Just as riveting as season one, the team taking Margaret Atwood's inspired world and running with it.
Great. Season 1 is the best, but this one is insane and psychological. Season 3 is meh.
Interesting take on "what happened after?" that was not explored in the novel. I found the development of her relationships interesting and showing life of refugees in Canada added another side (though there are a lot of issues with how they portray that experience). The ending of the season however made no sense at all and seemed like a betrayal of the lead character.
Elisabeth Moss performance is incredible
In Season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale, the writers had to go off-book and create their own material. This results in a good, but uneven, season. The cinematography, music, and acting are still excellent as before. New elements of the show's universe, such as the colonies where women are worked to death, are introduced seamlessly and make for shocking scenes and beautiful visuals. We also get new backstory which helps us understand its characters and world better.
However, the writing can be lacking, with characters' personalities changing between episodes. The writers also do not move the story and characters forward, finding ways to undo a lot of developments, as if they are afraid to alter the status quo of the show. This can be frustrating since it feels as if the plot and characters never progress. However, for fans of the show and universe, it is worth powering through to see the truly excellent moments.
They start to run out of arguments by Season 2
في مستقبل خيالي تتمكن ديكتاتورية دينية من السيطرة على الولايات المتحدة، لتقوم بعملية قلب للمفاهيم والقيم، يحكي المسلسل حياة سيدة تم استعبادها في المجتمع الجديد (جلياد) وكيف تمكنت مع مجموعة من الإماء من عمل تنظيم سري استطاع هدم النظام الجديد من الداخل. ويصور المسلسل بدقة كيف ستبدو الحياة/القيم/المفاهيم في ظل ديكتاتورية دينية (ثيوقراطية - نَصيّة)؟
Though still evolving plot-wise, the series start to downfall in second season. Mainly the problem is in repetition of plot twists and hardly believable luck of Moss' heroine.
Knowing where this season is leading has really enhanced it. Heroines are not born, they are made, and in this season you get to see that sometimes difficult process play out. Brilliant
Amazing season! Really interesting
