Here’s a lil’ context for the uninitiated: the Hulu original series, based on the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, has emerged into the world amid a veritable tonne of hype. The New York Times has praised its unapologetic take on a horrifically misogynistic society. Variety has praised the series’ equally lush and oppressive direction. And The Atlantic has singled out Elisabeth Moss’ take as Offred, one of the Handmaids forced to bear children for a distinctly male ruling class.
