5/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - Holly (TV Episode) The pace of this episode could have felt slow... But there's so much tension to every minute and so much, if you'll excuse the pun, riding on June finding the keys and zooming out of the garage, that it's as anxiety-producing as her earlier near-escape. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 95% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - The Last Ceremony (TV Episode) Yes, this is a television show, a dark fantasy borne out of one genius's worried mind. But art exists to unclothe and redress reality in garments that will make its truth more apparent.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - Smart Power (TV Episode) There really is no rational reason that Canada would invite the Waterfords at all. But Handmaid's Tale had to kick-start what I'm assuming will be further escalating tensions with our no-longer-friendly neighbors to the north.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - After (TV Episode) To see a woman, any woman, rain down such fury on a man like Commander Cushing is redemptive...‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - First Blood (TV Episode) The episode is called "First Blood," which I thought was merely a distasteful reference to the loss of Nick's wife's virginity. But by the end, it's clear that this is just a taste of what's to come. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 88% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - Seeds (TV Episode) Part of the kick of Handmaid's Tale is that we find ourselves judging women's decisions with the same derision we'd tut-tut if we saw it offscreen.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 92% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - Other Women (TV Episode) What worries me more is that this episode only feels so shallow because we've grown too used to the torture and gore. But where do we go from here? ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - Baggage (TV Episode) Are we living in a pre-Gilead era? Along with stellar acting and brilliant writing, it was the fear of that exact idea that propelled the first season of The Handmaid's Tale to mass popularity. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - Unwomen (TV Episode) If you've wondered to yourself, as I have, Why didn't more people just flee America when they realized what was happening? the airport scene answers that question.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 94% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 - June (TV Episode) It's got to be said here, that with her first, silent minutes of season two - Offred still hasn't said a word - that Elisabeth Moss fully confirms that her wide-ranging mastery of the role is about to be repeated, and perhaps bested.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 88% Howards End: Miniseries (TV, 2017) But the adaptation is faithful where it ought to be and flexible when it needs to be. It isn't the original, but it isn't some paltry imitation, either.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) But in Alias Grace, there's an even more galvanizing heroine for our time. Of course the system is rigged against us, Grace says, so don't try to bring it down. Use it to our own ends.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - You Get What You Need (TV Episode) What we did need - and what we got - was an unvarnished exploration of the multitudinous ways to be a woman. A series that shattered the Bechdel test. Not a celebration of women, but simply a thoughtful recognition of them.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
