Sorry. Are you actually watching the show? Because what I mentioned is not relevant to the story and happened over a year ago.

Almost done The Wire, what’s with the long drawn out way the characters say “sh*t”? Is that some kind of Baltimore thing?

We are struggling through The Handmaid's Tale.

Season 1 was great. Season 2 was tolerable. Season 3 is beginning to make me side with the oppressors just to either get things moving again or to at least eliminate some of less likeable characters.

It was like the showrunners watched The Walking Dead and decided amongst themselves to challenge the writers to a game of 'Hold My Beer.'

I thought it went a little off track in season 2, but have found season 3 to be great.

You're crazy. Simply insane.

Season 3 has basically been a masturbation fantasy for arthouse film students.

"Look at the light, and the music and the tone and the expressions!!!"

Uh huh. Are we getting anywhere anytime soon? I mean...all of these characters are wandering around doing basically whatever the hell they want without any consequences that in prior seasons were rather severe.

Nor are they actually getting anywhere or accomplishing anything.

If the overall theme of the series is 'Existence through Futility' then they're doing a bang up job. Its like an existential painting. It looks nice but nothing matters.
