In the digital age, spending the night watching cable television has become a thing of the past for a lot of students. More and more people are beginning to rely on streaming services for their entertainment, and while Net ix has been the go- to option for many students, Hulu is starting to break into the market more and more. One of the reasons for this is that students who pay for a Spotify membership will now receive a Hulu base membership for free. So, if you have it, here’s a list of the top 9 shows available on Hulu to get you started.
1. South Park
Hulu has exclusive streaming rights to this Comedy Central adult cartoon. New episodes of the current season of “South Park” can be found on Hulu the day after they air. This show is perfect for anyone looking to laugh at relevant topics such as politics, celebrities and technology. All 21 seasons of this show are available to stream.
All nine seasons of this classic 90’s sitcom, starring title character Jerry Seinfeld, are available on Hulu. This comedy is a great option for anyone who loved Friends, Cheers or Fraiser, as it has a similar style but brings in Seinfeld’s unique sense of humor, capturing the comedic side of living in New York City.
3. This Is Us
This new NBC drama has been getting a lot of attention since its premiere. It’s a great show for multiple generations to get into, showing the struggles and experiences of a family – something everyone can relate to. It has all classic drama elements including death, heartbreak, love and pregnancy. “This Is Us” is just starting season two, so it’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to join in on a series too late. The new episodes of the current season are available on Hulu the day after they air.
4. Bob’s Burgers
Many people were upset when this adult cartoon was taken off Netflix, but it’s now available on Hulu. This dry- humored show follows Bob, his wife Linda and their three kids as they get into ridiculous scenarios. This show is full of sarcasm, comedy and relatable awkward moments.
5. Rick and Morty
The first two seasons of this Adult Swim cartoon are currently available on Hulu. This show follows a boy named Morty and his grandfather Rick on some very crazy adventures and is very loosely based around “Back to the Future.” It’s great for anyone looking for some mind blowing, crude and dark humor.
7. Boy Meets World
Boy Meets World is one of Hulu’s newest additions. There was a large online campaign to get “Boy Meets World” on Net ix after the spinoff “Girl Meets World” premiered on Disney Channel in 2014, but it failed. Now, it’s on Hulu and students can rewatch the college years of the series as they experience it themselves.
8. Full House
There was a lot of hype surrounding the revival of “Full House” when the Net ix original series “Fuller House” premiered. “Fuller House” brings this classic family show to a new generation, but anyone from the old generation who would like to relive the classic Tanner family experiences from the 80’s and 90’s can see the entire series on Hulu. The show celebrates its 35-year anniversary this year.
9. Saturday Night Live
This sketch comedy show has been around since 1975 and has since been a home to many comedians including Jimmy Fallon, Adam Sandler, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell and John Belushi. Sketches range from political satire to mocking celebrities to fake commercials and everything in between. Each episode includes a celebrity host and a musical guest. Episodes of the current 43rd season are available on Hulu the day after they air.
