More Horrible

 I’ve now re-watched Act II of Dr. Horrible. The first few seconds are priceless: Dr. Horrible blinking at the camera, too stunned at what has just happened to even articulate. The pained expression is completely convincing.

“On the Rise” is a good song. I like Capt. Hammer’s reactions: brushing off his shoulder where the man at the homeless shelter touched him, cringing from the proximity of ducks (or swans, whatever those are) as he and Penny sit on the park bench. The duet works nicely. Love the harmony.

“Captain Hammer threw a car at my head.”

Love the Bad Horse posse (for what else would you call them?)

“Is that your catchphrase?”

“Thoroughbred of sin” is a great title.

“Goodness, look at my wrist.”

“These are not the hammer.” That crooked grin. Nasty.

“Brand New Day” is a great song, love the quick patter at the beginning. “…when I give you the keys to a shiny new Australia…”

Can’t wait for Act III.
