Pick of the Day

The Handmaid's Tale, 10.05pm RTÉ One

Season two of The Handmaid's Tale has been a captivating, if at times gruelling, watch. Continuing on from the events from the first series based on Margaret Atwood's acclaimed novel, the second series has Elisabeth Moss's Offred continuing to suffer in the brutal environs of Gilead.

There have been some truly harrowing scenes, from the colonies where the "unwomen" labour, to the brazen bombing attack by a handmaid. The last episode was one of the most scintillating as Commander Waterford and his wife Serena went on a diplomatic trip to Canada where Nick was able to gather some crucial information, while back at home Offred tried to rally support for her unborn child.

We can't wait to see the fallout from the Canada trip, it looks like Serena's loyalties are going to be severely tested this season...
