50. Youth and Consequences

Where to stream: YouTube Premium

Number of seasons: 1

Synopsis: Farrah Cutney (Anna Akana) struggles to continue being “the queen” of Central Rochester High as rivals rise around her. But in her fight to stay on top, will Farrah take things too far?

Why it’s worth watching: First impressions after reading the synopsis may be that this is your typical high school drama, but Youth & Consequences does just fine standing out from other similar shows.

The trailer for Youth & Consequences appears intense, but the comedy-drama does have some fun moments, as well. Eight episodes are available now on YouTube Premium, each consisting of approximately 30 minutes. It’s a captivating and very well-done series (for being one of the first at YouTube) that definitely deserved more attention and love when it first premiered. Unfortunately for fans, Youth & Consequences will not be returning for a second season. The web-series also stars Sean Grandillo, Katie Sarife, and Piper Curda.

49. Future Man

Where to stream: Hulu

Number of seasons: 2 (a third and final season is expected soon)

Synopsis: Future Man, produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, centers on a janitor named Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson) who is chosen to help save the world after he becomes the first person to complete the video game Biotic Wars.

Why it’s worth watching: There’s plenty to love about this Hulu original! For starters, Future Man is a mixed bag of genres. There’s truly something for every fan here. Sci-fi is the main one along with action and adventure, but plenty of comedy to keep the series light.

Future Man also stars Eliza Coupe, Derek Wilson, and Ed Begley, Jr. There’s no official date for the Season 3 premiere, but the first two seasons dropped on Hulu during the winter (Season 1 in November and Season 2 in January), so we’re predicting a release date around these same dates.
