Personally, it's very rare that I use Hulu. There's better options available for those of us that aren't encumbered by the need to be legal.


No offense ThatDude but I think that's BS. I know there are a lot of people who have the same philosophy, but I think when certain networks are trying to adapt and give people options we should support that. Networks and record labels aren't even going to try anymore if the attempts they are making are falling to deaf ears. You can't just expect to get something for free, no advertisement, no anything but I think that's what a lot of people expect. The attitude is if you can't beat torrents or at least match them I'm going to keep downloading. That's pretty ridiculous IMO.


Agreed. ;-D

Watching a couple of short commercials is a very tiny price to pay in order to keep the free service free. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Cable + tivo = me not watching commercials on regular TV.
Internet + any number of non-torrent sites = me not watching commercials on internet TV.

Last I checked, I still get a cable/internet bill, so I'm not getting anything here for free.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

My one complaint about Hulu is their relatively slim pickings on movies. But I did watch Wolf on it the other night which was pretty good... Jack Nicholson does an amazing job anthromorphosizing into a wolf.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Yup. Most prisoners per capita, below most industrialized nations in math, lower life expectancy and higher infant mortality than most first-world nations, and a longer work-week than almost all of Europe. But hey! We gots us some free Internet TV!!!!

I love hulu. I too have never heard of it before the Superbowl but now I use it weekly to catch up on missed episodes. It's not as good as youtube if you just want to go on and watch random stuff, but it is entertaining if you know what you want to watch.

Oh I know; you just love that the US Murder Rate just beats the crap out of the developed world. Heck, we're about 4x-6x better at killing each other off than those European and Asian pansies. Now if only we could end that civil war in Sri Lanka we could inch up another couple of spots...
