Fans are praising a new Hulu series set in a family-run restaurant, with many former hospitality workers saying it gives them ‘flashbacks’.
Comedy-drama series The Bear stars Jeremy Allen White as fine dining chef Carmen - known as Carmy - who has to return to work in his family's Italian beef sandwich restaurant, The Original Beef of Chicagoland.
Alongside White, The Bear stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach. Ayo Edebiri and even has a guest appearance from Jon Bernthal. You can check out the trailer here:
The show's eight-episode season dropped last month and viewers have already binged their way through, giving it rave reviews.
Posting on Twitter, one fan said: “I cannot believe that no one’s talking about The Bear on Hulu. The show perfectly captures the chaos of a kitchen. Truly amazing from beginning to end.”
Another wrote: “Need a new show? I highly recommend The Bear on Hulu. A wild anxiety ridden look at the Chicago restaurant scene. It’s chaotic and aggressive fun that has a strong heart that sneaks up on you. Jeremy Allen White is terrific in a gut wrenching performance. Great stuff.”
A third said simply: “The Bear on Hulu is the best show on television right now, I am not lying.”
Others said the show is so true to life that it’s reminding them of their own time spent working in kitchens.
“If you’ve worked in a kitchen before, check out The Bear on Hulu,” wrote one former kitchen-worker. “It’s pure chaos, fast-paced, and will take you right back to getting yelled at. Anyone else get flashbacks?”
And someone else said: “Episode 7 of The Bear on Hulu is the most realistic depiction of running a restaurant.”
While another praised: “The Bear on Hulu is a masterpiece, it’s definitely one of the most realistic depictions of the restaurant industry I’ve ever seen & the details are impeccable.”
As well as being widely complimented on social media, The Bear has an unbeatable 100 percent on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, alongside a very impressive 95 percent audience score.
On IMDB the show fares almost equally as well, with a solid 8.5 score, with episode seven getting a near-perfect 9.6 out of ten.
The Bear is available to watch on Hulu for those in the US - as yet, the show does not have a UK release date.
