Editors' Picks: Streaming on Huluby IMDb-Editors | last updated - 1 month ago
Parasite | Now Streaming on Hulu
A poor family on the lowest rungs of South Korea's societal ladder hatches a clever, collaborative plan to get on the payroll of a much wealthier family...but this isn't simply a story of the "haves" and "have nots." Things take a very unexpected turn in this genre-traversing film, which won director Bong Joon Ho four major awards at the 2020 Oscars, and you won't be able to look away from the moment you press play.
"Devs" | Now Streaming on Hulu
Alex Garland’s (Ex Machina, Annihilation, 28 Days Later...) first foray into TV has been a total mind trip. The thinky sci-fi mini-series premiered March 5, kicking off a twisty 8-episode tale about a computer engineer who believes the secretive development division in her company is behind the disappearance of her boyfriend. To dive in any deeper than a vague plot synopsis would venture into spoiler territory and this is a series that is best enjoyed knowing as little as possible going in. If you’re looking for a mini-series that may give you an existential crisis, add this one to your list.
"Little Fires Everywhere" | Watch Now on Hulu
We're looking forward to diving into a juicy adaptation of Celeste Ng's novel, and no amount of "the book was better" chatter is going to tamp down our enthusiasm. It's a story about two families colliding and touches on the politics of race, privilege, and parenthood, and we can't wait to see how the acting/producing team of Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington light up the screen together.
Three Identical Strangers | Now Streaming on Hulu
This documentary provides a 40-year history on a national story where three men, who had never met each other, find out they are identical triplets. This heartwarming story takes a twist for the sinister when the trio take a closer look on why they were separated. To my fellow true crime fans, enjoy this exposé.
Over the Garden Wall | Now Streaming on Hulu
We entice you to get into the Unknown. We were blown away by this animated adventure centered on a pair of half-brothers who find themselves adrift in time after getting lost in the woods together. Beautifully rendered and respectful of the notion that children can handle sorta scary situations, the mini-series won a pair of Emmys in 2015 and continued on in comic-book form for a couple years.
"Ramy" | Now Streaming on Hulu
Creator, comedian, and star Ramy Youssef tells the story of an Egyptian-American trying to navigate his life in New Jersey in this Golden Globe-winning drama series. We love how the show is able to explore race and identity in a refreshing format. Catch season one before season two releases later this year.
Booksmart | Now Streaming on Hulu
Overachieving high-school seniors Amy (Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein) set out in search of some overdue mischief on the eve of their graduation. Director Olivia Wilde weaves themes of self-discovery and growing up into an over-the-top party scene, brought to life with a refreshingly different cast of talented young actors.
"Britain's Best Home Cook" | Now Streaming on Hulu
Fans of baking queen Mary Berry who miss her loving but sometimes shady critiques should warm up their screens and settle in for two seasons of "Britain's Best Home Cook," which has served as Berry's primary gig since she ended her tenure on "The Great British Bake Off." Non-scary recipes and cooking tips abound, and the contestants foster a supportive environment that is only seen on UK reality-competition programs. Mostly we delight in host Claudia Winkleman's iconic fringe hairstyle and the way she runs a competitive kitchen.
"Runaways" | Now Streaming on Hulu
What would you do if you found out your parents were supervillains? That's the question that "Runaways" asks over the course of its first season. From there, the show's heroes have to live with the answers they choose. If you're looking for some fun superhero content in the Marvel universe, you should give this Hulu Original series a chance. It might dull the sting of delays for Black Widow and The New Mutants.
"Wu-Tang: An American Saga" | Now Streaming on Hulu
Created by Wu-Tang founder RZA, "Wu-Tang: An American Saga" tracks the very early years of the iconic rap group, with a stronger focus on the personal lives and family relationships of the eventual members than the fully formed collective. If you’re looking for a more traditional music biopic arc, with a lot of music montages and Wu-Tang kicking off their first tour, this is not that show. But if you want to see when RZA bought his first drum machine, Ghostface Killah was secretly dating RZA’s sister, or when Method Man worked at the Statue of Liberty, definitely check it out.
"Veronica Mars" | Now Streaming on Hulu
Hey marshmallows ("Veronica Mars" fans, for the uninitiated), now is the perfect time to head back to Neptune and revisit your favorite cases. The twice-revived series still holds up today. While there are no current plans for a new season, maybe if we get the series enough views, Hulu will follow-up on that shocking finale.
"Atlanta" | Watch Now on Hulu
The most recent episode of Donald Glover's "Atlanta" aired way back in May 2018, and somehow we're still contemplating whether or not it's the greatest show on television. If you haven't experienced "Atlanta," it's time to catch up. But if you're already a fan, try re-watching some of the show's greatest episodes, like the terrifyingly hilarious "Teddy Perkins" and the nostalgic and heartbreaking "FUBU."
