It would be a little annoying having to go back to my netbook to watch tv shows online after spending hundreds of dollars on an ipad....
There are some browsers for iPad that do support flash or render it on their pc and give you access via their browser. ISwifter is my favourite it gives access to most of the US network sites without VPN so you can keep up with the shows you like. It lets you use sites like sidereel too but with a more annoyance because of the windows and ads they tend to open up.
As others say then there is OPlayer and you can use a free service like playmo that gives you access to US netflicks and Hulu if you pay for accounts with those.
Since I've discovered all these things and the tv apps available via the AppStore I never miss flash and I usually can find what I want to watch somewhere free. And I like my tv shows so I'm not talking about this being a rare occurrence!
Also flash is now dead as far as adobe is concerned ,more and more sites will be appearing that are iOS compatible, I wouldn't let the flash issue put me off buying an iPad.
