Marvel's Runaways

Marvel's Runaways is Hulu's first venture into the realm of superheros. If you haven't heard it is actually based on a very popular comic book series of the same name! Like any graphic novel or book the comes to life on big or small screens some of the origin story has been altered but the main plot stays the same. In Marvel's Runaways six Los Angeles based teenagers discover their parents are all a part of a criminal organization known as PRIDE. Once they realize all the horrible things their parents have been doing the teenagers team up to stop them. This show has everything from meta-humans and aliens to insanely intelligent humans with the capability to make machine with both wonderful and disastrous things happen.

One Tree Hill

If I'm being honest I'm not even sure where to begin when it comes to just how extraordinarily special this show is to anyone who loved The CW back in 2003. Originally, 'One Tree Hill' followed the lives of five teenagers through their small hometown of Tree Hill. From the very start two of the main characters have it out for one another as they are half brothers that grew up despising one another. As the show moves forward Both Lucas and Nathan grow closer and the list of main characters grow much larger and far more complex. The show deals with struggles many people have and will face in society. Addiction, love, heartbreak, betrayal, and whether or not to follow your dreams are all common struggles both in life and in the lives of Tree Hill residents. Words just don't do the complexity of these characters justice. Originally on the CW, moved to Netflix, and once dropped from there was thankfully saved by Hulu. The show has 9 seasons so if you start it now you'll be hooked for weeks.

Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist

Starring: Jane Levy

The newest must watch on my Hulu playlist still in it's beginning stages. Jane Levy plays a girl named Zoey who was getting a medical procedure done when something went wrong. Now she can hear everyone's inner most thoughts. Which sounds pretty amazing in and of itself, but sometimes having to listen to your own innermost thoughts is hard enough, I can't imagine having to hear the innermost thoughts of absolutely everyone I came into contact with. Oh, did I forget to mention the major problem all of these inner most thoughts are relaid to Zoey in musical numbers that only she (and the viewers) are able to see? This show is delightfully hilarious and I can't wait to see what happens next.

Being the type of person to love documentaries has never been easier than it is while watching Drunk History. The concept of this show is relatively simple. Find someone famous (21 or older) that knows a lot about a specific topic in history, have a couple of drinks with them and then have them tell you all about said topic while using other actors and actresses to act out the story as though they are reliving it (wardrobe and all) as it is being told.

It is actually an extremely clever concept that leaves you laughing through out and at the end you have learned some really interesting historical information. Personally, my favorite episode features Lin-Manuel Miranda who is discussing none other than the topic of Alexander Hamilton.

The Bold Type

Currently, a show that runs on FreeForm, 'The Bold Type' is my number one go to show for female empowerment that is honest, bold, and straight to the point, but not overpowering. I am a feminist at heart but there are some shows that try so hard to push "the feminist agenda" that they just come off as a tacky attempt at making a point. The Bold Type is anything but that. Originally inspired by the life of 'Cosmopolitan' editor in chief, Joanna Coles. The show is a glimpse into the lives of three headstrong best friends that work for Scarlet magazine. They get into fights, chase their dreams, fight for what is right, and at the end of the day have one another to lean on. New episodes arrive on Hulu the day after the episode airs on FreeForm, 'The Bold Type' is everything right about television today.

While there are several other fantastic shows on Hulu with many more on the way these are five of my favorites. Some new, some old, all outrageously hard to turn off.
