What TV Shows Are You Into Now?

Recommended Posts

Along with the trailer Joe posted.  It is sort of a dystopian future where fertility around the world is seriously declining.  There's a hostile takeover in the US.  Fertile women are forced to serve these masters of the new regime, called handmaids.  Their only purpose is to have babies for the top families.  You basically let them rape you impregnate you they take the baby as their gift.  

These people used to be doctors, writers, whatever normal Americans.  But in this new society Men are the leaders.  Women support them raise the children, keep the households.  Some resist and get sent to the nuclear wastelands where its radioactive and eventually die.

 

Really good acting and writing.  It kind of shows what would happen if nutcase religious fanatics actually did take over.

Yeah the old one. I was interested in other things Neve Campbell had done and came across this one. Never seen it before but recognised all of them. It’s pretty good so far! And yes he is!

I'm concerned about fiction following reality, and what I mean by that is the idea that so many shows now focus on a dystopian reality of the future......are we headed for calamity inevitably? :unsure:   are we just afraid of change? :unsure:  there is a huge amount of attention focused on such "dystopian" realities

I was surprised at how much Serena's character added more dimensions this season instead of being just one dimensional like last season she was the bitch to hate. Now I don't think Aunt Lydia is dead, and I don't know if I agree with the beating she got, but considering she was partly responsible for Emily's circumsion I think Emily beat the right chick for her

Chile Aunt Lydia deserved every bit of that asswhooopin.  She chained those girls up, had them raped, maimed.  Took eyeballs, fingers, tounges. 

Serena is not fixta trick me into feeling sorry for her.  That triflin bitch saw what her low sperm count husband was doing long before June had to set her ass straight.  She allowed him to get that far gone.  She reminds me of Melania she's super complicit in the situation but then you want some sympathy?  Im supposed to feel bad you lost a finger after you allowed June to be raped and used like a broodmare?

Threatened her daughter to keep her "in line" and only allowed her back in the house to keep the breastmilk close?  Nah

 

Next season though what in the world.  Clearly a lot more bitches in Gilead are not happy than we thought.  The wives may be deterred a little by what happened to Serena....but the Marthas were ready to run that underground railroad child.  They know this shit is going off the rails

I kinda want to be able to get to a resolution, so that they dont carry this out forever, but according to the show's producers they intend to keep it going for a long time

they have so much to explain away, like Nick and the gun with the commander, and the baby is gone, and how did Emily get away.... where is June going to go now? I get it. June is not leaving without her daughter. BUT if you think about sympathy June did tell Emily to call the baby "Nicole" the name Serena gave her.

Yeah I read a few reviews too the Times review made that point also.

 

The dilemma they will have now story wise is focusing on June now after all this.  I mean really the ho had 3 opportunities to escape now.  I get the need to want to save Hannah.  But, there's ALOT that crossed lines that finale.

What in the world excuses can she have when she goes back?  All those Martha's that took risks to get her out with the baby and she rolls back in there?  Id be livid.  I mean yeah we can assume the baby gets out maybe but damn.

Maybe they can continue the redemption of Serena and she can back June up I guess.  But, what about baby daddy?  He was literally holding the commander hostage clearly helping the escape.  He got to run don't he?

Commander has gotten increasingly crazy too, that explosion must have fried his brain.  That scene in the kitchen with June where he was saying he still want to try again if she behave.  I mean it was just MENACING and the tension you could read it all over her face like she could barely contain that "go fuck yourself".

This shit deserves Emmy's the acting is just crazy good.  The lip trembles, the emotions you see just looking at their faces.
