    The Handmaid's Tale

    The Handmaid's Tale is an American dystopian drama web television series created by Bruce Miller, based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood. The plot features a dystopian future following a Second American Civil War wherein a totalitarian society subjects fertile women, called "Handmaids", into child-bearing servitude.

    This series is set in Gilead, a totalitarian society in what used to be part of the United States. Gilead is ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state, and is faced with environmental disasters and a plummeting birth rate. In a desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude. One of these women, Offred, is determined to survive the terrifying world she lives in, and find the daughter that was taken from her.

    The Handmaid’s Tale will return for its third season on June 5

    I freaking love it lmao. It's just an incredibly captivating and intriguing series. The acting is impeccable, and the dynamics between the characters are literally goose-bump extravaganza.

    I love this series, I read the book after Season 2 (which answered a lot of questions about the wacky nature of Season 2).

    I am currently rewatching Season 2 before starting the new stuff. I do feel that Season 2 is a little wacky, and abandons ideas set-up in Season 1. They regularly keep the handmaids separate for different tasks, they don't salvage with their family, and they don't hang people on the wall together either. I thought it was strange they watched the execution of Eden and Isaac all together. Then again maybe other things are happening at a national level that would cause a shift. Anyone else notice this?

    I'm way into the series, they can be wacky and I'm still down.
