The Handmaid’s tale … First episode was unreal.


#5333

I’ve been recommended numerous times to start this. Unfortunately, all the recommendations came from women. I think I’ll give it a go now.


#5334

I can see why women folk would be into it but it seems like it’s going to be top show… A mixture of the red scare movies of the 50/60s with everyone being suspicious with a tinge of Salem witch hunt.


#5335

I watched the pilot. Couldn’t do it, the book is far superior.


#5336

Provided you are talking to me… I’d say that’s the first time ever someone has said the book was better than the show/movie.


#5337

The Shining movie >>>>>


#5338

But certainly the book ruined the program.


#5339

Electric Dreams any good?

Sounds right up my street.


#5340

TG, It’s a slow burner so far with me. About half way through.


#5341

Sehr interessant


#5342

:eek:

The oul particicution looked some craic.


#5343

I flew through a load of mindhunter last night. Very enjoyable.


#5344

I watched the first three episodes Friday night. He doesn’t half love eating the box off your your one


#5345

You couldn’t blame him really.


#5346

I’ve watched a few more episodes and it turns into a lovely slow burner - which I thoroughly enjoy - it captures the essence of the hell of living in a world where you are totally and utterly at the mercy of those in power… Lot of parallels with modern muslim women/ society - even Irish women and the laundries – and of course society under any authoritarian regime.

Couple of lads here will be delighted with how the gays are treated in it — Gender traitors they are called and hung instantly…


#5347

Watched the first episode of ‘Power’ last night. Predicable enough but enjoyed it.


#5348

I’ve just told you about the Handmaid’s tale and you watch that shite …dear oh dear


#5349

Is it science fiction shite?


#5350

No.


#5351

And there’s nothing wrong with science fiction - just because you’re a bogger cunt with no imagination …

the only thing make believe is a genetic disease that has made most of society sterile - other than that, it’s as you were… I imagine it’s pretty much like Ireland in the 60s/70s when the the catholic church were listened to, so you’ll probably love it.
