December isn’t just a time for carols, cookies, and cheer. The holiday season is also the time to stuff your eye-gullets with as much vanishing streaming content as possible. Hulu is purging a lot of titles next month, including its fleet of Star Trek films, the Bourne Identity franchise, and for some unacceptable reason, Rocky Horror Picture Show. (Are we ready to let go of Spooky Season so easily?) It’s also your last chance to catch Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet before having to shell out the four bucks for the rental. Is that more of a warning for this writer? Possibly, but we can’t confirm for certain. It’s also the month to catch some big favorites for a limited one-month window. The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, for example, heads to the platform on December 1 and expires at the very end of the month. The same goes for The Mummy: Tomb of The Dragon Emperor and a number of Tyler Perry titles.

But there’s still plenty of room for new shows and the arrival of some old favorites. The Hardy Boys sacrifice their holiday to solve some mysteries in its first season. According to Hulu’s official synopsis, Frank Hardy (Rohan Campbell), 16, and his brother Joe (Alexander Elliot), 12, are forced to move from the big city to their parent’s hometown of Bridgeport for the summer... Frank and Joe’s quiet summer quickly comes to a halt when they discover their dad, detective Fenton Hardy (James Tupper) has taken on a secret investigation. Realizing that their Dad may be onto something the boys take it upon themselves to start an investigation of their own, and suddenly everyone in town is a suspect.” Canadian comedy Letterkenny—a series that we recommend, if you haven’t checked it out alreadyreturns for its ninth season the day after Christmas. But if you’re looking for something to keep you busy until then, you can always fire up the 1997 classic The Fifth Element, which arrives at the beginning of the month. Check out the rest of the arrivals and departures below.
