I watched this early this morning. I am really looking forward to Wednesdays lately. This is on Hulu if anyone is curious. Thoughts and bits from the show this week: Well, she has gone and done it. Glad she is at least getting something out of this. Work, work, work! Bloody and ick. Foreigners visiting. Diplomats. Trade delegation from Mexico. No rest for the weary. Mrs. Waterford. Creaky floors. Speak wisely. Red's my color. The Waterford's actually had a sexual, romantic time? A regular relationship? Never mistake a woman's meekness for weakness. A book about domestic feminism. Interesting. Attacks. Praise be? They are doing God's work. Another trip to his office. The party. Ceremony. Refused . Frustrated. Women and their real purpose. Even the righteous need a little show business. Celebration of Gilead The contribution. The children of Gilead. All brought forth by the hand maids. Red tags? Trading for hand maids. Trashman going through The trade went through She's an amazing woman. Allfred's panic attack My name is June It's nice to meet you Under his eye I lied to you. Brutal They rape me every month I didn't chose this Please don't be sorry. Please do something. I can't help you What are you going to trade us for? We're human beings My country is dying Is her husband still alive?

I watched the movie that was released in 1990. It was a good movie as I recall. Don't have HULU so I can't watch the series.

SInce I've never seen the show this doesn't make much sense to me. Is the lady one the show pregnant or something or is the photo completely unrelated? If all that is going on in her life it doesn't sound like a handmaiden of old that's for sure.

The photo shows what these will have to do in their lives now. Nothing else. If they don't get impregnated then they are shipped off to some remote place. It's a futuristic look.

@celticeagle Oh. I've never heard of it before and didn't know there was a movie until I happened to catch another comment. My younger daughter got my older daughter hooked on a show that's on hulu too. I don't know the name of it though. I'm debating whether I want to get back into watching Grey's Anatomy, that's about the only series that interests me, but when I watch that I don't do much of anything else. Course anything we do other than our list results in the same result I suppose, lol.

Because the men had other duties. The lady was afraid I think.

Got to finally watch this this morning. It was crazy I got so nervous for her telling that visitor woman all what was going on.
