Right now I can barely hear the fan but when I'm watching episodes on nbc.com and sites like these why does my fan suddenly become so loud?

Because, when doing CPU and GPU intensive activities (like watching streaming videos online) the computer can get very hot, very quickly. When your computers temperature reaches a certain lever, you fans start to ramp up and get louder...
