    S02.E04: She Knows

    So yeah I’m 54 .. Botox would be at most $800 for that area. Nobody gets fillers in their forehead you’d look like Frankenstein but even if you did, $1500 tops. I live in NJ and have gone to park avenue doctors and overspent so it wouldn’t be MORE in Monterey. maybe a brow lift? Even so... lasers could definitely add up. If she’d just pointed to her face, sure. A small thing but it threw me out of the scene.

    Did I hear right? $4200 for Botox? Because,,, that’s not what it costs, even in Monterey. Unless that was over the past... year?

    I just assumed 1849- the year of revolutions all over Europe, as well as a Prince reference. clearly I am overeducated. (1848 was really big year but they were still going on in 1849 so I was all cool cool)

    Steal her away, not steal as in she’s not her mother, steal away like lovers steal away together. I still find it hard hard to believe gilead which has been in existence less than 10 years, I’d say less than 5 even, given Hannah’s age, has so many rituals and ways to be and all the commanders and wives and even wives mothers like Serena’s are so down with it all. i mean they’ve spent most of their lives NOT in Gilead. Surely they should still be inventing stuff.

    That makes sense though in 2019 anyway it’s not as if Walkman are hanging around for the taking... maybe if they’d shown him trying to find one. It makes more sense for the Lawrences to have a cassette deck in basement than it does for refugee Luke to have a Walkman. Among other things the mouth rings look like evil teeth and spoil the woman’s looks. So unless we’re to believe there’s no dc equivalent of jezebels it’s hard to credit commanders with wanting this. That handmaid was really pretty.

    I did not express this well. Sure you may know how to use a cassette deck but you wouldn’t have been making mix tapes in college. And tapes are still in use. So it has to be alternate timeline, I guess. ok thanks for correcting I really thought it wa SJP with bad hair. (Hulu doesn’t show credits!)

    Serena is getting the Cersei edit, isn’t she. I too thought the dance was a weird fantasy- and it would have made sense since Serena clearly does not feel at home in dc, if she imagined everyone looking st them. But then it was real. she did look alarmed at the home of people now gone, but without dialogue impossible to say for sure. i actually like how much were shown of them because in general in dystopian novels I don’t get NEARLY enough- I wanted more of the capitol and the ordinary people there in The Hunger Games, and I gave up on Darkest Minds series because not enough of the people benefitting, just all rebels. but I wanted MORE. Interesting that they all have teal ball gowns. Does money still exist? The wives seemed rather cynical. They read and complain about men. None of that would fly in Boston. still interested in Mrs Lawrence. Still uninterested in June’s grand plot to see and steal Hannah.

    Wow I saw Mrs Lawrence do weird intake of breath and immediately recognized Sarah jessica Parker. She does not look good with hair that dark. interesting how she said “he curated music” not “he made mix tapes.” What year is this? Someone listening to tapes in college would be my age, 50s, if it happened right now. But isn’t this meant to be the future? And now would June even know how to use a cassette deck?

    THis show makes no sense. We’re jn a world where iPods and mp3s don’t exists since Luke ia out there with a Walkman. But the whole world accepts the existence of gilead? No way. It is only a few years since gilead even began. the visuals of headless Abe and the huge cross would have been a lot more effective if the camera hadn’t lingered on them forever. the mouth staples were scary and though I first thought liquid diet later thought wait. All their teeth will fall out. Why not just take their tongues out? Just as brutal and grounded in reality. Or their vocal cords or something. I felt that it and the statues were driving the episode. This episode was all imagery: nick being saluted, scary, makes no sense. A cross reflected in her eye. Nuremberg like gathering (this has become a cliche). I don’t watch the show for beautiful artistic film shots. i don’t know if I want to keep watching.

    S02.E02: Tell Tale Hearts

    Nicole Kidman will be 52 this week and I think she looks AMAZING. I don't think she looks like wax or her eyes look weird. her jawline is perfect, and unless she's had a facelift (which, no), that's just genetics. I'll be 55 this summer and here to tell you at 52 I did not look that great. MOST women don't. She's totally plausible as a mom of elementary school aged kids. It makes sense to me that she is getting nostalgic for Perry and forgetting the horror. He's been her world for a long time. But seeing him just punching her in the stomach was horrifying. "He salted you." Aw.

    Serena it to me was quite obviously trying to kill her self. Then something made her change her mind. If it were a baptism she would have put her face in the water. She did not. I for one am glad she did not do the star is born ending, because she is by far the most interesting character on the show. Yes, even more interesting than Lawrence, who I believe is not a psychopath. But he doesn’t want to show all his cards. He wasn’t really being cruel asking June to choose. As even I did not realize until the very end, offering her soldiers. June could get Waterford in big trouble and he knows it so it makes sense she’d talk to hima and he has a kind of soft spot for her. re mom and the reading and the walking partner: come ON show. Gilead is only a few years old. Every adult in the world grew up in in time before Gilead. There’s no way those men could possibly believe June has forgotten how to read, what was the point of that? Serena having a mother who is all in on Gilead only makes sense if this show takes place about 70 years from now. the thing with the walking partner. Even if she’s young, she went to high school and everything else in the world before Gilead. We know Gilead can’t have gone on that long because her daughter still a child. aunt Lydia got mean when she couldn’t make it up the steps. Not dementia or concussion just lashing out in embarrassment. dont know where Cora is but guessing she’s safe.

    S03.E02: Mary and Martha

    Lawrence and his wife fascinated me. My take is that while he likes Cora he perceives her as a threat to his safety- and to the safety of his wife. whatever else is going on with him it’s clear he adores his wife. did I dream a moment of lucidity from her?

    Barry

    I didn’t think Barry planted the pin. It just fell off as pins often do. did he kill the Chechens so they wouldn’t deceive him ornwere they just in the way as he went to get Fuches? revealing that it wasn’t ONLY Sally’s shallow male agents who loved the fantasy scene but nice old people and women who can relate. Maybe on some level they all understand it’s a collective fantasy together. That has its own reality. i felt sorry for sally. She’s self absorbed but she did have the insight to rewrite her scene and tell the truth. gersh is one of the most powerful agencies in LA (NY too) I totally believed a junior agent could fill the house particularly if it were called a diversity showcase and people were scared NOT to go lol. i did like that the kid who had said his father was abducted by aliens also told the truth. Gene knows Barry burkman is Barry Block. But I doubt he will simply believe it next season. After all fuches set him up. Still he’ll wonder.

    these prices are fine. $12 for a glass of wine is standard all over New York City.

    Why would Michelle Williams need a vocal coach? She's a legit broadway star and was Sally in Cabaret with Alan Cummings in 2014.
