The Hammer Is My Penis

by Lauren Gitlin July 17, 2008 3:36 pm
The Hammer Is My Penis By no means would I say I'm a Joss Whedon freak. Or at least I wasn't. Until now. Up to the advent of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, I was one of the uninitiated. Now though. Now. Joss for President. His genius casting (could Neil Patrick Harris be any awesomer? I can't even contemplate), frankly surprising knack for musical composition, penchant for creating characters like the still-faceless Bad Horse, Thoroughbred of Sin and penning lines like the aforementioned "The hammer is my penis" (it's all in the delivery, trust me)... I'm a convert. I'm a butt-crazy, beatific member of the cult of Joss. The second installment of the three-part series -- which is already generating talk of a Broadway and a film adaptation -- is so disarmingly weird and hilarious, I might actually have to change my Feelings About Musicals status from Aggressively Indifferent to Subjectively Stoked. Mr. Whedon, I salute you.

In brief: This episode finds our anti-hero Dr. Horrible continuing on his quest to be accepted into the Evil League of Evil, aided and abetted by his simpering side-kick Moist, whose superpower is the ability to dampen things. Smug, muscle-bound hottie Captain Hammer is about to seal the deal with Dr. Horrible's crush object Penny, whom he cops to wanting to bed merely because he knows how much Dr. Horrible wants her. What a dick! So Dr. Horrible does what anyone would do under similar circumstances: he decides to kill his competitor. I mean, wouldn't you?
