Hulu is a great place to hang out and watch TV and Movies "for free." Of course, this does come with a couple of "gotchas." First, you have to sit through a commercial at the beginning (only 5 seconds, though) and sprinkled throughout - commercials just "pop up" during movies ant TV shows. The scariest commercial yet was for "Outback Steakhouse." You only get 10-15 seconds of commercials at a time. You can share, email, pop-out and watch High Res, and Full screen. You can even embed a video for your website by picking just the clip you want.

There are 60 movies on the site, including "40 y/o virgin," "Ice Age," "Thank you for not Smoking," "Lost in Translation," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," and many others. I'm sure they'll add tons more over time.

The biggest news of all - Hulu added John Colbert and The Daily Show a few weeks ago.

Major score! The Simpsons, Tiger Woods, Arrested Development, The Office, Family Guy, American Dad and Saturday Night Live are among the many fun full TV show and TV clips.

All in all, I'd rather watch Netflix movies and TV series without commercials, but this is great for spontaneous mood if Netflix doesn't have it - especially the Colbert & Daly shows.

Here's another review of Hulu.
