UPDATE 9/28/10 – Roku and Hulu announced today that the premium Hulu Plus service will become available on the Roku line-up of boxes sometime this fall. That will certainly make the Roku XD reviewed below an even better bargain, although we’re not sure that Hulu Plus as its currently configured makes much sense.  It’s nice to have a full catalog of programs available, but studies have shown that the $9.99/month pay service currently available to PS3 owners features only a few programs not available on the free service.

Review: The Big Bang Theory – Season 1

If were a sitcom, it would be The Big Bang Theory, the endearing comedy about hopelessly nerdy physicists who pretty much like everything that we like.

Johnny Galecki’s Leonard is the emotional center of the show. When Penny (Kaley Cuoco), an attractive young woman, moves into the apartment across the hall, Leonard is instantly smitten. His pursuit of the girl of his dreams forms the spine of the first season.
