Run, a new series about life in working class London


Carol, played by Olivia Colman, in Hulu's Run.

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.

  1. I think something very bad happened to the headline.

  2. Steaming? So it's transmitted through copper pipes?

  3. I came straight to the BBS link, and saw "Run, a new series on Hulu about boing boing"

    I had one of those moments of elation that is even more precious because it was crushed so fast.

  4. House of Cards is original? You might think that, I couldn't possibly comment.

  5. And, real life in the USA is just as grand as well...

    DENVER - Federal housing officials are condemning a decision by the
    Denver Housing Authority to evict the relatives of a mother killed by
    a rampaging gunman three days after her slaying, saying there is room
    for compassion in federal law.

    Housing and Urban Development spokesman Jerry Brown said Tuesday his
    agency hopes Denver will reconsider after the victim's mother and
    autistic son were locked out. The personal property of 47-year-old
    Sandra Roskilly was also seized and turned over to a public
    administrator.

    Doris Kessler, 70, had less than 6 hours notice to vacate that house
    on the 2200 block of South Irving, the scene of a standoff with Denver
    police on Friday.

    The Denver Housing Authority said it was forced to evict Kessler under
    federal law because Roskilly was the head of the household.

    Roskilly's brother Dennis Campbell says his sister barely scraped by,
    living in public housing on a fixed income.

    "She was disabled," Campbell said. "So I mean the house was
    everything."

    She lived in the house for almost 20 years, the last decade with her
    mother.
