THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL is back in full force. Gosh, we missed you. Now everyone can forget about that disastrous season four, sit back, and enjoy the final episodes of this hilarious series. 

The creators (Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino) are taking viewers forward into the future while filling in the blank spots of the continuing, present plot line. Somewhere both will meet up, and all will be known and explained. Clever and creative. It feels like a magnet is being held over the audience and the entire ensemble. No choice but to lean in and enjoy the crazy ride. 

The costumes, locations, and cinematography are wonderful. Bright, bold colors, along with the muted pastels, maintain your attention. The details in every scene do not go unnoticed. It is pure joy for your visual sensations. Makes me want to go back or forward in time. 

What I loved most is how the writers put Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) and  Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) front and center once again. The rapid-fire lines, jokes, and facial expressions are non-stop hilarity. They are so in sync that sometimes, no words are even necessary, leading to outright belly laughs. Every character has a storyline and gets their moments to shine, stumble, and grow. Totally compelling. 

I loved the music from WEST SIDE STORY, ice skating at 30 Rock, and going for twenty jokes in 2.5 minutes. I can’t wait for something to happen at lunch or after 7 PM. It’s only “fondly sexualized gestures.” Nothing to be alarmed about unless you have the misfortune to add an “n”  to Carol Chaning.” But then, as long as you “speak mumble,” it will all work out. 

THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL is what I have needed in my life. It is as fresh as when it first made its debut. Ethnicity is important in our current world. We need more to pull us closer together. Mrs. Maisel is offering their calling card. Don’t miss out.

It is available to stream on AMAZON PRIME.
