This is one messed up TV show; about a dystopian America ruled by a misogynistic government.
Elizabeth Moss’ performance though was pretty good.
While I don’t condone the mistreatment of women in the series, I do praise it for popularity nonetheless.
I wonder what the conclusion of the show will be like?
Every now and then a production comes along that such an absolute gem, it has you lost for words.
A Handmaids Tale, is based on the novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood . I have not yet read the book but if this series is anything to go by, it will, I’m sure, make its way into my collection very soon.
On the surface the premise behind the series seems novel. Yet when you consider the fate of women in contemporary and historic theocratic societies, its not so far fetched. Indeed, what Atwood has rather cleverly done, is transplant aspects of life in theocratic societies, most notably Medieval Europe and Puritan colonial America, into a futuristic setting using civil war as a vehicle. A biological imperative is introduced too, in the form of pollution induced human sterility. Fertile women in Gilead (formerly the USA) are reduced to human incubators, their only imperative to produce children.
On face value, this might seem to be a story about the subjugation and commoditization of women. Indeed, it is that. Yet, what this series is ultimately about is the hypocrisy of intolerance. Not just women but any individual or group, who diverge from the rigid religious script, meet a grim fate. Meanwhile, those controlling the dialogue, are more or less free to make and break their own rules, as they see fit. Even those who do follow the societal script, often do so for reasons that are in opposition to those they claim to uphold.
For my money everything about this series is superb. Elizabeth Moss is a wonderful, off beat choice, for Offred the handmaid to a powerful commander, who is directly responsible for hers and others suffering. Joseph Fiennes, is capable in the role of the superficially charming but emotionally empty commander.
In short, for me, an utterly engrossing, thoughtful and engaging series. Ten out of ten from me.
Brilliantly written and amazing acting. TV shows like this show a dystopian view of society which seems unrealistic, like it could never happen to us. What is happening during covid times shows exactly how easy it is for a governent to become totalitarian, authoritarian and down right dangerous to our rights and freedoms. We should take a show like this to heart and never let it happen today. This show is scary and full of horrors.
I gave season 1 high marks for creative writing; decent acting. But, after 3 seasons of it being bludgeoned into my dumb brain of the same time wasting, low cost production, and repetitive filler – I am starting to awaken, Oh Lord!
25+% of screen time consists of prolonged (I mean really long.) close up filler shots of June’s limited few facial expressions (disgust, anger, smirk, blank) – OK, duh!, I get it. Just a really low budget filler.
Another 70% is the same/similar just talking either while walking or in the same rooms.
5% consists of a few low cost surprise scenes, i.e. Some clothing in a hangman’s noose (about as scary as a Saturday morning cartoon); June shoots someone when she really didn’t need to; important scene w/plane being pulled into hanger, but essentially nothing before.
Repeated dialogue/lines easy to remember so acting skills are not a requirement, e.g. “Praise be.”, “Blessed be the fruit.”, “Under His eye.”, “Go in grace.”, “Blessed day.”, “God bless our labors.”, “Through work we’re cleansed.”, “God is our refuge and strength.”, “Show me Thy mercy, or Lord.”, “May He and His goodness bless us with miracles for we are weary and weak of faith.”, “To Him be the glory.”, “May His healing light shine on you.”, “God guide your steps.” Plot definer, “For the husband is the head of the wife.”, “…parents to raise their children in the fear of the Lord.”, “The miracles God allows these doctors to perform.”
