Hulu Girl

Most of you probably know about Hulu by now--that fantastic media repository that airs television shows, films, and movie trailers (my favorite, as you know). If you don't, allow me to talk it up a little.

Hulu airs clips of shows such as Saturday Night Live as well as full episodes of certain series, both current and past; for example, I can watch full episodes of something as far out of reach as The Dick Van Dyke Show and as current as Lie to Me. For current shows, you will usually find that the five most recent episodes are available, so if you want to check out a new series but missed the premier, you can take a look at it online.

That particular feature is useful for me, because if I didn't have Hulu, I would (literally) never get to watch Community. You see, Community comes on at 8:00 on Thursday. And I have a long-standing commitment at that very same time. It's a tragedy. But that's the true beauty of Hulu--I can catch up with my favorite (current) show within two days of the original airing, so I'm never really very far behind. And that, my friends, is fantastic.

The one thing I will warn you about is that if you intend to use Hulu, you will need a good Internet connection; otherwise the streaming will freeze up. But if you are able to use it, and are willing to sit through a few commercials (almost all of them are less than one minute long, and are an important part of keeping Hulu alive), this is the place for you. Enjoy!
