The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1

The Handmaid's Tale was incredibly hard to watch, more so to binge-watch it. In fact, it took me a good couple of weeks to finish all ten (10) as I needed to unwind at the end of every episode. That's not a bad thing though. It's extremely overwhelming from the narrative down to the imagery, but it's an all around impressive body of work. Elisabeth Moss, in particular, was outstanding. Is it for everyone? Definitely not, but I would recommend this in a heartbeat.
