The Best of What’s Coming to Hulu in January 2018

Start the year off right with Quentin Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Kathryn Bigelow

Look, January sucks. With the holidays behind us, the wintry chill starts feeling less dreamy and more unforgiving, keeping us in our living rooms. Fortunately for us, there’s plenty to watch on TV, especially on Hulu, which has a ton of goodies on the way.

From age-old lessons with Mr. Miyagi to creepy Texas parables, there are so many gems to parse through. It’s admittedly a comprehensive list, but we chiseled it down to the best of the best, even including everything that’s leaving come February.

So, start your new year right by planning accordingly below.
