Book Spoilers Abound

SPOILER ALERT: Kelly Molly share their reaction to the news that Hulu is producing a second season of The Handmaid's Tale. HERE BE BOOK SPOILERS.

Episode 1.5 Faithful

Kelly Molly's loins are in a tizzy during this week's recap of Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. After a few back in time comments about previous episodes, they wonder why Hulu couldn't partner with a real magazine for this episode, welcome Shannon back again, write a few poems, discuss several instances where men are very useful indeed, defy the haters, discover music even more pretentious than jazz, and play a classic game of "which rapist would I prefer?" If your Co ...

Episode 1.4 Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum

Kelly Molly bond over jingles they sing and their talking to men voices in this recap of The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu. They counsel self-care while watching the Margaret Atwood adaptation, embrace Action Offred, make fun of Christian marketing, escalate Boxwatch Butterwatch 2017, come up with lots of ridiculous Handmaid names, wonder why there's no smartphones or fertility drugs in Gilead, and celebrate the return of Shannon. Make like a Handmaid and always have a partner, and get your partner ...

Episode 1.3 Late

Recovering actors/comedians Kelly Molly are finally caught up with the first three episodes of Hulu's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale! It's a brutal episode, and tough to be glib about, but luckily everyone has a chance to meet Shannon this episode--you'll see what that means later. Otherwise, much is made of mismatched militia colors, owls, incongruous Match.com commercials during the show, Elisabeth Moss' truly heinous beige sweater, SNL's return after Congress was slaught ...

Episode 1.2 Birth Day

Although Hulu punked Kelly Molly by dropping the first 3 eps of The Handmaid's Tale at once, Kelly Molly aren't even mad. Well, Molly is mad about this episode's hotly contested Simple Minds/Breakfast Club music cue, but Kelly thinks it's brilliant. They are also mad about sapiosexuals, and they wonder if Goop survived the Gilead coup, explain the Red All Over drinking game, parse out why Gilead hates Catholics, debate the color of the Wives' dresses, try to get to 5k followers on Twitter, gus ...

Episode 1.1 Offred

Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale has finally dropped, and Kelly Molly are HERE. FOR. IT. They gush over the first episode, which is quite possibly the most beautiful hour of television ever, and agree that pop culture has enough ethnic cleaning stories, get squicked out by Joseph Fiennes committing a disgusting act, reminisce over IM away messages of yore, marvel at the way Aunt Lydia goes full Trunchbull, and decide that Handmaiding for John Legend Chrissy Teigen would be a sweet gig. Heaven is boo ...

IX Night/X Soul Scrolls/XI Night/XII Jezebel's

In the third chunk of mega-chapters of The Handmaid's Tale, Kelly Molly live to put another suitcase in another hall, shame anyone who doesn't like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, recast Steve Buscemi as the Commander, defy any other Handmaid's Tale podcast to cover as much ground as this one, advise people to avoid catching feelings in a dystopia, call out internalized femme-phobia, clock more sardonic wit from Margaret Atwood, compliment each other on being cute, assure everyone that networking doe ...

V Nap/VI Household/VII Night/VIII Birth Day

In the second chunk of four mega-chapters of The Handmaid's Tale, Kelly Molly realize that everybody dies, take a pork ball break, discuss what goes when the cervix is soft, name their vaginas (aka "second faces"), confirm that Margaret Atwood is a gangsta of prose, hate on sci-fi that includes the devil, express concern about Joseph Fiennes' casting in the Hulu series, head off La Leche League at the pass, establish who they'd bang in Harry Potter, and wonder if men think at all.

I Night/II Shopping/III Night/IV Waiting Room

Kelly Molly cover the first four mega-chapters of The Handmaid's Tale, and along the way they promote their other podcasts, discuss the Bible, America Pacifica, The Red Tent, and many other books, identify the previous owner of Kelly's copy of the book, shoutout the lesbian stuff in Black Swan, speculate about how the Hulu adaptation might handle things, and agree that Margaret Atwood is *very* sardonic.

A chilling vision of things to come

Kelly Molly prime the pump and pass the ammunition for their upcoming recaps of Hulu's adaptation of "The Handmaid's Tale." They talk about their first experiences with Margaret Atwood's novel, a bunch of other books, and wonder if they are currently living in Gilead.
