What’s New on VOD: Hulu October 2017.

Hulu increases its output in October.  That’s not hard, since it only had one new show in September!

It seems that Hulu is still feeling its way around creating original content.  It has had some stunning success this year already with The Handmaid’s Tale, now it just needs to increase the output so that there is more than one new offering every month.  A promising sign is the three original show premiers dropping in October, and the inclusion of a new documentary film about The Dana Carvey Show.  Sure, documentaries are kind of training wheels for new studios – lets not forget how long Netflix relied on documentaries! –  and The Dana Carvey Show may have been watched by all of two people (I assume Dana Carvey’s parents, but I could be wrong)  but at least Hulu is making an effort*

*Editor’s Note:  none of Hulu’s new content has trailers, so I take back what I said about them making an effort.  There’s not even a title shot image to be found!

Yeah, this was the closest to promo material I could find. Way to step up your game, Hulu.

Hulu October 2017.

Original Films:

  • Too Funny to Fail  (10/21)

This documentary takes a look a the tremendous hype and tremendous failure of The Dana Carvey Show, a prime-time talk show hosted by a comedian at the top of his career that flamed out spectacularly.  By examining one show, the doc talks more broadly about comedy and comedians and the rough transition many make to and from prime time.

Original Shows:

  • Chance Season 2  (10/11)
  • I Love You, America  (10/12)
  • Freakish  (10/18)

Our Pick:  Freakish.

After a chemical plant explodes nearby, a small town high school becomes a fallout shelter for a gaggle of adolescents.  Now the group of teenagers must survive the mutant apocalypse…and homeroom.

What could have been a flash in the pan send up of zombie apocalypse shows and young adult fantasy fulfillment has managed to bite and claw and snark its way into a full fledged show with two full seasons under its belt.  I can’t imagine three years trapped in the same mutant filled high school…oh wait, yes I can, yes we all can.  I guess that’s part of whats keeping this oddball mutant show going.
