My sister goes to school in Cambridge and it's a pretty small city. I'm surprised she hasn't run into them filming yet. We do recognize a lot of the locations though.

I just finished the show. I really liked it but as a reproductive biologist/scientist who has worked for years in infertility, I do have issues about how the story handles the lack of fertile women. Really holding the few women that are fertile as basically sexual slaves is really not an effective way to boost the population. I understand the story is not really about that but it feels so counterproductive to me- they don't even check the fertility of the men that are trying to get these women pregnant and they only have sex with them one day a month without checking for ovulation? The world is doomed.

That's kind of why I like the show, how there is a world where there are very little fertile women and they rely on handmaids to give birth. It's very horrendous and surreal to think about a scenario like this. They are basically sex slaves. This show is the worst case scenario about what happens when women are stripped off their rights & freedom and are controlled by commanders. It's such an empowering show for me that all I want in the end is for all of these women to succeed. There has to be a light in the end of the tunnel eventually.

New trailer!

Yeah I used to go to school/work in the downtown core where they film a bunch of tv/movies but not anymore so I'm not as close as I want to be.

I think in this case religion and fear sort of makes the Commanders ignore some of the science. I think it's insinuated that it's probably the men that are mostly infertile?

And thanks for the trailer Lindsay! It's a good day to release one.
