Just remember, it's hulu, not hula

By ED BARK
Have you hulu'd yet? You should.

Launched on March 12, 2008 by NBC Universal and News Corporation (parent company of Fox), hulu.com has grown to a mega-treasure trove for TV junkies of all shapes, sizes and guilty pleasures.

Its vast free-of-charge TV landscape -- a few feature films are offered, too -- accommodates both full episodes and clips of shows ranging from all-time classics (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) to quickly canceled little gems (The Tick) to irresistible, brain-decaying junk (Tequila & Bonetti).

You can watch every episode from the first three seasons of MTM, beginning with the "Love is All Around" pilot and ending with No. 72, "Mary Richards and the Incredible Plant Lady." Commercials occasionally intrude, but none are more than 30 seconds. And the episodes are all crystal clear and in wide-screen.

Hulu also offers the 1983 documentary Amos 'n' Andy: Anatomy of a Controversy among its hundreds of titles. All 20 episodes of CBS' Square Pegs likewise are in the hulu house. The 1982 CBS sitcom co-starred Sarah Jessica Parker as a dorky denizen of Weemawee High School.

Joss Whedon's Web-centric Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, starring Neil Patrick Harris, is on the hulu menu, too. Or maybe you'd like to catch up with or start watching Fox's Fringe. Ten full episodes are available.

We'll close with a timely hulu.com clip from The Daily Show. Now go see for yourself.
