Life After Downton - Plum Tired
[Life After Downton, Episode 19] - Let's just admit: it's rough out there in the real world these days. On this episode, the damsels discuss how the current political climate is affecting what we want from pop culture. Sure, season two of The Handmaid's Tale is just as well made as the first, but is the bleak storytelling doing us any good as viewers? And on the new show Dietland, are the feminist messages getting lost in the noise? What kinds of stories about women do we as TV fans hope to see on our screens as the production cycle catches up to the news cycle (if such a thing is even possible)?
In the end, a lively round of One Fabulous Thing reminds us how much art is out there to love and draw inspiration from. So pour yourself a secret glass of the Commander's whiskey and join us for a new episode of Downton Gabby!
