Danger 5 is an Australian comedy action show, and it also may be the single greatest program to hit the airwaves.

It's in the style of a 60s spy show set during World War II.  It's got sexy gals, gun battles, zeppelins, bar room brawls, frequent suicide, talking dogs and every episode they try to kill Hitler.  Honestly, I'm not doing it justice.  

In the first episode Goebbels is stealing all of the worlds' monuments.  It's a surprise for Hitler's birthday.  What the hell is he going to do with all of those monuments?  I don't want to spoil it.

Right now it's only on Hulu in the States, so you'll have to sit through a dozen commercials to watch it on TV.  But it's worth it.

This is from the same folks as Italian Spider-Man  so that should give you some idea,  and if you like Danger 5 and haven't seen that you should check that out too.   D5 was also on Australian tv a while back,  think its over a year old now.

I had started to watch it on a friend's recommendation, but it didn't immediately pull me in so I abandoned it.  However, that's completely unfair of me as there are numerous shows I now love that started off the same way with me (Todd and the Book of Pure Evil, for example).  So I'm going to give it another go.

Finished watching the first (and so far only) season today.  I loved  it.

I love a good callback or repeated gag, and this show is full of them.  Plus the level of insanity just goes to Awesome Level 9000 without feeling unapproachable.

I can see gripes about the violence, which is intentionally humorously excessive and the blatant sexism, which is again intentional and meant to illustrate how ridiculous that was not so long ago.

Overall, really enjoyable.

So, anyone know if there will be a season 2? This aired in 2012, but it was started in 2011. It should be about time for them to announce another season, or something, assuming this was popular.

The only thing I heard was a wild rumor from a comment that they were writing more episodes, but couldn't find any links to confirm it.

Does Hulu work in the UK?  All the eps are on there in the US.

We're sorry,currently our video library can only be streamed from within the United States.For more information on Hulu's international availability,click here

and when you click on that link,it says its only available in Japan outside of the U.S  saywhat

While we have every intention to make Hulu's growing content lineup available worldwide in the future, we don't have a timetable or any news regarding expansion beyond Japan at this time.

Is Hulu a subscription based streaming service like Netflix?,because if so even if UK did have it i don't think i would want another on top of Netflix

Hulu Plus is subscription based (with annoying as hell ads).  You need that to watch stuff on a console or TV.  Vanilla Hulu will run on a computer for free.
