For the weekend of Jan. 20, Streamline recommends the Fox show “9-1-1” in the top Hulu spot for the third time. Ryan Murphy co-created this new show about first responders, and it stars greats like Angela Bassett and Connie Britton.
The show is super shaky, and at times just a boring procedural, but it has very high highs and is worth checking out. Fox also renewed the show for a second season this week.
The Hulu original show “The Path” also joins the list. The show stars Aaron Paul (who recently made a cameo on Netflix’ “Black Mirror”) and focuses on life in and escaping from a small cult. The first couple seasons have earned somewhat positive reviews. What seemed to be holding the show back was very slow pacing, particularly in Season 2. This new third season tries to remedy that problem.
Hulu made various announcements at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour this week, most notably that it will be releasing George Clooney’s “Catch-22” show. Clooney will both direct and star in the novel adaptation, playing the character Colonel Cathcart.
Hulu also added 15 seasons of “ER,” so there is now a lot more Clooney on this streaming service than before.
Perhaps most importantly for the service, Hulu also released a trailer for the second season of their huge hit “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
