Parenting is stressful enough. Watching the new show about it, “Breeders,” shouldn’t be hard too. Fortunately, those without cable have a few good options for watching “Breeders” – either with popular streaming service Hulu or by subscribing to a service with a package of channels that includes FX. You can do either while you are changing a diaper. The first 10-episode season premiers March 2.
“Breeders” has plenty going for it besides convenience. It stars Martin Freeman of “The Hobbit” films and “Sherlock” and Daisy Haggard of “Doctor Who” and “Black Mirror” as parents of two little kids. Casting Haggard and Freeman makes the characters not only relatable but also gives them British accents – and as everyone knows, everything is more charming in a British accent. That includes the f-bomb, which is used plentifully in this show.
It’s a bit of a harsh look on parenting but one that will be familiar to those who have had the real-life experience of trying to hold small shreds of sanity together while sleep-deprived. In the trailer, Freeman asks how he can be willing to die for his children but also be so angry that he’d almost kill them. Watching him and Haggard navigate that world of the highest highs and some pretty low lows should prove to be a journey many of us can find familiar.
FX on Hulu
The cheapest way to watch “Breeders” is to subscribe to Hulu for $5.99/month. The show is part of FX on Hulu, a branded hub of FX shows that is part of the Hulu streaming library.
