Hulu? Hulu!

I have a new current obsession: Hulu.com.

For the uninitiated, Hulu is a Web site that shows full-length TV shows and movies-- for free. The only catch is that you have to watch the occasional commercial. No biggie there.

The great thing is the selection. There are tons of current and "vintage" shows out there. For example, I'm going through the first season of Picket Fences, and I am having a blast. I didn't really appreciate the quality of the show like I do now.

In a world that has way too many reality shows and game shows, I really enjoy seeing some of these old favorites. It's nice to go back to a time when networks actually had scripted shows with originality and well-developed characters.
