Hulu – It’s Always Sunny in Philedelphia.

April 22nd, 2008 by


I thought I’d kill two birds with one massive digital stone in this post. As powerful as the Internet is, it’s also the number one way to waste hours of your life. Hulu is just that a wonderful distraction, but so much more. Released earlier this year the people over at Hulu have contracts with almost all of the major networks and deliver high quality streaming videos of not only current shows but a vaults-worth of past ones too.

I think that the best part of Hulu is that I am able to watch old shows that were cancelled like “The Invisible Man” or shows I missed while they were on-air like Fox’s “New Amsterdam”. The shows have little indicators that tell you when a commercial is going to air and a time marker that tells you how long it will be (usually 15 to 30 seconds). In my opinion, one of the smartest, funniest, and downright best shows ever written is “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” The show centers around a group of friends who run a hole-in-the-wall bar in a seedy part of Philadelphia. Written and starring  Rob McElhenny, Glenn Howerton, and Charlie Day the show tackles a variety of issues from racism and politics to underage drinking that are wielded together in a mass of twisted humor. The cast is like peanut butter and jelly or bread and butter, they just compliment each other. The addition of Danny DeVito in the second season just upped the hilarity factor. I put a clip up here which is actually another feature of Hulu for you to check out.
