triggerwarning do you know that your opinion, just like mine and everyone else's, is personal, then doesn't necessarily correspond to the truth? Do you know that not everyone likes the same things you do? And, uhm, do you know that "taste" is something absolutely personal? Do you know that I really don't care about your unpolitely expressed opinion? You don't like the show? Then go comment (politely, if you can) about something you can give a positive feedback about, cause you're not forced to read positive comments about this show. Keep your negativity away from me.

It's such a shame that Elisabeth Moss is part of an organization that's as ugly as Gilead. I'd Love to see her exit the cult of Scientology and join in some way what Leah Remini is doing.

O livro O Conto da Aia, de Margaret Atwood, eu li por estar na minha lista de livros indicados por Chuck Palahniuk. O livro é uma distopia onde as únicas mulheres férteis que sobraram na terra são mantidas numa espécie de convento onde são obrigadas a fazer sexo com os líderes cujas mulheres não podem gerar, mas que devem estar presentes no coito, pra que possam manter os herdeiros. Com uma ambientação baseada na Bíblia e pontos bastantes polêmicos, o livro é um deleite pra quem gosta de leitura e um ótimo volume pra pensar. Pelo que eu vi do primeiro episódio da série baseada no livro, eles mantém bastante fidelidade, incluindo a forma como a protagonista narra a história é entremeia seu relato com algumas ironias.

Eu recomendo tanto o livro quanto a série.

The book is a dystopia where the only fertile women left in the land are kept in a kind of monastery where they are forced to have sex with leaders whose women can not produce, but must be present in coitus, for they can maintain the heirs. With a setting based on the Bible and quite controversial points, the book is a treat for those who like reading and a great volume to think. From what I saw the first episode of the series based on the book, they keep quite closely, including how the protagonist tells the story is intersperses his account with some ironies.

I recommend both the book and the series.

kismetique Unfortunately, some of those things are fact in real life (genital mutilation, women not allowed to drive or even sex slaves). It's way closer to some's reality then we would like to think.

May 2017

And the fact that this reality is connected to islam and not christianity doesn't matter to you off course. Even in judaism women have less rights than in christianity but to make show like this with judaism or islam instead of christianity that would be politically incorrect. But would certainly be more realistic than this. Women have nowhere such rights and equality as they do in the wester civilisation (which is based on christian values) and still we somehow buy these nosence only to show how ignorant an easily manipulated we are.

June 2017

under a traditionally christian framework, women have very few rights. most of the rights attained by women in the western world have been made as people become more secular.

and christianity? not a "western" religion... it's an eastern religion adopted by the west - most of which has then turned against eastern religions.

just saying...

Mi sento male da quanto sia realistica e profonda questa serie, la adoro. Credo sia una delle serie distopiche meglio fatte finora, è veramente un piccolo capolavoro. Cast eccezionale, storia malatissima e fotografia incredibile, tiene incollati allo schermo già dalla prima puntata.

Sci-Fi? No, this is not a science fiction story! You all should realize that this is our past and our present and unfortunately our future. Women in Saudi Arabia can't drive, women in Afghanistan are forced to cover up in specific uniforms, women in some Asian countries are used by force as a birth machine for human and organs trade, women in THIS world in OUR world are beng used and abused sexually!! There’s women who do not own their own bodies because mafias own it! This is absolutely not a ficitional story, this is a true story but with different clothes and thoughts! There’s still some men in this world who doesn’t respect women and do not sees her equal with them, they only sees her as a sex toy. We should really be sad about this show story because it does REPRESENT our reality!! And by the way, The Handmaid’s Tale has been such an iconic amazing tv show, full of talented people and a lot of details which such an incredible cinematography, stories, characters, soundtrack and emotional moments.

attoomi get history lessons. At the beginning most deities were women. And real feminists would be ashamed of you. Women have equal rights in our western society, and don't give me the crap of the salary gap that I've seen top women sharks plus lawyers making more money than men.

In the meantime in the muslim world women cannot choose whom they marry... i still remember in one of my trips to a rich muslim country a good kind woman wanting to drive ambulances for a living but that she couldn't do it because women can't drive without the authorization of a male relative.

God I don't even wanna be dragged into this kind of discussion because it's not about this society or that society! We all need to stand united for women rights regardless of our location on the world's map! Pointing out to some factors and neglecting others is not gonna help in any way, it will only make us divided more than we already are!

attoomi i know what women stood for, those were brave & wouldn't allow this happening. And I only gave an example of a muslim country, actually one that's kinda progressive, imagine the rest. And i have seen gays executed in other muslim countries. In western world, even the poorest country allows women to vote. Back to the salary issue, I still have to see that salary gap for the same position. What I have seen is some companies paying better than others.

Ok cette série est dingue ! Elle est prenante et hallucinante. Cette dystopie est flippante. Vraiment bonne série J'ai hâte de voir la suite. Au 3e épisode j'étais particulierement choquée et en effet faut mieux pas que Trump regarde ça cela lui donnerait des idées. .. les acteurs jouent vraiment bien toute la détresse humaine de ces femmes est très bien montrée. Que ce soit d'un côté comme de l'autre. Fipu une claque quoi.

