Sadly I might be too late with this announcement, but just in case they leave the free episodes up longer, this is not to be missed. Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer fame) partnered up with other talented, out-of-work due to the writers strike folk to pull off an Internet-only distributed mini-epic. As explained in the site's Master Plan page:
Once upon a time, all the writers in the forest got very mad with the Forest Kings and declared a work-stoppage. The forest creatures were all sad; the mushrooms did not dance, the elderberries gave no juice for the festival wines, and the Teamsters were kinda pissed. (They were very polite about it, though.) During this work-stoppage, many writers tried to form partnerships for outside funding to create new work that circumvented the Forest King system.
Read entire the master plan for the full story.
Yes, that is Neil Patrick Harris in the banner. Seriously, don't miss this. http://www.drhorrible.com
