3 underrated Hulu shows that are perfect to watch for the winter

The holiday season may be behind us, but we still have another month to go before winter ends. The weather may be cold outside, but Hulu is encouraging us to stay warm inside while catching the three underrated shows that are perfect to watch for the winter.

It’s no coincidence that all three of the shows that we’ve chosen are produced by FX, a cable network that’s well-known for  ts high-quality dramas. FX on Hulu has consistently given subscribers a number of binge-worthy shows, but the three that we’ve chosen seem to be extremely well-suited for the season. And all of three them can be easily binged before spring rolls around in March.

Fargo (2014-Present)

Jon Hamm in Fargo season 5.

The first two seasons of Fargo were critically acclaimed, but the buzz has considerably died down on this anthology series. Regardless, the recently released fifth season is a return to form that focuses on Dorothy “Dot” Lyon (Juno Temple), the devoted wife of Wayne Lyon (David Rysdahl) and the mother of Scotty Lyon (Sienna King). Everyone has their secrets, but Dot’s hidden past is a dozy.

After inadvertently drawing attention to herself, Dot survives an attempted kidnapping, only to be confronted by a man from her past: Sheriff Roy Tillman (Jon Hamm). And Tillman isn’t the only one with a grudge against Dot, or even the only threat to the life that she has built for herself and her family.

A Murder At the End of the World (2023)

If you thought the weather in Fargo was cold, then you aren’t prepared for the arctic chills of Iceland in A Murder At the End of the World. An enigmatic billionaire, Andy Ronson (Clive Owen), has invited true crime detective Darby Hart (Emma Corrin), her former partner, Bill Farrah (Harris Dickinson), and several other guests to his remote compound for a special event.

While attempting to clear the air with Bill, Darby comes across him after he’s been mortally wounded by an unknown assailant. And if Darby can’t find the killer soon, then Bill won’t be the only one who gets murdered.

Justified: City Primeval (2023)

Timothy Olyphant in Justified: City Primeval.

There’s not a snowflake in sight in Justified: City Primeval, the sequel miniseries to FX’s Justified. But U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) has rarely encountered a more coldblooded killer than Clement Mansell (Boyd Holbrook), aka “The Oklahoma Wildman.”

After Clement commits two brutal murders, Raylan is forced to remain in Detroit until he can unravel the case and make charges stick against Mansell. This is easier said than done as Clement proves to be very slippery, as he has help staying out of prison. Clement is also eager for a showdown with Raylan, and not shy about targeting him or even about approaching Raylan’s teenage daughter, Willa (Vivian Olyphant).

3 action movies on Hulu you need to watch in April 2024
John Cena and Alison Brie in Freelance.

There's almost never a shortage of action movies to watch on Hulu, thanks to the large selection of titles from 20th Century Fox's library of films. And unlike its corporate sibling, Disney+, Hulu gets to have a lot more R-rated flicks as well.

Regardless, all three of our picks for action movies to watch on Hulu in April have PG-13 ratings. These were all recent arrivals on Hulu, and two of the three are sci-fi flicks. But if you're looking for a more conventional action comedy, we've got one of those for you as well.

3 underrated movies on Max you need to watch in April 2024
Pierece Brosnan in The Thomas Crown Affair.

Although most of Max's monthly programming is devoted to endless reality shows, it still has a movie lineup that's worthy of the HBO name that it used to have. The Warner Bros. Pictures catalog is more than enough for almost any cinema lover, but Max has also brought in a few films that are on loan from other studios.

This month's picks for the three underrated movies that you have to watch on Max in April are all from the '90s. And while they captured the attention of moviegoers during their initial release, they've fallen by the wayside in the ensuing decades. Let's change that, shall we?

3 underrated action movies on Amazon Freevee you should watch in April 2024
Denzel Washington in The Equalizer.

Free is the best price there is, but Amazon Freevee's selection in April is looking a little suspect. The movies may be free, but the selection is awful. This is a big problem with the action movies on Freevee, which are overrun with dreck and more Steven Seagal films than we've ever heard of before.

Hopefully, this is an aberration, and Freevee will add better films at the beginning of May. But for now, the following films are our choices for the three underrated action movies on Amazon Freevee that you have to watch in April. Enjoy them while you can, because we had to really dig to find them on Freevee.
