The good: he’s bad.
The bad: he’s not that good at…wait, this sounds familiar.
The ugly: he reminds me of myself way too much, especially in his super-human ability to not get a date.
Best line: “I have a PhD in horribleness.”
He’s a super villain who dreams of (in no certain order) world conquest, joining the Evil League of Evil, and dating Penny, a girl he sees at the Laundromat. Although technically on the side of evil, he acts with the best of intentions, such as creating positive social change, making a lot of money, and getting Penny to go out with him (the thought of her inspires him to create a freeze ray). At the beginning of the series he has yet to advance to the stage of actually speaking to her, something with which I can painfully identify.
Note – technically Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog is listed as a TV series even though it was originally web-cast in three acts, but I count it as a short movie.
