Get Your Brits Via Hulu

So we all know there are loads of British series on Netflix, but there are also plenty on hulu as well. So here are a list of some of the better ones:


Misfits – this is the big one and it’s not on Netflix so you have to mosey on over to Hulu to watch this fantastic series.


Fresh Meat – this was just recently added to Hulu and it’s a fantastic show. There aren’t nearly enough shows about being in college and on top of that this is British!


The Thick of It – I’ve mentioned this show before, it’s fantastic.


Peep Show – also on Netflix.

The Thick of It


So we start watching this show The Thick of It on Hulu and we’re thinking that the format seems very familiar. Of course, I look it up on Wikipedia and it turns out Veep (which we’ve watched) is based off of this show. Ah, I should have known, tricky little bastards. From now on I’ll look up to see if any US show was based off of a UK show.

The main reason I checked this show out, I  must admit, was because I noticed the main character was Sid’s (Skins) dad. Then as I’m watching it and laughing a lot, I notice that one of the other characters is no other than David Blood (Skins). Well then, you got my attention. 

But seriously, great show, check it out.

*Just as I was about to hit publish on this I noticed Tony and Effy’s mum (Skins), this is quite the reunion.
