I loved it! Can't wait for the next episodes.


What a quandary - I'm feeling the same conflicts about this series that I had for the book. It's bleak, it's intense social surgery, it is a dark portent, it was a departure for Margaret Atwood when she wrote it, and, although it should feel completely at home in our current dystopia drenched media-verse, it's just a tad off kilter here, as well. I give it a 7 (good) out of 10, for it truly is good, but it unveils itself slowly, is stark in it's characters and sparse in it's environment. One might say the truth it holds to it's themes is why it is good - I'm still puzzling it out. Fantastic cast, however - some of my favourite performers. So, a hesitant recommendation, set among the high praise of others who have reviewed it on Trakt TV.


A must watch show, just brilliant


boring, slow moving and does not offer more than some shocker moments. the hype for this show is unjustified, imho


Original, exciting and terrifying. Series with coherent, connecting episodes. Storyline quality: 8/10 Characters: 10/10 Originality: 10/10 Acting, directing and technical quality: 9/10 (5/10 season 3) Progression: 5/10 (8/10 season 1) Consistency (low if mistakes in plot etc.): 9/10 Intensity (cliffhangers, edge of seat and the like): 9/10 Drama: 9/10 Pretty slow some places of the last two seasons, just keep dragging it out with show stoppers and unnatural character twists. This presents scenes that are excruciatingly boring to watch. Also, it seems like they are trying way too hard on the artsy-fancy-pancy in the last season. (Please like comment if helpful, and I'll keep writing them this way)


A heart warming tale of a nation coming together for the greater good and some tender love making scenes only add to the Handmaid's new sweet life


It seems like this entire story stems from one woman (Serena) being so baby-crazy that she sells out her entire sex to fundamentalist Christians...


This is why feminism can't be ignored, banalized or underrated. Don't be mistaken because it is classified as a Sci-Fi, this is real life. We are living in 2017, but we all know that, unfortunately, it doesn't feel like it sometimes.


I wonder if the show tries to be a visual dissertation on ethics, sociology, economics, political issues or what, because it fails miserably to go beyond a less than failed and simplistic reinterpretation of a few well known periods of human history: the slavery period in the southern US, the various Jew pogroms – particularly the holocaust, and the eugenics movements in the US and Nazi Germany. Their efforts to create a new reality failed miserably becoming just a caricature without much sense of aforementioned periods. Nor I understand the extremely low pace it has with storyline so obvious. I only watched a pair of seasons because my partner “liked” it, don’t ask me why. By the way the purple gowns drive me crazy, they all seem cardinals. For me it isn’t worth the time I wasted watching it. I don’t about the book, but for what I watched of the tv-serie I would most probably file it in the trashcan (with everything else that I should never have read).


Considering, well, the state of the country and the world, The Handmaid’s Tale was a wrecking ball coming straight for your gut. Coupled with the fact that it’s set in Cambridge/Boston, where I live, it felt genuinely terrifying to me. I had read the book back in high school, but had forgotten much of the details. Incredible performances (Alexis Bledel and Samira Wiley!!!) really make the terror of it all really sink in.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
