Best TV shows/movies on Netflix or Hulu?
Posted: Posted June 10th by Agis in the US

For those that have Netflix or Hulu, what are some good movies or tv shows you've been watching?

I just finished F is for Family, an adult cartoon about a dysfunctional family. Very raunchy. Bill Burr voices the dad.

Some other shows I've really enjoyed were Bojack Horseman, another adult cartoon that I really love. On Hulu, there's This is Us, an NBC drama about a family of triplets, where one dies in childbirth and is replaced by an adopted black boy. Storylines jump from throughout their life to the present day when the kids are 37 and they have families and issues. Very good.

Drunk History is always, always a riot. Really wish there were more episodes. If you like history, don't wait another minute before trying this one out.

Movies. Recently I've been watching some good documentaries. Get me Roger Stone was really eye opening about one of Trump's advisors, and how he influenced the 2016 campaign, but also had a hand in a lot of things from Watergate to the present day. If you're interested in politics I'd definitely recommend. Also watched the OJ: Made in America documentary, very good. Oklahoma City Bombing documentary, very good look into the original far-right movement from the nineties that's still very relevant today.

I'm looking for all kinds of movies, though. Comedies, horror, drama.

I'm pretty into the Netflix comedy specials. Really liked Hasan Minhaj's recent "Homecoming King." Loooooove Bo Burnham's two specials "what." and "Make Happy." (Make Happy is actually a special I'm currently doing a deep dive on. It's so good.) Chelsea Peretti's "One of the Greats," and John Hodgman's "Ragnarok" are good. Also love Maria Bamford's "the Special Special Special" and "Old Baby."

For shows on Netflix, there's a lot. Stranger Things, Bojack Horseman, Orange is the New Black, Master of None, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (even though I'm less into it this latest season).

It's not a Netflix-produced thing, but I just recently saw that The Overnight is on there now for streaming. Highly recommend it!

Stranger Things, Jessica Jones, and House of Cards are the best ones I've seen. Daredevil season 1, while not as good as Jessica Jones, is pretty good. However, the second season focused too much on Punisher and Elektra imo and Luke Cage started strong, but the main antagonist was weak compared to the other three baddies

Are you talking about cottonmouth? He was amazing.

I just wrapped up 2 seasons of Narcos. Loved it.

Starting on Season 5 of Orange is the New Black.

The new season of OitNB has been pretty polarizing, and it is pretty weird. I know my sister really hated it, but I really loved it. It's not the best season, but I liked it.

I loved Glow, which just came out, like, a week or two ago. Marathoned that pretty quickly.

What is Glow about? I didnt see it on my list of recommendations.

I have a lot of spanish stuff on my watchlist but I think I will finish The Crown after Orange is the New Black. My friend really enjoyed season 5.

The Americans just finished it's fifth season, and I still think it's one of the best shows on TV. I know you can watch it on Amazon Video, not sure if it's on Netflix.

Been watching House of Cards, but a little burned out at the moment.

American Gods was pretty good, but also so short I'm not sure it's worth bothering with until another season or two are out.

Loooooove Bo Burnham's two specials "what." and "Make Happy."

I really enjoyed them too, but they seem oddly divisive. My friends are about 50/50 hate/love.

I think Bo Burnham is a bit divisive himself. I just never would have thought that this kid that made edgy and kind of gross/offensive-based humorous songs on the internet would go on to make these two specials that are dark, introspective performance pieces filled with scathing reviews of our social norms and values. I love how uncomfortable it can get. But a lot of people just want their comedy to be nice and simple, and I get that. I just prefer the harder comedy that turns it more into an artform.


American Gods was a great book, but I've heard good things about the show. It's Showtime, though, right? They don't put that on Hulu or Amazon, do they?

I'll also mention Tig Notaro's "One Mississippi" on Amazon Prime. Just six episodes, but it's a really personal and touching story of her dealing with the loss of her mother.


Glow is about lady wrestlers trying to break out in the 1980s. It's got Alison Brie and Marc Maron.

(Vague Marvel Netflix spoilers ahead) Cottonmouth was indeed great, so I assume Riku was referring to Diamondback. Who was awful IMO. As for the analysis of Daredevil, I actually think the Punisher/Elektra stuff was the good stuff, while the Hand stuff was the back stuff. I also favor DD Season 1 over Jessica Jones, although I think it's close.

Stranger Things was pretty excellent as far as Netflix original series are concerned. Can't say I've a lot of experience with other original series, though there are plenty of non-Netflix originals that are on Netflix that are excellent.

Some days I think JJ is better other days I think DAD is better. I loved the punisher parts of DD season 2 though.

OITNB is the first show in forever that has shown male genitalia multiple times. Needless to say I was surprised and happy I wasnt watching it at starbucks lol.

Probably possible since it's not tied to any cable networks.

True. I Dont think any other netflix show has done that so far. I could be wrong though.
