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.

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.

$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!!

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!!!

Bookworld
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.

Samantha-Butler
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.

Shoebbs
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.
