    Brilliant final episode and set up very nicely for another good series.
    Loved the way Aunt Lydia was starting to soften in the last couple of shows

    Excellent series. Not exactly a laugh a minute mind.

    To be fair that's basically how the book ended - so it would have worked even if it didn't get a second series. I think the writing has been tremendous to flesh it out to 10 episodes. And I loved the whole look of the show with its coordinated colours too - reds and teals etc in the clothes and interiors.

    good to see margaret atwood is still involved with the second series, she won't allow it to go anywhere it shouldn't

    Me too - she's been an underappreciated character. Basically a warped camp commandant mixed with mother superior.

    Canny. Had to watch the last one in the daytime as I worried it'd be too scary!
    Had the sound mute for the mutilation scene and kept looking away

    Warren could easily have kept hold of his hand (s?) if he'd just denied everything she said about running away together.

    Damn, too many TV shows to watch - everything starting in April.

    Quite enjoyed the first season, I think the missus liked it more than me so will definitely watch the new season.

    Really looking forward to this - I hope that there's no loss of quality in the storyline.

    I hope it keeps it's humour.

    It was ok like but nowhere near as good as Alias Grace. Not even in the same league tbh.

    Well, the handmaids' choir looks quite entertaining:

    I enjoyed both. The Handmaid's Tale for me had more of an effect as it was more disturbing and certain scenes stayed with me long after. I think you are probably in a very small group in thinking it's 'not in the same league', however. Your opinion, fair enough.

    :lol: Always loved Ron B dressed as a woman. He hated it apparently.

    The first two episodes have been screened if you're lucky enough to be in America.
