Yeah, then binge watch 2 eps.

Watching Season 2 Ep 1, the ep I initially watched in error then missed somehow.

Okay, so the latest episode comes with a warning. I thought, what could possibly be more harrowing than what else we've seen.

Then i saw it.

It requires the warning. I found it incredibly distressing. I'm still a bit messed up from it.

So very well done.

Was in BigW today, buying slippers. Walking to the cashiers I noticed the book section and did not resist.

Found The Handmaid’s Tale there, $9.00. Of course I bought it.

This ep is a bit rough! Wonder who would have been the target, Fred or Serena Joy? The latter, I think.
