Hu-Listic: Keeping Current

September 23rd, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

Each week, Hulu’s Video Editor, Jocelyn Matsuo brings to light hidden gems from the Hulu library.

Current TV (headed by Al Gore) got a lot of press lately when Euna Lee and Laura Ling were detained and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor in North Korea while reporting for Vanguard, a high quality news documentary program. They cover some things that would make your local TV reporter shake and recoil from fear (both for their safety and at the cost of producing these features). From Gitmo and guns to pirates, these reporters have balls (figuratively, anyway).

I recently realized how varied our offering from Current TV actually is — and it’s not limited to genre. SuperNews! is another ringer. This animated sketch comedy show takes on the best (and worst) of politics, pop culture and technology with bits like “Your Dad Asks Computer Questions.”
