Hulu TV Shows

We’ve all probably had the experience of scrolling through hundreds of cable channels and not finding anything good to watch. But Hulu is hoping to destroy that experience by adding thousands of episodes of classic and more recent television shows to its lineup that will (hopefully) help you narrow down your choices quicker and easier. Read on for a list of these Hulu TV shows, including M*A*S*H, NYPD Blue, and many more.

Castle Rock Bill Skarsgard

Hulu’s upcoming TV show Castle Rock, a psychological horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, has been slowly filling its lead roles as the show heads toward production. They’ve managed to snag some pretty awesome cast members so far – any show that prominently features Melanie Lynskey, Andre Holland, and Jane Levy is worth getting excited about – but now Carrie star Sissy Spacek won’t be the only actor who’s actually appeared in a movie based on a King novel: Bill Skarsgård, who is playing the terrifying-looking Pennywise the Clown in the upcoming adaptation of It, will be heading to Castle Rock as well. But who will he play?

The Handmaid's Tale Spoiler Review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: the first season of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale.)

There’s no denying that The Handmaid’s Tale is powerful. Its story of a distinctly American dystopia in which women’s rights are oppressed and their bodily autonomy is stolen by a totalitarian government is gripping and timely, with more real-world implications by the minute. But it is a TV show, and “powerful” can only take a series so far.

The Hulu show inevitably had to make some deviations from the Margaret Atwood novel upon which its based, transforming The Handmaid’s Tale from a dismal cautionary tale into a more conventional, hopeful sci-fi thriller. And while this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it presents a whole new host of problems for the show to deal with in its confirmed second season.

Spoilers ahead for the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale.

andre holland castle rock

2017 was already a big year for Stephen King adaptations before Hulu announced their new show Castle Rock, a series set within the popular author’s larger universe. While not based on any specific novel or story, it will actually acknowledge the myriad of connections throughout King’s work, making it catnip for fans. That it will also star Moonlight‘s André Holland is icing on an already intriguing cake.

TV in Trump's America

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, and opinionated about something that makes us very happy…or fills us with indescribable rage. In this edition: the rise of political television in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency.)

It started with Nazi symbols strewn across public transportation and billboards across D.C. and New York. No, it wasn’t the alarming rise of anti-Semitic vandalism that had skyrocketed in the first three months of the Trump administration. It was advertising The Man in the High Castle, the dystopian Amazon series based off the 1962 Philip K. Dick novel set in an alternate 1960s where the Axis powers won World War II.

And it was just the beginning in a recent surge in “newly relevant” and timely TV shows that took on new meaning after the election of Donald Trump to the White House. The Man in the High Castle kicked off a spate of fictional TV shows such as The Handmaid’s Tale and American Gods, whose stories were conceived long before the White House was even a glimmer in Trump’s eye. But these science-fiction and fantasy stories, at first cautionary or highly theoretical tales, now take on an eerie prescience as fiction and reality collide on the small screen.
