With the lack of summer viewing options starting to get to me, I decided to sign up for Hulu Plus just to ensure I always have something to watch. While most people would probably just stick to Netflix, I really wanted to see what Hulu Plus was all about. The $7.99/mo isn’t all that overwhelming, so I decided to go for it.
Anyway, I’ve already got more than 300 movies and TV shows in my queue, and am currently working through Season 1 of L&O SVU. I know that I’m more than a decade late to the L&O party, but I always seemed to have other things to watch and kept putting this show off.
I’ve seen three episodes so far, and have mixed feelings about it. I figured the SVU version would have more emotional stories, but I haven’t really been overcome by tears when watching. Still, I like Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni well enough, and the fact that the show will start its 13th or 14th season this fall is encouraging.
The bottom line: Right now it’s just another procedural, albeit one with great potential.
