“Let’s move! We go to kill the exorcist legates, and engulf this world in the flames of chaos!”

“Let’s go, everyone! We will purify the Lord of Calamity and take back a beautiful world!”
~ Sorey

The Handmaid’s tale is not only spectacularly shot, superbly acted and written, in the current political climate it is going to be the most relevant tv series for a very long while. It’s amazing just on how many different levels it actually touches so many topics at once (fanaticism, bigotry, misogyny, racism, women’s reproductive rights, homophobia, sexual abuse, militarization of society, rise of tyrants and dictator wannabes etc). Which makes it that more terrifying, because it doesn’t feel like a work of fiction at all. Essential in every regard. Whatever you heard about it, no words can really describe just how amazing and important it really is. I was truly blown away. The perfect anti-dote to the Trump like mentality worldwide (not just USA). Timing couldn’t have been any more perfect.

What kind of Tales blog would I be if I didn’t screen shot the infamous “hot coffee” scene once I got to this point?
