God Damn It, Joss!
The title pretty much says it all. God damn it, Joss. I was surprised by the ending of Dr. Horrible. And then realized I shouldn't be surprised because it's f-ing Joss Whedon. Anyway, I'm still kind of in shock over the third act. Kind of nihilistic, more than definitely pessimistic, and the music is still superb. Penny singing about how she got the guy but feeling like something was missing, and Captain Hammer's song about how everyone is a hero (though less than he is) were the highlights; which is good since Dr. Horrible pretty much owned the last two episodes. And Dr. Horrible and Neil Patrick Harris are still heart achingly wonderful. Oh, Joss. I wish you didn't love to rip my heart out of my chest as often as you do!
