If you watch The Handmaid’s Tale (2017) television show I do not promise that you will be able to sleep well that evening. However, I do promise that you will have something to think about after the show is over. The Handmaid’s Tale is a television show by Hulu. It is a thought-provoking and gritty television show. It is a television show about a dystopian society. In this society, women are separated into different castes. First, there are The Wives. The Wives wear green. The Wive’s job is to take care of her husband and her household.
Next, there are the Martha’s. The Martha’s wear grey. The Martha’s are women that cook and clean in the household. The Martha’s may be minorities. They do not have a lot of power in the household.
Finally, there is The Handmaid. The Handmaid is a woman who wears red. The handmaid’s sole job is to have sex with the man of the household. The Handmaid’s purpose is to one day have a child.
Child-bearing is left to the Handmaid’s in this strange dystopian world. If a Handmaid gets pregnant she completes her life’s mission.
What is The Handmaid’s Tale about? The Handmaid’s Tale is a show about the inequalities between men and women…. and what can happen to a society if extremists gain power. The show is about fighting against evil… in any way you can.
The Handmaid’s Tale is a dark television show that I think people will like if they are into science-fiction or dystopian dramas. It is a dire peek into a strange world that does not exist… and hopefully never will.
All right. That’s all for now.
Until next time…
