The story behind Icarus is incredible... The story is so unbelievable it didn't seem real. If you have any interest in the Olympics or sports in general it's a must watch documentary.
Having spent a long time in the athletic performance industry, let my assure that it was very real; at least the discussions about how prevalent and easy PED use is. The other stuff?...well, Russia is a different place.

Thanks for all suggestions.

We watched Lilyhammer last night and loved it.

We were going to watch Fargo, but were prompted to pay...is that normal?

I've never been prompted to pay anything extra on Netflix. Amazon Prime, yes.

More normal than watching exercise or outdoors shows.

Where does normal fit in the universe derived from the Coen brothers?

EDIT! (gotta work on my literacy skills)

Prompted to pay on Netflix? Very to the point of unheard of unusual. On Amazon that's pretty common since restricting your searching/browsing to just free-with-Prime is difficult or impossible.

The Ranch.

It took me a couple episodes to warm up to it but now I am hooked. Sam Elliott's character is the best IMHO.

Currently watching Season 2 of The Crown.

For those with Amazon Prime, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was excellent!!

Just finished binge watching Longmire. While the ending is satisfying, I am sad it is over.
Yes, good ending. I like it when a series ends with clarity instead of leaving it open to interpretation (think Sopranos).
My wife and I hated the ending... Most of it made no sense to us, didn't match our perception of the main characters. We read afterwards that this triggered one of those big fans controversies on the Internet. But we really enjoyed the show overall, great acting. I started to read some of the corresponding novels.

Excellent show. San Junipero may be, in my opinion, the best tv episode I have seen. Completely surreal.

Small, otherwise throwaway lines, take on a new meaning in context.

Season 4 was excellent but at times a bit depressing, consistent with the rest of the show, particularly "Metalhead". I most enjoyed "Hang the DJ".
The San Junipero episode was quite impactful. It seemed to start out slow then at some point you realize what is going on and you are totally sucked in.

I enjoyed the first episode of season 3 also, kind of sums up my feeling of social media taken to its ultimate end.

Can’t wait to dive into season 4.

A toss up between Dark (Stranger Things but with time travel and older kids) and Godless (western). Netflix has been doing a great job with content this past year.

Casa de Papel

At the start you might think it's a cross between Run Lola Run and Mission Impossilble.By the end of the first episode those impressions start to fade and by the end of the second they are gone. A very twisty crime of the century series. Note you must be subtitle tolerate or have Spanish.

Have enjoyed season 2 of the Crown.

Yes I’ve watched that entire series. If you can get past the main characters being responsible for most of the significant IT developments in the past 30 years it is a good show.

Dark is also really interesting. It's a German show overdubbed with English, so that was a little off putting at first, TBH. But the premise is pretty interesting and I'm definitely hooked after 6 episodes. I think I would have been disappointed if I had been told it was like Stranger Things, though. It's much darker and totally devoid of humor (thus far).

I've never been prompted to pay anything extra on Netflix. Amazon Prime, yes.
The only time Netflix has asked us for money is if we try to stream and our kids already have 2 streams going. then it offers us the chance to upgrade to 3 simultaneous streams for added monthly fee.

Hulu, Your Current Favorite Show

Post by pennstater2005 » Thu Jan 11, 2018 4:16 pm

[Thread merged into here, see below (Page 14...) --admin LadyGeek]

Obviously piggybacking off of the popular Netflix favorite show thread.....

I recently switched from Netflix to Hulu. I have found a few shows I like to watch on Hulu. Baskets, The Goldbergs, Key and Peele and a few others. My problem is the user interface on the Roku I have isn't great. It's not easy to search for shows. So, any recommendations are welcome. Thanks!

Hulu did a big change to their user interface a few months back and it's much harder to browse content because they show only one title at a time. I have used hulu on Roku 3, Apple TV, iPad, iPhone and the UI is bad on all of those devices. You can try logging on to hulu.com on your computer to browse for content.

Blackish has some really funny episodes and some that are so so.

Shut eye is pretty good, its kind of like a USA "characters welcome" type show about a gypsy crime syndicate.

We have watched the entire Deep Space 9 series again except for the series finale and its a lot better than I remembered as a kid.

The new HULU UI does look better and it is better if you just want to watch the next show in your series but if you have a longer list of shows you watch or want to look for specific episodes then it sucks.

Part of the reason I switched to Hulu, for now, was because I was out of stuff on Netflix. The other part was the auto preview on the Roku of Netflix shows. It drove me crazy and there was no way to turn it off. I'm not talking about the autoplay feature. That was fine.

Thanks for the recommendations so far. The Handmaid's Tale is intriguing. I've caught bits and pieces of black-ish when it's been on OTA.

My suggestion is to use a computer or tablet to identify shows and then put it in the My Stuff folder.

The Lineup will give suggestions based on past viewing.

If you like Goldbergs, you will probably like Fresh off the Boat.

Dark is amazing. Ideally, switch to German w/English subtitles to watch. Also, try to get through an episode and a half before deciding to drop it - the first episode doesn't even really reveal the nature of the series, though it does open some interesting questions.

I found Superstore and it's fairly funny. The Handmaid's Tale is sort of brutal to watch.

My wife binge-watches "Brooklyn Nine Nine" on Hulu. We also enjoy "Shark Tank" and "Total Divas" (don't judge).
Brooklyn Nine Nine looks pretty funny. Not sure about Total Divas :wink:
I don't watch it for the plot and banter, but I think my wife does. :beer

We love a ton of British comedies available on Hulu:

Peep Show
Toast of London
The Mighty Boosh
Pramface

are a few of our favorites.
Thanks! We were subscribed to Acorn TV for a couple months through the Roku and enjoyed a few British shows namely Doc Martin. We did for the most recent season which wasn’t on Netflix. It’s only $4.99/month and they have tons of Britain, New Zealand, Canadian, and Australian tv shows.

With my FREE HULU on out "family" Sprint cell phone plan, I am going through Law and Order SVU episode by episode. Now on season 7.

Watch either on my Moto 4 smartphone or desktop.

After I do the Law and Order SVU - I will probably watch Will and Grace (starting in 1998 episodes).

Thanks for the tips. Just got Hulu a week ago specifically to watch Handmaid since it won several awards. As a long time Netflix user I am not too impressed so far. Handmaid was good (albeit deeply disturbing at times), but Netflix has a pretty outstanding lineup of original content so I'll have to be pretty impressed with Hulu to keep it beyond the trial period. My biggest issue with it is that the app on my smart tv hangs up about 50% of the time when it tries to launch a commercial so I have to bounce out and back in again. My wifi is blazing fast and we stream Netflix, FiOS on demand, online games on Xbox Live, etc. without a problem so I know it is the Hulu app and not my wifi. I'm not sure Hulu has the content for me to justify upping to the commercial free version, but we'll see. Thanks for the suggestions!

You can upgrade your free trial to the no commercials version. That's what I did. It was unwatchable with even limited commercials. Hulu's interface is not great but I've been finding some good content.
