Fun and interesting - some historical slip-ups...
Verified purchase
Really fun and interesting show. Set design is amazing and the clothes - to die for! I love Tony Shalhoub, and the rest of the cast is very good. I do take exception to some anachronisms in the script. Yes I was alive in the 50s and I am pretty sure people did not ask "Is that a thing?" or say "It is what it is"...Also, when Midge comes home from her first day of work and takes off her shoes - no stockings! Bare legged was definitely not a thing back then. I believe someone says about a crowd "Are they giving away free pantyhose?" Pantyhose did not become common until the advent of the mini skirt in 1965. Before that most women wore girdles or garter belts with stockings. Still - a fun series and great to experience 50s NYC!

Unchecked White Privilege Packaged as a Sanitized Feminist Narrative
Verified purchase
Abounding in stereotypes, the whole show glosses over real issues of gender, class, and race under the not-so-subtle banner of a very one-dimensional, stereotypical brand of "feminism." While femism has progressed to questions of inter-sectionality, etc. this show invokes the most crudely glaring cliches of early feminism as if inventing them for the first time. Everything you hated about Palladino's character Rory in Gilmore Girls resurface in Mrs. Maisel with a vengeance - and no hint of self-awareness.

Any comedy fan and every New Yorker will love this
Verified purchase
In addition to being funny, this show provides a fairly accurate slice of New York life in the late fifties. Miriam Maisel is indeed a perfect--brilliant, funny, and beautiful--26 year old mother who, despite the opinions of her parents, is not bereft just because her husband leaves her. She gets a job and a hobby (standup comedy) but her parents and in-laws are more more motivated than she is to reconcile with Joel, the husband who left her, perhaps for another woman or perhaps because she wasn't supportive enough of *his* standup comedy aspirations.
The sets alone should make any native New Yorker of a certain age--they re-created B. Altman's main floor!--eager to watch.
In addition to the references and performances of other standup comedians (after sixty years, all impersonators, naturally) there are slices of New York politics of the period, including a great slap at Robert Moses' failed effort to build a highway across Lower Manhattan.
The routines which Mrs. Maisel performs, except for the intentional "bombs" are hilarious, so this is a show for any comedy fan.
Note that there is a "TV-MA" rating, there for a reason: There is nudity, profanity and you will hear sexual references. It's sad that adults who don't have an interest in adult material would watch a few minutes of this and then post a negative review. (I also can't help thinking that said reviewers are still living in the fifties, and would be judging their adult children just as the parents and in-laws do in this show).
Those who suggest that the details of this show are less than spot on? Well, both Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller--maybe others--incorporated their husbands and families into their acts, although perhaps not as accurately as Midge does, and Midge's "outing" another female comic for banking on a totally fake persona could easily be imagined.
That girls were raised to be wives and mothers, whose husbands were failures if wives had to work, is certainly accurate for the post-WWII era, as is a wife's being shielded from the details (or even the big picture) of the family budget. That Midge works in a department store is especially resonant: a woman I knew who walked into The World's Largest Store nearby during this decade, seeking to buy furniture on credit, was told that this store only granted credit to women who worked there. (So she marched up to the personnel office and obtained employment, which she retained for a could of decades, until volunteer work interested her in attending law school).
Finally, since I've been to the Upper West Side apartments of several tenured professors--apartments just as amazing as that of Miriam's parents--that element also rings totally true.

Abe, baby, what's happening...you're making a pilot...a 1950's housewife does what?
Verified purchase
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel starts out slow and seems too cute at first, but by the time the pilot arrives at its (originally) unexpected conclusion, you'll very much have wanted it to go there. Rachel Brosnahan stars as the title character, an overachieving 1950's woman who breezes through college and settles into that era's "perfect" life: a housewife and mother of two who supports her husband's ambitions. This includes his dream of becoming a stand-up comedian, which he pursues at night after working his well-paying office job during the day. Mrs. Maisel uses her baking skills and personality to help get him better times at the Greenwich Village club they frequent, although he ignores the copious notes she takes on how his act could improve. If his telephone call routine sounds familiar, that's because it is.

Brosnahan's character could have easily been off-putting like certain Mary Sues, but we learn she's not perfect despite trying hard to appear so. Her charisma and line delivery are so stunning that it's doubtful writer/director Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls) could have imagined a better actress for the part. In supporting roles are veteran actor Tony Shalhoub (Wings, Monk) as her father and Alex Borstein (Family Guy) playing a (likely lesbian) bartender who clashes with our hero. While probably doing some scenery chewing, Borstein is strong and creates a memorable character in a part she hasn't really been given before. Having the series get picked up would almost be worthwhile just to see what she could do, although it's much more than just one grumpy character.

Maybe The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel wouldn't have a long run, but at the very least a season should be made . Where the series would go and what it could explore are enticing in a way few pilots are. This show isn't just another comment on how misogynistic the '50s were, but offers to explore an often misunderstood art form while demonstrating how hurtful social constructions can be. And how Palladino-Sherman navigates through many potential pitfalls and a destination we know is coming shows strong writing talent, which too many series forget is very important. This pilot has the best reviews among the others for a reason: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel needs to be made. Hopefully the Amazon execs will listen and pick this one up. Until then, enjoy this delightful opening to what should be much more.

Trash. Watched maybe 10 minutes
I turned it off after about 10 minutes. It was neither marvelous nor funny. It's not something I want bouncing around in my brain either. Just plain trashy.

Really? I mean REALLY? You gotta ask us "Hey! Tell us if you think this shows got legs? Worth the time, money and effort to make? Are you kidding me? If, whoever is runnin' things over there at Amazon Studios, did not realize that this is set to become an instant and DEE-licious binge watch for everyone who has come to expect the best from you guys, then I say "Fire that blind dope and find someone with a serious funny bone, and a refined palate that can savor the taste of beauty, brains and funny, all rolled up in the gorgeous package that is Rachel Brosnahan!!"

Best looking "new" thing from ya'll -EVER!

Please don't take too long to deliver the rest of the feast!
