Highly Suspect Reviews: The Handmaid’s Tale – Season 1

Some are calling it the most terrifying new show on television, some the most beautiful, all are calling it the saddest: it’s the first season of Hulu’s new adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s masterful dystopian sci-fi classic, The Handmaid’s Tale. Elizabeth Moss plays Offred, one of many Handmaidens who must live in this new theocratic American society as the servant of a rich family, specifically there to bear the child of the rich husband (Joseph Fiennes). Child birth rates are plummeting and women have had their citizenship revoked, if not their humanity. Even the mother of the house (Yvonne Strahovski), who clearly despises Offred for doing what she’s there to do, is obedient to the new order. Is there any escape? Are we 5 minutes away from this world ourselves? Chris, Sarah, Scott, and Rebecca have a long, spoiler-filled, discussion about the show.
