Who else like this TV show? I'm halfway through the first season and really enjoying it.

I've read the book but haven't seen the tv show. The SNL parody was pretty funny though...

This is nothing more than a hysterical neo-feminist's distortion of men, a patriarchal-leaning society, and a conservative one at that. Not surprised at all why it's popular since our society has been indoctrinated by socialists under the guise of education. The irony is that feminists and progressivism is what leads to "The Handmaid's Tale" with all their rules regarding micro-aggressions, sexism, hate speech, and every other made-up, embellished -isms they can dream up.

I haven't watched the show since I last posted this but  I recently fell in love with these weird dystopian futuristic/scifi shows. I thought its metaphorically similar to what we are experiencing in US in a way but then I really have no clue to what's happening in the world today lol
