The Handmaid’s Tale rewinds the tape, then hits record on a bewildering episode The Handmaid’s Tale rewinds the tape, then hits record on a bewildering episode

There are moments of ambiguity in “Unknown Caller,” another beautifully filmed, well-acted episode of The Handmaid’s Tale that falls apart like tissue paper in the rain the second you attempt to look beyond those things. Those moments are like signal flares. (Here! Here’s the show, over here!) Some of them even hold…

Hey Patton Oswalt, is a hot dog a sandwich? Hey Patton Oswalt, is a hot dog a sandwich?

The Takeout would like to officially voice our hope that someone will #SaveAPBio, and not just because Patton Oswalt so keenly hopes it will happen. Though Oswalt is undeniably biased—he plays the long-suffering Principal Durbin on the Mike O’Brien-created sitcom—he’s also clearly passionate about this thoughtful,…

The Handmaid’s Tale revisits old territory in good ways and bad The Handmaid’s Tale revisits old territory in good ways and bad

Janine, a woman driven to a place of sweetness and singular focus by extreme hardship and physical and psychological abuse, seems to vibrate in place. She’s guileless, all raw emotion and pure need, with so much love pouring forth that to look at her can be difficult. This is not a world built for such a person, even…

Mountain Dew created a soda designed to pair with KFC’s Original Recipe chicken Mountain Dew created a soda designed to pair with KFC’s Original Recipe chicken

It’s been 15 years since Mountain Dew first unleashed Baja Blast on the unsuspecting public, a partnership with Taco Bell that was a first for the vividly-colored soft drink brand. But now the Dew has dared to dance the wicked dance again, this time with KFC, unstoppering the cork on a soda that was created to pair…

Amazon testing self-serve Starbucks lattes in self-serve stores Amazon testing self-serve Starbucks lattes in self-serve stores

Fellow humans: If taking out your phone while on the train, placing an order for a double tall vanilla latte, then grabbing it from the counter when you arrive at Starbucks seems like entirely too much trouble, Amazon would like your attention. Business Insider reports that the monolithic corporation has begun…

The women of The Bold Type surprise themselves in a refreshingly awkward finale The women of The Bold Type surprise themselves in a refreshingly awkward finale

“Breaking Through The Noise” shouldn’t work. The plot does all sorts of things that rarely succeed—twists that come from nowhere, characters acting in ways that seem out of character, some moments of anti-climax, loads of implausibility, the list goes on. Yet it does, because a lot of those things are also pretty true…

McDonald’s is hemorrhaging French fries and it’s Kawhi Leonard’s fault McDonald’s is hemorrhaging French fries and it’s Kawhi Leonard’s fault

In last night’s loss to the Golden State Warriors, the Toronto Raptors hit eight three-pointers. It’s bad news for Toronto fans (though not too bad—they’re still up one game on the Warriors), but probably pretty great news for Ontario McDonald’s locations. That’s because last year, McDonald’s signed a sponsorship…

Designated Survivor can say “fuck” now Designated Survivor can say “fuck” now

“No more fucking,” Lorraine Zimmer (Julie White) says to two members of President Tom Kirkman’s team, after they have, in fact, fucked. It’s a surprising, lively moment, a moment of bracing frankness, and it briefly throws the show off-center. Suddenly, there are people in that room—not exposition-delivering machines,…
