It's time to cleanse ourselves and confess all the subscriptions services we're not paying for.

Even though there were some significant changes and additions, the first season of The Handmaid's Tale followed the basic structure of Margaret Atwood's classic novel, all the way through to the end of Offred's journey. That means next season will, for better or worse, show us a new chance to explore Gilead — and the world it inhabits. So here's what we'd like season two to tell us about it.
This latest episode of The Handmaid's Tale hit a lot of familiar notes. Offred and the Commander pay a visit to Jezebels? Ofwarren is acting paranoid and scared? Serena Joy is sad she doesn't have a baby? Checks all around. On the surface, it felt a little repetitive — but it was also laying the foundation for next week's season finale, and showing how much Offred has changed.
Last week's episode showed that Hulu's TV adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale isn't afraid to take us outside of Offred's point of view, even if it was previously only in flashback. "The Other Side" has taken things a step further, centring an entire episode around another character, and giving us a new look at what's happening outside Offred's world.
The latest episode of The Handmaid's Tale deals with answering one important question: How does someone cope with having no power? When everything is taken away, how do you keep from falling apart? For Offred, Ofglen and dozens of other handmaids in Gilead, it's about taking whatever you can. Because when you have nothing, every little victory becomes something.
You've read the book, you're anxiously awaiting the show's arrival in Australia, and you've spent the past week repeating "Nolite te bastardes carborundorum, bitches!" Hulu's excellent adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale is equal parts invigorating and infuriating — and its themes couldn't be more eerily timely. Here's 10 works that capture that same feeling.
I have a few beefs with Hulu's adaptation of the notable novel that has set many a school girl on a path to feminism and rejection of fuckbois. There's obviously my disappointment with Serena Joy's transformation from spackled mess of a Tammy Faye icon to coiffed Ivanka Trump twin (mainly because I want to see Yvonne Strahovski in an '80s church lady bouffant), but my largest beef with the show is with the lack of a certain element near and dear to every chef's heart: Butter.
Video: The Defenders trailer gave you a team of foul-mouthed adults with bad coping skills, and now the first look at Runaways seems to indicate that its a lighter teen equivalent. Less binge drinking, similar amounts of angst, and a whole lot more mummy and daddy issues. Also, one of these kids is clearly an outspoken feminist.
The first three episodes of The Handmaid's Tale are now available on Hulu in the US. Though an Australian broadcaster has not yet been announced, we've already given our thoughts on the series, which remains mostly faithful to Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian novel of the same name. But there are some changes, some big, some small, that separate the two — and we've broken them down for you here.
At 2011's San Diego Comic-Con, a lucky few got to see the first attempt at a TV adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's cult-favourite IDW horror fantasy comic. That pilot never got picked up, but Locke & Key has been playing the second-chance sweepstakes ever since — and it looks to have paid off.
