I've signed up for the free one month preview so I can check out The Handmaid's Tale. It' s got 10 episodes so if I like it enough I'll sign up for an additional month to finish it off. Although I don't plan on keeping it past then. I already have Amazon Prime and Netflix and that's more than enough for me.
In addition to The Handmaid's Tale I also plan to checkout the first season of unReal (I heard it was good but dropped off during the second season), the original Danish version of The Bridge (the US/Mexico version was alright), The Path (hello Hugh Dancy even if he does have that awful haircut), and maybe Fargo.
I'm both happy and bummed to discover that Smallville is here. Almost all of the other WB/CW shows ended up on Netflix but sadly Smallville wasn't one of them. Now it's on Hulu exclusively so once I cancel, it's bye-bye Smallville. Yes, I have the DVDs and yes, I have several episodes on iTunes but the convenience of streaming is so nice. Plus I'm lazy.
I'm positively giddy to discover that the BBC adaptation of Daniel Deronda starring a baby Hugh Dancy is also on Hulu. And because life is about extremes, I'm also amused to discover that Savage Grace, an indie movie mostly known for being about an incestuous relationship between Julianne Moore and a very, very young Eddie Redmayne, is also available. Of course the selling point for that movie is that Hugh Dancy has a small role as Julianne Moore's lover and gets engaged in a three way scene between mother and son. Tumblr gifs of that movie have him slinking around like a boss in a very fetching white fedora.
