I've liked the flashback sequences also. It relieves the over-thinker in me. I always wonder with these sort of shows, at what point does the world start to go mad.

Like the Junkyard people in The Walking Dead, you don't make the decision to dress up as Mad Max rejects, invent your own language and run and hide out in an abandoned Junkyard at the first sight of a zombie

Me too, I thought it happened last week. I saw a zombie, and decided to slap on some facepaint, hammer some spikes into some GridIron shoulder pads and sharpen my pick axe. I then ran through the main street raiding shops and kidnapped some work colleagues I thought would make handy slaves.

Turns out it was just a really sick backpacker. I had to have a pretty awkward conversation with my boss today

Finished watching A Handmaid's Tale. Amazing television.

BTW How gutless was the television industry in not recognising 13 reasons why at the Emmy Awards.

A golden age of television, but if something's too controversial... you get shunned. There were amazing performances in that show, but not a single award nomination.

BTW... SBS On Demand is hopeless.... constantly dropping out at peak times... won't run on my Apple TV when that happens. AND the add in commercials.

The Leftovers equally snubbed.