Ok this series is crazy! She is involved and hallucinating. This dystopia is scary. Really good series I look forward to see more. In the third episode I was particularly shocked and indeed should better not look at it that Trump would give him ideas. .. actors really play well all the human misery of these women is very well shown. Whether one side or the other. IFUP what a slap.

Au final ce monde utopique est effrayant car POSSIBLE ! Elle est géniale par son réalisme et elle est juste d actualité juste fascinante serie casting et jeux d acteurs à la hauteur !

Uma temporada impecável do começo ao fim, não me decepcionei com nenhum episódio, estou simplesmente apaixonada!!! Essa série tem um roteiro brilhante e uma fotografia de tirar o fôlego!!! Acho que nunca vi uma história tão impactante, chocante, tocante e emocionante ao mesmo tempo! Eu consigo sentir o que cada personagem sente e, na maioria das vezes, é agoniante! Porém, passamos a dar mais valor às pequenas coisas, como a liberdade. Quem somos se não pudermos escolher por nós mesmas? O que temos se nem nosso corpo é nosso?

Apenas assistam essa série maravilhosa, vale a pena cada segundo!!! Só espero que a próxima temporada mantenha o ritmo, estou esperando ansiosamente por ela, vai ser difícil aguentar um ano!

An impeccable season from start to finish, I was not disappointed with any episode, I'm simply in love !!! This series has a brilliant script and a breathtaking photo !!! I do not think I've ever seen such a shocking, shocking, touching and thrilling story at the same time! I can feel what each character feels and, most of the time, is agonizing! But we start giving more value to small things, like freedom. Who are we if we can not choose for ourselves? What do we have if our body is not ours?

Just watch this wonderful series, it's worth every second !!! I just hope the next season keeps up, I'm looking forward to it, it's going to be hard to last a year!

When Margaret Atwood wrote the book in 1985, she was very particular to not include any atrocity that had not already happened to women in the world. (From biblical times to the Puritans, Middle East, and Africa, etc.)

So...yes it has happened, is happening and could happen in America as well. That is not drama. That is fact.

I was looking through some of the comments on the individual episodes and got the impression that many hadn't read the book or didn't even know it existed. I don't even see a lot of comments referencing the book or comparing stuff to the book, just a lot of "oh wow this is a great series," etc. etc. Anyway glad to know there are other viewers that have read the book! :)

D'accord alors pourquoi j'entends parler de cette merveille seulement aujourd'hui ? Version dystopique et totalitaire des USA. Il est question ici de religion, de place hommes/femmes et d'un futur apocalyptique mais qui nous paraît malheureusement bien proche. Je n'ai vu que le premier épisode et je suis restée frappée pendant 1h. Incroyable nouveau petit bijou de Hulu, j'espère vraiment que cette série va marcher. Perso ce qui m'a fasciné dans ce pilote c'est tout simplement le fait que ce soit frappant de réalisme. Très peu de musique, et quand il y en a elle est angoissante. Tellement horrible et en même temps tellement possible ! On ne peut que très bien s'imaginer cela possible à l'heure actuelle en 2017. J'ai vraiment eu peur, à certains moments je n'osais regarder mon écran. Et peut-on parler du cast un instant ? 😱 Que des bêtes d'acteurs je suis ravie ! Bref, foncez. Certes le climat est anxiogène mais la beauté de la série nous fait oublier cela bien vite. Une vraie découverte. J'ai hâte de voir la suite ❤

Okay so why do I hear about this wonder only today? Dystopian and totalitarian version of the USA. We are talking here about religion, the place of men and women and an apocalyptic future, but which seems unfortunately very close to us. I only saw the first episode and I was hit for 1h. Incredible new jewel of Hulu, I really hope this series will work. Personally, what fascinated me in this pilot is the fact that it is strikingly realistic. Very little music, and when there is it is scary. So horrible and at the same time so much possible! One can only imagine what is possible at the moment in 2017. I was really afraid, at times I dared not look at my screen. And can we talk about the cast for a moment? 😱 That beasts of actors I am delighted! In short, go for it. Certainly the climate is anxiety but the beauty of the series makes us forget that very quickly. A real discovery. I look forward to seeing the next

Eu acabei de ver o primeiro ep e tenho que admitir que a série é maravilha em todos os seus sentidos. Eu senti a dor de todas as personagens, pressas em uma sociedade distópica tão horrível, mas que ao mesmo tempo está presente em nossos dias. Ela é ótima para mostrar a aquela pessoa que diz que vivemos em uma geração "mimimi". Mostrar que a menor ação, pode ter um reação enorme em quem sofre. Se você tiver estômago forte, veja. Mas se chorou, como eu, vendo A Lista de Schindler e/ou O Menino do Pijama Listrado, é melhor só ler o livro, pois há cenas que vão te deixar muito abalado.

I just saw the first ep and I have to admit that the series is marvelous in all its senses. I felt the pain of all the characters, haste in a dystopian society so horrible, but at the same time present in our day. She is great to show to that person who says we live in a "mimimi" generation. Show that the smallest action can have a huge reaction on the sufferer. If you have a strong stomach, see. But if you cried, like me, seeing Schindler's List and / or The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, it's better to just read the book, because there are scenes that will leave you very shaken.
