    The Handmaids Tale

    Returns for another season this week. For those who have watched it, what are people’s thoughts?

    JVP , yes I watch it, great show although they changed it from the book to suit today’s narrative. Some of it is filmed in Toronto and and knew the locations the moment I saw it. most of it is filmed in Ontario... the houses are in Hamilton and Guelph Ontario is where they often are as well.

    funny that the show was allowed to gather and film but no one was allowed to open their businesses over the last year in this city, unless they were Walmart or Costco. and it continues to this day, for over a year.

    i do look forward to it starting up again though. I would think Americans running here in reality would not happen. They would be running from socialism and into a worse 40 year leap forward of doc tat or authoritarian government who is corrupt. Lol

    love the show though and will be nice to escape into the story again.

    the writer of the book, lives in Toronto too. MargaretAttwood. Met her once when I was young in a restaurant.

      Soooo tonight is a two part premier. Can’t wait.

      I guess they didn’t have to lock down production because they wear masks anyways.

      I just hope that the season of it is not stopped at 7 episodes or something because they were told by the government to shut down production. I hope they got to complete the season before that happened.

        Yeah, I have to get back to this, thought it was a really really good show, just that it gets pretty heavy at times

        Up to about half way through season 3

          Last seasons final scene was epic with Mazzy Stars “Into Dust” playing. Don’t usually get emotional at TV shows but this came close.

          Be interesting where they take it this season.

              Well, Chicago episode was great. Do you think Jenine died?

              The Martha’s told nick something to the effect of, everyone dies for June..
              June has the hat to remember her by.

              handmaids never walk alone, so in pops guess who?

              How did she get there... into a war zone. She is always fixing June’s fuck ups, or is June hallucinating and it is really nick?

                Those long solid color gowns and bonnets irritate me not to watch it.

                I like my ladies wearing something a tad bit more reveling.

                  Did I hear war zone?



                  I finished up to the end of season 3 last night.

                  I feel like the only place this series can go now would require too much of a boost in budget; seeing the actual from lines of the war / Guerilla attacks etc



                  But I still feel this whole premise makes little sense and is the wrong way around.

                  If you did have a worldwide fertility crisis, males would be the ones disposable, you wouldnt have situations where normal grunts: guardians were allowed to even interact with handmaids, let alone guard them and definately not shoot them

                  You'd have female soldiers guarding them and women like Aunt Lydia would be the ones in charge
                  But a series where a fictional new Nazi party and SS we're mostly female wouldn't be all that popular


                  Also in the show, so far, the US is seemingly the only place that has gone authoritarian with a 90% drop in the birth rate across the world, and every other country is just business as normal, Canada is some kind of libtard safe haven. Come on, as if. Especially post Covid that part of the premise seems more ridiculous. Every country would be freakin the fuck out and have all women that could breed centralised at places they could be very well guarded, 5 star hotels , every whim catered for, million Instagram followers as soon as they get pregnant


                  That's what would really happen

                    Canada as well. We areworse than the USA when it comes to a draconian society. We don’t have freedom.. Pierre Trudeau killed it.

                  Well, caught up with the series

                  Season 4 was going exactly where It wanted it to go - Guerilla warfare stuff
                  But then she just jumps on a ship to Canada

                  So yawn, I assume just a whole lot of talkie talkie episodes to come

                    She won’t be in Canada for long. She is going to get caught again.

                      She will definitely head back. I don’t think things are going to be the same with her husband. Maybe they will go back together to fight,
