Five Great Classic TV Shows On Hulu
From "Cheers" to "St. Elsewhere," there are dozens of great classic tv shows on Hulu. Let's take a look back at some of our favorites!
Of all the streaming services, Hulu probably has the best selection of new and classic series. This is because Hulu was initially built as a way to put television shows online at the dawn of the streaming age.
For definition’s sake, we are looking at TV shows over 30 years old. Which, unfortunately, means we might delve a bit into the 90s.
From classic comedy to the first police procedurals, here are the five best classic tv shows on Hulu.
I’m not sure any sitcoms stand the test of time as well as “Cheers” does. The show has a timeless quality to it , and the jokes and banter make it one of the more original television shows ever made. I don’t think you could make a sitcom like this anymore, especially with the modern audience’s lack of attention spans.

Perhaps the most watched television show of all time, “M*A*S*H” combined the horrors of war with a dark comedy that would be difficult to replicate today properly.

If you ask my dad, a connoisseur of police procedurals, this one is probably the best. “NYPD Blue” broke the mold on cop shows by diving into the detectives’ private lives and showing a grittier side of crime than what was previously allowed on TV.

Regardless of how it ended, “St. Elsewhere” was the genesis of the modern medical procedural show. It also started the careers of many famous actors, including Denzel Washington.
