Hulu Plus on PS3

We don't have cable and live in a rural area now.  To both Ashley and myself, cable is an unneeded expense and is more background noise than anything else, so we opted not to get it at the new house. The only person who watched cable was Andrew.  We've been using Netflix on the PS3 and love it so when the PS3 got Hulu Plus yesterday, I decided to sign up for a month.  I'm digging it (simply because I watch quite a few shows on TV).  I gave Detroit 187 a chance and just couldn't get into it.  I've now watched the first two episodes of No Ordinary Family and I'm digging it.  Here's a few pros and cons of the service I've found so far

Slick interface
Video quality seems better than Netflix
Lots of Current Shows

Still has ads.  I figured for $10 a month, they'd drop the ads
Not as much selection as Hulu Online.  I was looking forward to watching Sons of Anarchy and 24, but I can't seem to find them
Too much "online only" content.  I'd love to watch some of the stuff that I can watch online on my tv.

At this point, the jury is still out.  Hulu has 29 more days to impress me and I don't impress easily.
