Storyline

Set in 1950s Manhattan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a 60-minute dramedy that centers on Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a sunny, energetic, sharp, Jewish girl who had her life mapped out: go to college, find a husband, have kids, and throw the best Yom Kippur break-fasts in town. Soon enough, she finds herself exactly where she had hoped to be, living happily with her husband and two children in the Upper West Side. A woman of her time, Midge is a cheerleader wife to a man who dreams of a stand-up comedy career, but her perfect life is upended when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman. Utterly unprepared, Midge is left with no choice but to reevaluate her life. When she accidentally stumbles onto the stage at a nightclub, she discovers her own comedic skills and decides to use this newfound talent to help her reinvent her life. The series follows the trajectory of Midge's journey as she pursues a career in the male-dominated, stand-up comedy profession, and transforms from uptown... Written by kolnoaMograbi

Why all the bad reviews?
8 December 2018 | by kaitryn-olsonSee all my reviews

I love this show I watched every episode in the first season at least 10 times because it's jus so good and I want everyone I know to see it. I do not give 10's to many shows but this one completely deserves it. I don't quite understand why everyone is saying this show isn't funny, because it all is hilarious I mean Tony Shalhoub is hilarious, and Alex Borstein was just born to play this role. If you are a hater saying this show isn't funny, rewatch because some of the jokes are subtle and I didn't completely get them until watching a second time because I was focused more on the plot. If you are a hater saying that you don't relate to any of the characters... Huh? How? I'm nothing like any of the characters yet I can relate to each one in different ways, I mean Miriam's husband cheated on her, which caused her to do something new. Has an event in your life ever caused you to try something new... Well there related. I feel like a lot of the haters are just mad this is a show where a huge theme is feminism. Well the thing is women are funny too and I'm glad there is a show out there showing how amazing women can be truly, and that women can be funny. This show is what our world today needed.
