Amazon offers up single servings of "The Dukes"

It certainly is a fab new world we live in, when more and more great television is becoming available online. The networks have jumped in with videos of full episodes of their shows, and you've got great sites like MSN, Hulu and Fancast. Now the ever-diversifying Amazon has jumped into the action, offering full TV episodes for download (some to purchase, some for free) of both the brand-new shows and the great classic stuff.

And when we think of the great classic stuff, what can we think of but "The Dukes of Hazzard." Amazon has that, the first two seasons worth, though "Dallas" and "Dynasty" aren't there (yet?). You will also find "Batman: The Animated Series" and "Batman Beyond." And "Santa Barbara"? Could we ever hope? Things are evolving, ya know, so ya never know ...

This is mighty convenient, BRBTV has to say, if you just want to view a particular episode or two of a show and don't want to buy the whole DVD set of a season. The other free sites are great, but they don't cover every episode of the show, for logistics' sake, of course.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: Speaking of the Batman shows, your opportunity to immerse yourself in the earlier stuff arrives this Saturday with Boomerang's special all-day event featuring the "Super Friends" shows. Comics2Film has more.
