While the show will be released all at once on Netflix, Elisbeth doesn’t recommend binge watching the series.
“I think you actually can binge-watch it, I just think that it’s important in a show like this to watch, step away and think about it. Every episode is so jam-packed with so much that I think it would almost be a shame to overdose too quickly on it. I think it’s something to be enjoyed and savored. It’s filled with nuance, it’s complicated,” she told USA Today.

“I think our generation has taken our rights for granted,” Elisabeth shared.
“The idea that they would be taken away didn’t occur to us for a very long time,” Elisabeth added. “And I think that for sure there’s a rise in my generation of feminism. The wave is coming back as we’re faced with things being taken away from us that we thought we would always have – reproductive rights and all that. For me I’ve definitely become more aware and more active in the last few years.”

Elisabeth Moss has got a brand new series coming to Hulu called The Handmaid’s Tale, and she doesn’t want you to watch it all at once when it arrives on April 26.
“I think you actually can binge-watch it, I just think that it’s important in a show like this to watch, step away and think about it,” the 34-year-old actress expressed (via USA Today). “Every episode is so jam-packed with so much that I think it would almost be a shame to overdose too quickly on it. I think it’s something to be enjoyed and savored. It’s filled with nuance, it’s complicated.”
“It’s something where you may need a second to step back and think about what you’ve seen,” Elisabeth continued. “I also think it’s important to not lose that sort of fun appointment television kind of thing, where you can talk about it the next day at the water cooler and everyone analyzes it and looks forward to the next installment. That’s something I hope doesn’t go away.”
