Most of the viewers who watched The Hansmaid’s Tale were too delighted to wait and watch Elizabeth’s next series, The Veil.

Top movie reviewers and moviegoers chimed in on the series almost immediately after its release.

The spy thriller series received a Tomatometer score of 45% green flat, which indicates that only 45% of the viewers were satisfied with it.

It also scored 50% of spilled popcorn, which indicates that the series was rated 3.5 or higher by half of the viewers.

Furthermore, one of the fans was dissatisfied with its two episodes and expressed his feelings on Reddit saying;


Two episodes out of six and all we get is nothing we haven’t seen before on tv with some forced acting by Elizabeth Moss. Whoever thought of putting this show and Homeland in the same sentence has been smoking some heavy s**t.

However, one of its viewers saw the movie from a different perspective and rated it 10/10 for the series. He cleverly reviewed the series saying;

i do not understand the bad reviews at all. So far, this show is very introguing and unique. This is absolutely so much “behind the veil” lol that occurs everyday in our world. I CAN’T WAIT FOR NEXT EPISODES! gIVE IT A CHANCE, YOU WONT REGRET IT.

One of the YouTubers isaagape made a review video about The Veil’s two episodes. She was pretty satisfied with the series.

She explains that the show’s theme is its identity, and the dialogues fit all its characters well.

Elisabeth Moss Breaks The Stereotype of Man Taking the Lead in Most Typical Spy Tale

With the series’ two episodes’ feedback varying greatly, I decided to hop on Hulu and see if it was really worth my time.

Must say, The Veil indeed captivated right up until its bloated end with its enough clever ideas.

Here is an official trailer;

The Veil is a poetic epic-six-part spy thriller that doesn’t try to hide its larger goals. This FX series investigated the extent to which women would go to preserve control over their destinies.

Moreover, it is not your typical spy tale. The theme is hardly concealed as the series puts women in a role often performed by men, allowing that reality to influence the plot.

The explanation of Elisabeth Moss’s role revolves around how she can inflict physical injury, but her tactics don’t include a lot of torture and bloodshed.

Well, based on the two episodes, we can say that she is not the next James Bond charging into every situation; rather, she is a social manipulator.

She lends her support, wins over her targets’ trust, and gets them to open up to her. Because of her skill set, she is tasked with persuading Adela Elidrissi, a possible ISIS agent, to divulge her identity.

The unique storytelling lens highlights the language and visualizes calculated decisions to win over Adela and discover the truth about a possible terrorist danger.

Elizabeth’s delivery style and ability to persuade others influenced me, and I quickly became linked to her character.

Moving forward, the most exciting scenes of the series are when the two ladies, who are mirror images of one another, play a psychological tug of war to accomplish their goals.

The Veil needed these girls to succeed in the goal in the end because of the actions they put in their behavior.

The idea of hidden realities, location, and outstanding acting kept me interested, and I felt that it would continue to find its admiration long after it ended.

Moreover, the show’s least engaging aspects are the other one-dimensional characters, but Marwin and Moss are skilled at what they do.

The two co-stars’ violent actions took the series to a new level.
