UK Sky Original comedy series“Bloods” premieres exclusively on Hulu Thursday, December 9.

Synopsis: Samson Kayo (“Timewasters”) and Jane Horrocks (“Absolutely Fabulous”, “LITTLE VOICE”) star in this six-part comedy series as paramedic partners in the South London ambulance service. When tough-acting loner Maleek is paired with over-friendly divorcee Wendy, their partnership looks dead on arrival. But before long they’re acting as each other’s life support. An ensemble comedy, set within the fast-paced, never-ending rush of 999 call outs, “Bloods” also stars Adrian Scarborough (“Crashing”, “The Accident”), Lucy Punch (“A Series of Unfortunate Events”) and Julian Barratt (“Sally4Ever”, “Flowers”).

This show is great and I love the different characters and their personalities. The two main characters are so opposite and it makes the show so funny. The only thing I don’t like is some of the blood or injury scenes when they go on their calls, but I guess are necessary to make it a  bit more realistic. 


Episode 1: Partners
Spiky South London boy Maleek is not impressed by new partner Wendy, a middle-aged divorcee who's just moved to the capital. Pining for his old partner Kevin, he struggles to guide her through the mean streets. Team leader Jo tries to flirt with grieving widower Lawrence but is caught out by a major pile-up.

Episode 2: Air Ambulance
Maleek reveals his dream of a job in the helicopter service, after meeting arrogant air ambulance paramedic Phil. Wendy pushes Maleek to use this new connection but ends up making an unwanted connection of her own. Hot-headed newbie Kareshma is paired with cautious veteran Gary for her first shift. Jo uses self-defence training to get Lawrence's attention.

Episode 3: Daycare

Kareshma tries to break up Darrell and Darryl to get a new partner.

Episode 4: Bike Patrol
After their screw-up with the kid, Maleek is punished with pushbike duty, while Wendy has to work under Jo's observation.

Gary discovers Kareshma has a twin sister working in A&E who's even more ruthless than her.
