Sure, you can’t experience success without some failures, but Hulu has managed to find its niche and build upon a good foundation without taking too many hits. Here are some of Hulu’s best and worst original shows so far.
1. The best: The Mindy Project
The Mindy Project is Mindy Kaling’s romantic comedy series about obstetrician/gynecologist Mindy Lahiri (Kaling also stars) as she attempts to balance work, life, and love. The series is one of those cursed shows where, despite widespread critical acclaim and positive word-of-mouth, viewership never experienced any kind of positive upswing.
Luckily, after Fox canceled the series following its third season, Hulu picked it up for more episodes. Writing about the fourth season, The New Yorker’s Emily Nussbaum writes, “There’s plenty to admire in the show’s willingness to cross the wires, to resist giving the audience what it craves.”
The Mindy Project’s sixth and final season debuts September 2017.
