I tried Hulu last night for the first time. The rest of the world isn’t missing anything – the UX needs some serious work.

For example, try navigating through SNL skits. There seems to be little rhyme or reason to why they’re presenting you the clips they suggest. Search is similarly unpleasant.

I’ve been an outspoken critic of iTunes UX, but Hulu makes iTunes look outstanding by comparison.
