Netflix and Amazon are getting heaps of love for their original programming – winning awards for shows such as The Crown and Goliath (a personal fav around, here obvious reasons) – and racking up millions of paid subscribers who want to binge watch these original series. But let’s not forget about Hulu. While it may not yet be as established in the original programming department as Netflix and Amazon, Hulu is nevertheless producing some impressive content that’s worth watching. Check out this list of the 10 best original TV shows produced by Hulu. Chances are there’s a program in here you’d enjoy powering through some weekend.
10. Letterkenny (Honorable Mention)
Okay, we’re cheating right off the bat. Letterkenny is actually an original show produced by Canadian streaming service Crave TV. Technically, it’s not legally available in the U.S. yet (but you’re a resourceful person, so… yeah). The show is about a bunch of farmers, hockey players, and small town misfits in rural Canada, and it’s the next great cultural export from the Great White North – destined to be remembered with other classic Canadian TV shows such as The Beachcombers and Degrassi. While it may seem that this series is light on plot, it more than makes up for it with its pitch perfect dialogue and comic timing. The key to Letterkenny’s humor is in the dialogue. The way the characters on the show talk to one another and interact is downright hilarious. The rapid fire conversations between the hockey players, who often break the fourth wall and talk directly to the audience, is worth watching. But the whole show feels fresh and original, and is a small slice of everything Canadiana.
