So Hulu will be producing a TV series based off the 1985 novel The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood. There was a movie made in 1990 that was kind of a flop and deviated pretty far from the plot, and oddly enough, a Danish minimalist opera in the early 2000s. Considering the nature of this site, I figured that a lot of people would be interested, because it handles Christian fundamentalism pretty literally. The whole women's subjugation theme is especially pertinent to American women, considering our new overlord- I mean demagogue- I mean president It will premiere April 26, 2017. There's a short preview out already, and I am wicked excited, because it is my all-time favorite book. It looks a lot better than the 1990 movie. I can already see a few differences. Hopefully someone out there is just as excited for this show as I am!
How did June end up back in her cell at the Waterfords house since the baby was already born? SJ hates her and wants to pretend the baby is hers. Frankly, I've had enough of June in that room. I was disappointed that Ep. 11 resolved so little, it felt so stretched out to me. And what was with the wolf symbolism? It must have not been too hungry, as it never even approached June. I also wonder why she didn'tlook for the master electrical panel. June had to know that all that strenuous activity would likely bring on labor, she was at the point where anything coud happen at any time. It's fortunate there were no complications. I did wonder about the placenta and cutting the cord. I'm surprised she didn't immediately put Holly to the breast. The SJ/Fred fight scene was epic though. I got news for you Serena, they hate you too! Fred's head is firmly up his ass if he really thinks June would be grateful to him. Gilead must not have a good communication system, you think Fred would have been informed right away that his driver had been apprehended for suspicious activity. Agnes McKenzie, that's Hannah's new name. I don't care how good they are taking care of her, they are still massive assholes for stealing children. Beautiful summer home though. Not sure how I feel about the show going forward. Nick wasn't set up. Once again, June's unthinking behavior led to harm for someone else. She should have left as soon as the guardian said to. Although it is good that she didn't have to endure that ridiculous birthing ceremony or have her daughter ripped from her arms as soon as she came out. I hope she got a blood tranfusion as soon as she got back to Gilead. Yep, I posted about that above. Good ol' old testament name, not even Catholic sounding or anything (given that Gilead hates Catholics). The McKenzies just wanted to try to erase the past.
SilverBeach posted a topic in Quiverfull of TVI'm starting this thread early because there are numerous EP 12 spoilers out there (Reddit is awash in them). Anyone who can't hold back and wants to get the discussion going, have at it!
Just saw a screening of this in Miami. Won tickets. Karl Urban was there. Have been up for like 24 hours now so hope this is coherent. Anyone who loved Judge Dredd (not the Stallone movie), go see this film. It's nasty, gritty, dystopian and very violent (people had little kids at the screening, I was shocked). Note VErY VIOLENT, and it's all in 3D. But even me, who can't stand the sight of blood made it through it because the way it was done was just so cool. Ok, I promised the people who put on the screening I'd spread the word.
the author is L.A. Weatherly and there are two so far book in the series. I thought it was very good and enjoyed it as much as the hunger games. I am on the second book now. but it was written this year so I don't know if the series will go on yet or not.
