The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel pulls off an enviable feat in making us fall in love with a story about ambition and dreams while flirting with ideas about a woman's role in the spotlight, on stages and in history.
Sherman-Palladino has found yet another magnetic, tough but vulnerable brunette to help weight down this cloud: the outstanding Rachel Brosnahan, whose note-perfect New York nasality and sharp comic timing are evident from the first seconds of the pilot.
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.
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.
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.
