Sadly, Season 1 isn't available on Hulu yet, but I'll still provide a link

DZ, you have very good taste. Afternoon Delight
is one of the best. I'd still recommend starting from the beginning though. I think a hundred years from now AD will represent the Bush years better than anything. Just think of all the themes: the real estate bubble, Iraq, plutocracy, idiot sons of successful fathers, and, um, incest. Lots of incest.
You can't blame FOX for canceling it though, it was a dead-last money-loser from the start. They were generous to keep on as long as they did.
