Bruce have you seen Elizabeth Moss in "Top of the Lake China Girl" ?..Set in Sydney and NZ...That is a cracker. I'm not up on Handmaid's Tale but she is up there with the best.

I think I've watched this but confused as I don't remember it being called China Girl at the end.

Re: The Handmaid's Tale Series 4

When my daughter lived here, she used to watch this. I didnít like it, as every time l looked up at the television, there was something horrific going on.

I think, if you like The Handmaidenís Tale, you are probably a fan of Game Of Thrones as well?

To me....both horrific and l couldnít watch them...

Re: The Handmaid's Tale Series 4

Much too gory for me too, I turned it off before the end.

I also think a certain kind of person could be influenced in the wrong way by such repeated brutality.
I won't be watching it again.

Re: The Handmaid's Tale Series 4

Have read the book - left me a bit bewildered and rather disturbed - but then Margaret Attwood often has that effect on me!

Bur isnít that Margaret Atwood envisaged , horrific goings on?
I saw Margaret Atwood in an interview and she said there was nothing in the book that hadn't happened already somewhere in the world.

Canít speak for others but Iíve never been in the least interested in what GOT has to offer let alone being a fan !
