    A handmaid's tale?

    Advertisements
    Is anyone else watching this? I'm two or three episodes in. Does it get better for her?

    THIS SHOW OMG.

    Did you know that Margaret Atwood wrote the events that happen because they have all happened somewhere in the world for real?

    This article highlights the first 3 episodes and what real events parallel the show (they are missing some key events, especially since the book was written in the early 80s but it's still a useful list)

    Having read the book...honestly I still don't know. The book's quite ambiguous in some ways.

    God knows what the show might choose to change.

    I watched the first two episodes and wasn't really that impressed, it was a little too uncomfortable for me. I'm planning to give it another try when all the episodes are out but I'm not sure I can stomach it. It might be something I'm better off reading.

    I've read the book. It's really short.

    Brandon and I also watched the first two episodes and were like eh, no thanks. We talked about watching the whole series after it's all released, but who knows. He's so busy with his girlfriend, he can barely fit me in.

    He literally does not ever care. I get uncomfortable, but nothing bothers him. It's so strange

    I LOVE this show. OMG.

    I am trying to hold off on reading the book until after the series is done.
