Show Rundown: In this week’s episode, we are getting ready for the biggest movie season of the year with our Summer Movie Preview. Wil Wilkins of the NetHeads podcast on the Smodcast Network will be joining us as we share the three movies we’re most looking forward to this summer. In our segment segment, we review the new 10-part Hulu miniseries “The Handmaid’s Tale.” We will try to make the conversation fun, because what’s not fun about a 10-hour miniseries about a future in which women don’t have rights, right? And finally, we will end our show with what we’re dorking out about this week, including “The Gong Show” and the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why.”

Topic 2: The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu

The 10-part miniseries “The Handmaid’s Tale” debuted last week on Hulu. Based on the 1985 book by Margaret Atwood, the miniseries stars Elisabeth Moss, Joseph Fiennes, Samira Wiley and Alexis Bledel from Gilmore Girls, and is set in a dystopian near-future in which women have no rights. Most women are infertile in this future, but there is a handful of women who can still have children. They are forced to have babies for wealthy and powerful couples. I believe one of the characters actually refers to themselves as “two-legged wombs.” Elisabeth Moss is our narrator and main character, Offred, whose husband is murdered and 8-year-old daughter taken away. We see in flashbacks how we got to this future, and it’s almost scarier to me than the future which women are forced to have babies, but it’s more recognizable. It seems familiar. “They can’t do that. This is blow over.” I’ve said those things, or someone has said them to me. It’s chilling.
