Review updated:

Hulu wrongfully removed an episode of the iconic show the Golden Girls. The episode was called "Mixed Blessings, " episode 23 in season 3 of the sitcom that aired in 1988. Hulu's reason for the removal of this episode was because in one scene Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and Rose (Betty White) are testing out a new mud face treatment when Dorothy's son Michael's Girlfriend and her mother show up both of them are black. So Hulu decided to remove this episode over one little scene, when in fact the whole episode was trying to show a very important message about interracial marriages. The whole episode was about Michael (Scott Jacoby), the son of Dorothy (Beatrice Author), plans to wed a much older Black woman, Lorraine (Rosalind Cash). Dorothy is critical of their age difference and Lorraine's family disapproves of their daughter marrying a white man, so the two families attempt to stop the marriage in the end they put aside there differences and let Michael and Lorraine get married. Hulu did not even think about what they were doing when they decided to remove this episode over one little part that was not even a big deal and Hulu should Issue a full apologue for the removal of the episode and put it back on the website and app.

    I lived with the freezing, etc, but today they went over the line. I live outside of cleveland, and I turned on to watch the browns eagles game. i'm watching the fox pregame show, it hits 1:00, they never switch to the local feed. I call someone I know with antenna tv, yep, it's on the local station, it's just hulu that never switched to the local feed. I tried to find a customer service number for them, good luck, took 15 minutes and detective skills, only to be told 30-40 minute wait. found a 'chat' feature. about 1:30 I got someone, they realized what they did, and switched the feed. halfway through the 2nd quarter, yeah, the group of people I had over to watch had already left to go watch at a bar. but everything ended well... they gave me three free days to compensate me for the problem. thanks a lot. cancel.
