    You know all the times I’ve loaded this site, I never noticed Hulu was on there. I found it recently from a friends’ suggestion – it doesn’t have everything, but I enjoy searching out a few TV shows I enjoy but always miss, all on one page. It’s nice to not have to load Abc, FOX etc websites and click all the prompts there. Plus they had the season premiere of Chuck a week early!

    @Ryan – Yea they haven’t gotten any HD content in since we put them up a few weeks ago which is why I am thinking of taking them off.

    yeah it doesn’t really strike me as a site deserving of updates, from this site.
