On The Handmade's Tale

I really enjoyed the Hulu series and by that I mean it appropriately freaked me out. Far more than the book did. Guess seeing and hearing is implicitly  more visceral than reading...in most cases anyway. But mostly because it is suddenly so much more believable. The show probably would have failed the reasonability test a year ago. But now that we have unfortunately horribly regressed on women's issues, it doesn't seem unfathomable anymore. If anything, the show's real fear may be in convincing us that it is not only very possible but almost imminent. 

Margaret Atwood would actually approve of the show - given that one of her drivers for the novel was that everything she wrote about was already happening somewhere in America.
