Here's what is on my mind this week:
I've been checking out some different shows to stream on Hulu lately. A lot of them happen to fall within a similar category of darker relationship comedy. Casual is one that I've watched the first season and about half of the second. I don't think I'll continue. It just isn't interesting to me. It isn't poorly done, it is just sort of boring and predictable. It also isn't that funny but it bills itself as a "comedy" I feel like. It is more dramatic more often than not, which isn't bad, but it isn't a good drama to me either. It might be worth checking out though, since comparatively it is one of the better Hulu Originals.
Another Hulu Original, Difficult People is by far the worst on this list. I've only been able to get through a few episodes since it has been very hard to watch in the sense that I just think it is a bad show. It isn't offensive or anything like that, it just misses the mark for me. It tries really hard to be funny and to do bits about whatever is going on, but it doesn't work. It seems like a lot of critics like it, but I haven't heard many other people talk about it.
I stumbled into this show via some good buzz online, and it is easily the best new show I've found recently. It follows two anti-relationship young people as they fall into dating each other. It is funny, has heart, and confronts important topics like depression. It just came back for season 3 on FXX, and I look forward to continuing with this one. It is definitely worth your time to check out. Seasons 1 and 2 are both on Hulu.
