I have watched previous episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale as my wife enjoys the programme although I am not so keen as I find all these fairy story dramas a little hard going.
Currently I have watched two episodes of the new series and I have absolutely no idea what is going on and I very much doubt if I will have the faintest idea what has happened even if I get as far as watching the full series.
There are various reasons for my confusion as to what the story is all about, the first being that I have great difficulty translating from American into English which doesn’t help, followed by the fact that I have trouble hearing whispering acting, especially when the background music is as loud as the dialogue and even more trouble with the dramatic scenes when the music completely drowns out the dialogue altogether.
Having said that I am having trouble following the plot, I don’t think it will make a great deal of difference as I haven’t noticed much change in the storyline since the damn thing started.
This leaves me little to add except, “blessed be the fruit.”
