I figure we can use a general space to talk about the show. Thoughts so far? Feelings? Comparisons to the book or other adaptations?
The one thing I’m surprised about so far is how little technological surveillance has been used to update the story. They acknowledge the existence of smartphones and that they can be tracked, but I expected more advanced surveillance to be a part of what the Aunts and Commanders would have access to in order to watch the Handmaids. Like, I sort of expected the magazine that Offred gets to read to be updated to an e-reader. Perhaps they’ll touch upon it a little more, later in the series.
