    Some nice tense moments while viewing to keep interest.

    Binge worthy!! ive been hooked with June's story since the first season and does not disappoint into the 3rd, highly recommended!
  • Jul 10, 2021
    Aaaaaand, we carry on in the vein of S02, with the meandering and suggestion. Slower than it should be, and therefore less dramatic. The constant changes in power dynamics between the three main characters continues to be frustrating. All good, this is pretty forgettable. Doesn't fill me with confidence that S04 will be anything to write home about

    About to finish the season but come on June should have been dead like 100times over. Honestly Game of thrones would have killed her off a very long time ago with all the stuff she has been doing and saying literally to the makers of gilead in their faces. Others are being hung for way way way less. Is it because she is blonde and has blue eyes? Probably why don't see a lot of blond blue eyes people on the wall anyway.

    A little too drawn out at times - enough with the facial close-ups already! But they manage to leave you hanging and intrigued at the end of each episode, enough to keep you watching. I read the book years ago and this series seems to be taking alot of unnecessary liberties. They're squeezing the life out of it.

    A great season that is affected by one weak episode but besides that is darker and has a lot of emotions especially in the last episode wich is the best one so far.
  • Jun 23, 2021
    Nearly as boring as the second season, but it's not an entire season of gratuitous torture so that's an improvement. I'd still recommend just watching a recap to get to season 4. This show is not very deep or original after the first ten episodes.
  • Jun 17, 2021
    Not sure why this season wasn't as well received. I actually thinking the character development over the three seasons is excellent; especially June. THIS is how to corrupt your protagonist (GoT S8 I'm looking at you). But with excellent character development comes slow pacing. Everything about this series is slow; all 3 seasons so far. lol

    Margret Atwood wrote A Handmaid's Tale in 1985. About four years later I was born and when I was in high school we had to read it. I was thrilled, captured by writing, the characters and the utopian regime of Gilead. Then about 10 years later I have heard, that there is a TV Show called Handmaid's Tale and I thougt, well what if it is about the book? So, I started to watch and I couldn't stop. I was impressed by the cast, especially by Elisabeth Moss, her awesome performance as the main character "June Osbourn" ("Offred"). So I couldn't wait for season 3, then for season 4 In the meantime I have been reading the second book "The Testaments" by Margret Atwood. Again, I was impressed, thrilled, excited and couldn't wait for the new season, how they gonna adopt the book or not. Season 3 is stunning, brutal, exciting, strong and Elisabeth Moss delivers again a brilliant, breathtaking performance.

    Slow as hell, repetitive , last 3 episodes are all that matters, dissatisfied in general. Please end it soon.
