Best new streaming TV shows this week
The Legend of Vox Machina Season 1 (Amazon Prime Video)
Critical Role is a very popular live streaming series in which various professional voice actors play elaborate and customized Dungeons and Dragons fantasy campaigns. The series became so popular that the actors decided to turn their first campaign into an animated TV show for adults. They launched a Kickstarter project to fund it in 2019 and ended up with over $11 million sent in from their fans.

Based on the trailer, it appears that the money laundering Byrde family is becoming deeply involved with both the FBI and the Mexican drug cartel, in a perhaps vain attempt to walk away from their criminal life, free of all their obligations. At the same time, they also have to deal with their former employee Ruth and her family and friends, who want to create their own drug empire.
How I Met Your Dad Season 1 (Hulu)
One of the most acclaimed sitcoms of the past 20 years, How I Met Your Mother, finally has its sequel series as Hulu exclusive. Like the original, this series is set to be booked sometime in the near future as an older version of the main character explains to her son how she met his father.
The rest of the show has that younger version, played by Hillary Duff, living in 2022, where she can’t find a man good enough for her. She gets support from her group of friends in New York City. So how does this series tie in with the original? You can find out now.
Not only does Hulu offer thousands of movies and TV shows to stream, it also has original shows and movies like The Handmaid’s Tale. You can upgrade to Hulu Plus Live TV to get live channels, including your local stations.

Servant Season 3 (Apple TV Plus)
