Haunting, thrilling, exceptional, and brilliant – these are just a few words to describe the phenomenal show, The Handmaid’s Tale. A story that will crawl underneath your skin, move into your system and flow through every vein, leaving you gasping for air.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel of a religious takeover of the USA that subjugates women, using them primarily for their fertility – to bear a child for couples who are unable to do so, by forced intercourse with the husband while the wife is present.

Though many moments goes at a very tortuously slow pace, probably to drag it out through several seasons, it’s still beautifully produced. However, it does come a point where you wonder when it’ll all end, will it get solved? Will these women be free?
The first and second season is close to being a masterpiece, though the third one is more of a snooze fest yet you cannot stop yourself from watching, knowing something epic will soon burst through the screen, leaving you mouth-dropping-eyes-wide.

The acting is close to perfection, every single character brings such powerful performance that you’re left in awe, such depth radiating through from the story, visual, and act. 9/10
