Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she's ever wanted--the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent--one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy...a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson's couch.

Critic Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 1

All Critics (81) | Top Critics (37)

It's a wonderful showcase for star Rachel Brosnahan, who snaps off the one-liners (provided by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, of Gilmore Girls fame) as if she were born to play this character.

It's a stylish, fun show that is neither punishing nor idiotic, an escape from reality that is tethered, ever so lightly, to reality.

Top Critic

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is exuberance in episodic form.

Nov 29, 2017 | Full Review…

You kind of want to tell the show to just relax. And when it does, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel makes for an intriguing mix.

Mrs. Maisel can -- yup -- be chatty to the point of exhaustion, and a little can go a long way. But what's here is worth savoring and, if you can get past the verbal gymnastics, worth the trip.

Top Critic

With a much-needed message for our times, a talented ensemble cast, and the period appeal of a Mad Men-with-a-feminine-flair production design, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is well on its way to becoming the next obsession for Gilmore Girls devotees.

Top Critic

The result is strange: a series written, performed and directed with an impeccable verve, which never hooks at all because the central character never seems to be in trouble.

Jul 27, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm happy to see Amy Sherman-Palladino at the helm of a new show that's shockingly far less tone deaf than Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

Feb 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Brosnahan's performance alone is good enough to warrant watching the pilot, and Gilmore Girls fans will be happy to see Sherman-Palladino's sharp writing is still in full effect.

Oct 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Some people will choke on its Miracle Whip wish fulfillment, but what a situation, and what comedy.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

[The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is] perfectly crafted with beautiful costume design, an old-timey song opening every episode, witty writing and jokes both funny and brazen.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

The portrayals of characters of color in Mrs. Maisel are about as lazy as you can get, if not a bit regressive.

    Binge-worthy season which is tightly written, well performed and great to watch.

    Когда начал смотреть сериал, не ожидал, что все настолько будет круто. Юмор, актеры, сюжетные повороты и развитие - держит тебя в напряжении. Операторская работа твердая 8.5 из 10. Отдельное спасибо Тони Шэлуб♥️

  • Dec 30, 2019
    Engaging and laugh out loud funny.
  • Dec 27, 2019
    This show is quite simply the most well choreographed show I have ever seen. It moves like a fine tuned broadway performance. It zips by and keeps you glued to the screen. The performance by Rachel Brosnahan is remarkable. She eats up any scene she is in. You cannot take your eyes off the screen.
  • Dec 27, 2019
    Funny, fresh and quirky. Rachel Brosnahan is excellent in the role. The semi-caricature of elite New York can be grating at times.
  • Dec 26, 2019
    There are many good and bad things about the show but to me what turned it into a bad show is how bad the stand up is. Its like having a show about a singer that cant sing, thats a issue
