You’ve probably heard that Hulu has live sports… but did you also know they have a lot of interesting comedy series? On this week’s Mid-Season Replacements, Randy and Sean dig into three of Hulu’s recent offerings, exploring the effectiveness of High Fidelity, the emotional impact of Shrill, and the divisive critical reaction to Dollface. Along the way, their conversation touches on each series’ approach to character building, the modern trend of the secondary character-focused episode, and whether a show needs to make a definitive statement to be considered a “good” series.
Shows discussed: High Fidelity, Shrill, Dollface
Opening Track: “Curtains” by Ryan Elliott (of Ancient Fear)
The Mid-Season Replacements Podcast is a weekly show hosted by Goomba Stomp and TV Never Sleeps’ Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti, with new episodes debuting every Tuesday evening.
