So my very favorite book the Handmaid's Tale is being made into a Hulu miniseries. It premieres in nine days. I'm wondering if I wrote Hulu and asked very nicely if they'd let me watch it like. Right. Nao. I've watched the trailers so many times, heck, I bought the special edition of the audio book (already owned the regular version) just to get the few extra tidbits at the end. (And, if you listened to the special edition, was it just me or were there hints at a sequel????)

So anyway, just geeking about the show and waiting for it to come out so I can see how they did. There are already a few things in the trailers that I'm like WTFBBQ that were NOT in the book (something with Serena Joy and celebrating Gilead??). Also, as much as I adore Samira Wiley and cannot wait to see her Moira, I'm wondering how/if they'll address the (unfortunately under-explored in the book) subplot of racial injustices also perpetuated by the Gileadeans if black women are allowed to be handmaids. But most of me is like, fuck it, Samira Wiley is just one of the best actresses out there right now.

Anyone else foaming at the mouth waiting on this to come out?
