The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Recommended Posts

Looked, didn't find a thread. Based on the title alone this is not a show I would have sought out, but a guy at work told me it was really funny and it's getting a lot of buzz. Basic premise is a young 50s housewife finds out she has a knack for stand up comedy. The lead actress played the hooker in House of Cards in all three seasons I think (I only watched the first).

I thought the first episode was awful until the big event which causes the plot to shift. But maybe that was intentional. The tough bartender/agent is pretty funny, so I'll give it another shot.

Mrs. Maisel has a smoking figure which she displays in the first episode. Which is nice. Anyone else watching this?

I've watched 2 or 3 episodes. The cast is great. The acting is great. There are moments that are great. But neither me or my wife can commit to watching it.

Could have sworn there was a thread. Maybe it was in the Netflix Amazon thread. Fantastic show, great cast. Would smash.

It's in the Amazon Prime recommendations thread. It's a great show and worthy of its own thread.

Yep.  Whole cast and both seasons are great.  Tony Shaloub absolutely slays me.  Spoiler alert: you only see her tits in the first episode.  But they are very nice.

I didn’t care much for the first Catskills episode but the second one was awesome.

Paris was a a bit hit and miss. The translator stand up scene was terrible.

1st season was great. Almost done with season 2 and so far it's a bit of a let down. The road trip episode wasn't good.

Season 2 is hit or miss. Starts a little slow (Paris stand up is dumb), Catskills was amazing IMO, end of season totally forgettable

The end set up Season 3 well I thought.  Catskills were definitely the highlight.  Susie!

Season 2 was good, not as good as season 1. I felt like they had a few too many ideas and it was a little messy. Like the Paris stuff. Her mom just snaps out of it and that’s it? Looking forward to season 3 though.

Show and ( . )( . ) are both great. 


If you need more they make an appearance in House of Cards. Lizzie sex scene no less.

My wife and I binged both seasons recently.  Same reactions as everyone here.  Midway through the pilot we are both about to check out and wondering why this show is being hyped, and then the swerve comes and we both loved the rest of the series.  I didn’t like the Paris thing at the beginning of Season 2 that much, but I probably enjoyed the rest of Season 2 even more than the first season.  

Also, I find Susie’s silly plunger gimmick way, way funnier than I probably should.

Guilty. That was gold. Reminded me of a bit Michael Keaton did in The Paper. "A clipboard and a confident wave will get you into any building in the world!"

OK, so I'll watch S1e1.

I just watched both seasons of this and enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Wish we got to see her boobs more than the first show. But she's pretty hot, pretty funny, the set design/costumes are fun to watch in a "Mad Men" kinda way. Definitely worth the time.

We watched S1e1 last night and came away very, very “meh.”  Based on that one episode, the show is boring and disjointed. Is it supposed to be a comedy?  A drama?  A whimsical fantasy about a woman who doesn’t seem to notice she has children?  WTF is this show?

Keep watching.  The first 80% of episode 1 is nothing like the rest of the series.  My wife and I were about to turn it off during episode 1, too, but it gets better very quickly.

  As someone probably far outside the demo they are looking for, I find this to be one of the best shows out.

Watched the first episode last night.  The mom and dad are still the best thing in the show.

I wouldn't say they were the best, but they are the truffle adorned coating on the best. Not only are they interesting on their own, but they influence the main character.

Perhaps. but I just think Tony Shaloub is fantastic in this.  The mom is great too.  Actually pretty much all of the performances are excellent, although the main character occasionally grates on me a bit (probably intentionally).
