A Hulu original series, this adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel is set in a dystopian sci-fi future. Elisabeth Moss plays a Handmaid - a woman forced to live as a concubine forced to bear children for the wealthy fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship. This series is a dramatic, powerful examination of gender, politics, and the future of the world.
FargoApril 15, 2014
This ambitious series is unlike anything else on television. Creator Noah Hawley weaves a tense, funny, and thrilling story involving a new troupe of actors each season. In the first season, Martin Freeman, Allison Tolman, and Billy Bob Thornton are standouts. In the second, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and Patrick Wilson evade danger at every turn. The third season features Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon, David Thewlis, and Ewan McGregor playing a set of identical twins.

LetterkennyFebruary 7, 2016
Wayne is just a good ol’ country boy living in Letterkenny, Ontario: A town divided into three groups: Hicks, Skids, and Hockey Players. The comedy series follows Wayne as he tries to protect his homegrown way of life on the farm against a world that is constantly evolving around him. If that sounds simple, I suggest you let that one marinate.
Catch-22May 17, 2019
Pianosa Island, Italy, World War II. Bombardier John Yossarian tries to fulfill his duty, maintain sanity and return home as soon as possible. A great watch if you want to see heroism clash with military incompetence and bureaucracy (or if you just want to see George Clooney yell out marching orders).
Veronica MarsSeptember 22, 2004

While juggling the typical teenage trials, she also moonlights as a private investigator under the instruction of her detective father. The first season of this show is literally one of the best first seasons of any show ever. It’s funny, it’s sincere, and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Dimension 404April 4, 2017
