For those unaware, Clicker is an online video site that acts as a guide to other online video sites serving up television episodes and movies. It crawls Hulu along with cable and network television sites, and keeps track of what episodes of what shows are available for instant viewing.

Until now, Clicker was like the phone book – you could look up what you wanted in it, but it was big and intimidating, and you had to know what you were looking for to find it. They just launched a redesign which makes the site much more like Hulu, or a suggestion engine, in that the site now actively recommends content for you to watch.

I tried it out today and I have to say, I like it much better. I hadn’t even thought to watch the new episode of “The Office,” but Clicker was like, “you want to watch this?” and I was like, “yes, yes I do, Clicker.” And now as I write this article, I’m watching the episode of The Office where Pam gives birth to her baby. What a wonderful world this is.

I've written for National Lampoon & Cracked Magazine, been featured on NPR's "Marketplace", and had a pilot screen at the New York Television Festival. I've performed stand-up all over NY, Boston & LA. I love Babylon 5, yelling at the TV with my dad and naps.
