Hulu.com is really pushing hard to be THE destination site for free, quality, syndicated internet television. And I have to say, they’re not doing a bad job so far. At this point, they’ve easily passed the point where they have more cool sci-fi stuff that I want to watch than I actually have time to. They need to improve their category cross-tagging, though — a few things that really should be under Sci Fi/Fantasy are lost in Drama or Action/Adventure instead. So keep that in mind.
Anyway, here are a few of the geek-worthy pleasures you’ll find there this week …
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
That’s right, it’s back … and it’s free again. I’m not sure why this decision was made — maybe the iTunes sales finally dropped off — but I won’t complain. If you haven’t seen this already, now’s your chance! Then come back here and gush about it.
Burn Notice, Seasons 1 & 2
A few weeks ago, I posted a review of this series, which just came back for its second season. At the time, USA Network had recently pulled the Season 1 episodes from Hulu. But now they seem to back again. So support Bruce Campbell and give it a try, if you haven’t already!
This series starring Kevin McKidd only lasted 13 episodes before NBC gave it the axe. Which was a shame. It’s a great show about a man who finds himself unstuck in time. Kevin Falls (the creator) was able to give it a decent “ending” before the show sailed off into the sunset, but I really would have loved to see where he planned to go with this in the long run. To read my recaps/reviews/impressions of each and every episode, you can visit Too Much Free Time.
Looked great and I was ready to try but they don’t offer streaming in Canada yet! Something about clearing the rights and stuff. Sheesh!
Yeah, I’ve heard that before. Although I thought I also heard they’d opened up the international rights for Dr. Horrible? Because as a web production, that’s not bound by the same restrictions as the from-TV material.
