How to watch
Reminding us that there’s so much more to American sketch comedy than Saturday Night Live, Sherman’s Showcase transports us into a bizarre variety show run by an egomaniacal host, where all the laws of space and time seem to be broken. It’s all ultimately very silly, but the jokes that this mock-variety series pulls out of nowhere are so funny because of how unexpected they are—lampooning every niche of the entertainment industry with pure confidence in every line. But even if you don’t get the humor here, Sherman’s Showcase remains a delight to watch just because of the imagination poured into the performances. There are dancers aplenty and novelty songs done in countless styles that stand strong on their own as great music.
Hulu is an on-demand service that is currently only available in US territories. You can get access to Hulu’s on-demand content library for $7.99 a month with commercials, and $14.99 without. There’s also an option to pay for an annual subscription starting at $79.99.
You can buy nearly everything on Amazon, including movies and TV shows. Amazon’s video storefront (not to be confused with its on-demand streaming service Amazon Prime) allows you to either rent or buy thousands of titles, including new releases, blockbuster hits, niche indies, and international gems.
You’ll have to sign in using your Amazon account to start renting or purchasing, and Amazon allows you to redeem gift cards, promo codes, and points if you have them upon checkout. Like most video stores, Amazon gives you 30 days to start watching a rental and 48 hours to finish it, while unlimited access is granted to purchased titles. Lastly, you should know that a rented title is only viewable on one device, so sharing options will be limited.
