October 17, 2018
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.
October 1, 2018
Some people will choke on its Miracle Whip wish fulfillment, but what a situation, and what comedy.
August 24, 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.
January 31, 2018
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.

Wonderfully engaging.
December 28, 2017
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.

December 27, 2017
[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.
December 26, 2017
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 12, 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.
December 8, 2017
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is about the self-actualization that comes with finding your voice and a means to share it at the same time. I get the sense Sherman-Palladino can relate.
December 6, 2017
The flip side to its vibrancy and warmth is it doesn't resemble reality. But, at this point, that's not what you expect from a Sherman-Palladino production. The trade-off is worth it.
December 5, 2017
Set in a brightly colored version of late 1950s New York - the soundtrack is bursting with show tunes and Sinatra - it's a backhanded riposte to the old canard that women can't be funny.
December 5, 2017
Strong women, lots of energy in charming period piece.

December 5, 2017
It's a riotous delight, tethered by an irresistible lead performance from Rachel Brosnahan.
December 4, 2017
Brosnahan inhabits a sweet spot that winks at Midge's era but doesn't shortchange her sauciness or her vulnerability.
December 1, 2017
Midge's life looks perfect from the outside, but a rising sense of "is this all there is?" hones her comedic edge.
