Memo to Joss Whedon:
We are but one small (yet mighty) army of fans who worship your televised productions (well, not so much with Dollhouse, but every genius produces things that can safely be categorized as Lesser Works).
Sure, you're riding high (or higher than ever, really) on the back of the monstrous box office hauled in by The Avengers. And now reports have it that Marvel's TV division and ABC are in discussion to bring a show set in "The Avengers universe" to television.
That's all well and good. Really. I'm sure that such a show would be successful.
However, I must point out that if we're talking about extending a successful franchise tied to you, Joss Whedon, that involves superheroes and super villains, why not bring back the beloved web series adored by music fans, NPH loyalists, and geeks interwebs-wide.
Yes, we're talking Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog here… as you have likely sleuthed out by now.
Let's refresh ourselves with a taste of the gloriousness that was, shall we?
The potential showcased in the three-part sci-fi musical tragicomedy is nearly maddening, and now is as good a time as any to request, nay, demand more!
Thanks in advance etc. etc.,

Now, here's a clip that kicks off the series:
I love the lo-fi webcam aesthetic that gradually and amiably evolves into an epic, strange, hilarious, and even poignant gem of a tour de force. And its stars – Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion, and Felicia Day – are so spectacular together that it seems a (horrible) crime not to reunite them for more Dr. Horrible misadventures.
And did I mention that much like Buffy the Vampire Slayer's musical episode, "Once More, with Feeling," Dr. Horrible's songs will lock in your brain as though an evil genius stuck them up in there with a freeze ray, or some such devious creation?
And finally, there's the Whedon A Game dialog that comes with his best TV projects. For example:
"Bad Horse is legend. He rules the League with an iron hoof."
