Netflix isn't the only steaming service offering original TV (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black). Hulu has released a 4-part fictional drama series called Run, about life in working class London. I watched the first episode. It's a bleak but well-presented story about a single mother named Carol, who must deal with the aftermath of a tragedy involving her two teenage sons. The other episodes are about different characters who are are all somehow connected.
