Welcome back, honeybees, to Binge-Worthy Buzz, our weekly series where we give you a bunch of recommendations of what to watch next. This week, we thought we’d give some special attention to what’s happening over on Hulu, considering how many new things are coming out there this week. Shall we get started?
Our first pick directly from Hulu is Miles Warren’s Bruiser, a story about fathers and toxic masculinity. Our main character is Darious, a 14-year-old boy going through the changes from childhood into manhood, and has this transition marked by interactions with his father, Malcolm, and a drifter named Porter.
Everything seems fine until Darious finds out Porter isn’t who he says he is, and now he’s in the middle of a conflict between the two men. But of course, this isn’t just any old fight; this conflict might just ruin his family (and his own safety.) Bruiser is currently streaming on Hulu.
Call It Love
Family issues can take quite the toll on a person, and Call It Love‘s Woojoo is living proof of that. Her father’s infidelity had some severe consequences for her life, and the consequences of that will definitely be showing up throughout the show. But of course, things can always take a turn for the worse; otherwise, there’s no story.
You see, what happens with Woojoo is that after her father’s death, she is kicked out of her house by her stepmother and ends up living in a rooftop house. Is it just us, or does that sound a little like a Cinderella type of story? But unlike the classic Cinderella, Woojoo is out for revenge! She gets a job at her stepmother’s ex-husband’s company, where she keeps running into the company’s CEO, Dongjin. Do we need to tell you where this is going? If you want to find out, head over to Hulu to watch it!
The Night Manager
Before you ask, no, we’re not talking about The Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston; we’re talking about another Night Manager. This adaptation brings Shan as the title character, who gets involved in a dangerous series of events involving a dangerous arms dealer.
Shan seemed okay with how his life was going up until that point, but being involved with the arms dealer and his inner circle wakes up a new side of him, and we love to see it on screen. After Shan’s first encounter with the arms dealer, he is recruited to infiltrate the inner circle of an international businessman with some ties to a secret arms trade. The Night Manager is currently available on Hulu.
Spin Me Round
So get this, Spin Me Round at first seems like a normal movie about an American spending some time in Europe, but that’s not exactly how it ends up going. In the first few minutes, we meet Amber, the manager of a restaurant chain in California who wins the chance to go on an all-expenses paid trip to Italy for the franchise’s educational program.
Things seem to be going great in Pisa, and Amber even meets the charming owner of the restaurant chain, Nick. But things soon take a turn for the worse, throwing Amber in the middle of a chaotic scenario with a very different adventure than she originally expected. Spin Me Round is available on Hulu.
All dressed up, and it’s not for themselves; that’s how we’d describe the six protagonists of Party Down. They’re all Hollywood wannabee actors and writers who are working at a fancy LA catering company while they don’t make it into a movie or TV show.
As is the nature of catering companies, this one caters to many different events, from senior singles mixers to Sweet 16 parties. Each episode focuses on a new event and how each of the six future stars acts at each of these. And let’s just say we can’t wait to see how that goes.
And this concludes our Binge-Worthy Buzz this week. We hope you’ve enjoyed this Hulu-themed round-up of things to watch, and if you did, tell us about it! You can find us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.
