The Emmy-winning drama series returns with a second season shaped by Offred’s pregnancy and her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. “Gilead is within you” is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia. In Season Two, Offred and all our characters will fight against — or succumb to — this dark truth.
Stylish but relentlessly realistic about state-sanctioned terror, esp. as inflicted on the most intimate parts of women’s lives.
Pace is s l o w: ENDLESS repeating two-shots of ashen-faced actors both facing the camera while speaking to one another, or staring somberly off. These people are the true “walking dead” of totalitarianism. Stiff coldness of the characters is soul-killing – yes, that’s the point, but .. man. It’s a post-environmental holocaust world, and life is one long effing funeral, even for the people in power. Life in Gilead is boring, staid, petty cruelty, monotony punctuated by horrific violence and insipid piety. The domestic sphere is a spiritual crypt: slavery, battery, rape, baby stealing. Oppression makes everyone look sick: Frank always looks like he’s holding in diarrhea, June looks like she’s about to harf all the time (not just when pregnant), and frowning Serena has an apparent constant migraine.
Thank god some of the other handmaids get to have more personality. And Aunt Lydia is a more chilling villain that anything in recent memory.
Hope the 3rd season has thematic and emotional pay-off. It better be good, because if we hang in there (no pun intended) for the denouement, show-runners, we’ve seriously earned it!
This show is relevant to our times. It could happen, of course not in exactly this way as giving birth is not a problem but if the right had its way they would force the choice of motherhood on all women. Their agenda is one of control and I do not doubt that given an opportunity they would use both oppressive and violent tactics. This show makes me even more committed to stand against them in every way possible. I am on episode 4 and there are so many things that make me angry. I just wish that the women stood up for themselves more, they are needed to bear children so they have some power. SPOILERS – may follow: -I also hated that Julie accepted responsibility for the death of that family she should have yelled back that it was not her that killed them but insane religious bigots like the aunt. i might have more to add as I watch more of this. Episode 7 – finally a real attack on them by a handmaid! Won’t say too much but at the end of this episode I was cheering. This isn’t the type of show that I normally watch but as I started this review it is so relevant to today that I can’t not watch.
This is really powerful. I love Margaret Atwood’s novels. The Handmaid’s Tale is forceful and disturbing because it has enough plausibility to make it frightening. This series captures the eeriness perfectly. Season 2 goes beyond where the novel ends and remains faithful to the author’s intent and what might be expected to occur after the end of the novel. Elisabeth Moss gives such a visceral performance that you feel like you are trapped in Gilead, too, squirming and wanting to escape…. It’s definitely hard to watch just one episode at a time because the whole season feels so urgent.
