She really better get nominated. She was mindblowingly good in these first three eps. Her problem in S3 was that she never had an outright “tape,” whereas she already has three this year, lol, and we haven’t even gotten to her upcoming seven-minute monologue.May 1, 2021 at 1:43 pm #1204238377
well heroic is the least liked episode of the whole show on imdbMay 1, 2021 at 2:03 pm #1204238403
Just because it was shit doesn’t make it not a tape hahaMay 1, 2021 at 2:18 pm #1204238431
“Heroic” was, without a question, one of the worst episodes I’ve seen from an acclaimed show. That was truly awful but Elisabeth was definitely baity as hell in it. If she had been nominated, she more than likely would’ve submitted that. Like forwardswill said, that episode was the epitome of Emmy tape.May 2, 2021 at 8:59 am #1204239243
I watched the three episodes and now I’m emotionally wrecked. Another great season from THT, I love this show!May 2, 2021 at 9:46 am #1204239300
They sure do love this Heaven is a place on earth song.
It’s bound to become the series anthem isn’t it?

Watched the 3 episodes yesterday and wow I didn’t know this show could still shock me but it sure as hell did. Looking forward to the rest of the season, judging from how they withheld the last 2 episodes from everyone I’m expecting something even more shocking or huge than episode 3.May 2, 2021 at 3:11 pm #1204239735
Nah, they are just unfinished. Even the train in my screener for the third episode looked very different than the one that you got to see.May 3, 2021 at 2:44 am #1204240271
I put off watching Episode 3 for the longest of time knowing it’ll be torture porn. Elisabeth Moss directed the hell out of it but Bruce Miller’s script was terrible, and I don’t say this lightly. Moss’ ability to set the mood for the scenes imo were what stood out. I loved the way she chose to film the scene in the elevator in particular, building tension. However, everyone knows June isn’t about to die; not with her titanium thick plot armor. As a result, what should have been an anxiety inducing episode felt like a slog. I have often looked past the plot holes in the past, especially in Season 3, and even defended Heroic, but the last ten minutes of this episode were just ridiculous. Not to mention, how do they have so much security escorting June around her torture chamber but only have a driver and Aunt Lydia to escort the Handmaid’s towards the end? Not only do they kill four characters they spent no time giving dimensions to, they add that final scene to make you feel sorry for them. The whole name scenario was already done in a much better way in Season 2 and felt like a very cheap way to tug at the audience’s heartstrings. Additionally, I hate it when the show is internally inconsistent: Lydia says the Handmaid’s are more precious than ever and watches as the guard continuously shoots them? Ridiculous. One of the things that drew me to the show initially was how grounded it was. Even though Season 2 had it’s flaws, it still felt realistic. Season 3, and now Season 4 just seems aimlessly rehashing same plot points just to make the show run for longer than it needs to. The writers need to stop insulting the talent of everyone involved and the audience by giving us one good final season after this.May 3, 2021 at 3:58 am #1204240323
It was an okay 3-episode premiere, this show for me is a parody of it was once so i just tend to not put my expectations high
But the writing was awful, especially episode 3.
Elisabeth Moss is good as always, but for now I’ll give the MVP to Samira Wiley.
