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.

It's a shame, though, that the people who would most appreciate the show will spend more time scratching their heads than laughing, as Mrs. M repeatedly topples off the comedic knife edge it so eagerly wants to walk.

This late-1950s dramedy -- which uses a fictional point of entry into the real-life stand-up scene of the era -- is too stagey and precious in the telling to merit consistent applause.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will leave viewers cold.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.7/10

[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.
November 29, 2017
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

If anything, this is really a show about a woman finding her voice in a world that doesn't want her to. She just happens to be accomplishing this through standup, and it's truly a great thing to see.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel manages to be both wildly improbable...and utterly plausible.

Amazon's latest original is an irresistibly sharp comedy throwback to a vibrant fairytale New York.

Sherman-Palladino knows that when you have a fabulous supporting cast, your show can't lose and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a winner.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

And, almost exactly 365 days after that Stars Hollow event, AS-P has gifted fans with an entirely new series: Amazon's Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, whose pilot includes one of my favorite scenes of 2017.

Run -- don't walk -- to the TV and watch it.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is something different. It's not better than the "comedies" which Amazon is known for, but it is funnier.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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.
March 17, 2017
The exceedingly charming pilot for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is an Amy Sherman-Palladino joint through and through, featuring rapid-fire dialogue peppered with pop culture references and eccentric, endearing characters.

The pleasures of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel lie less in the stand-up-what passed for outrageous in the postwar period seems downright quaint in the age of Ali Wong and Amy Schumer-than in the mise-en-scène of Midge's life.

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.

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.

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.
November 29, 2017
Midge Maisel is the hero we need right now.
