  • Another tempting reason for me to sign up for Hulu Plus. Rumor has it ‘Weekend’ is going to get the Criterion treatment later this year.

      Here’s another reason: Netflix will stop carrying Criterion movies and Hulu will satrt doing that. Least that’s what I heard.

      • I heard that’s for select titles. Some will stay on Netflix, others will only be on Hulu.

      • Oh, Criterion’s definitely been making its Netflexodus over the past couple of months, very much to the benefit of Hulu Plus.

        And I hate sounding like a consumer guide, but I personally get a great deal of value out of Hulu Plus.

        Wow, I haven’t been amused by a word since “Vagenda”

    Don’t you just love how lazy the Documentary branch seems to be getting lately with all their documentaries?
