Episode 10 of The Handmaid’s Tale was titled “Last Ceremony.” It started off with such promise and hope. I mean, who doesn’t love a good dick stomp to a rapist? My hope was quickly deflated though after I realized that Emily’s was not the only last ceremony of the episode.
When I watch The Handmaid's Tale, I think, why am I doing this to myself? Why am I watching a show about this dystopian misery where women are tortured and raped and gay people are killed? WHY? Then Aunt Lydia hands Serena her ass and Elisabeth Moss earns her Emmy and I remember, I watch because this is great fucking art.
This episode (alt titled, "Two Weddings and a Funeral") was the darkest of season 2 and the Atwoodian girl on girl crime continues. According to my slap stats, no one got physically assaulted during this episode entitled "Seeds."
Hey. Erin here. If you listen to our podcasts, you'll know that I'm the portly bossy one. Other things you should know about me.
I was once voted Most Likely To Be Told - "Ah sir, ahh, I mean mam, errr, I mean sir?" - at a Wal-Mart checkout.
I once peed next to Sarah Palin.
I have a friend who had her placenta eaten by wild dogs.
And I currently live in Hawaii with my wife Holly.
One of these things is false. Which one?
Now that we have introductions out of the way, let's get to the point of our blog. We are currently podcasting season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale.
