I discovered YouTube by looking up Hugh Laurie and Alan Davies last weekend.
If you like "House", you'll love Hugh Laurie singing his silly hit: "Mystery" at
and then, I looked for dishy Alan Davies (anyone remember Jonathan Creek?) Imagine my delight to discover the BBC's "QI" (for "quite interesting") with several British comedians on the panel; including Alan Davies. Kind of a Monty Python quiz show but much faster, wittier and now-ier. Hosted by Stephen Fry.
A waste of time really, learning how long a woodpecker's tongue is, but better than television.
I now see why Google snapped up YouTube. No commercials and you can pick what you watch.
Sounds very promising.
