Binary System Podcast #79 – WTNV Episode 106 “Filings”

In Night Vale it’s illegal to acknowledge the existence of angels, so they’re out to change that, and you know what that means: PAPERWORK. Also minor riots, dragons, and rifts in the space-time continuum. It IS Night Vale we’re talking about.

After the twins recap the episode they also get into Mystery Science Theater 3000: the Return (and how delightfully creepy Felicia Day can be), the new Beauty and the Beast movie (and how it’s okay if you make a movie that’s only for Disney Fans because that’s a hell of an army to contend with), the new Iron Fist (about which we’ll say very little) and the Hugo Award nominations (about some of which we’ll say nothing at all…)

Binary System Podcast #42 – The answer to…wait, what was the question?

No recap this week because…well, because excuses, but Night Vale is on hiatus and Time Warner’s dropping half of North Carolina into an internet black hole and California is still (last time we checked) three hours behind the East Coast, so scheduling and technical difficulties and are you still reading this? We love you. Have 15 minutes of random ramblings.

Hulu on the iDevices? Suck it Cable Companies!

Hulu on the iDevices?  Suck it Cable Companies!

After rumors a few months ago about a preuium Hulu service,  all was quiet for a while.  Today Hulu announced their new service dubbed Hulu Plus.  For the small price of $9.99 you can watch :

. . . all nine seasons of The X-Files. All three seasons of Arrested Development. Ten seasons of Law and Order: SVU. All five seasons of Ally McBeal. Seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and three seasons of Roswell. Every episode ever of Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. Classic skits from the first five and most recent five seasons of Saturday Night Live. The list goes on. This is all on top of hundreds of shows already on Hulu.com today. It’s a treasure chest in the cloud for TV lovers.

I also discovered that they have a few episodes of my favorite late night TV show, MST3K.   Now one major thing that sets Hulu Plus away from Netflix is that the premium Hulu service will STILL have ads with the video, so your subscription doesn’t get you anything more than mobile access.

Hulu Plus will be fully available for all iDevices, PCs, Some Samsung Blu-Ray players and eventually the PS3 and the 360.  You can request an invite for Hulu Plus here.
