Top 5 best Hulu originalsLooking to find a great new show? These are the ones you should watch.
These are the top five best Hulu originals. You might be thinking, how on Earth can you actually rank these shows? And I'll say, I will use metacritic.com. Mostly because CBS owns it. Metacritic aggregates reviews and then assigns a metascore out of 100. For this list we're going to rank only shows that are not cancelled, and have a score. At number five is The Path with an average metascore of 67 over two seasons. This is that show best known as, that's the online show with Aaron Paul, right? Yep, it's that one. In The Path, Paul plays a guy who's breaking free of a cult that he was once part of [MUSIC] Number 4 is Harlots with the meta score of 74. This show takes place in the 1700s in London and it's about raising daughters in a brothel. I know what you're thinking. Another one of these shows, yeah, I know. However, there's only one season out right now with the second coming in 2018. At number three is Difficult People with an average metascore of 82. The show stars Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner, plus Amy Poehler is one of the executive producers. It kind of reminds me of You're the Worst with characters that can be kind of unlikable but are really amusing to watch. Either way, Difficult People is worth watching. At number two is Casual. With three seasons, its average meta score is around 84. This comedy slash drama is from the director of Juno, and Thank You For Smoking. So that should give you an idea of its sense of humor. This show centers around a woman who's adjusting to a life after divorce, and her best friend, her brother. And at number one is The Handmaid's Tale with a score of 92. This show is excellent with a great cast and covers some really, really serious subject matters. If you're looking for a happy-go-lucky show, run away from The Handmaid's Tale. However, if you wanna watch a program about a dystopian world, you found your show. If you're wondering where the Mindy Project fits in, it's an odd case. It's a continuation of a network show and It only had a metascore for one of its two Hulu seasons. So we left it off this list. If you're curious, season four of The Mindy Project got a score of 81. Anyway for more TOP5 check out the Internet because they're everywhere. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online. [SOUND]
