More TV favorites and watchable flicks are coming.

Hulu is coming for your free time this month with a beefy offering of new TV favorites (Archer, Broad City, Parenthood), and, as always, a giant batch of movies that go live on the first of the month. The streaming service announced in January that it reaches 17 million monthly subscribers, and is planning a live TV guide that recalls a traditional cable menu soon.

There’s plenty more to choose from, including a stellar selection of fine new documentaries.

New on Hulu in February 2018: Editor’s pick

There’s…Johnny!

It’s 1974 and 19-year-old Nebraska native Andy Klavin has come to Hollywood to chase dreams. And he’s landed closer to them than most, securing a gofer job on Johnny Carson’s The Tonight Show. There’s…Johnny! incorporates tons of real footage from The Tonight Show, weaving storylines in, around, and behind actual events (including an extortion plot that actually happened). It presents an unquestionably rose-colored vision of what it must have been like to work at The Tonight Show during its heyday, but that’s OK—this is fawning fable, not latter-day deconstruction. —David Wharton

Future Man

This science fiction-tinged comedy from Hulu arrives courtesy of executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg—two guys as likely to make a pop culture reference as anyone. And pop culture references abound in Future Man as the show draws from science fiction and video game cliches. The premise, in which a janitor named Josh Futterman (Josh Hutcherson) is recruited by two resistance fighters from the future named Tiger and Wolf (Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson) after beating a video game, is essentially lifted from The Last Starfighter. Future Man acknowledges this, just as it acknowledges the copious nods Back to the Future and Quantum Leap. But damn if it isn’t funny. —Chris Osterndorf

Difficult People

Over-the-top narcissism, devious plots, and unhealthy relationships abound in the latest season of Hulu’s Difficult People—but this time, we’re in Trump’s America. Julie Klausner (Julie Kessler on the show) and Billy Eichner (Billy Epstein), who play two jaded aspiring comedians and best friends, star in the New York-centric comedy where pop culture is king and manners are left at the door. From the opening scene—which features Julie and Billy protesting a remake of a Stephen Sondheim musical featuring the cast of the Big Bang Theory—it’s clear that the show’s overblown-yet-contemporary themes are loud and clear in season 3. And that, as in past seasons, Difficult People is aimed at a demographic well-versed in culture and current events of all shapes and sizes. —Chris Leo Palermino
