The feeling that we’ve transported to the early days of Gilead has me on the fence about what used to be one of my favorite shows. My only hope is that they tear the whole thing down.
I’d enjoy that.
But otherwise, it’s pretty intense, and given everything happening now, including the dehumanization of women in several states, it’s a tough watch.
I’ll probably watch it.
But I’ll have to brace myself.
What we need now is hope, even if it seems out of step with reality, even if hope feels pointless. Because once you settle in to it all being pointless, then, well, it is.
Here’s hoping for a happy ending.

I’ve never read or watched The Handmaid’s Tale, but I hear only good things about it. Maybe I should.

It’s pretty chilling in both formats! If you don’t like spoilers in your TV, I’d watch the show, and reverse if it’s a bigger problem for books.
What’s really scary is how some of the things happening here are EVEN WORSE than the show. Who would have thought that possible?
It’s intense, though, so prepare yourself.
