So I’m only a few episodes into the British Hulu exclusive series “Spy” but so far I’m really enjoying it! It’s kind of a mash-up of Family Guy and Chuck. It’s about a lame father whose precocious and over educated son pushes him to make more of himself. He accidentally takes an exam to apply to the MI-5 and impresses the heck out of them. So reality isn’t really a part of the series but the protagonist is endearing and funny. And the kid is outstanding.
It is really out there in some spots, but I love that in Season 2 when they replaced a supporting character with a different actor they acknowledged it with a simple “What’s different about you?” “It’s the hair.” I laugh out loud every episode, which is rare.
There are two seasons and it looks like there’s a third on the way. And it’s free on Hulu so you can’t really beat that.
