There was a time when hearing Neil Patrick Harris and the words “Dr. Horrible” meant only one thing: Doogie Howser reruns.

Were our evenings to be spent playing board games with friends or family?!
Was this Communist Russia?! As they (by ‘they’ I mean ‘them’ and you know already who ‘they’ are) say, though, ‘it’s always darkest before the dawn.’
Salvation came from Joss Whedon.
