Contributing Writer

Hulu brings laughs in November, starting with its own new series about the awkwardness of modern dating, The Bisexual, and reaching back to the classic cringe humor of Married With Children. The movie list includes classic comedies The Big Lebowski and Ocean's 11 (2011), and 2010's Kick-Ass. On the serious side are fraught romance stories, from 2011's version of Jane Eyre, to modern Chilean tale Gloria.

Here's a preview of what's coming next month on Hulu.

Baskets, Season 3 (Nov. 23)
