    I just watched all three seasons in a row. S1 was great and a pretty good adaptation of the book. Moss was fantastic and all the long close-ups of her face actually served to tell the story. Very impressive. S2 was still good, though not as consistent as S1 imo. The best part about it was the ever changing dynamic between June and Serena. But S3 really went in a weird direction. So many things made no sense and it felt as if by now June could shoot a Commander on 5th Avenue without having to fear any consequences. And at the end she seems to have developed a full Moses complex. I'm kinda worried about where the show will go from here.

    BTW, I just started Atwood's "The Testaments", the sequel to "The Handmaid's Tale". So far I like it and I was surprised that she incorporates elements from the TV show in her story, like baby Nicole.

    They say in this interview that Atwood herself told them to name the baby Nichole (1:39).

    They can probably stretch The Testaments out over three seasons.
