It needs to be said that I don’t often enjoy period pieces that really need to embrace their time period because I find it bogs down the story. Maybe they’re trying too hard to set the time-frame, and just start getting too heavy-handed with reminding you when you are rather than just letting the characters and the setting gel on their own.

That being said, from the second I started watching Mrs. Maisel, I fell in love with Amy Sherman-Palladino’s view of the fifties. The era is more of a character on its own rather than a backdrop, and I really dig that. A Pyrex dish does more for setting the time for me than all of Mad Men did, to be honest. Sorry. I really didn’t find a reason to like Mad Men.

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s schtick fits so well in the fifties. ASP’S rapid-fire dialogue was beautiful in Gilmore girls, but god damn, has it ever found its true home right here in NYC with Midge.

Rachel Brosnahan instantly shines, as does Alex Borstein. Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle are wonderful. And The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a brokheh. Taking a breather and plunging in for the inevitable obsessed binge-watch to the very end of the season.

 

My Rating: It’s Sarah Silverman Meets Pleasantville and I Love It!

  1. I dug it too. I agree completely with the 50s being it’s own character. I loved the costumes, sets, just everything about it. I like to say Kevin Pollak is great too. Ad’s vibes totally works here. She could shine with the “bluer” vibe.
