Ok, so it looks pretty. I’ll admit that. For those of you not in the know hulu is a video site put together by NBC and Newscorp in an attempt to monetize the online market and curb illegal downloading etc. Does it still suck, well kinda. Other than having rather limited content, my biggest problem with the site is the ad placement. It’s horrible. It reminds me of movie broadcasts on Sunday mornings sponsored by vinyl siding installers. Rough cuts in the middle of a scene with no regards to how intrusive it is to break the action like that. Below is the movie the Girl Next Door. It’s a fun little flick but it’s also a great example of what I’m talking about. Watch it and see how they chop it up. So if you want to catch an old episode of family guy or one of the 7 movies they have, sure it’s great . Other than that I think it sucks. Oh and you can’t watch it outside of the states.
