The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu) #7: "Wake up America, morning's over."







+






Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States.
Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values'.
As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world.
In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

You're all welcome.

I swear, this is one of those shows where I just need to discuss the ep with anyone who watches the show. And also it's the only show I watch for the day because I get really depressed after and can't even try watching another show to distract me.

That's true. I remember having to watch stupid and funny YT videos afterwards just so I can sleep and not think about what happened in the ep. It's that depressing and sometimes I question myself why I bother with so much pain.

Holy crap.

^ Me too. This is the closest to real-life so it's pretty disturbing to me.

It is pretty dreary... but I think other shows are gorier/grosser sometimes.

And Ive watched a bunch of Netflix documentaries that are about REAL people. And real murder, torture, rape etc. Thats more disturbing to me because it actually happened.
