Default The Handmaid's Tale

Has anyone else seen this?
We started watching the series on disc.

So far it seems awesome.
I'm going to like it much like Hunger Games.

I'll give it an A+ already.

I know a lot of people who are hooked on it. Can't say I've seen it.

I know you're a sci-fi fan Bob.
This is a mix of that, strange government take over which the storyline switches back and forth from past to present with weird religious stuff thrown in.
The Commander rules what is left of the United States. If women don't comply, they are sent to The Colonies.
The only way to freedom thus far is escaping to Toronto aka Little America.

I think you'd be hooked too.
We've only gotten through one disc of episodes.
Ali keeps telling me just wait until the next one.
You're gonna sh!t
