The Dark Knight reaction bit with spoilers for Dr. Horrible

Early on, I was feeling annoyed that Rachel's only role seemed to be the love interest for Harvey and Bruce, and I was primed for this largely because of the criticisms I'd seen of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, so I was surprised that I hadn't sensed any backlash against The Dark Knight (I hadn't sought out spoilers, but my sense was that everyone thought it was A+++).

I was thinking later about the idea that Harvey turned bad because of the death of Rachel, and how people had talked about Dr. Horrible using the death of the loved woman as an origin story for a villain rather than a hero, but gee here was Dark Knight doing the same thing.
