When it comes to the world of streaming, things are pretty competitive. That is why it is nice to see streaming giants have a little fun with each other. It turns out, they are a fan of each other’s work too. Or at least, Hulu admits that it is.
Taking questions from Twitter, Hulu asked users to ask about its “top three anything.” User Charlie Ridgley seized the moment by asking what its top three Netflix originals are. Hulu responded with an answer! Check out the picks below, which include a challenge for Netflix to return the favor:
This is an interesting top three! You have a bit of everything. The one thing that #1 and #3 have in common is both being sci-fi series. Otherwise, this is a top three that showcases three distinct entries.
In third place is Netflix’s sci-fi series, Stranger Things. Hulu must be excited for Season 3! Although, probably a little nervous about what is to come out of it. David Harbour teased the end of Season 3 in a very thought-provoking way.
Taking second place on Hulu’s Top 3 is the animated adult dramedy, BoJack Horseman. The show, which features the voices of Will Arnett and Amy Sedaris, is also heading back for another season. It will be entering its sixth. BoJack Horseman follows its titular character, an anthropomorphic horse.
BoJoack deals with his share of self-loathing on the series, all the while trying to navigate the entertainment industry. Hulu is in good company in lauding the show. CinemaBlend’s own Nick Venable is also a fan.
Then there is number one on Hulu’s list – Black Mirror. The sci-fi series has been a critical and fan favorite ever since its debut. Interestingly, Black Mirror originated on Britain’s Channel 4 before coming to Netflix, but the show has been there since Season 3.
Hulu is standing by Black Mirror in a major way by having it top its list despite a divisive fifth season. Are their favorite episodes the same as CinemaBlend’s Gina Carbone? She shared her picks for the best episodes, including Season 5. Fans will have to stay tuned to learn if it will return for a sixth. Hulu might want to be the first to know!
As of this story’s publication, Netflix’s official Twitter handle has yet to answer Hulu’s challenge. There is a lot for the streaming giant to choose from. Maybe they are waiting for the not-too-adult Veronica Mars revival to arrive before commenting. This June is a busy month for Hulu with the return of The Handmaid’s Tale, among others.
You can join Hulu in binge-watching Stranger Things when Season 3 arrives Thursday, July 4 on Netflix. The first five seasons of Black Mirror (including Bandersnatch) and BoJack Horseman are currently streaming. Whether you are watching Hulu or what Netflix has to offer the rest of the year, summer will be hot when it comes to television premieres.
