My Hulu Queue

I've discovered some gems on Hulu I thought I'd share. These aren't Hulu+ so you don't need a subscription, and this is not a sponsored post or anything -- just what I've been watching lately, as well as stuff I've stumbled across one way or another and will be watching sooner or later.

Such as Elvira's Movie Macabre. If you grew-up in the '80s, you're already quite familiar with the Mistress of the Dark, but new fans will love her... charms as well. I understand she has a new outing, so to speak, but I haven't seen it. These are the gems of B-grade schlock Elvira was known for hosting, replete with her bodacious wraparounds. Great stuff, especially for late nights when there's absolutely nothing better to do.

The Loop is about as good a sit-com as you can get these days and I'm surprised it didn't last longer than it did (just two season, Fox!?). Fox has never been known for knowing what it has and The Loop proves this all too well. It's raucous and bawdy, but too cerebral to be "dirty"... usually. Either way, it's great!

RiffTrax is now available on Hulu, too! You can find a link to all of their stuff on the sidebar, but Hulu has a handful of great picks to get you going. They also have a nice selection of Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes, from all incarnations and castmembers.

I also got into Fairly Legal, and not just because the cast is so super-hot (it is). It's a really fun little procedural dramedy that would play well on any major network, but always seems more at-home on a cable station for some reason. You don't need to know much to get going, even though there is an overarching storyline having to do with the main character's father and (maybe?) ex-husband. Good show, despite what you do or do not know about the background.

I'd love to hear what you're into, if you feel like sharing!
