'NY-LON,' British series starring Stephen Moyer and Rashida Jones, now on Hulu

Consider this a PopWatch PSA for True Blood fans going through withdrawal and anyone who’s wanted to see Rashida Jones in a starring role: NY-LON, the 2004 Channel 4 series starring Stephen Moyer and Jones as opposites who attract on her holiday in London and attempt a long distance relationship when she returns to New York, is now on Hulu. I powered through all seven episodes over the weekend. NY-LON has been shown on BBC America, but still isn’t available on DVD in the States, so enjoy it while you can, folks.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that Moyer plays a stockbroker, so he wears a suit a lot of the time, and that True Blood isn’t the first series in which he’s shown his bum. The characters lead complicated lives, so it’s a rollercoaster, not a cruise on the “It’s a Small World” ride. Also, if I were to ever share my apartment with someone, the person would need to be British. I always find flatmates more tolerable than American roommates on TV and in movies. Why?

Everyone should watch this series so they know how Stephen Moyer's hair SHOULD look. ;)

Andy I agree SM's hair is great in NY-LON but for TB I prefer S1 E1-3 hair. We will see what we get for S3.
Happy NY-LON is on Hulu.

Rita, make sure you watch the alternate ending for RESTRAINT, that's also very twisted and I think I like that ending better.
