Heh, I do now!! If I miss a show or want to go back and watch the classics, then I'll head over to Hulu to see it. And while it might now be the best site (video stutters and not 720p, WTF) I like it cause I don't have an HDTV right now, so I'll watch on CBS and FOX websites at times to get caught up (I currently work the evening/night shift) so this is convenience for me. Anyways, my 2 cents. - BLUEBOY
