THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL gave viewers an inside look at how unfair and unequal the pay and job opportunities were (and still are) just a few decades ago. There were several bodice-popping moments that made this episode must-see tv. 

It is evident that many stand on Midge Maisel’s (Rachael Brosnahan) shoulders. I know she is a made-up character for our viewing pleasure, but the final scene in the bathroom made it all feel so real. How easily we forget what others had to endure before us. Kudos to the writers who created a humorous, fast-paced episode that would touch the heart of every working woman. Kudos to creating a moment of surprise concerning the youngest daughter, Esther, and Abe (Tony Shalhoub). And kudos to the fantastic opening and closing 50s parody of THE DANNY THOMAS SHOW. Sheer brilliance. These special seconds are what make THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL stand out among the best. Just so well done. 

THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL does not need a “filmic” commercial to place me in the “happy group.” The show does this all on its own through its innovative creativity. Well worth your time.

It is available to stream on AMAZON PRIME.
