THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL was all about Susie Myerson’s (Alex Borstein) back story. It was fast, furious, and hilarious. Susie knows how to get her clients hired no matter what the cost to her pride or future. 

The writers filled in most of the blanks surrounding all the rumors and feuds. Viewers got more than they bargained for during a massive roasting session of who’s who in Hollywood. There were some familiar faces among the crowd: great fun and creative stories and jokes. 

I must say how phenomenal Alex was in this episode. Bombastic and honest to the bitter end. I feel the academy should just award Alex her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress now and cut out all the protocols and red tape. It’s just that blatantly obvious how talented she is. Maisel and Myerson always belong together. They make every situation real and honest. A true friend will always be a “friend.” 

THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL is worth audiences’ time, attention, and heart. All I can add is “tits up.” It is available to stream on Prime Video.
