What are the best shows on Hulu?

Netflix may be leading the online video streaming race but it's not the only contender in town. This time, let's take a look at one of its lesser-known but equally good competitors, Hulu. The video-on-demand service has been making waves since the release of one of its most successful original TV series(more on that below) back in 2017. Surely enough, Hulu has capitalized on this new-found popularity and doubled down on its TV shows offerings. It has now become a really compelling alternative to Netflix with its great selection of originally-made and licensed TV shows. We're here to help you sort through all of that and name some of the best shows on Hulu that you should check out first. Head on below and have fun watching! Oh, and please do tell us what you thought in the comments section as well.

  1. 1The Handmaid's Tale

    20

    To this day, The Handmaid's Tale is still one of the best shows on Hulu that you can watch if you haven't yet. It has a unique and compelling story that's unlike anything we've seen in a long time.

  1. 2Ramy

    14

    If you're one of those people who migrated to live in the US, this award-winning show is a must-watch. Ramy hits close to home as it explores what it's like to uproot your life and move to a completely new place and all the challenges that come with it.

  2. 3Taste the Nation with Padma Lakshmi

    10

    Food is as diverse as the people who make it and the culture that it's born out of. If you love American food just as much as we do, Taste the Nation will be right up your alley and would be one of the best shows on Hulu that you can watch.

  1. 4The Great

    8

    We here at Binge are always up for some good period drama shows and The Great is shaping up to a great watch. From the interesting set pieces to the intricate costume design, there's just something fascinating about it all. If you're of the same opinion as us, this is one of the best shows on Hulu that you can watch today.

  2. 5Love, Victor

    7

    Adolescence is a period of teen angst, puppy love, and a time of self-discovery. Love, Victor is a spin-off series for all of you who adored watching Love, Simon. You get much of the same feel as the original movie, but with more modern sensibilities that this generation of viewers will relate to more.

  3. 6Parks and Recreation

    5

    if you loved The Office, you'll love watching Parks and Recreation. Where The Office was awkwardly humorous, Parks and Recreation is just cute and funny, and we have to thank Amy Pohler's great performance for it. Watch it now while it's still available on Hulu.

  4. 7The Mindy Project

    4

    The Mindy Project is a light and quirky show that you can watch for some good fun and comedy. Now that it has landed on the streaming service, it's now one of the best shows on Hulu that you can watch right now.

  5. 8How I Met Your Mother

    4

    We won't go into the whole Friends vs How I Met Your Mother debate. What we'll say is that we enjoyed watching both based on their own merit. If you haven't watched it yet, it's one of the best shows on Hulu that you can check out today.

  6. 9Future Man

    3

    Future Man is a hard show to describe as it seems to be playing on a lot of sci-fi tropes that it starts to seems like a spoof of sorts. If you're a sci-fi fan, you like this show for the fun and humor, just don't expect it to make sense for most of the time.

  7. 1011.22.63

    2

    The out-of-this-world premise of 11.22.63 is exactly why you should consider watching one of the best shows on Hulu currently available right now. The story is compelling, the pacing is good, and you get to see James Franco on TV.

  8. 11Adventure Time

    2

    Anyone who says cartoons are only for kids clearly has not seen Adventure Time yet. This is one THE best shows on Hulu with its great voice acting, clever dialog, and the wide variety of mature themes that it tackles. Go watch it. You're gonna love it.

  9. 12Brooklyn Nine-Nine

    1

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the few shows that have been a joy to watch from the start. It has lovable and hilarious characters and stories that you'll actually care about. It's one of the best shows on Hulu that you just gotta watch. Nine-Nine!!

DID YOU KNOW?

The Handmaid's Tale was instrumental in helping Hulu boost its subscriptions. The video-on-demand service might not have Netflix's numbers, but it enjoyed a healthy increase (40%) in subscribers since the release of The Handmaid's Tale. That's not all, The Handmaid's Tale was also the first streaming show to win a Best Drama Emmy award. Hulu has a long way to go but this is a good first step in narrowing the gap between it and Netflix's popularity and market share.

    "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."
