Last week’s episode showed that Hulu’s TV adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t afraid to take us outside of Offred’s point of view, even if it was just in flashback before. “The Other Side” has taken things a step further, centering an entire episode around another character, and giving us a new look at what’s…
The Handmaid’s Tale continues to surprise me. In a welcome twist, the show takes a step back from Offred and puts us in the shoes of the women complicit in her oppression... proving enablement is a crime all its own.
The latest episode of The Handmaid’s Tale deals with answering one important question: How does someone cope with having no power? When everything is taken away, how do you keep from falling apart? For Offred, Ofglen, and dozens of other handmaids in Gilead, it’s about taking whatever you can. Because when you have…
You’ve read the book, you’ve seen all the episodes of the show so far, and you’ve spent the past week repeating “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum, bitches!” Hulu’s excellent adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale is equal parts invigorating and infuriating—and its themes couldn’t be more eerily timely.…
I have a few beefs with Hulu’s adaptation of the notable novel that has set many a school girl on a path to feminism and rejection of fuckbois. There’s obviously my disappointment with Serena Joy’s transformation from spackled mess of a Tammy Faye icon to coifed Ivanka Trump twin (mainly because I want to see Yvonne…
Hulu’s riding high thanks to the critical success of its original miniseries, The Handmaid’s Tale, so now is the perfect time for it to follow up a great show with some good news. The TV provider is now giving subscribers access to live TV potentially as good as the stuff your cable provider pipes in. While Hulu was…
The Defenders trailer gave you a team of foul-mouthed adults with bad coping skills, and now the first look Runaways are its lighter teen equivalent. Less binge drinking, similar amounts of angst, and a whole lot more mommy and daddy issues. Also, one of these kids is clearly an outspoken feminist.
The Handmaid’s Tale is only in its second week, with four episodes released so far, but it looks like we’re not leaving Gilead anytime soon. Hulu announced the show has been renewed for a second season.
The first three episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale are now available on Hulu; we’ve already given our thoughts on the series, which remains mostly faithful to Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel of the same name, but there are some changes, some big, some small, that separate the two—and we’ve broken them down for you…
The Handmaid’s Tale debuted on Hulu with its first three episodes, throwing the audience head-first into the Red Center for a hard education on life in Gilead. It’s largely effective, except for the moments it reminds us it’s effective.
If there’s one name that is synonymous with Batman, it’s Bob Kane. As the series’ original creator, he’s long been seen as the genius behind the Dark Knight. One documentary is shining a Bat Signal on the other man behind Bruce Wayne.
At 2011's San Diego Comic-Con, a lucky few got to see the first attempt at a TV adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s cult-favorite IDW horror fantasy comic. That pilot never got picked up, but Locke & Key has been playing the second-chance sweepstakes ever since—and it looks to have paid off.
Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic novel The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t a groundbreaking show in terms of storytelling or film technique. Unfortunately, given the state of the world, it doesn’t need to be, and that’s what makes the show so powerful—and so chilling.
The new audiobook for The Handmaid’s Tale is now on Audible, which includes a radio drama styled as a Q&A that answers a few lingering questions about the book and its characters. However, it mostly left us with a big question of our own: Is Margaret Atwood setting up a sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale?
Starting today, you can stream the first three episodes of Hulu’s new scifi anthology, Dimension 404. While the show wears its many influences rather prominently—The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror are the most obvious—it does so in an enjoyable way, with great casting that makes a huge difference.
Margaret Atwood’s iconic scifi novel The Handmaid’s Tale left things on a final, yet somewhat ambiguous, note. Now, ahead of the upcoming Hulu adaptation, Atwood has released a new audiobook chapter that tells more about what happened after that closing line: “Are there any questions?”
Director Freddie Wong and showrunner Dez Dolly today shared the first peek at six-part scifi anthology series Dimension 404, which appropriately will begin airing on Hulu on April 4. It’s a very short teaser, but you see Patton Oswalt freaking out in a theater as part of an episode about a killer (literally) 3D movie.
The first full trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale is here, and there’s no doubt it’s going to be one of the most impactful shows of 2017.
