Is a new site the future of television?

(Continued from Page 1)

So far, the most popular episodes reflect the limited offerings and the geekiness/maleness of the early adopters: The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Girl Next Door. But when the voting and commenting crowds arrive, and more women show up, and more shows and movies get added, Hulu has the chance to be a fascinating microclimate. What's the all-time best episode of The Simpsons? What's the most exquisite moment in Bring It On? If I were to watch only one Facts of Life minisode, which should it be? No more will these questions trouble us in our sleep.
