Yeah, then binge watch 2 eps.

Watching Season 2 Ep 1, the ep I initially watched in error then missed somehow.

Great Ep of Handmaid’s Tale!

Hmmm I did not see the Ep where the handmaidens were kneeling in the rain holding a stone in their outstretched right arm. I came in on that one.

A couple of the scenes in the final episode had me hitting the pause button, though.

I had to get up and get another wine.

Pretty disturbing stuff.

The two main actors are fantastic.

I'm looking forward to watching the next series.


Yeah, it's chilling, isn't it. Wine helps. The next few seasons likewise (season 4 just ended).

And i cannot express how much i love Saga and Martin. Best team of all time.

I'm only up to Ep 7 of season 1.

I had to finish the first season of The Bridge - that was SO good!


How good is it? Clever, clever writing.

Love the theme song too ... almost as much as i love the theme song to 'Vikings'.

Season 2 is interesting, isn't it. It really dissects the relationships between the women, caused by their responses to lack of autonomy.

A very interesting parallel to reality.
