The performances are chilling and brilliant at every level. Moss has never done better work, but what’s especially impressive here is that she manages to do the seemingly impossible: create Offred and her previous identity as June as different women at first.
Painfully timely. It's also absolutely enraging, and completely riveting. ... The Handmaid's Tale isn't just the best original show Hulu has ever done. It's one of the most impressive series of the year.
Binged this over the last week, to catch up to C4. Really enjoying this but slightly concerned that now the book's been covered (per my understanding not read the book), it could resort into filler territory as the network just wants to keep it going rather than tell a compelling story.
I wish there was more on how society got to this place. There are a few flashbacks, but how about a few episodes that concentrate on the background to bring the viewers up to date? Not enjoying series 2 as much as 1.
