The bar-setting ABC television drama series Lost is now available in its entirety on Hulu. This press release announcement follows the expired deal Netflix had with the Disney – ABC Television Group. That deal had placed the renowned supernatural drama series in the hands of Netflix from 2009 until now.
Lost came to us in 2004 from the brilliant minds of J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof, and Jeffrey Lieber. Their strong suit kept us on the edge of our seats throughout six seasons of what had to be the most mind-bending television drama of all time. There is no surprise that it sits comfortably with a teeming amount of awards at its side and some well-deserved nominations. Most notable to the mega-fan series was the awarded Golden Globe for Best Drama Series in 2006, and the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2005.
Now, we get to enjoy bingeing our favorite series on the already well-established Hulu. Also, Netflix is potentially being acquired by Apple in the future. So, this couldn’t be a better situation for us viewers who like our streaming services just the way they are.
We don’t just get access to all the Lost we want with Hulu. Accompanying ABC television series include, but are not limited to: black-ish, Designated Survivor, and the nostalgic sitcom The Golden Girls. Hulu will also host a reboot of the beloved cartoon stooges Animaniacs. Toon enthusiasts will be happy to hear this is also coupled with the complete Tiny Toon Adventure selection, including my personal favorite: Pinky and the Brain. Among the exciting news, Hulu has big plans with BBC One as well.
What do you geeks think of the news? Is all that re-watchable content worth giving Hulu a shot if you already haven’t? Are you Netflix subscribers still happy? Let us know in the comments!
