    S01.E06: The Next Episode

    I think McKay would be a better match with Cassie's sister but I suspect her of being secretly in love with Rue.

    Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee

    I absolutely HAVE to know who Jerry and Bridget Everett were talking about!

    I was SO worried that when Christine went into the room marked "Private" she'd find some hurtful deal breaker about Ken. I know he's too good to be true but I need him to stay that way and for the two of them to stay happy and together forever. Her facial expressions when the restaurant owner came over was GOLD! Man, I still can't get over how great an actor Louie Anderson is!

    Ok what the fuck was that. All June all the time. You know what? They might as well allow her to walk around carrying a machine gun at this point. I have to say I liked the scene with the surgeon how he knew her Mom and how chilling that is. She was his colleague then got dumped in The Colonies. That sort of horror is what I want to see in this show.

    This show hates me. On a deep, personal level.

    S03.E07: Under His Eye

    YES to your entire post and a special thanks for bringing up the race issue in this setting as well. I'm not sure what I was supposed to think about June's bizarre scowl/under his eye thing at the end (the execution) Also it really seemed to me that not only was June's behavior well past the suspicious mark but that it didn't even matter because EVERYONE THERE knew this was all about her and what she did.

    S03.E07: Under His Eye

    So that poor Martha died horribly, not because she was trying to save an innocent child but because June wanted to pop in and freak out her daughter for a few minutes? For me, this was the worst ep to date. I think the writers are flailing. What a mess. The scene where the "two thieves" (as the writer of the linked article above perfectly calls them), walked through the ghoulishly abandoned home? This is what this show had to offer from the start. This has been going on since the dawn of time so why not explore this more? Why not present us with deeper more focused psychological exploration of this sort of thing? Which brings me to something that's been driving me nuts since I guess the middle of season two. Why aren't the victims of Gilead angrier?! Seriously. I don't mean the end stage beaten down victims or the ones in the colonies but we keep seeing scenes of survivors who sure have plenty of emotional damage but are physically ok. Tonight we saw the angry outburst that landed Moira and Emily in jail but I really don't understand. It's just not enough. This all happened during a relatively short period of time between social peers and suddenly they take your children and enslave you and abuse you. I'm not seeing enough outrage and elaboration, Glowering June and all that just isn't conveying the dialogue necessary about what's going on. Also I'm sick of not knowing what the bizarro deal with Lawrence is. It's like he's a completely different person in every episode now and I have no clue what his problem is. June told the doomed Martha that he'd get EVERYBODY out of Gilead!

    Oh! I didn't realize that was the bad friend! She was really familiar to me but I thought it was because the actress was. She was so full of herself and condescending to Christine "maybe something in my kitchen will inspire you" etc I LOVED the quest for the right kitchen slogan. It was so serious!

    Of course I want a woman showrunner for The Handmaid's Tale of all things! Why have we never seen Summer in Boston?

    Oh Lord how I hate Penelope. It's not even a fun hate watch! I love how Ken and Christine are especially with each other. I loved how Christine is so AMAZED and appreciative about things like the tapenade etc that Ken assembled! WOW!!! HOW DID YOU DO THAT, KEN!?!?!?? I don't in general have a problem with parents who can afford to give/loan their adult child money for a down payment but Chip is an unemployed rodeo clown with a terrible attitude and life choices so am a bit concerned.

    S01.E02: Stuntin' Like My Daddy

    I'm still boggling at Nate's dad keeping his porn collection basically out in the open like that.

    S01.E02: Stuntin' Like My Daddy

    Nate is terrifying and I'm worried sick about everyone else. Having said that, I think the writers are adults who have no clue about the characters they're writing about so I feel unsafe, to paraphrase Jules. ETA did Nate rape Tyler?

    S03.E04: God Bless the Child

    Huge YES to your entire post. It also brings me to how the hell is Janine still alive let alone allowed anywhere near her baby again???

    S03.E04: God Bless the Child

    How stupid is Luke to show up on TV with a "stolen" baby especially with June still in the colonies and Emily running away. Like there won't be any connection to June with all that let alone the WTF of June straight up admitting to knowing him?!?
