The Dysfunctional Family Sitcom Hidden Gem You Can Binge On Hulu

Do you have a fondness for sitcoms like "Modern Family" or "The Santa Clarita Diet" — shows that portray loving families that are dysfunctional and yet would gladly walk across broken glass for one another? Looking to add another unique show to your binge watching list? Or maybe you just feel like you need an emotional break from the weight of the world? 

Look no further than this hidden streaming gem, which combines very serious situations with teenage romantic foibles, a fish out of water premise, a sarcastic sense of humor, flecks of family drama and soul-searching moments of tender character exploration which stick with you. 

Running two quick and totally bingeworthy seasons, this dramedy can be all yours for the watching if you have a Hulu subscription and a functioning remote. By now you're probably asking: What's the name of the dysfunctional family sitcom hidden gem you can find on Hulu?

Everything's Gonna be Okay will Make you Feel All Right

"Everything's Gonna Be Okay," which has been airing on Freeform since 2020 and wrapped its second season in June 2021, has found a happy streaming home on Hulu. The show has slowly been gathering steam as an underrated hidden gem among critics, and its unique combination of family drama and slightly-cockeyed sitcom cheer has been winning over audiences the world over during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The series focuses on Nicholas (Josh Thomas), an Australian expat who works in entomology and learns during a visit to his America-based biological father and two half-sisters that his father has a terminal illness and he wants Nicolas to raise the girls after he passes — which he does during the first episode. Seventeen-year-old Matilda (Kayla Cromer) and 14-year-old Genevieve (Maeve Press) try to adjust to Nicholas' presence while Nicholas tries to adjust to his new life in California with the help of his boyfriend, Alex (Adam Faison).

A sweet show whose plot twists come from the character's guts and souls, "Everything's Gonna Be Okay" will delight anyone who likes their shows heartfelt.
