Charlotte's Web

Sunday, March 1
That's SOME PIG, baby! This classic animated adaptation of E.B. White's children's novel has been delighting families since 1972. It tells the story of Wilbur, a cute little pig who's the runt of the litter and gets saved from slaughter thanks to the intervention of a super-smart spider named Charlotte, who spins messages about what a special pig he is into her web. The real star of the movie is Templeton the rat, though, who's voiced by Paul Lynde. He's annoying but helpful. RADIANT! HUMBLE! TERRIFIC! TERRIFIC! TERRIFIC! (Trailer)


The Descent

Sunday, March 1

This gnarly little horror thriller is one of the most claustrophobic movies ever made. It follows a group of women who a go on a spelunking trip in a West Virginia cave to reaffirm their friendship after a tragic accident. Tension is already running high, thanks to the interpersonal conflict and the cave being more challenging than they anticipated, and then the flesh-eating humanoids show up. (Trailer)

Series premiere Thursday, March 5

Ex Machina and Annihilation director Alex Garland heads to TV for the first time with this philosophical sci-fi slow-burn. The limited series follows the story of a young software engineer, Lily Chan (Sonoya Mizuno), who investigates the secretive development division of the company she works for, which is run by a weird guy named Forest (Nick Offerman), because she believes it's responsible for her boyfriend's murder. Mostly, though, the show is about Garland's obsession with building lightbulbs into the walls of the set to give everything a beautiful golden glow. Episodes release weekly via FX on Hulu. (Trailer)

Pamela Adlon's brilliant FX comedy series returns with a new batch of episodes that find Adlon's Sam turning 50 and experiencing something like a mid-life crisis when she buys a big, macho muscle car.

The Most Dangerous Animal of All

Episodes available weekly starting Friday, March 7

Little Fires Everywhere

First three episodes premiere Wednesday, March 18

TV's biggest movie star Reese Witherspoon and Scandal alum Kerry Washington star in this two-hander limited series about the intertwined lives of rich white lady Elena Richardson (Witherspoon) and poor black lady Mia Warren (Washington). It's sort of like a Midwestern Big Little Lies, but woker. It's based on the bestselling 2017 novel by Celeste Ng. After the first three, new episodes roll out weekly. (Trailer)

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Friday, March 27
The lauded French film gets a surprise drop on Hulu if you'd like to add a little class to your life. Director and writer Céline Sciamma put together this sizzling story of an affair between an aristocrat woman and the female painter commissioned to paint her portrait in the late 18th century. It won Best Screenplay and Queer Palm at Cannes, and was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globes. And, of course, inspired some great Animal Crossing reproductions.

Complete 10th season available Sunday, March 29

After 10 seasons, you know that this animated comedy is about the interpersonal squabbles between Sterling Archer and his coworkers, even if the gimmicky premise changes. Season 10, aka Archer: 1999, is set on a spaceship, so the spy cliches it sent up earlier in its run are now sci-fi cliches. But despite the cosmetic change, it's the same old Archer. (Trailer)
