Huluplus--what's good?

i don't know what i did before dc, how i got along.:) it seems i'm constantly bringing questions, seeking help from my dc family.

one of my favorite christmas gifts this year is a subscription to huluplus. i know i'm going to enjoy the heck out of it, but right now i don't know where to begin. there are so many shows, movies, cooking vids, youtube, documentaries--all this stuff--too much STUFF--to wade/browse through.

what i would love to get from you folks, are a few of your favorite things to view on huluplus. a couple of ideas from each of you would be a big help in getting me started. thank you in advance....

We watch all kinds of shows on Hulu Plus. There are a couple shows we like on Syfy (Warehouse 13 and Alphas), but since we don't get that channel we watch them on Hulu Plus. We watch a lot of old shows, and if we miss episodes of certain shows (like Once Upon a Time) we watch them there. Between Hulu Plus and Netflix streaming, we don't even miss cable or satellite (much).

thanks, barbara! i will be taking a look at the shows you mention. i've been meaning to tune in to once upon a time, but haven't yet found where it is on. i hope huluplus takes me way away from the tv. last year, when we switched over to the digital system, my tv didn't work for some four months. i didn't miss it a bit after the first few days. well, except for the summer olympics. that's when i finally caved. after all, i couldn't NOT see the olympics, could i....

You're welcome! Once Upon a Time is on ABC Sunday nights at 8:00EST/7:00Central. I think you can catch up on all the shows (at least for this season) at abc.com if they don't have them all at hulu. We bought the first season on DVD and will buy this season when it is available, as we love it so much. We are also buying the other two shows I mentioned, as they become available. Have fun exploring hulu!

Mostly tv shows and Korean soap operas.

It's not very good for movies.

For movies we stick to Netflix for the most part. But there are so many other options on hulu that it is definitely worth it to us.

I'm not a huge TV watcher, but my wife and daughter enjoy a number of television programs on Hulu+. I've also used it to catch up on episodes of series that I've missed.

Like others have said, Hulu+ is not great for movies. I use Amazon for movie watching.
