Do you Hulu?

The purveyor of all things relevant and cool, GQ pointed this one out a couple months ago: This site is fantastic - they are currently in a private beta, only in the US and you have to be "invited" to sign up, like Gmail in the "early days."

Put in your email, and they will let you know when you can get in (took about 1 week for me). You will have access to an impressive amount of online content including TV shows (NBC after they drop-kicked iTunes), movies, clips, etc. And, it's all free with a limited number of 30 second ads from a variety of sponsors.

Personally, I am afraid of DVR (being trapped in my basement, a slave to my own obsessive media consumption), and I refuse to be someone who plans their lives around TV shows, so a chance to get the media I want when and where I want it is pretty exciting. Plus, never being limited to Marriott's hotel cable again? Priceless.

Hulu kicks ass.

If nothing else, it could turn some folks on to "It's always Sunny in Philadelphia", which is basically Arrested Development without a single character possessing even one redeeming quality.
