    So I felt like I was missing out on cable and TV, so I picked up Hulu Plus for a few months to 'catch up' with mainstream shows... turns out that the shows are rubbish, and paying for the right to watch commercials is one of the dumbest 'features' ever to hit the internet. I thought that I would enjoy Hulu enough to get a real cable service... but it isn't even worth the $8/mo for Hulu... how on earth do people justify their cable bills?
