Time for a new general chat thread. What are you watching?
Mr 5 has just discovered Aladdin, so I’ve been forced to endure “A Whole New World” over and over.
The second season of Master of None has landed on Netflix, but we’re heading off on a family holiday in a few weeks so are trying not to peek before than.

Oh and can’t wait for The Handmaid’s Tale to start screening on SBS On Demand in early July. It gets rave reviews, and Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, West Wing, Top of the Lake) is just good in everything. It also stars Samira Wiley (Poussey from Orange is the New Black).
If you haven’t read this book, here’s the synopsis: The Handmaid’s Tale is a 10-part series set in a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birth-rate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.
Moss stars as Offred, one of the few remaining fertile women, a woman forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
