Here Are The Best TV Shows On Hulu & Amazon Prime For Fall 2016

When it comes to the streaming game, Netflix tends to dominate discussion — especially when it comes to its original shows. From Stranger Things’ viral success (seriously you guys, what’s with all the Barb love?) to the ongoing Marvel/Netflix money factory, it’d be easy to think they’re the only game in town.

While Hulu and Amazon Prime may both be playing catch-up, but they’re using this opportunity to put out some really great shows. So here are a few series that might deserve your attention if the networks aren’t doing it for you this fall.

OK, so Hulu didn’t create The Mindy Project, but they did step in to pick it up when Fox cancelled the show after its 3rd season. Season 4 appeared on the service last year, and we’ve only got to wait until October for Mindy Kaling and co. to be back on our screens.

Sure, there aren’t any new episodes on the way this fall, but you owe it to yourself to check out this 8-part Stephen King adaptation if you haven’t yet. James Franco time travels back to 1960 in an effort to prevent the assassination of JFK, but finds things aren’t that simple.

Chance

We haven’t actually seen Chance yet, but the odds are in its favor. Why? Well, for one it stars Hugh Laurie, who between House, Veep, and The Night Manager has proved he knows how to pick a TV show. Throw in the fact that Hulu has already booked two seasons of the show, then you know it must be good.

 

Amazon Prime

The Man in the High Castle

Amazon’s biggest, glossiest, and most Nazi-filled series debuted last year, and season 2 arrives this December. The alternate history of Axis-occupied America takes the original Philip K. Dick novel and expands it a lot further. We can’t wait to see where it goes next.

Transparent-Amazon-083016
Amazon
You only have to look at Transparent’s awards cabinet to know its something special. It already has 5 Emmys (with another 10 nominations this year) and 2 Golden Globes from its first couple of seasons. It tackles some weighty LGBT issues, but it’s also funny as hell. Bring on season 3!

One Mississippi

Comedian Tig Notaro is getting auto-biographical in this show about a woman returning home after her mother’s death. That may not sound too cheery, but with both Louis C.K. and Diablo Cody helping produce it, we have faith that  One Mississippi is going to be pretty special.

Crisis in Six Scenes

This is the big one. Amazon basically wrote film legend Woody Allen a blank check and let him make whatever he wanted, and this ‘60s-set tale is the result. It’ll star Allen himself, alongside Elaine May and Miley Cyrus (!), and if that isn’t enough to get you excited then I just don’t know how to help you.
