    I watched Tera Nova this week on Hulu. Great show. I didn’t know I wasn’t logged in for the second episode so when it cut me off I was like “Wtf, I have to wait??” and then finished reading and said for Hulu Plus members we get it right away. Definitely glad I’m a Plus user. Great value, as we don’t have cable or a tivo or any of that garbage.
