Re: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel needs her own thread!

Just started watching season 1. So I'm pretty far behind.

After 5 episodes, I love it.

Season 2 was good, but it was a step down from S1.

BTW, just read something that said Lenny Bruce dude is just crushing it in this role. Lenny's daughter is delighted with his performance; and a tv critic writes that if you watch that Steve Allen scene alongside the original Lenny+Steve bit, it's even more remarkable.

Just started season 2 and it is a very well-written show. Deserves every award it gets.

Re: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel needs her own thread!

Would have bet from the show description that this wouldn't be something I liked but decided to give a shot because of the rave reviews and because I'm always looking for something that I can watch with my wife that we would both enjoy (Gilmore Girls did not do it for me).

Glad I did, really enjoying this. Thanks OP!

Grunch.

Trying to convince my bf to start watching this with me. What shows can I use to compare it with?

Re: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel needs her own thread!

I guess I'd compare it to Cheers, Mary Tyler Moore, Simpsons, Frasier....basically any comedy that wins every Emmy in sight.

Then add swear words, which are even funnier.

Ok so I convinced him to give it a try and he was pretty unimpressed the first half of the episode but was sold by the end

Re: The Marvelous Mrs Maisel needs her own thread!

Just finished S2 after seeing recommendations here & in some other places.

Amazing show. Sure S1>S2, but only slightly because imo S2 ended really strong.

I love almost everything about this show, tbh I dislike some plotlines with the parents, but I can live with it because without it the interactions with Midge & them wouldn't be so great.

Lead actress is amazing. I'm actually going to check out her other stuff, I need more! The jokes are mostly amazing. It must be very hard to write fictional standup scenes, but the writers are doing a really good job.

We can talk without spoilers now right?

*I think Midge not marrying the doctor was not really a surprise. I did not make the connection during the season, but thinking back on it they showed the relationship in a way that you were pretty sure that Midge wasn't in love with him, but he was crazy about her. After the opening scenes of the last episode of S2, it was pretty clear where it was going.

*Agree Sophie hiring Susie is weird and might not be a good idea, and doesn't make much sense. The Sophie-character is set up to look like she mostly cares about her wealth, and not at all about all the other crap. I guess I'll wait on judgement until we see where it goes.

*Is there some sort of legal scenario possible where the parents can get a fake divorce, and the house "lease" is transferred to Rose, so that Abe can quit his job and they can still keep the house? It's the only scenario that made sense to me with what we've seen so far.
