Description

The drama series, based on the award-winning, best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids -- where anyone could be a spy for Gilead -- all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

    Its a little grim, but excellent watching. A cautionary tale on whatmight happen if women's rights keep being eroded by the far-right and the puritans.

    I watched it on Hulu till I couldnt take it anymore. Fine acting and production quality, but the message was so obivously fictional propaganda that I had to stop watching. As a SyFy story it might fly, but to relate it to any real fear or possible reality is simply fear and hate mongering. Some Folks will believe anything, in fact, too many will - thanks to the media's take on things. I simply say, no thanks.
  • A great adaptation!

    Schindler's List and Apolocypse Now are comedies compared to this _blank_. If you're expriencing excessive enjoyment, please watch this _censored_ series for temperance.

    This is extremely sexist against men, has a hideously biased political agenda, and spits upon Christianity every chance it can. How about trying to spread love in a hateful society instead of this garbage. Thanks a lot ❤️

    Yes it is very well done. Yes the acting is fine. Yes the cinematography is great and the writer was superb. No it’s not fun. Not easy viewing. Sorry but it’s so intense and depressing that I had to watch every episode in bits and pieces. Be warned. This is definitely different and maybe not your choice for an evening of light entertainment. A really rough go. Especially considering our new political climate.
  • Boring

    Slow and boring drama about what Im not even sure of. All I could tell you is that the maids are forced into having sex with the men who employ them while the kinky wife watches. Then bare children. Great T.V. I tell you!
  • Absolute Twaddle

    Where tiny minds create crises that do not exist. Hate on silly haters, you will not only steal the joy from others with your lies you will perpetuate sick minds.
  • Horrible show

    It’s boring and unrealistic unless you’re a liberal who believes the lies that group of people keep telling you.

    Warning: This show is not for the weak of stomach. Literally, I felt ill during points of the show due to some pretty gruesome content but I couldn't stop watching as a supporter of the protagonists. While the concept is extreme, the content is pretty onpoint with current trends and makes the viewer pay attention to the relevancy of present voice, moral actions and environmental wellfair. Five stars for that!

    Whether or not you buy its message, you gotta admit it's very well done. Yes, like most single-issue sci-fi the story is preposterously heavy-handed. But it looks great, it's intelligently written and directed, and the cast is very good. Elisabeth Moss is an expert at showing her character's thoughts and feelings in the slightest facial tics -- though I could do with fewer of the extreme Easter Island close-ups as she's doing that. (And I wish she wasn't a freaking Scientologist. Yeah, I know she was raised in it. I was raised Catholic, but I grew up.) Yvone Strahovski is riveting as the insanely frustrated wife; Joseph Fiennes is ultra-slimy as the creepy husband; and most everyone else does very well. It's grimly one-note in ways that can make it hard to stick with at times, but it wraps up the season pretty triumphantly. And kudos for the excellent timing of coming out just as the real America is going cuckoo in mildly similar and sinister ways. As exaggerated as the story is, it actually makes more sense now than when Atwood's novel originally appeared.
