As I've said before, II'm waiting for Mrs. Maisel to hook up with Don Draper.

Love Alex Borstein in this.

No, I don't want some lemonade. Do I look like I want some cocksucking, fucking lemonade?

You grew up in Brockway. Your house was on stilts. How do you not know how to swim?

Because my drunken whore of a mother never taught me.

What if you fell in the water?

Well, then Christmas came early that year.

Either way adjusted for inflation I need to be dead by 1965.

I really love this show. The sets, costumes and soundtrack are amazing. It’s campy and theatrical and just a lot of fun. 

It got a little too campy in the middle of the season with some scenes with Jane Lynch and the scenes with Tony Shalubs hippy friends.  I can't believe the daughter from Californication got another acting job she is awful.

 

Overall good season, but too short.

It did make me think at times I was watching a play or old musical, which I guess I liked ok, my parents made me watch a lot of them growing up.

Does a good job of subtly showing the different mindsets from the 60s concerning race, homophobia, women's rights, etc.    I'd like to see  more Lenny Bruce in the thing. 

Spoiler

What's weird is that i was expecting her to expose him at the Apollo.  But at the end of the set, I felt she hadn't.   Next thing you know, she did, in a way.   Caught me off guard, since I was looking at her monologue through today's eyes, not eyes of the 60s.

After thinking about it, I'm kinda surprised they just up and fired her like that. She pretty well holds the trump card at that point, unless they believe she actually did expose him there. All she's gotta do is tell the story about how she found him beat up in his boat and his career is over.

Oh I thought that was funny how they mentioned Carey Elwes was shooting a pirate movie next.

this show is making me not like kevin pollack anymore, which is sad.  the scenes with the in-laws and with the ex-husband dragged, and were, at times, very theatrical (his new girlfriend was fucking annoying).  shalhoub still rules though.

i've gotten used to the idea that midge (and sometimes susie) are always "on", and i'm ok with it.  it's part of the show's charm.  but when everybody is on, it can get on my nerves.

solid season, with a bummer of an ending, but one they telegraphed through much of the season.

C'mon. Pollack is gold. It's his character that's an asshole. He's just so good he projects asshole.

She called him gay every way possible in 1960. As soon as she went past how beautiful he is, she went too far. But this storyline needed to end anyway so this allows the character to stay in NY.

What a great series. Shaloub is perfect in this. I would like to sex down Midge.

I wonder how often Rachael Brosnahan's husband asks her to stay in character for sexy time.

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. 

Agreed. I watched the first two episodes last night and loved them. I love the 50's/60's backdrop, certainly adds to the charm (loved Mad Men for this same reason -- and many others).
