Soo Boring.... Lucky that I have a Blu Ray player that speeds up the movie twice as fast and you still hear the dialogue. The first season was good, even watched the ORIGINAL movie from the theaters. This was sooo slow, no plot..almost gave up on it several times. I guess it won awards because it was constant gay marriage, lesbian couples, etc and Hollywood loves that stuff now. The plot and story could have been done in a 2 hr movie. Every scene was so slow..took 2 minutes to walk from one room to another, etc.. Anyway, there will be a season 3 and I will painfully watch it in another year.

Deep and layered, Season 2 builds nicely (as in horrifyingly) on Season 1. A bit slower than the first season, perhaps, but certainly more intrigue and tension building to a surprising cliffhanger!

Pointless, wandering, sad nonsense. There really is no story.

i quit watching after the 1st disc of the 2nd season. The episodes are too repetitious- there is very little action, just a gloomy face on the main character June/Offred. It becomes very depressing to watch, just a lot of unrelenting sad and dour faces on most of the main characters. If you are anti-Christian and committed to many of today's left wing causes, you will probably like this series. It touches on all the anti-establishment points we are assaulted by when exposed to mainstream news today.

Interesting reviews that vary drastically. I read this book about the time it came out, recently I read it again & didn't much care for it...then I watched the Season One & became more interested. Now I've seen Season Two - a bit slow beginning, lots of back story, lots of drama on the silent facial takes. Then the pace picks up, the reality set in for me.

Having finished this season I came away feeling how farsighted Atwood has been from the inception. Religious beliefs, the use & abuse of such beliefs is so real. Pure brainwashing, men in power -and some women- run amuck with their beliefs. It happens today, maybe not to this degree, but close enough. Lots of god talk, obedient & submissive woman used by men is very real. A twisted, perverted society too darn close to many currently in power. Death is preferable.

I'm just finishing (and loving!) Season One and put in a hold for Season Two. I would love to know what BOOks2go thought of Season One given the low opinion of Season Two. Is Season Two different?

Another terrific season. You'll have to pay attention as it starts out a bit slow and moves back and forth in time. Very good acting by the leads. Can't wait for the next season!

I had to force myself to keep watching, but at the end of the 8th hour (two of 4 discs), I realized that I had actually seen about 90 minutes worth of story. Completely artsy-fartsy nonsense. (Not all that artsy, and and directed by a complete moron with no sense of pace, tension, drama or audience awareness.) Tedious. Boring. Lame. Repetitious. Mind numbing. Monotonous. Wearisome. Uninteresting. Dreary. (Use the thesaurus for other appropriate adjective.) Unless you expect to live another 150 years, use your time more wisely.
