Last night whilst combing through the ever expanding netflix queue, I decided to give a new show a shot. That show? Eureka, a syfy (still hate that name) series that is full of people I know from movies and other series (hello Miles Dyson) and is honestly one of the most endearing shows I’ve seen in a while. Usually a show needs a few episodes to get off its feet, two of my favorite current shows, 30 Rock and Community, both had this starting hiccup where it seems the writers don’t have the characters fully realized yet and it seems as if this world just didn’t exist before you got there, then they either stumble or hit a stride. Both of the previously mentioned shows vie for my favorite show on television titles and are highly recommended.
After multiple rounds of sales and many people interested (including Google, Microsoft and more), Hulu announced on their blog yesterday that they are canceling the sale entirely. They did not find an offer that they felt suited their earning potential, so they are pulling the plug. To be honest I’m not sure how I feel about this, I really was hoping that Hulu could find a strong partner to help them strong arm some more cable content onto their service (especially next day FOX AND COMEDY CENTRAL). Follow the link to see what Hulu says in their blog about the situation, but at this time they are forging ahead on their own.
