Yes! I, too, am considering signing up for Hulu just to watch this. Do you know if they have a free trial period?

The Handmaid's Tale is a powerful book - highly recommend reading it, if you haven't. I remember it was made into a movie in the 90s - I think it starred Natasha Richardson, Robert Duvall and Faye Dunaway - I thought the movie was very good. I'm looking forward to the series - I got the impression that it was airing in Canada on a cable network - I hope so since i don't subscribe to Hulu.

Margaret Atwood is a great writer. I've read a few of her books. Such depth and imagination. I heard there was a huge spike in sales of the Handmaid's Tale right after the 2016 election.

Yes, there is a free 30 day trial of HULU which I signed up for. My daughter shares her Netflix account with me so I will most likely continue my HULU account to share with her. I saw some shows on HULU that I really do enjoy.

Great! I will just have to binge watch the show in 30 days because I don't want to pay for Hulu. I'm a bit salty that it used to be free!

Yes, I remember the movie. I read the book after I saw the movie. I don't subscribe to Hulu and might have to look into it.

This book really cemented feminism and its importance for me ... I think I was in middle or high school when I first read it. I still remember the plot so clearly. I can't wait to watch it.

Shall we discuss on this thread? Or shall we wait until our northern neighbors get to see the 1st episode, then we can start our discussion then?

LOL at those debating on getting Hulu to watch; I considered doing the same!

I don't object to starting the discussion. I think most of us here know the basic plot and April 30 is not that far away..
Spoiler alerts can always be highlighted if someone doesn't want to see what happens.
