The book's a little bit slow, I'm only halfway through it, but this looks really promising.

I wish I had Hulu to watch this. It looks so good and the book is one of my all time faves. I nearly lost it when I heard it was being made into a series.

I really enjoyed those three episodes. Loved everything abt it, great acting, interesting characters. I didn't feel bored at all. Perched to see how Offred and Ofglen will sort out their mess.

well it seems to have the best ranking on metacritic for a new show in 15 years. Queen Moss and Queen Atwood the power.

Does no one else find it odd how patriarchy is the logic of a system yet they hardly give any male characters significant screen-time? I guess the system is set up in a way where women are too occupied with their own alliances and enmities and males aren't necessarily needed.

I didn't read the novel but i imagine they will interfere later during the season beginning with Commander Waterford's business
