The Handmaid's Tale

The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values'. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred is a Handmaid in the Commander's household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

So many of the scenes were too dark to tell what was going on. While the storyline was good, this poor lighting  kind of spoiled it a bit.

The difference between Nick and Lukes words/actions sets up Season 5 so well.

And yes.i agree.Very satisfying/cathartic.
