Hulu: Worth watching?

If you do Hulu like I do Hulu, you'll have some fun. Right now the TV part of the site doesn't include all the major networks' fare, so don't go looking for, say, All in the Family or Lost. (Currently, Hulu offers only the inferior Archie Bunker's Place. The site does, however, aggregate links to other places where some non-Hulu shows might be available, such as, in the case of Lost, ABC.com.) But you can be your own mini-network programmer, and dip in and out of shows, watching only the parts you want. Here's how I spent a work week, throwing a Hulu hoop around TV history.

MONDAY
I start out seeking capital-Q Quality

THE TICK
Only the finest superhero live-action parody ever. Viva Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell) and Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey)!

ST. ELSEWHERE
The first season — an earnest Denzel Washington, Howie Mandel with hair and a Red Sox cap, David Morse looking about 12 years old.
