The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel 2018 / Now On Amazon Prime

9.0

Refreshing, classy, and absolutely hilarious — The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a real triumph.

Set in the 1950s, this is the story of a housewife and mother who, to everyone but herself, seems to fit very well into the patriarchal ideas of a woman of that era. In reality, she is a witty, funny, and strong woman — and someone who is willing to act on those attributes. After a series of events involving her mediocre cheating husband, she decides to become a stand-up comedian.

The costumes and the mastery with which 50s New York is portrayed are what really did it for me. Everything is so beautiful, so much fun, yet so gim. It’s the most satisfying to watch Ms. Maisel navigate all of it, with a few serious laughs here and there, and riveting dialogue.

If you want to experience a master class on comic timing, and how to build outlandish but plausible comic characters, this is a show for you. The first episode may or may not pull you in, but stick with it. Towards the end of this series there are moments than rank with some of the best on trkevision.
Among the show’s many charms is that unlike 99% of comedy shows, the characters in Mrs. Maisel are utterly original.
