The Best of What’s New to Hulu January 2018: Period Dramas & Romance

The Best of What’s New to Hulu January 2018: Period Dramas & Romance


We’ve finally reached the New Year! And with January now here, Hulu has some great period dramas and romances coming your way. From the season 11 premiere of The X-Files (yes…I call it a romance because Scully and Mulder ARE romantic) to old favorites like The Phantom of the Opera and A League of Their Own, there’s a lot to choose from this January.

THE SILVER STAR 

Next to certain titles, you’ll find a silver star. This means that the Silver Petticoat Review Editors have seen and recommend these choices. The silver star represents our personal favorites.

From the guilty pleasures to the award-winners, these are the ones we might recommend from one friend to another. That’s not to say that some of these other titles aren’t also fabulous just that these are the ones we’ve seen and love and could watch more than once!

ORGANIZATION

I organized the list by separating period dramas and romance (though some of the period dramas are also romantic) to make it easier to find what you’re looking for! And while some of the films and shows are not technically “romances,”  I included them anyway because they include a lot of romance with popular couples.

Enjoy…We’ve selected the best of what’s new for your viewing pleasure on Hulu January 2018! (I added links to each title so you can learn what each film or show is about.)
