    It starts on Channel 4 at 9pm on Sunday night this week.

    Reviews have been good so far. I've read the book and think it will make a fascinating series.

    I've seen the film that was made years ago. Very enjoyable and disturbing.

    Set in a nightmare in the future, a woman is forced to live as a sex slave because the right wing bible bashing loons have taken over.

    I can't wait to watch it.
  7. Are you sure it's set in the future?

    The earth has gone wrong and a woman is forced to live as a spiny coated rodent by a nasty, religiously based government.

    You missed out that neither gender is allowed to enjoy sex as it is only meant for reproductive reasons.

    Hurr hurr.

    It is eerily prophetic at times like. I hope they do Oryx and Crake next.

    Most of the time ;)

    Weren't the Canterbury Tales televised (albeit in a modernised adaptation) by the BBC 10 or 15 years ago? Quite good, from what I remember.

    I'm still waiting for a proper televisation of the Decameron myself.

    The lass from Mad Men is superb in it

    It's on Kodi, I pay for RealDebrid like.

    Watched the first 6, enjoying it. It's really grim like.

    Yes. I remember the Wife of Bath's tale with Julie Walters being very good.

    I read the Handmaid's Tale years ago but I'm not so keen on Elizabeth Moss being in it. I'll keep an open mind.
