For the past few days, all I’ve been able to think about is The Handmaid’s Tale. I’m itching for new episodes, and I haven’t felt this much anticipation for a tv series in quite some time. Although I’m only three episodes in, there’s a good reason for my obsession.
The newly added Hulu series adapted from Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel of the same name eerily resembles current events and brings the importance of women’s rights to the forefront. With the dystopian world set in the age of dating apps and contraception usage, as a character rightly points out, it’s hard not to draw parallels to a novel that is supposed to be simply a work of fiction.
