Stargate(s) Available to Stream

It had passed my notice until just now, but thanks to the handiness of a Hulu queue, I just learned that Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: Universe and the original, Stargate: SG-1 are back streaming on Hulu.

Is this the end of an animated era, or is it a sign of a long trend coming across multiple genres of children's entertainment? Children's programming used to be a highly lucrative television market, but… » 11/06/14 11:01am 11/06/14 11:01am
