‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 struggles with depicting trauma
The good news is that Handmaid’s Tale Season 2 eventually does start to recapture some of the poignancy that made Season 1 an unprecedented phenomenon. The bad news is that it takes about half of the season to start getting there.
To be fair, the near-flawless Emmy and Golden Globe-award winning Season 1 casts a very long shadow. The problem with creating a series that fundamentally changes what we think is possible for a popular TV show (streaming or otherwise) is that you then have to follow it up with a Season 2. And now, audience expectation is at an impossibly high bar.
