Handmaids Tale

Season 4 of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Delayed to 2021

I love The Handmaid’s Tale, but if we’re being honest, I have no desire to watch it anytime soon. I feel like we’re living a nightmare and right now that’s more than enough to deal with. Hulu did release the…

10 TV Moments That Broke Our Hearts in 2018

2018 is solidly in the rearview mirror. Honestly, hallelujah! Now, from the safety of 2019, we can look back at those TV moments from 2018 that grabbed hold of our feels and cruelly twisted them until they bled. Beware of…

Our favorite TV Shows of 2018

There’s a lot of good TV out there. No, really, a hell of a lot of good TV, trust me, someone who just had to spiral her way into somehow narrowing this list down. But narrow it I have, with…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×12 Review: Out of Eden

On the season’s penultimate episode, The Handmaid’s Tale 2×12 “Postpartum,” the narrative’s attention expands beyond June and Holly to include Eden, Emily, and Nick. It is a wise set-up as it provides some relief from the emotional hyper-focus on our…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×11 Review: I Tell, Therefore You Are

The Handmaid’s Tale 2×11 “Holly” is a cohesive story that can function as a stand-alone film. The tale of our hero June’s journey is an Emmy-worthy AND Oscar-worthy hour of television. I continue to be awestruck, astonished, and appalled by…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×10 Review: Families Belong Together

I have to be honest, I have been avoiding this review. The parallels between the real world and the dystopian nightmare on The Handmaid’s Tale are often uncanny. But, on The Handmaid’s Tale 2×10 “The Last Ceremony,” the content with Hannah…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×08 and 2×09 Review: Women Making it Work

The Handmaid’s Tale has always been about women. But Season 1 focuses almost entirely on the control men have over women. It shows us the extent and scope of the depravity visited on the bodies of women by Gilead’s oppressive…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×07 Review: A Requiem

After each episode of The Handmaid’s Tale, I am sure that the stunning visual and musical imagery, poetry in the form of a television episode, cannot be topped. Then I watch the next episode. The Handmaid’s Tale 2×07 “After” once…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Review 2×06: ‘First Blood’ Blows Us All Away

The Handmaid’s Tale 2×06 “First Blood” balances the morose and horrifying world of Gilead with the Waterford household’s flirty rebellion to create the strongest character-focused episode of the season. The examination of power and family is breathtaking as always. The…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×05 Review: Bloodbath

Hope – a tiny, whispered seedling of hope – emerges from The Handmaid’s Tale 2×05 “Seeds,” in its final breaths. The episode is another stunning depiction of the impacts of oppression under a repressive theocratic regime. “Seeds,” like “Other Women,”…

The Handmaid’s Tale 2×04 Review: My Bad

Just when I think I have learned the outer bounds of torture, The Handmaid’s Tale 2×04 “Other Women” steps in to remind me that when it comes to suffering, the sky is the limit. “Other Women” zooms in on June’s,…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×03 Review: Life is a Real Mother

The Handmaid’s Tale 2×03 “Baggage” sprints forward after the stretching episodes, “June” and “Unwomen.” The plot quickens, as do the stakes for June’s decisions, as does June’s belly. Unsurprisingly, the visual imagery, acting, and cinematography are as strong and impeccable as…

Hulu Renews ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ for Season 3: Praise Be!

Just one week after Hulu released the first two episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2, the streaming network ordered a third season for the award-winning series. Season 2 extends beyond the material covered in the book The Handmaid’s Tale,…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 2×01 Review: I Hate This Day

June Osborne is free. The final expression of the first episode of Season 2, forcefully exhaled by our protagonist survivor is true and not. She claims an essential piece of freedom: freedom to and from her body. It is one…

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2: Welcome to the Burn Down

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 1 Review: An Outstanding First Season Filled With Emmy Worthy Performances

During televisions long history there have been several shows that have been so timely it’s scary. All in the Family discussed politics in the 1970s, Homeland deals with our greatest fears with terrorism, but there is something eerily timely about The Handmaid’s Tale and the conversation…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season Finale Review: ‘Night’

After a season of praying on our every fear, The Handmaid’s Tale comes to a close in a harrowing hour that shows off its cast and leads us into season two. In just ten episodes, this show has solidified itself amongst…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 1×09 Review: ‘The Bridge’

After two rather slow episodes for The Handmaid’s Tale, the hit Hulu drama comes roaring back with “The Bridge.” It’s an episode that utilizes every strength in the shows arsenal. From Moss and Wiley scenes to an Emmy Award worthy performance…

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ 1×08 Review: “Jezebels”

After a week absent of any present day Offred, The Handmaid’s Tale picks up right where it last left Offred: in bed with Nick. Similar to “The Other Side,” this episode of The Handmaid’s Tale falls flat as compared to the other…
