Need something to help you pass the time today or usher in the weekend? Look no further: Hulu.com is here.
The new video site from NBC Universal and News Corp was officially launched last week, and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re missing something marvelous. The TV shows — which are very high quality and mostly full episodes — are from NBC, FOX, and the various affiliated cable networks like Bravo, FX, Sci Fi, Sundance and Oxygen. And the site offers movies, too (yes, full movies). And all of this for free (with occasional commercials). On demand.
Do I sound amazed? I kind of am. Here are some of the things I’ve been salivating over so far. (One caveat: Hulu.com is only available to U.S. users. Openhulu.com, after it has been updated, will provide access to users outside the U.S.)
Hulu has only Seasons 1 and 2 of Buffy right now, but what a great excuse to revisit the whole series from the beginning.
I can never decide who I love more: Tina Fey or Liz Lemon. Luckily, we don’t have to choose.
I loved this show when it first aired in the late ’90s. Hulu has Season 1, including “Sugar & Spice,” the episode in which Kimberly (Holly Marie Combs) kisses her friend Lisa (Alexondra Lee). I remember it well!
I missed this Natasha Henstridge action series the first time around. Now I can find out whether it’s any good.
I missed this one too. Gina Carano (Crush from American Gladiators) is in it!
I love love love Christine Lahti, though she wasn’t in Season 1, and that’s all Hulu has right now. Still, this show was great in general.
Unfortunately, Hulu has clips right now, not full episodes, but still. You take the good, you take the bad!
Aw, yeah! “You want fame? Well, fame costs. And right here’s where you start paying. In sweat.”
