Neil Patrick Harris, in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, is at his finest as a villain you almost have to root for. His musically inclined attempt at trying simultaneously to woo the girl and join a prestigious league of super villains will have you questioning your own morals. Accompanied by the likes of Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion, it’s one of the funniest, silliest, most easily digestible musicals I’ve ever seen.
Community, by Dan Harmon, is a witty show about a group of misfits that’s as hilarious as it is smart. It will make anyone who didn’t go to community college glad of it, while also making those who did go proud they went. It’s funny and self-aware with a multitude of running jokes that stretch through the entire series. If you’ve ever been curious as to what 8-bit Joel McHale looks like, this show is definitely one to check out.
