Soooo looking forward to this but I HATE that it's going to stream on Hulu which means I'm gonna have to watch their endless ads that always ruin my Handmaid's Tale viewing. I thought it was just going to air on FX. UGH.

I think it's hilarious that liberals think the show is OBVIOUSLY too pro-Phyllis, and conservatives think it's OBVIOUSLY anti-Phyllis.

Technically this isn't about the tv show, but it's definitely related! Gloria: A Life was an off Broadway play in 2018 starring Christine Lahti as Gloria Steinem (and Bella Abzug makes an appearance in the show). It's now streaming on the PBS website for the next 10 days.

Variety hosted a conversation featuring the cast and creators. It's about 45 minutes long.

Honestly these Zoom or Skype or whatever they are conversations are the only good thing to have come out of quarantine. They're so much more interesting and enlightening than a 10 minute "interview" on a talk show.
