‘American Horror Stories’
A spinoff of the FX series, American Horror Story, what we love about this series is that each episode is a standalone story. Some are historical, some take place in the future, and some are present-day with scenarios that are a little too realistic. There are 19 episodes currently available to stream anytime you’re in the mood for a little scare.

‘Such Brave Girls’
Let’s lighten the mood a bit. Such Brave Girls is a Hulu Original sitcom about a dysfunctional family – two sisters and their single mom. The series is pure chaos, with every character making terrible decisions and coping with the consequences in completely unhinged ways. Fair warning, it’s also been described as a “gross-out comedy” so it’s a love-it-or-hate-it series.
