Tv Season Info

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 (79) | Top Critics (33)

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.

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

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is exuberance in episodic form.

Nov 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Working out its act at 100 miles per hour, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel is uneven - but it still retains that charm that draws so many to her work.

Nov 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | 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.

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.

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.
