The Best TV Shows on Hulu

Haven’t had enough of the Elizabeth Holmes-Theranos scandal yet? The three-episode Hulu Original miniseries, The Dropout, arrives this week, starring Amanda Seyfried as the now-convicted tech CEO. Here’s a look at that and the other new TV shows coming to Hulu this week, plus a guide to 39 more great shows to watch on the streaming service.

What’s new this week (Feb. 28-March 7)


Better Things: Season 5 premiere — A single mom (Pamela Adlon) struggles to raise three girls while trying to maintain her career as an actor.

Rich Man, Poor Woman: Complete season 1 — This 2018 South Korean rom-com is a remake of the 2012 Japanese television series Rich Man, Poor Woman. In it, a man (Suho) who can’t distinguish faces meets a woman (Ha Yeon Soo) who is unforgettable.


The Dropout:  Amanda Seyfried plays Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes, who dropped out of Stanford to pursue her dream of a medical device that only required a drop of blood to perform numerous tests. The only problem? It didn’t work. William H. Macy, Laurie Metcalf, Stephen Fry and Kurtwood Smith also star.


Dicktown: Season 2 premiere — Animated series set in Richardsville, NC (“Dicktown” to the locals), which is home to famous boy detective John Hunchman and his hired muscle, David Purefoy.

Best Hulu original TV series


Reservation Dogs (2021—)


Reservation Dogs comes from the mind of Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), so you know it’s good. The comedy follows Elora, Bear, Cheese and Willie, a small gang of teenagers living in rural Oklahoma. With a strong focus on character development, the comedy might surprise you with touching moments, amid the constant stream of dry wit. Slamming down some mostly accurate Indigenous representation, especially when it comes to dialogue filled with local slang, Reservation Dogs is essential viewing. Don’t miss it.

Staged (2020-2021)


Not only is Staged one of the best shows to be set during lockdown, it incredibly manages to make Zoom calls entertaining. David Tennant and Michael Sheen star as fictionalized versions of themselves, attempting to virtually rehearse a play without letting their own petulant childish egos get in the way. The supporting cast, featuring real-life partners and family members, provide the required sarcasm and maturity. Plus the cameos, from Judi Dench to Cate Blanchett, are Ricky Gervais Extras-type fun.

Brassic (2019—)


If Ocean’s Eleven-type schemes in a northern English town sound like an inspired combination to you, then try Brassic. Vinnie and his five mates commit various imaginative crimes in lieu of real jobs, but as time inevitably wears a few of them down, they start to turn their heads to life away from the town. It can be zany and crude, but also delicately sweet in an authentic way.

Letterkenny (2016—)


This comedy set in a small Ontario community is mad in the best way possible. Ice hockey players, “hicks,” out-of-towners, drug addicts and the “natives” all form the cast of delightfully strange and refreshing characters. They often speak in a thick Ontario dialect as they come up with a surprising stream of wordplay, puns and discussion of big issues.




Into the Dark (2018—)


A Blumhouse horror anthology with each episode starring different actors, including Jimmi Simpson, Dermot Mulroney and Felicia Day. The movie-length episodes are inspired by a holiday theme connected to the month of their release. What better way to kick things off than on Halloween, when a professional hitman thinks he can get away with transporting his victim in plain sight, but the costume-wearers around him don’t guarantee things will go to plan. A sense of wit runs through the spooky tales, some of which hit better than others. Episodes 4 and 10 from season 1 are particular standouts.


Mr Inbetween (2018—)


This black comedy crime drama out of Australia follows a hitman for hire, who has it all, finding a balance with work, friends and family. Never mind the violent kills on the side. Starring a mesmerizing Scott Ryan, Mr Inbetween manages its own balancing act, blending darkness, deadpan humor and tightly strung tension. Fans of Fargo or Barry should be on board.


Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. (2021—)


This stop-motion series is a refreshing side-step for Marvel. Bloody, sweary and dropping jokes-a-second, the show centers on supervillain M.O.D.O.K. — Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing — and his crumbling life after failing to conquer the world. With a reliably excellent voice performance from Patton Oswalt, M.O.D.O.K. is a satirical, zany, easily digestible binge.


A Teacher (2020)


This miniseries starring Kate Mara and Nick Robinson (Love, Simon) traverses the tricky territory of a forbidden affair between a Texas high school teacher and her 18-year-old student. Treated realistically, the romance brings consequences for the lovers, with sharp moments holding on its psychological impact. A quiet yet captivating cautionary tale.

Unreal (2015-2018)


Unreal’s four seasons are all up on Hulu for you to devour. The satirical series centers on the behind-the-scenes of a Bachelor-type dating show and the questionable integrity of its producers. Clinging to her moral compass is Rachel Goldberg, whose particular talent lies in manipulating addictive reality TV drama. But things get complicated when she develops feelings for the show’s playboy suitor. Smart, biting and occasionally grim, Unreal is a sharp assessment of people and popular TV.



Based on a Margaret Atwood novel, Hulu’s dystopian tragedy series depicts a totalitarian US where women are trapped in child-bearing slavery. While that might sound like tough viewing, especially when the “Handmaids” are raped by their Commanders, you still have hope a resistance will see them find safety in Canada. The production values are immense, making the tension and suspense all that more palpable. A mesmerizing and subtly fierce lead performance from Elisabeth Moss adds another vivid layer. See how it all ends in the currently streaming season 4.
