious treat had some solid representation, right? Remember to listen for my preemptive countdown before starting the program.
By the way, the hammer is my podcast. :)

Lisa Tobias drops in for some Bicardi, pizza and The Guild. We chuckle and guffaw our way through the complete first season DVD of this hilarious and creative web-based series. The show is written by, produced by and stars Felicia Day as a sweet, plucky young violinist struggling with her addiction to online gaming and the other players she "socializes" with. The situation intensifies when one of her fellow gamers finds out where she lives and inserts himself into her life, with his overbearing mother trailing close behind.
Lisa and I discuss babies in cages, stalkers and the monetary value of a person's awesomeness. As per usual, please listen for the preemptive countdown before selecting "Play All" on your DVD.
