Hulu anyone?...

Uncle Barky asks "Have you hulu'd yet?"
He reports that you probably haven't hulu'd yet. "The new service is barely brand new, but it's already a treasure trove.
Backed by NBC Universal and News Corporation (parent company of Fox), is the must-see Web site of the year for TV-philes of all ages. You'll have to register and get a password first. That could take a day or two, or longer.

After that, there is such a thing as a free lunch. Hulu's eclectic list of programming choices, in just its very formative stages, ranges from Hill Street Blues to Family Guy, from Doogie Howser, M.D. to Scrubs.

The time travels are the most tantalizing. For no charge, you can dial up the complete premiere episodes and more of Emmy caliber series such as Hill Street, Doogie, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Miami Vice, The Practice, St. Elsewhere, WKRP in Cincinnati, Remington Steele, Picket Fences and even the original Lorne Greene-fronted Battlestar Galactica...

Hulu also lets you catch up on an array of ongoing series. For now, all of them are either Fox or NBC Universal properties, including Heroes, House, The Office, Prison Break, Friday Night Lights, etc., etc...

The current hulu menu lists 158 titles, including a handful of movies such as Sideways and October Sky. Some early commenters complain that the movies are edited for content, which would be a dumb thing to do if true. You'll find far more to like than dislike about hulu, though. It makes a too-good-to-be-true first impression, and that's an understatement..."

Thanks for your comment, Bluedreamer27. Are you going to be able to handle a long writers' strike if the current TV season gets cancelled because of it?

my blog is not that influential and have short range of readers
so i cant say i can
although if someone starts that strike
i will certainly support it

Keep working on it, Bluedreamer27! You never know...but someone influential might just stumble across your blog. I was excited to see my blog linked on the follow professional site:
I have never been to the site until I saw traffic was coming to me from the site. I am supporting the writers' during this strike. I don't think their demand of just 2% of the total revenue earned from their work will go to them.
