I can't decide if Google is now more like Cyberdyne or Omni Consumer Products.
Cyberdyne.

I agree. Donations too!

A direct link to an mp4? Man, they really went all out this time.
Actually, I like to download and play locally. I don't really like streaming due to Internet speeds, hiccups, etc.

I remember there being a fair amount of hype behind Vanguard. I never tried it, but from what I read it seemed pretty average at best.
I played its beta. It was OK.

Yeah, I know they do have past season episodes but I don't like to wait because I have coworkers who discuss the episodes the day after they air and I don't like to feel left out.

So they will start airing new episodes? That'd be good.
Does Netflix even carry any recently aired episodes for any TV shows?

Not really Ant, to get a solid TV show schedule HULU is the only really good option out there.

Hulu has a couple gotchas tho, nothing deal-breaking but also not entirely obvious at first:

1. Hulu has commercials. They are not long (an hour-long normal broadcast is about 45 minutes on hulu). Also a timer pops up when they come up so you know how long you have.

2. Once newly aired shows 'expire' (varys, seems about a month or so) you will no longer be able to access them via a device like Roku, but can still watch them on your PC. I get around that with my laptop hooked up HDMI to my TV, but if you 'keep up' within a few weeks of airing, you won't need to do that.

Thanks Axis. Commercials are annoying and can't be skipped on Hulu though. I guess one has to do it illegally unless one wants to pay for them like on Amazon and iTunes if they are available.

The only cable show I really like which isn't available on other services is The Walking Dead but I could just pirate that once I drop cable.

Netflix has Walking Dead.
