Audience Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1

  • Jul 07, 2021
    This is about as fine as a TV production that you can make. Flawless.

    I'm going to be a heretic after this review, pretty sure. I tried to watch this show. It was described as a funny story of a strong woman seeking her place in a world which didn't want her to have a dream. What I saw was different. It is the story of a woman who abandons her children - who are doubtlessly still reeling from their parents' divorce - to pursue a career of onstage sarcastic ranting which is not all that funny. She has to be a sociopath to leave her kids behind. Her husband is no better. If you get the New York Jewish variety of humor, which to a lot of people isn't that humorous, you might like that aspect, though I thought this show was pretty thin on gags for being promoted as a comedy. This show makes me wonder if some writer was trying to glamorize and justify their own decision to do the same thing as Mrs. Maisel, leaving behind the children who needed them to go for a show-biz job. If I want to see a show about two people chasing their personal success at the expense of others, I'll just watch Breaking Bad. They did it better, anyway.

    The whole show to me revolves around the somewhat sparse moments when Midge goes into her routines. They're so good. I crave them. The drama surrounding it is amazing too, don't get me wrong, but the sense of elation I feel alongside her at her highs on stage are some of the most captivating moments of TV I've seen in a long time. Must watch.

    Loved the characters, the quick-paced banter and the set designs and costumes were fabulous!

    Amy Sherman-Palladino has done it again. After Gilmore Girls and Bunheads, she now has launched a series with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which takes the drama genre into completely new spheres. This series brings with it completely new characteristics: Beginning in the 1950s, Mrs. Maisel convinces above all with her beautiful pictures of old and the not yet mainstream New York, nostalgic music that almost implores you to sing along and its outstanding characters. The cast of this series is absolutely stellar. Led by Rachel Brosnahan, who plays main character Midge Maisel, who is on an emancipation train, exactly as it should be: Funny, relatable and the great embodiment of a strong female role. This latter is also portrayed by Alex Borstein as Midges agent Susie, albeit in a much more ruthless and at times even funnier way. Tony Shaloub as Midge's father Abe shows in his TV comeback that he is so much more than Monk. Marin Hinkle as his wife Rose and Michael Zegen as Midge's struggling husband Joel also reveal hardly any weaknesses in their hilarious but yet profound performances. Something that also comes to light in this first season is the role of Stand Up Comedy at this time. Contrary to today, where Stand Up is a bit under the radar, people seem to have needed it a lot in the postwar period. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is much more than a comedy with a lot of humor. The dramatic elements paired with the path of our leading actress make the series enormously binge worthy, because you really want to know what happens next on Midge's journey. Gladly more of that!

    Maisel feels like an old comfort and a fresh idea simultaneously; it's most notably elevated by its sublime cast and sharp writing.

    This is the one of the most marvelous thing I´ve seen this year. This life.

    Me encantó! La ambientación e interpretación de cada uno de los personajes no podría ser mejor. Excelente retrato de la época y del perfil y sentir de las familias judías. La música muy buena. Es una serie muy entretenida. La recomiendo!

    From Amy Sherman-Palladino comes the quirky period drama The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, an original Amazon series. Season 1 follows Miriam Maisel, whose husband leaves her for his secretary, as she adjusts to being a single mother and explores the New York comedy scene after letting loose one night at a comedy club and being approached by a manager who offers to help her launch a career as a comic. Rachel Brosnahan leads the cast as the titular Mrs. Maisel and has incredible charm and charisma that lights up the screen. And the supporting cast, Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, Bailey De Young, and Kevin Pollak, are also really good. Additionally, Amy Sherman-Palladino's snappy and quick-witted dialog gives the show a lighthearted, satiric tone, and the eccentricities of the time-period are played up pretty well without being too obvious or on-the-nose. However, the episodes go on a little too long and don't always have a clear focus. Yet while it has some problems, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel delivers a solid first season.
