It's been a long week. I doubt even a Palin thread is going to generate enough clickies to buy a six of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Give Palin a rest mods/subbys.

hulu is great but I hate how they don't add full episodes or all of the good parts from shows like snl.

They play full episodes of a lot of shows. I can never remember to watch The Office or Family Guy when it's on, but I can watch it any time on Hulu.com. Thanks, Hulu.com!

You know, there's more than a few hot brunette MILFs with glasses out there who don't spew neo-conservative BS every time they open their mouth, and some of them are willing to take off their clothes, so I really don't think we need to mention or think about Sarah Palin anymore. Ever.

Okay, not to stop the great "Hulu sucks/No, it doesn't" debate of 2008, but do YOU have a site similar to Hulu which you find to be of superior quality?

Also, what is it about Hulu which, as you say, sucks?

I watch shows on Hulu has much as possible to show Tv Execs. that it's not watching commercials that bothers me, but watching 10 minutes worth of commercials each break.

If they can get a enough views at Hulu, maybe TV world will wake up that having 10 minutes worth of commercials for a '30 minute' show doesn't work now and give people another option then Tivo or downloading it is a good idea.

But Canadians are not allowed to access it.

for all you dumbasses who cant get to it because of a foreign IP address, just hook thru an american proxy server and you're good to go.

1) Websense started blocking it (at least at my work)
2)???
3) Many shows also went on hiatus in November because for some reason the new metric is to air six shows and then take a three month break until the next six episodes come out.
4) Watching Hulu right now, (I didn't say I didn't know how to get around Websense).
5) Profit

Pfft. Unlikely Sarah will be back. She's screwing up pretty badly in Alaska.

It was easy to be popular when oil was over $100/bbl. and you were passing out checks to everyone. It's going to be a little tougher now that she has to explain why she didn't save the money for a rainy day, why they have to dig into the state savings, and why the investment funds have all tanked on the market.

She'll have a real challenge now. And she'll fail horribly, because she has no skills or experience.

No, there is no similar site, and since Hulu does NOT work in Canada, that is what sucks.

Can't watch any Hulu videos outside of the USA, and most proxies are slow as hell.

So far I have found four or five tv shows (Daily Show/Colbert, Arrested Development maybe old Hitchcock--"Revenge"-- or Simpsons) and about six or seven movies worth watching on Hulu.

I wouldn't go so far to say it outright sucks but taking into account it is halting, slow and often freezes (cable connection) not that great.

Overall I give the Netflix "watch now" service a higher rating.

The reason the non-Americans don't like Hulu is because they can't use it. And Netflix isn't free.

The December numbers will be worse. Fewer (or no) new episodes of their most popular shows (Family Guy, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, etc.) tend to have that effect.

Things will probably pick up in January, when Battlestar Galactica and Burn Notice return.

How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, It's Always Sunny, Psych. I like Hulu a lot (Sidereel is my backup). Hulu is never choppy or slow for me. Now, Youku...

I kinda have to agree with Harvey up above. I'm sure the slump has quite a bit to do with shows going into Repeats for the Winter. I know it's slowed my Hulu Watching time. I have to say as someone who works 5:30pm until 5:30am, Hulu is a god-send. I actually started watching TV again... (Mostly at work :P)

I also enjoy watchtvsitcoms.com - The quality is a lot worse but I can normally get shows there that I can't at hulu (such as House the same day and some showtime shows) and Netflix's instant watch rocks.

Between the 3 my midnight shift is fairly well covered.

-Watched Grey Knight yesterday, pretty poor flick, but who can resist a Civil War Zombie Movie eh?
 
2008-12-12 08:20:20 PM
Im usually out on thursday nights so its cool to watch always sunny on hulu.

one of these days i'll get around to watching the office eps i've missed. the only other current show i watch is lost and thats online too so i'm living large.

Entire first season. Damn, but that's a good show.

Anyone else notice that hulu was launched right after the media companies broke the backs of the guild union? That the corporations said they shouldn't have to pay the writers for playing shows online because there was no market model for how anyone could possibly stream media online and it be profitable. Yea, I remember that.

Sarah Palin should have her own variety show. At least it will attract more viewers than Rosie's Thanksgiving Eve special on NBC.

Air it on FOX, but Murdoch has gone anal commie lately.

Or they could just broadcast natural disasters. They would get the same viewers and I am sure they already have the archived footage.
