There's now a teaser trailer for Doctor Horrible's Sing-along Blog, which is Joss Whedon's online-only super villain musical. It stars Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion. Nathan Fillion plays a superhero, with Neil Patrick Harris playing Dr. Horrible, his nemesis.

Its the story of a low-rent super-villain, the hero who keeps beating him up, and the cute girl from the laundromat hes too shy to talk to. says Whedon.

DOOGIE!!!! Hey, I never knew that "Doogie Howser, M.D" had been created by Steven Bochco and David E. Kelley!

And now Joss Whedon. Neil Patrick Harris manages to work with genius, once again!

The teaser is a hoot.

Now the fan blog has the release dates of the episodes:

* Part 1 - Tuesday July 15
* Part 2 - Thursday July 17
* Part 3 - Saturday July 19


They'll only be online for free until July 20. After that, you can pay to see them, or at some point - buy a DVD.

It seems like an interesting experiment with a different distribution model.

Apparently, this project came about while Joss Whedon and his pals were out of work during the writer's strike.

It's a success! The website is crashed and nobody can watch it, including me.

It really is a musical (of sorts)! Who knew Neil Patrick Harris could sing (sort of)! Cute so far.

"...it smells like cumin."

It's pretty funny so far and it is definitely a musical.

People who liked the Buffy ("Once More With Feeling") musical should definitely like this.

I'm digging this. I especially liked the interaction between Captain Hammer and Dr. Horrible in Act II. I'm rooting for Dr. Horrible!

Yeah, I was going to say Neil Patrick Harris steals the show, but he basically is the show.

I can see that three episodes is going to seem way too short.

Wow, after seeing Act III, all I can say is "Grrr. Argh!"

It's definitely a Joss Whedon production.

Blink and you'll miss Drew Goddard as the supervillian Fake Thomas Jefferson.

Yah, I wonder how it plays all together in one viewing on DVD. It works really well in short doses, and yet you do kinda want to see what happens next too, so it probably works. But I wonder...

Good question. It might be kind of like Lolcats... amusing on a user forum, but kind of lame when printed in a book and sold at Barnes and Noble.

There are supposed to be lots of good special features on the DVD, though.

I quickly grew tried this. It ain't no Quadrophenia, that for sure. It gets silly quick, like some of Mel Brooks ole stuff.
