You guys know by now that when I write, I am all over the place. That is because I have a million things on my mind all of the time and I want to say or do all of them at once. I was looking through Hulu tonight on our Wii because we divorced cable a couple of months ago. Hulu has improved so much!! They had Green Acres, I Love Lucy, A Different World, The Brady Bunch and then I found all of the Real Housewives shows. That is my real guilty pleasure when I don’t want to think of anything:).
I started Green Acres from episode 1 because growing up in the 70’s and 80’s and watching the reruns, it is not like I could watch them in order. Hulu used to suck big time! They used to have oodles of obscure Asian titles, not there is anything wrong with that, but I am not Asian so they were not titles I was interested or familiar with. And no, I don’t have a problem with Asian shows or people. Had to say it because some people read more into things than necessary. Anyway…they have shows with the complete series available. They still have some shows where they have 8 episodes that are the more current ones, but now I can watch so many shows that I got to watch as a kid. And, in a few days they will have all of the Seinfeld episodes in the way that Netflix closed the deal with the Friends Franchise.
So, in addition to reading the Bible more and the entire stack of books beside my bed, I think I will be delving into Hulu this summer if it can keep a connection! My list to watch from beginning: Green Acres, The Brady Bunch, West Wing, Seinfeld (even though I have most of them and have seen them all), House of Cards, Parenthood and the Blacklist. I have seen a lot of House of Cards and the Blacklist and some of Parenthood on Netflix, which I have always used more than Hulu. But Netflix better up their game because there is competition. Amazon Instant Video is improving too. It sucks for Netflix that they came up with whole idea and other companies are pulling the rug out from under them so to speak.
Okay, this is my PSA tonight. Get rid of cable. There are too many good things to watch on these streaming services and saving money is one side effect and the most important one is sharing fond memories of days past with those you love…
