I have seen season 1 & 2. Some comments here.

The religious right seizing control, create a dystopia.

If that was true I would have called it a utopia.

See this:

“We taught them (females) to read. We won’t make that mistake again!”

That is a Q U O T E , a quote from an episode.

My comments are not in quotes.

“anything to make men look bad... and women look stooopid”

That is not what the Handmaid’s Tale is about at all.

A dystopia, nuclear war or major nuclear accident (not specified in the book) leads to the religious right killing the POTUS & members of Congress, set up religious republic of Gilead in big part of what is US now.

Patriarchy set up, religious “commanders” as they are called form the ruling council, women are forbidden to read. Problem of human reproduction. Fertile women are rounded up and given a choice—work on removing nuclear contaminated soil or agree to bear children for the commanders—it is said the wives of the commanders are sterile, it is actually the Commanders who are but you don’t say that in a patriarchy! The rule of the theocracy is maintained by rather vicious armed Guards and Eyes (spies on the populace.)

The tale follows the life of June (Offred, the pronoun “of” and the name of the commander, Fred Waterford) as she is trained by the “Aunts” for her role then her life in the Waterford household incl the sex with the Commander until she escapes and writes her Tail.

It is a warning of the power of the religious right who resent women being educated, able to live their life their way not the religious right’s way etc.

Is it dark? Well, yes, it is a DYStopia. To say the attitudes of the patriarchy are my attitudes is REALLY offensive, nothing in my posting history here and in my fine forum or in our email correspondence can lead you to say they are my attitudes. That was a rotten thing to say, cods!

At the moment I am rewatching odyssey 5. It was a scifi show that ran in the UK a long time ago and was cancelled so fast the last 6 episodes werent aired. I have the boxset which includes the 6 episodes but it still ends on a cliffhanger. Sad. Anyway its one of the bbest scifis i have seen.

No, I was just angry that she made that cheap shot, especially as we had a fair bit of email correspondence so she would know Gilead is not my ideal!
