Hey guys, I've a little more technical comment about this awesome show. As a focus puller myself, I just want to note what an awesome job the focus pullers have done with the extremely shallow depth of field they've been working with all through S1. I've yet to see S2 and 3, but I'm sure it's same style. Gottfried Pflugbeil and David Orton (A and B Cam respectively), great job!
What's on your mind?
I'm here to let you know that staff have exciting plans for the future of video on Fandom, including the future of what was Featured Video (FV) and what is replacing it.
A replacement for FV, titled The Loop, is set to be a mini-show that will be different for each vertical, highlighting the latest news from topics relating to that vertical. The best bit? These videos will use wiki articles and will encourage users to visit the wikis featured in the videos to find out more.
As a new episode of The Loop will be released weekly, you will see a wide variety of wikis of featured so there is every chance yours will be featured too!
Please see the latest staff blog for more details and feel free to ask me any questions!
Secondly, staff posted a blog about Fandom in 2019 and the amazing things achieved! Here's to a great 2020. :)
Since Serena is the driving force behind the society of Gilead in the first place, and married to Fred, I suppose that's an obvious connection to the top of the hierarchy. But what about others? I.e.; Commander Lawrence and his wife were academic professors before the takeover.
Did the other Commanders and/or their wives share Serena's views? And in doing so, were they instrumental in bringing Gilead about? Or could it have been the other way around? Enough people in power did their part to enstate the republic of Gilead and everything with it, so they earned their positions?
By the way, Serena brought all this about just to have a baby! Maybe she could've had one if she'd not turned society upside-down so much...
Fandom staff posted two important and exciting blogs recently which I wanted to make you aware of!
The title sounds really fancy and complicated, but this boils down to Fandom recommending content you want to see. Fandom has received feedback from users who are receiving recommendations to visit certain wikis they are not interested in.
With this data driven approach, users on a wiki will receive recommendations for new communities to visit based on what typical readers of that subject are interested in. That way you can attract like-minded users to your community and you get to visit other wikis you are interested in!
Please do read the blog for more information. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to let me know!
Templates and scripting
The blog is packed with details so please do give it a read! Also feel free to ask me any questions.
I think I have the correct episode in mind... apologies if not, but I've returned the Season 1 DVDs to the library...
Anyway... before June and Moira end up at the coffee shop, where they find June's credit card won't work, they are out for a jog, and they get a lot of glares and sneers from passersby. There is a brief shot of an older woman with dark hair looking particularly venomous. Is this Aunt Lydia in the time before?
Thanks for any insights.
I am super nervous because I want to leave the new season in the meantime I bought the maid's story for Amazon book and sent it here , so that they print it so I can read and at the same time watch the series on the computer. Who else is the same as me?
I believe that Defred has to unite with the marthas to reveal himself and be able to save all the children and thus be able to flee from that jail they are wearing.
I looked on the map and was wondering, All of the colonies districts can't be affected by radiation as the radiation areas are in green, but what about the rest of the yellow area, does anybody live there?
Is Myrtle Beach apart of gilead because I saw a gilead military base on the map in that area, and it's not in the blue areas.
If a couple is not married and has kids do they get taken, I was wondering because they haven't mentioned it yet in the tv series.
So a friend and I are having a heated debate about whether or not the commanders and their wives can have sex if they have a handmaid. I figured it was just necessary for the couple to abstain for a few days around the Ceremony, but my friend said they never have sex. I have searched for the answer to no avail! Please help!
Because of the toxic climate, were all the animals killed?
Apparently restaurants, spectator sports, TVs....most forms of recreation don't exist in Gilead. Even the commanders...they listen to music...but not much else...Waterford has no games on his laptop?
There may be some information in Luke's newspaper articles shown in his folder at the beginning of episode 3x02 if I'm not wrong. I'm just asking if someone have access to those props (as someone seemed to have access to that Boston Globe page where the massacre of the "terrorist" tri-attack was treated).
How do you think they incorporated those kids into the regime when they have known the former U.S.A for a while?
Do other districts around the continental U.S have handmaids?
If someone living in N.C or Tennessee, or Minnesota be able to escape the non canadian way, into conflict districts, and rebel areas and will there be guardians hunting them down too?
Where do the new women coming to Gilead come from? Kidnapped?
Did anyone else notice the rabbit art and the one picture that could be a "Waterford Down" type hill with rabbits in the nursery?
It would be a fitting easter egg considering the family name and there is another character named, "Warren".
Could a society such as Gilead actually happen in the United States? Would people sit by and let their neighbors be killed or assimilated without raising a finger, until there are no neighbors left? Just an opinion question. It scared me to think about it. TY in advance
