Crossing the Streams: TV to Watch Online — “Casual” Sex, Superheroes and More!

Crossing the Streams: TV to Watch Online — “Casual” Sex, Superheroes and More!:

What’s new on Hulu? Amazing on Amazon? Binge-worthy on Netflix? Crossing the Streams spans the web to find the best TV shows and specials freshly available to watch online. You’re welcome!


CASUAL (Hulu)
Valerie (SNL alum Michaela Watkins) and Alex (The Mindy Project’s Tommy Dewey) have no boundaries. They’re grown siblings who live together with her teenage daughter (God Bless America’s Tara Lynne Barr) and share everything, including the most intimate details of their sex lives. Valerie’s a recently divorced shrink who’s drowning in the dating pool; Alex is an online-dating website creator who’s a total shark. Every Wednesday, Hulu releases a new episode of this sitcom, directed by the likes of exec producer Jason Reitman (Juno), Fred Savage and Max Winkler (Fonzie’s son!).


SUPERMANSION (Crackle)
Bryan Cranston breaks good as the exec producer and star of this animated superhero comedy. He provides the voice of Titanium Rex, an aging crimefighter who’s battling both erectile dysfunction and nemeses like evil prop comic The Groaner. The voice cast also includes Seth Green (whose Robot Chicken partners in crime created the show), Workaholics’ Jillian Bell, Keegan-Michael Key, Chris Pine and more. Three episodes are available now, with more streaming every Thursday until Dec. 17.


RED OAKS (Amazon)
This new 10-episode coming-of-age comedy series channels the spirit of Caddyshack as it follows a teenager (22 Jump Street’s Craig Roberts) working at a country club in 1985. His parents are played by Spin City’s Richard Kind and Dirty Dancing’s Jennifer Grey, and among the standouts in the supporting cast are Paul Reiser (as a wealthy amateur tennis player) and MadTV grad Josh Meyers (as a sleazy photographer). The behind-the-scenes lineup is equally impressive: Steven Soderbergh exec-produces, and episodes are directed by indie-film autuers Hal Hartley and David Gordon Green.


PLEASE LIKE ME: SEASONS 1 AND 2 (Hulu)
Ahead of its third-season premiere on the cable channel Pivot on Oct. 16, catch up on the first two seasons of this acclaimed Australian comedy series. Creator Josh Thomas stars as a teenager who’s the last to realize he’s gay, just as his mother attempts suicide and enters a mental hospital. Okay, so it might not sound funny, but it is — painfully so. Kind of like life.


CLOUDSTREET (Acorn TV)
Another import from Down Under, this six-hour miniseries adapts Tim Winton’s sprawling novel about two working-class families who share a house in Perth from 1943-1963. Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave) and Essie Davis (The Babadook) co-star. If you can’t get enough of the lovely Davis, check her out as a glamorous 1920’s Aussie sleuth in Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, also streaming on Acorn TV.
