Everyone wants Free Stuff, Freebies, or Free Products. It is just human nature. The internet may be all about e-commerce, but at its very core, the internet is driven by people’s search for free information or desire to get discounts. If you were anywhere near a television or radio a couple of weeks ago, you may have heard about “Groupon”.
It is amazing how something goes viral like that. Groupon has been around since late 2008, but became major news (i.e. a hot trend) recently for their pulled SuperBowl commercial. When you think about it, perhaps a pulled commercial garners more attention than an aired commercial.
The U.S. government is not just going to mass-market advertise how to get free money, but their are Federal Programs and State Programs out there to help you.
Need some Child Care Money? How about the free Job Training programs your state offers? Want info about Minority Business Development? Do you qualify for food stamps? Need better veteran’s assistance?
My buddy Chris Ferrer (100% positive ebay feedback rating) is offering the Government Grants Guide EBOOK On CD on ebay for only $0.99. It’s worth checking out.
It’s official: every episode of Babylon 5 Season 1 can be seen for free at hulu.com
This sci-fi series, created by comic book, sci-fi, and cartoon writer J. Michael Straczynski (Rising Stars, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Midnight Nation, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, etc.) is his realistic take on Star Trek, since he was never able to reboot Star Trek on his own.
Babylon 5 was critically acclaimed in sci-fi circles, with a cult following. Season 1 is known for setting up the next 4 years, and J.M. Straczynski treats viewers who are observant and intelligent. It truly is a different take on Star Trek and Deep Space 9, although there are not many brilliant episodes in Season 1. This series lays out the alien races, plots, and characters for the ongoing storyline. Unlike Star Trek, every episode was planned by the creator and the continuity is tight. Even the most subtle line had potential to be used in a later season.
Season 1 is regarded as the weakest season of B5, since there are times when the pace is too slow for modern viewers, some episodes are like bad Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 1 filler episodes, and there are some cast changes. And FYI, I believe episodes 1 and 2 are mislabeled on Hulu right now.
However, one Hulu poster said it best: “Season one serves mostly as an introduction of a four year story arc, it is in spots a bit slow or rough; but there are some truly remarkable moments that make the series eminently worth watching.”
We can hope Hulu would release Season 2 one day. One way to help is to watch Season 1, to make the show popular on hulu, and express its demand.
