The Handmaid's Tale, Season 1

The Handmaid's Tale, Season 1 poster

The drama series, based on the award-winning, best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) 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 a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates 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.

The Handmaid's Tale, Season 1 Reviews

Smith cover
It’s not for everyone  Smith cover  2 star

Yes it is very well done. Yes the acting is fine. Yes the cinematography is great and the writer was superb. No it’s not fun. Not easy viewing. Sorry but it’s so intense and depressing that I had to watch every episode in bits and pieces. Be warned. This is definitely different and maybe not your choice for an evening of light entertainment. A really rough go. Especially considering our new political climate.

Haunting. Beautifully done.

Overrated  oceangirl5  1 star

a hunger games version of scarlet letter. Sort of.

Boring  CANARY614  1 star

Slow and boring drama about what Im not even sure of. All I could tell you is that the maids are forced into having sex with the men who employ them while the kinky wife watches. Then bare children. Great T.V. I tell you!

Horrible show  pholly  1 star

It’s boring and unrealistic unless you’re a liberal who believes the lies that group of people keep telling you.

Great Drama  Cristiansb8  5 star

great history, justo great show

Disturbing & Scary!  oncanuck  5 star

A powerful "commentary" on the role of women in the world today, still! Superb acting. All the recognition and accolades are well-deserved.

Disturbingly riveting!  SosoFrench  5 star

A must see!

$14 before Emmys  left888  1 star

$14 before Emmys, the next day you jack up the prices to $32, WOW the GREED of iTunes never fails to amaze!

Bonne sèrie  Darkwon1997  5 star

Très bonne série, je capote, on se sent vraiment dans l'ambiance d'une dictature!😮

Relevant  KjSugi7  5 star

Not only have hey done an amazing. Job bringing the story to life with beautifully eerie imagery but it is super relevant with what's going on in America currently. I've pulled a lot of parallels from the media and the use of current pop culture has added another level of creepiness to the story. I want to see if there is going to be a second season for an interpretation of how they think the story continued! I'm excited to see if there is a season 2 for the interpretation to how the story may have continued!!

Watch This  Jhill4546778  5 star

Its an amazing show. So So good.

Season 2 can't start soon enough!!  62josh62  5 star

I've spent a small fortune on I-tunes but never felt compelled to write a review. This show changed that. Casting is perfect. Theme is frighteningly relevant. This show should be mandatory viewing. I've read the book, watched other adaptations and nothing compares to the perfection that the team responsible for this series created. As much as I admire, love, relate to Offred, I fear I may also feel empathy and hope for Serena. One of the best shows I've ever watched!!!

Annoyed...  Bookworld  5 star

Annoyed it's not an updated movie, waiting for it play week by week is a bit torturous. Great show. It almost can happen.

Good show, annoying delay  Samantha-Butler  5 star

Like everyone else has said - the show is excellent, but why purchase a season's pass if iTunes delays it by 2 weeks? This should be in the Season's Pass description as a disclaimer.

Way behind  Shoebbs  4 star

This show is amazing but iTunes is waaaay behind Hulu air dates (and streaming sources), so I'm constantly trying to avoid spoilers - would not have bought season pass if I'd known about the delay.

Be Warned  RefinedArts  5 star

Not completely true to the book, it is still a wonderful series. You have been warned - these stories are there to tell us what can happen. This could easily occur.

Sophie-Kay Diamond
Brilliant Watch  Sophie-Kay Diamond  5 star

Brutal portrayal of a dystopian world! Best series I've ever watched. Can't wait for series 2!

Captivating show  SarahStudentForLife  5 star

Absolutely brilliant series, enthralling. I'm up to the second last episode. I'm going to miss it when it finishes. Hopefully there's another season on it's way soon. A series not to be missed!

The Handmaid's Tale  1952Jane  1 star

I first watched this fantastic TV series on Australian SBS - On Demand. I then decided to purchase it from iTunes so I could watch it again on my computer free from any advertising. I noticed however that some to the content had been censored from the iTunes version. So disappointing At point of purchase there was no indication that any of the content had been cut I would now like to know from iTunes before I purchase anything whether I will be watching an uncensored version iTunes needs to be very transparent about this - it is deceiving customers not to inform them at point of purchase about whether TV Shows, Movies or Music have been cut I would not have purchased The Handmaid's Tale if I had known it had been censored So purchasers of this TV show be warned - it has been censored

In dire need of a good edit.  Toomanychooks  3 star

5 episodes would have sufficed. Too many long and laboured scenes. Cetainly not worth the hype surrounding the show.

So good!  DAB2312  5 star

Amazing actors and story! Definitely recommend!

Compulsory viewing  Justsayin2017  5 star

The best TV you'll watch this side of GOT. Brilliant casting (Moss, Dowd are amazing), important themes couldnt be more relevant to these times. Terrifying, heartbreaking, confronting and compelling. Beautifully shot, great soundtrack. Can't wait for season 2.

Overrated  Seanovski  2 star

Very comic book one-dimensional characters and story. Over-stylized sets. Unsubtle to the max. Watched episode one, won't be watching more.

Rhythm of life
Amazing... and disturbing  Rhythm of life  5 star

The best tv I have watched in a long time.
