I’ve been putting it off for a long time, but I just did something insane in terms of television viewing and personal mental health.
The Handmaids Tale on Hulu. I read the book. I saw the original movie. I didn’t watch the new show though. Why? Because knowing the story and living in a country with trump in the white house was just too much to deal with. The dystopian story hit a little too close to home.
Well the fascist is gone so I decided to give it a go. I watched the first episode. It is still too close to home. Holy shit is that an ugly story. It’s terrifying and I am still only one episode in. Crap.
I started rewatching Community too in an attempt to lighten the mood. We started binging that show with the kids ages ago but they sort of left me in the dust. I’m on episode five and I already don’t remember ever seeing this one… so there you go. As a graduate of a community college allow me to state publicly that they got everything exactly correct. Like… exactly correct.
