The Handmaid's Tale is vicious, gripping, biting, political drama at its best, but I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that this is a show that hates America. It's a wonder there's not more fuss.
From a perpetually flat June making breathtakingly stupid decisions to the ongoing cosmic joke that is this show's writer/director gender breakdown, it's hard to keep rooting for "The Handmaid's Tale."
"The Handmaid's Tale" stays true to a disturbing vision of an America we hope never comes to pass in this well-crafted third season. However the story is slowly beginning to take a new pace, as winds of revolution begin to emerge.
