Reality Shows

Hulu has an abundance of reality shows to choose from if you are a fan. Currently, Hulu has the entire season of The Bachelorette up for watching. So feel free to unplug your brain and catch up. Ali Fedotowsky, The Bachelorette is whittling down her choices as the season approaches the middle of its life.  I think we all can admit, ABC is a mastermind at creating a roller coaster ride of drama throughout the season. It is easy to fall into obsession over these shows; most often characterized by a love hate relationship with the show itself. My favorite part of The Bachelorette is the Hulu tags. Here are the best:

  • fake fake fake
  • mistake
  • Ali is nutzo
  • drunk
  • desperate men
  • are you serious

Toy Story 3

Have you seen the previews or gone to the theaters to see Toy Story 3? Sometimes not having cable can leave you out of the loop when it comes to movie previews, but a few weeks ago I discovered that Hulu has movie previews. I stumbled into the Toy Story 3 preview...loved it....and ended up going to the premier in 3-D. I will admit that I like almost all movies; which officially makes me the worst movie critic ever. So it is not a surprise that I loved this movie, but what did you all think?

Top Dogs on Hulu

Hulu has so many TV show choices that it can be overwhelming at times. So drumroll.......The most popular show of all time on Hulu is "Family Guy - Extra-Large Medium" from season 8. This kind of surprised me, but Family Guy dominates the most popular list by holding down the first five most popular episodes of all time. Some of the other reoccurring shows that make the most popular list are both "The Office" and "Glee."

PlayOn & Pandora

Admittedly, as a big fan of Pandora, I always have it running on my laptop while I work. I am not super hip when it comes to the newest music. At this point in life, I just rely on Pandora to suggest music I might like. This past weekend was the first time I tried Pandora with PlayOn. I must admit it was quite impressive coming out of my surround sound.

If you don't know what Pandora is, let me begin be by saying you are late in the game. But better late than never. Pandora is based around customized radio stations. You can create different radio stations from a song or artist you like and Pandora will magically create a radio station with similar music. Oh and it is free for up to 40 hours a month.

Speak The Soccer Lingo

Since PlayOn's latest update has support for the FIFA World Cup 2010 you have no excuse not to watch a few games. GQ recently did an article on how to speak soccer. While I follow The World Cup each year, I frequently get lost in the lingo. In the article they give 12 terms commonly used during The World Cup and I only knew one. Pretty pathetic I know, but they are tricky. Want to know what a wanker in black is or a group of death? Check out their article to test your knowledge.
