March brings a torrent of new and returning shows to network and cable TV — much of it available on Hulu. There's some brand-new fare, like Shonda Rhimes's legal drama For the People. However, our eyes are primarily on the revivals of decades-old shows: Showtime at the Apollo and (especially) the Roseanne reboot, starring most of the old (and now much older) cast. In movie-land, Hulu is joining the remake craze with a sequel, of sorts, to the 2005 documentary March of the Penguins. To see accolades for the very best films of the past year, watch Hulu's replay of the 90th Academy Awards on March 5.

Real Humans: Seasons 1 & 2 (Feb. 1)

Broad City: Season 4 (Feb. 4)
Credit: Comedy CentralIn Broad City's three seasons on Comedy Central, show creators and actors Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have run through a series of madcap adventures during blissful New York summers. Season 4, set in the cold months, goes deeper into real life, including serious romantic relationships and even depression.
Archer: Dreamland: Season 8 (Feb. 5)
Credit: FXX FXX's animated workplace comedy about a spy agency has continually remodeled itself to keep from going stale. In Season 8, the titular secret agent has fallen into a coma, and dreams a season's worth of noir adventure in 1947 Los Angeles.
Brockmire: Complete Season 1 (Feb. 9)
IFC's new comedy is the story of a washed-up, alcoholic baseball announcer aiming for a comeback. Ten years after an on-air meltdown that banished him from the major leagues, Jim Brockmire is back, calling minor league ball in a Pennsylvania Rust-Belt town.
Parenthood: Complete Series (Feb. 15)
Based loosely on the 1989 Steve Martin film of the same name, this six-season NBC drama follows three generations of the Bravermans, with every imaginable trial that family life and child-rearing can involve.
Cardinal: Complete Season 2 (Feb. 16)
Many wicked things are happening in the Canadian winter. A long-missing girl has shown up dead, the killer eludes the police, and the cop investigating the case may himself be a criminal.
The Looming Tower: Season 1 Premiere (Feb. 28)
The 9/11 attacks shocked most Americans, but not some some U.S. intelligence agents, who had long been worried about the rise of al-Qaida. That's the story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 2006 book that inspired this Hulu miniseries.
Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra (Feb. 1)
One of France's most successful and expensive films is a madcap 2002 live-action tale based on the country's Asterix comic books. The far-too-complex to summarize plot includes Cleopatra, Caesar, Celtic armies, a magic potion and the world's biggest palace.
Blazing Saddles (Feb. 1)
Mel Brooks takes on American racism in this bonkers 1974 Wild West satire. When an avaricious government official tries to wipe out a Western town to build a railroad, an unlikely coalition of whites, blacks and Chinese come together to beat the villians back.
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (Feb. 1)
Chuck Barris created and produced some of America's most successful game shows, such as The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game and The Gong Show. That's all fact. Barris also claims to have been a CIA operative and assassin. Whether that's true or not, it makes for a great period-piece adventure in this 2003 film.
A Fish Called Wanda (Feb. 1)
Starring roles for Monty Python alums John Cleese and Michael Palin provide a good indication of how loopy this 1988 crime-caper comedy gets. They are joined by Jamie Lee Curtis and Kevin Kline (who won an Oscar for best supporting actor).
The Hurt Locker (Feb. 1)
War journalist Mark Boal's story, based on his experience with U.S. bomb-disposal teams, paints a nihilistic image of war-torn Iraq in this six-time Academy Award winner. It follows a crew living constantly on the edge of death, and shows that for some soldiers, at least, that's the only way they know how to live.
Manhunter (Feb. 1)
Miami Vice producer Michael Mann brings his signature intensity as director of this 1986 thriller from the Silence of the Lambs universe. Having captured Dr. Hannibal Lecter years earlier, emotionally tattered FBI agent Will Graham comes out of retirement to hunt down another psycho killer.
Swimming with Sharks (Feb. 1)
Given recent revelations about Kevin Spacey, his portrayal of the fictional sadistic Hollywood producer Buddy Ackerman feels all the more believable. In this dark 1994 tale, Buddy mercilessly bullies his young assistant, Guy, eventually pushing Guy to a shocking psychic break.
A Taxi Driver (Feb. 7)
Not the Robert De Niro movie. This 2017 film recounts South Korea's 1980 Gwangju Uprising. A goofy Seoul cabbie scores a lucrative fare to take a German reporter to see the unrest in Gwangju. What begins as a lighthearted road-trip movie turns deadly serious when the protesters and the military take up arms, and hundreds die.
Lucky (Feb. 11)
Harry Dean Stanton's final film is the quirky tale of a 90-year-old desert rat, who realizes he's nearing the end of a long life. Lucky embarks on a cranky old atheist's version of a spiritual journey to explore what it all means. Stanton died about two weeks before the film opened.
Star Trek (Feb. 14)
Original Star Trek characters Kirk, Spock and company return to the screen in this 2009 reboot, embodied by young actors with more nuanced personalities to fit the snake person era. Director J.J. Abrams pays homage to the original, though, with an extended cameo from Leonard Nimoy.
Fresh (Feb. 15)
Sean Nelson's first role remains his biggest, as a 12-year-old New York City drug courier in this 1994 film by debut director Boaz Yakin. Known as Fresh on the streets, the young man has to break the law to feed his family, and play criminals against each other to stay alive.
The Villainess (Feb. 21)
La Femme Nikita, Kill Bill, Prizzi's Honor — there's a long fascination with female assassins. In this South Korean take on the subject matter, a woman trained since childhood to be a killer is recruited by the nation's intelligence agency, and pushed so far that even her ice-cold blood boils.
Detroit (Feb. 23)
Credit: Francois DuhamelThis 2017 film commemorates the 50th anniversary of a dark crime and its subsequent cover-up. The police murder innocent civilians during the Detroit riots, then pin the civilian deaths on an innocent man: Melvin Dismukes, played here by John Boyega.
