With the recent announcement that two of our favorite TV shows - Firefly and Babylon 5 - have been added to the upcoming launch of new online VOD channel TheWB.com, we're wondering whether we're nearing the day that we're never going to have to get out of our comfortable chair and put down the laptop ever again.While streaming TV online isn't exactly a new idea - we've been using Hulu.com as our procrastination tool of choice ever since they added Galactica 1980 to their line-up - what differentiates TheWB.com isn't just their io9-friendly selection of shows (As well as the two listed above, you'll also be able to find episodes of Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Roswell, Smallville and non-geek-but-awesome-nonetheless shows like Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls and The OC, amongst others) but the fact that the channel will also be offering brand new series from creators like Terminator: Salvation's McG and Chuck's Josh Schwartz alongside their more familiar offerings. Sure, the announced new shows don't sound that promising so far (Although we're looking forward to Chadam), but if the first batch do well, then we're hoping to see some more SF in future seasons. Until then, we'll be keeping ourselves occupied by looking for signs of Ron Moore's Battlestar Galactica greatness in his Roswell episodes. TheWB.com adds six to online offerings [Hollywood Reporter]
