It’s hard to believe there was a time when there wasn’t a Wu-Tang Clan. The legendary, influential hip-hop group has had an impact on culture and society that will stretch on into the future. But they had to start somewhere – and that’s where Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga comes in. The new series tracks the Wu-Tang origin story, starting with their very early days. Watch the Wu-Tang: An American Saga trailer below.

During his opening remarks to the Television Critics Association, Hulu’s SVP of Originals Craig Erwich dropped a pretty significant piece of information in a passing comment about subscribers. He attributed Hulu’s growth in subscribers to the quality of Hulu’s offerings, including add-ons like Live TV and premium services that include HBO andCBS All Access. And soon, Disney+.
This was previously announced on Disney Investor Day, but it feels like something that should be a bigger talking point. Erwich didn’t take questions to follow up about it, but here’s what we do know, along with the questions we still have.

It’s kind of fitting that the fourth season of Veronica Mars got a surprise week-early release by Hulu. The season was set to arrive, with all eight episodes at once, on Friday, July 26. But during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed by the streaming service that Veronica Mars would return…that day. Like, immediately that day. So diehard fans of the dogged private detective, first introduced as a high school student and now a full-on adult, could catch her latest adventure early.
As has become the case for a lot of streaming shows, it was best for fans to watch the show quickly because the season was full of surprises. To discuss any of them – and why they worked or failed – means we’re diving into spoilers. Right now. So skip this article unless you’ve seen all eight episodes (or if you don’t care about being spoiled).
Seriously. Major spoilers begin immediately.

The Handmaid’s Tale has been teasing revolution. Ever since June had her epiphany that she can save other Gilead children even if she can’t save her own daughters, the narrative has been injected with a dose of intrigue, though not much else happens in “Witness” other than one disconcerting scene of sexual violation (we’ll get to that).

Few writers could turn a phrase quite like the late, great Douglas Adams, whose The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series remains a high watermark for literary comedy and science fiction. Now, we’re greeted with the news that his beloved books are being adapted into a television series on Hulu and I’m reminded of one of his best quotes: “Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”
Substitute “space” for “online streaming” and it still works. Eventually, there will be enough streaming platforms to accommodate series adaptations of every single thing you have ever loved.

Buckle up, Marshmallows. The new season of Veronica Mars is here, and if the first episode is any indication, it’s going to be a satisfying return to the town of Neptune, CA.
This morning, fans of the show congregated in San Diego Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 to catch the first episode of the show’s fourth season, as well as to spend time with cast members Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars), Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls), Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas), Francis Capra (Eli ‘Weevil’ Navarro), Percy Daggs III (Wallace Fennel), and Kirby Howell-Baptiste, a newbie to the Neptune world who plays a take-no-shit bar owner.

After The Handmaid’s Tale‘s arguably most scattered and exasperating episode in last week’s “Unfit,” “Heroic” is straightforward with tracing its narrative goals while also testing its audience’s patience. “Heroic” opens on boredom and the tune of “Heaven is a Place on Earth.” After the shopping incident, June (Elisabeth Moss) is forced to keep vigil for a comatose Ofmatthew/Natalie (Ashleigh LaThrop) for weeks, maybe a few months on end – “until there’s a baby,” according to Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd).
Lydia has essentially condemned June to a dull clinical whitescaped purgatory to cleanse June of her sin. Time lapses reveal more bodies coming and going to occupy the white space around the stiffly poised June and Natalie’s body, whether it’s the Wives praying over Natalie’s womb or the Handmaids forced to pray for the baby inside it. As Gilead souls pass in or out of the hospital room, June’s mental state deteriorates under the stagnancy of events and the coma patient’s repetitious heart monitor. Read More »
