… I started binge-watching The Handmaid’s Tale. And wow. I am currently on season 2, episode 11—such a rollercoaster show. Absurd. Completely logic and not too. It makes me angry, leaves me incredulous. I am rooting for a couple of characters and have strong feelings about others.
I have been recommended the show on several occasions (on Amazon Prime), but I was not interested. I didn’t know what this show was about and was not interested in historical shows. See how much I didn’t know. When I started the series, I also downloaded the book by Margret Atwood. I didn’t read it yet.
I am just so engrossed in the show. And as an added bonus, it has Rory from the Gilmore Girls. (Alexis Bledel)
It has been a long while since a TV show has captured me in this way.
