It was a little over a month ago that I shared the teaser trailer for the Marvel Television Hulu Original series “Runaways” and since a lot of posts have gone by since then, you can check out that trailer summary by clicking on THIS LINK. Today that series makes its streaming debut on the Hulu service.
Premise: Six teenagers from different backgrounds unite against a common enemy — their criminal parents, collectively known as the Pride.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: In the post for the trailer, I mentioned how I felt that the show did look interesting but for me it ends there because I cannot add another subscription service to my monthly media stuff. I’ve got a whopping Spectrum bill which covers cable, Internet and phone (yes I still have a landline believe it or not) and then there is a Netflix account. I tried Hulu when I had the give it a try month and hated the inclusion of commercials. If I am paying a premium price, don’t play ads for me during the show and also prevent me from fast-forwarding. I’m thinking that this series will air once each week like the CBS All Access is doing with the new “Star Trek: Discovery” series but I’m not on that service either. Looks like I need some friends with each of these accounts so I can “drop by” with some pizza and beers to binge a little bit of programming. What about you readers? Do you have Hulu and will you be watching this one? Let me know down in the comments below.
