It's a great show but tough to review because the trauma one feels while watching it is so raw. I watched the first season about a month ago and the same way I couldn't review UNDERGROUND -- I couldn't this show.

Both literally took my voice away. At the same time, I write about these two shows in the same breath because there are parts of The Handmaid's Tale that felt lifted off the slavery experience. Again, this is not my normal review but a recommendation to watch Season 1. 

I bailed halfway into Season 2 because it "reset itself" but might return. 

As far as UNDERGROUND, it's amazing all around. I need to tackle Season 2 but I have to really steel my mind when it comes to binging on that series.

Recommendation: HIGHEST
