THE BINGEWATCHER’S TALE
Dear Empire, thank you for the heads up on Season 2 of The Handmaid’s Tale
(issue #207). When I started watching Season 1, I did so with a certain amount of uncertainty and trepidation as the dystopian genre is not really my thing. However, one of my favourite actresses, Alexis Bledel, was starring in it, and I was curious as to her newest role. And I was not disappointed. Though definitely hard to watch, it was also gripping and so well told. Plus, the cast including Elisabeth Moss and Ann Dowd were incredible. This time around I have patiently waited to binge watch it in its entirety. But, when I heard it was more brilliant and brutal than ever, the fears and uncertainties crept in again. So reviews such as this help. It’s decided. Time to dive in again. I’ll talk to you on the flipside!
