    You watch this, and yet can't take Chernobyl? Weird.

    I'm the opposite - I've just pre-ordered Chernobyl (it's out next month). But HMT? Every time I go into FOPP with the lads they offer to buy it for me and every time I've refused. Reading it was depressing enough...I can't bring myself to watch it.

    It's a cautionary tale. Of course the people who most need to watch it are the ones who won't.

    Just watched the last ep of S2 before I start the next season and omg it was as heartbreaking as I remembered. June has had just about enough! Cannot wait to see what she does next.

    So happy Emily got away and hope we see more of her next season, I don't want her story to be over. Her wife and child are in Canada so I hope we see them reunited.

    Just broke my third re-watch of Lucifer 1 - 4 to finish watching Good Omens and I wish I hadn't. DT gurned all the way through it - it was like watching a pantomime. The book was much better. Hell - the Good Omen X Lucifer fan-fic I'm reading is better!...I'm going back to Luci...

    Ep 1 was tremendous.
    Spoiler:
    Emily escaped with June's baby. I was in tears when she walked through the hospital and everyone applauded. Loved Serena burning down the house, 'burn mother****er' and the ending, when June gets Lawrence as her new master and she says 'you're not going to be any trouble are you?' and she replies 'no sir' and has that smile on her face

    Just when you think it can't get any more grim S3 E6. The handmaids are silenced.

    I'm not there yet. I was hoping S3 was going to get a bit more positive

    I'm hoping for a positive ending too. The book talks about the end of the regime so we know it's not a dynasty.

    As I said, I found the book grim. I'm still avoiding the TV series like the plague.

    I'm watching Season 3 but I'm taking it really slow. It's been really good so far. Having not read the novel, I always question their ability to get the plot going without it being boring and I am being stood corrected each season.

    I've just watched episode 9 which I thought was an amazing episode. Some of this season's episodes have been all over the place and verging on the ridiculous, so I'd say it's a very mixed season.

    I've seen about a half of it and they always take it slow. The season finale is what reels me in each time so we'll see.
