    "The Handmaid's Tale is the best show on Hulu right now. Yes it certainly isn't a show for everyone because of its mature content but i very much liked it. And yes it is also hard to watch and pretty depressing but damn Elizabeth Moss' acting is so good. I even read the book after watching season 1. "

    "Future Man is one of the originals shows on Hulu which they created. Anyway, so if you enjoy offbeat, idiosyncratic, sci-fi and comedy theme shows then this is the show you should be watching as those themes are on this show. "

Did you know The Handmaid's Tale has helped boost Hulu subscriptions? The video-on-demand service might not have Netflix's numbers, but it is enjoying an increase in subscribers. Its subscription growth marked a 40% rise from 2016. Moreover, its total audience has grown to 54 million unique viewers. And that's not all, The Handmaid's Tale is also the first streaming show to win a Best Drama Emmy award. The service is known for its television reruns, but The Handmaid's Tale is its first original hit series based on Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel. The Hulu exclusive drama is one of the top shows on Hulu. The series is set in a dystopian future where women are forced into reproductive slavery to bear the child of the elite. Sure, the show's subject matter isn't easy to digest. But, it is a must-see for more than an entertainment fix. Hulu has released its second season in 2018 and renewed it for a third following its success. More importantly, The Handmaid's Tale led to a massive boom in business for Hulu.

Hulu has now offered original Hulu TV shows programming since the release of The Handmaid's Tale. This includes its best shows on Hulu from Stephen King's story adapted Castle Rock, Marvel's Runaways, and Future Man. Hulu has grown its TV library to 1,700 titles with more than 75,000 episodes. Yet, it still has a long way from reaching the kind of subscription base that Netflix enjoys globally. This is because until now Hulu is only available within the US and certain US military bases.

    "So I gotta be honest first that I wasn't sure that I will like The Mindy Project. But I was wrong because surprisingly I got hooked on this show as it is hilariously smart. FYI though this is not really an original Hulu show it just got moved to Hulu. "
