Critic reviews for Smart Power
The Handmaid's Tale continues to entangle several key characters in unlikely alliances.
The Handmaid's Tale achieved a milestone in that it finally got me to sympathize with Serena, "Smart Power" does something far more essential. It holds her accountable.
This show gives you the chance of revolution...No matter how dire the circumstances are, there are people who are going to fight it and maybe topple it.
We finally have some movement, and God knows, we needed it. As much as I love this show, it has been frustrating that nothing ever goes anywhere.
The koshing of Janine was callous, but the spewing rage aimed at the Waterfords went some way to diluting the usual grimness. What would have been a 4 rises to a 6, thanks to Isaac's casual brutality.
