Trivia

After Midge gets off the stage in the Paris nightclub, the former New Yorker who has been acting as her translator hands her a card and says, "Here's the card for my psychiatrist who just moved from Boston to New York. He's done wonders for Sylvia Plath." Sylvia Plath was a poet and novelist, best known for her novel "The Bell Jar." She committed suicide at the age of 30 by gassing herself in her kitchen oven, after several previous, unsuccessful attempts at killing herself. See more »

Goofs

Midge and her father spontaneously leave New York for Paris on the next available flight. This would have been impossible in the 1950s. Americans required visas for France, which involved getting oneself to the French embassy, and probably leaving one's passport for several days. The US Visa Waiver Program came into effect in 1988, and France joined in 1989, so it was only then that US citizens could travel to France with only a valid passport. (It is also not clear that Midge and Abe would have had valid passports, since I don't remember previous episodes indicating international travels for either of them, and, since transatlantic travel was a major luxury, people didn't usually go through the hassle and expense of having passports 'just in case' back in the day.)

Still Marvelous, Thank God!

"Here's the card of a psychiatrist who just moved to New York from Boston. He's done wonders for my friend Sylvia Plath".

It's always slightly nerve wracking seeing how follow up seasons are handled, but alas, here there was no need to worry. The first episode of season 2 is exceptional. All the things that made season 1 great - cinematography, music, smart dialogue - are found here in abundance. It's startlingly beautiful and witty and intelligent, yet nothing feels superfluous or overambitious.

Marin Hinkle glistens in Paris as the newly liberated Mrs. Weissman; Michael Zegen brings more emotional depth to Joel and Alex Borstein's portrayal of Susie is as genius as ever.

Watch it, then recommend it to anyone known to watch anything.
