Audience Reviews for The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1

  • 20h ago
    ExceIente roteiro e narrativa, soco no estômago e tapa na cara da sociedade, não estamos muito distante dessa 'distopia' é o que a escritora quer dizer. A violência simbólica ou física me causou desconforto. A crítica a administração autoritária e a postura da sociedade em relação à mulher, consegue chocar quem assiste com uma mensagem de clareza e carga dramática. A experiência de ver, questionar e pensar sobre a série se faz mais do que nunca, necessária.

    Nothing against the actors or any of the people that put a lot of time and effort into the show, but it just wasn't for me.
  • Jul 04, 2022
    Dark and twisted but the acting is solid and the storytelling is fresh.
  • May 13, 2022
    Amazing show. Keeps you on edge and makes you feel tons of emotions. The costumes and the scenes are shot beautifully and it keeps things real.
  • Apr 12, 2022
    One of the best tv shows I have ever seen. The cast is incredible and Margaret Atwoods story is amazing. It's defiantly dark, a bit disturbing and unnerving, but that is part of what makes it great. I have nothing negative to say about this show, I enjoyed every minuet of it. I felt connected with the characters and invested in the story. Overall an amazing watch and incredible story.
  • Mar 05, 2022
    As amazing as the book. That says a lot.
  • Jan 30, 2022
    It's absurd, strange, entertaining and keeps you wanting to see more and more. Good cliffhanger at the end of this season

  • Jul 24, 2021
    Thoroughly enjoyable series. May not stick religiously to the book but still engaging.
  • Jul 13, 2021
    Best show I've seen since game of thrones and one of the most faitful book to tv adaptions I've ever seen! The costumes and the sets 100!!! -- Not gonna lie the rape scenes are pretty cringe but their imortant to the story of Margret Atwood's totaliterian patriarchal nightmare!!! If you haven't read the book or seen the show, do yourslef a favor and start watching!!!
