Act I of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog? The Opposite of Horrible

Words can not express how much in love with Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog I am… You know it’s a Whedon-penned production when I’ve already got a dozen or so quotable lines written down and I’ve only watched it once so far. And, umm, the first part is only a little short of 14 minutes long. [...]

Friday Fun: Famous Last Words

Happy Friday everyone! Since we’re all missing so many of our favorite characters while we wait for the new Fall TV Season to begin, we thought we’d honor a few of those characters who left us far too soon. Some of them reached an untimely demise, some just had to move on, some of them [...]

So now the question is… which scripted show best fills that summer fix need? I’ve left out shows [...]
