After several months of beta testing, Hulu, NBC and Fox's answer to YouTube, went live today. The site, as you probably know, has authorized clips and many full episodes of several hundred TV shows, from the great ("The Office," "The Simpsons," "Battlestar Galactica," "Hill Street Blues") to the completely awful ("Tequila & Bonetti").
I played around with Hulu a lot during the beta run, and, if you can deal with all the ads (they've now started putting in banner ads during the shows, which is annoying), it's a tremendous time-waster. Whenever work was going bad, I'd pop on an "Arrested Development" episode, for instance, to cheer myself up.
One of the especially nice features of the site is the ability to embed only portions of a clip, so over at the NJ.com blog (to avoid complaints from people who can't access this site when it features embedded clips), I included one of the funniest "Arrested" scenes of all time, which is part of a longer (but equally funny) clip. Enjoy.
