THE HAND­MAID’S TALE

SBS, 8.35pm

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - Programs -

It’s great that SBS is fast- track­ing The Hand­maid’s Tale, hours af­ter its US premiere. But there’s also a big down­side: no set­tling in for a night of binge- watch­ing the bleak but ad­dic­tive postapoc­a­lyp­tic se­ries. Star Elisabeth Moss ( pic­tured) is ut­terly com­pelling as hand­maid Of­fred, who re­fuses to give in to a life of servi­tude and tor­ture. It’s hard to imag­ine how her quest for free­dom and her daugh­ter will pan out. If you’re itch­ing to know more, but don’t want any spoil­ers, stop read­ing now. In “Seeds”, a Gilead cer­e­mony dis­rupts Of­fred’s re­la­tion­ship with Nick ( Max Minghella), threat­en­ing to send her into a down­ward spi­ral.
