Okay Whedon haters, you can skip this post as there is nothing you’ll want to read here.

The first installment of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog dropped today (streaming via Hulu), and at first the episode looked to be really lame – Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) reading e-mails on his video blog.  But wait a couple minutes and the music kicks in and becomes a really wonderful little piece full of comedy, romance, and yes, music.

The entire three part series is only going to online this week only, so if you like Whedon, evil villains looking for love, and musicals (who doesn’t love a musical?) then point your browser to Dr. Horrible’s site.

Oh, and that getup Dr. Horrible is wearing is the exact same costume for another superhero action adventure film showing up somewhere in the near future.

Update: Even though this three act musical is said to only be available for one week, and only available at the Dr. Horrible website, you can download all three episodes and keep them for as long as you like via the iTunes Store.

    What’s wrong with iTunes – it’s great, plus it doesn’t cost you anything…

    “Hermit Says: Ok, I installed it, just to find that I have TO PAY!!! WTF”

    That’s why Whedon “neglected” to have sufficient computing server resources. He wants people to PAY for it.

    Hmm. I’ve heard these rumors of “the torrents”.
