Works for Me Wednesday - HULU (and I don't mean hooping)

No this is not a novel method of exercising for adults...though I have tried out a hulu-hoop recently and found that I can still do it!

Mayhap you all know about HULU by now - just b/c I just found out about it doesn't mean everyone else is also behind the times...but in case you haven't...

HULU is "Hulu is a website that offers commercial-supported streaming video of TV shows and movies ..."

I'm not interested in the new t.v. shows out there b/c really there isn't much that is worth watching - but they also have old t.v.s shows - programs I remember from my youth...Airwolf, Knight Rider, The Three Stooges, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and many, many more.

I have to admit I've enjoyed watching some of the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents 1/2 hour shows...they are not very scary but do end with a twist.

The commercials shown are super short and only one at a time. On a 1/2 hour show you might get 3 - 15 second commercials. One word of warning - the commercials might not all be "child-appropriate" as in regular t.v. - so you might want to be monitoring what they are watching.

And I'm not advocating you all spend more time watching "tv" or your computer monitor as it were - but you might enjoy seeing some of your old tv shows from yesteryear. One thing I have found out when I've watched some of my old tv programs is that they are TOTALLY LAME! The acting, the special effects, the story lines - you name it...but I enjoy the nostalgia aspect of it all.

I watch "older" shows than the ones you mentioned and you are right , they are lame! "Older" movies, however, have some very good acting and the scenery makes you want to be there!
