What I'm Watching on Hulu
Grab your favorite snack and get ready to binge watch!
I’m sharing 10 shows I love watching on Hulu- a mix of old and new! Most of these shows are currently on TV, but 6 years ago I made the swap from cable to Hulu. It’s much cheaper and I find myself less dependent on the background noise. I’m not as dependent on filling my free time with watching shows. Instead, I revert to watching these shows when I want to- after I work and make time for other activities.
Absolutely obsessed with this show. My man, Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger on Gilmore Girls) stars in this medical drama and may more may not be what peaked my interest in this show. The tv drama is centered around Doctor "Conrad Hawkins. He “is one of Chastain Park Memorial Hospital's best doctors. Charming and arrogant, Conrad likes to take an unconventional approach whenever possible and believes it's his personal duty to shatter the romantic illusions of the first-year residents. Dr. Devon Pravesh is an innocent idealist who leans on his finely tuned moral compass, but with Conrad's help, he begins to realize that the practice of medicine is a business, like any other, with less-than-angelic patients and fallible doctors.”
2. Grey’s Anatomy
What can I say, I have a thing for medical dramas. Back in high school I binge watched this show (in record timing, might I add) and I’ve been hooked ever since. Just this year Grey’s hit a milestone as being the longest running medical drama on TV surpassing ER with 330+ episodes! This show follows “a group of young doctors at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital, who began their careers at the facility as interns. One of the young doctors and the show's namesake, Meredith Grey, is the daughter of a famous surgeon. Grey struggles to maintain relationships with her colleagues, particularly the hospital's one-time chief of surgery, Richard Webber, due to a pre-existing relationship between them - Webber and Meredith's mother had a personal relationship when Meredith was young.”
3. The Bold Type
I stumbled upon this show needing something fun and upbeat to watch… other than Friends, since I’ve seen every episode approximately 197 times- but who's counting, right ;) I love how this show encompasses comedy, relevant media/ world issues and is focused on empowerment, equality while upholding a comedic tone. “Putting together a magazine is not an easy task, requiring a lot of teamwork to finish the job and get the publication on newsstand shelves. That's why the staffers responsible for producing global women's magazine Scarlet lean on one another as they try to find their own voices. While working together to publish each issue of the periodical, they struggle to find their identities, manage friendships and find love. The drama series is inspired by the life of longtime magazine editor and executive Joanna Coles, who serves as an executive producer.
4. Black Sails
This show came up as a recommendation and I thought, “why not?” Black Sails is the “prequel to the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel "Treasure Island," "Black Sails" is a pirate adventure that centers on the tales of Captain Flint, who has a reputation throughout the West Indies as being the most brilliant, most feared of all the Golden Age pirates. It's 1715, and as Flint fights for the survival of New Providence Island -- a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers -- in the wake of threats from British and Spanish forces, he aligns himself with Eleanor Guthrie, daughter of the local kingpin, to hunt the ultimate prize and ensure his people's survival. But standing in the way are rival captains, Eleanor's intrusive father, and perhaps the bigger obstacle of all: John Silver, a young, fast-talking, authority-flouting sailor recently added to Flint's crew.”
5. Chicago Med
“The city's most highly skilled medical team saves lives, while navigating their unique interpersonal relationships. The Gaffney Chicago Medical Center's elite team of dedicated doctors, nurses and staff face challenges each day as they do what it takes to treat their patients, sometimes in surprisingly inventive ways. As the city's last line of defense, doctors Charles, Reese, Halstead, Rhodes, Choi, and Manning; nurses Sexton and Lockwood; and hospital administrator Sharon Goodwin embody the heart of Dick Wolf's triad of Chicago series.”
6. Chicago PD
“District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is composed of the uniformed cops, who deal with street crimes, and the Intelligence Unit, which deals with major crimes like drug trafficking and high-profile murders. Sgt Hank Voight - a tough boss who doesn't mind bending the rules a little in the pursuit of justice - heads the unit's elite team. The responsibilities of life on the force take a toll on the officers, as they struggle to balance their personal lives with the strain of the job. From Emmy-winning producer Dick Wolf.”
7. 7th Heaven
“Eric Camden is a reverend and the father of numerous children who faces the challenges of raising a family during permissive times. Both he and wife Annie deal with the problems of a large family while keeping their romance alive. Legendary producer Aaron Spelling served as an executive producer on the show.”
8. Beverly Hills 90210
“One of the definitive shows of the 1990s, "90210" originally follows the lives of Brandon and Brenda Walsh, who both eventually leave the show, and their friends through high school and college into adulthood. In addition to making sideburns momentarily cool again during its run, the show deals with a steady stream of love triangles and other romantic entanglements, and occasionally touches on more serious issues as well.”
9. Grand Hotel
Based on the hit Spanish telenovela, El Grand Hotel (available on Netflix), this Americanized modern adaptation follows “the professional and personal lives of people working at a family-run hotel in Miami Beach” after a staff member mysteriously disappears and the hotel is shifting in status.
“Wealth, beauty and status define the people who live in the Hamptons. But one woman seeking revenge could destroy it all. Emily Thorne lived in the Hamptons until an incident ruined her family and their reputation, forcing them out of town. Years later, she has returned to her old neighborhood, blending in with the citizens and making friends, not letting on that she has lived there before. In an effort to right some of the past wrongs, she plans vengeance on those who wronged her and her family -- and she doesn't care at what cost.”
