The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel 2017, 2018

9

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.

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.

Among the show’s many charms is that unlike 99% of comedy shows, the characters in Mrs. Maisel are utterly original.
