Will be in Netflix from 3 November - can't wait!

Can it be as good as The Handmaid's Tale? I hope so.

That's annoying.
I'm sure it will be really good and I shall enjoy it.
But the plan was that we were only going to get Netflix for the free trial month and just binge-watch the things we wanted to see then cancel. We didn't manage to get it all watched so have paid for September too while we catch the last few episodes. Now they are going to start releasing more good stuff just to keep me paying. hmphf. This is unreasonable.

Oh my word, thank you for the heads up.

Oo, marvellous. Thanks! Loved the book.

I've started watching this and it is really good, three episodes in.

I watching it on the CBC, in Canada. I've read that it will be on Netflix in November but I don't know which countries' Netflix that refers to. Keep an eye out.

Trying to download this on my Kindle to read before watching on Netflix but encountering some technical issues. Grrr. Is it a long one or short like Handmaid's Tale?

Elendon Fri 03-Nov-17 15:51:58

The book is my favourite top ten books I've read. Thanks for the hat tip. Will now join Netflix.

Elendon Fri 03-Nov-17 16:04:03

The book is a long book, but you will be gripped.

FlexTimeCheekyFucker Fri 03-Nov-17 16:20:02

I've got it now. Looking forward to it.

bonbonours Fri 03-Nov-17 19:11:07

I'd never heard of this but now got the book and llooking forward to watching it too.

Cherrypi Fri 03-Nov-17 19:18:04

Ooh thanks for telling us.

One of my favourite Margaret atwood's, all the more interesting as it's based on a true story. I thought the did she or didn't she was done so well.

I’ve started watching it and it’s really good. ‘Enjoying’ it as much as you can with the sort of thing.

Only bugbear really is the way/how it’s been filmed. It’s got a kind of soft focus look that’s reminiscent of a Channel 5 afternoon movie confused

I think it's very very slow, really want to like it though

Desperate to see this. Has anyone found it on the Internet?

Andylion Sun 05-Nov-17 16:37:03

Happy, it’s likely blocked if you’re outside Canada, but give this a try.

Gonna give this a go tonight. Can't wait. I need something new after finishing Ozark.

Elendon Mon 06-Nov-17 10:03:05

I liked it. I had some disappointments, will not say because it would be a spoiler, but I found it very original to the book and overall it was worth watching.

You can sign up to Nexflix and get it free for a month, then cancel. Personally, I think a tenner a month whilst on freeview is worth it for the extra - prices start from a fiver a month on Netflix.

I also watched Mindhunter as well.

Thanks for the link. It is blocked in the UK. I might have to go down the Netflix route then.
