Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon shot this whimsical, bittersweet charmer (also available on iTunes) during the recent writers' strike. It's a small-scale musical, 40-odd minutes long, about a would-be supervillain (Neil Patrick Harris) who can't quite balance his plans for world domination with his crush on Penny (Felicia Day), a girl from the laundromat. Penny, in turn, is swept up in the arms of a properly stalwart superhero, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion). Yet she has a troubling sense that his virtues don't quite make up for his dumb narcissism. It's like a hummable Heroes.
