There is more fight and light in this series than I expected, but don't get it twisted: this is some rough stuff. From the start, you're immersed in a world of fear, struggle, and heartbreak. In the new theocratic republic of Gilead, Offred must suppress her inner rebel to survive as a handmaid ("two-legged womb") to a powerful commander. We also see her life "before," when she was a carefree student, then a new mom. And we see glimpses of the country's transition. It's terrifyingly realistic. It's extraordinarily compelling TV.

“It’s not only a feminist story, it’s also a human story.” Margaret Atwood, 2017 Think this can't happen? Just watch. What's extraordinary and horrifying is how current its issues are to all of us. THT pulls no punches - or slaps (Atwood cameo).Exposition is done brilliantly in the form of Elisabeth Moss' flashbacks and narration. Heard and seen only by the viewer, her thoughts help us understand what is happening, has happened and how. I'm only just at the start of episode two but this is an extraordinary show, one that will stay in my mind for a very long time. As has the book. “It’s not only a feminist story, it’s also a human story.” Margaret Atwood, 2017
