THE BINGEWATCHER’S TALE

Empire (Australasia) - - Comment -

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!
