September 2, 2020
It is a very special show. Extraordinary music, magnificent acting, like nothing I've ever seen in a comedy series before. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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

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.

Lots of things make TMMM sing, especially the dialogue.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel manages to be both wildly improbable...and utterly plausible.
October 11, 2018
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.
August 25, 2018
[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.
July 27, 2018
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.

The core of the show is the bond between Midge and Susie, who becomes Midge's manager and tough-love sounding board. It's a friendship that ventures, in its intensity, on a love story.

Let's hope that this first season is the beginning of many more, because we all want to see Mrs Maisel triumph, in fiction as well as in real life. [Full review in Spanish]

Sherman-Palladino knows that when you have a fabulous supporting cast, your show can't lose and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a winner.

It's an breakout role for Brosnahan: Best known for playing doomed call girl Rachel Posner on House of Cards, she is positively enchanting here, playing both the happy housewife and bawdy comic to perfection.

[Rachel Brosnahan's] a revelation here, sparkling and full of life. You feel her devastation when Joel leaves her and her exhilaration when she first grabs the mic.

Run -- don't walk -- to the TV and watch it.
December 21, 2017
Midge's meteoric rise strains the bounds of credibility, but although the story references real comics of the time, this is more of an aspirational alternate history.

December 13, 2017
The complicated dynamics of Midge and Joel's relationship are extras to the wonderful solo act that is Midge Maisel's successful foray into comedy. She mines her life for stories, incidents and insights to create a very relatable set each time.
