Nutshell: Hulu, Zoe Kravitz is a god, 10 episodes, 1 season, 26 minutes, music lovers will really love this, remake of a late 90’s movie but modernized and way better than original, I would watch this again and again
CB Rating: 9.6
Not to make this about me, but I just turned 36 years old. Why is this relevant to an article about Hulu’s High Fidelity? I grew up in the 90’s and early 2000’s which makes me the prime of the prime, smack in the center, of John Cusack’s former fame. If you’re still asking yourself why John Cusack is even coming up in a conversation about a show starring Zoe Kravitz* (everytime we mention her name it must be said with the utmost deference- we will discuss this below), then you my friend should do yourself a favor and catch High Fidelity, the movie starring our former darling.
But before you do that, watch this show. The movie is great, but the show managed to take the plot of the movie and just completely make it it’s own. The movie is irrelevant, about as irrelevant as John Cusack is now (ouch burn, sorry Cusak). This show was pretty close to perfect for me.
Zoe Kravitz, is a stand out star. Bear with me, I am going to ramble about Zoe Kravitz for a hot second. How is there a human being walking around that is this perfect. She manages to be even more beautiful than her mother, Lisa Bonnett, laced with her dad’s sexy cool stare and demeanor. She’s dripping in style and swag. This girl is wearing baggy jeans, a white tee, a green sweater vest and boots in the promo of the show and she looks OUTRAGEOUS! If I wore that exact outfit and posed for a picture, people would think I was Chandler Bing. RANT OVER
Side Note Idea: if there is an impending apocalypse the world should agree we save Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonnett and make them responsible for repopulating the earth.
Zoe can also just act. The whole cast was just really amazing. The story from start to finish brings you in. Each character plays a part. The classic story of heartbreak with unexpected twists keeps you invested. There are 10 episodes that are each around 26 minutes. A quick binge for some, and not an overwhelming amount for newbie bingers.
I would highly suggest watching this show. If you don’t have Hulu (it is about that time to commit) but if you don’t want to they are offering a free month trial. That is enough time to watch this show and The Handmaid’s Tale for all those who have been sleeping on that (inexcusable).
Get to it! I’m planning on watching it again, so maybe we do it together!
