A note to the mods:
This thread pertains to both movies and TV series talk.
I couldn't decide which of those forums to post this in,so I chose to place it in The OT.
Please feel free to move it elsewhere. :)

From Variety:
Sony is making more of its films and TV shows available to view for free on Crackle.com.
The company's online movie and TV video website recently added Spider-Man 2 and other titles as it looks to lure viewers and advertisers.

Other movie titles available for free viewing include:
Stripes
Groundhog Day
A Few Good Men
1941
The Fan
LaBamba
Several installments of the Godzilla franchise

TV series include:
The Three Stooges
Rescue Me
Charlie's Angels
Angel Of Death

The site is ad-supported,so if you don't mind sitting through some ads from time to time,it's not too bad. :)
More info at the following links from Variety and the Crackle site.

Hmm...

How about in the IPTV and Internet Delivery forum? We have Netflix in there... so this seems like it might be a natural fit there?

So it CBS/Viacom's version of Hulu? No, not quite because I can't find such currently airing CBS shows as Two and a Half Men, Ghost Whisperer, and the CSI franchises don't show up in searches I do at Crackle. Not wise IMO since that's a major reason I use Hulu.

I don't see why they put the Three Stooges under "TV" since those are theatrical shorts.

Thanks for the link, I'll probaby watch a couple at work this morning!

True, but my introduction to them was via TV, courtesy of the good "Officer Joe" on WPIX.

I'm sure I first saw them on TV too, but when I was real young, I did see one of them in a theatre before some kid's movie. It was probably already 20 years old at that time.
