THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL
December 5, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Amazon Prime Video, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
SEASON PREMIERE: After a marvelous Season 1, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel stunned everyone at the most recent Emmy awards – winning, among other things, best supporting actress (Alex Borstein, as Midge Maisel’s dedicated manager), best actress (Rachel Brosnanan, in the title role), best comedy writing (for co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino), and, the biggest plum of all for Amazon, Outstanding Comedy Series. Each and every Emmy was well deserved – and Tony Shalhoub, as Midge’s father, should have won one, too. Today, Season 2 drops on Amazon, and within five minutes, has whisked Midge and her parents off to Paris, to a magical, and hilarious, detour to France. For full reviews on TVWW, see Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes and David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower. And for my review on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, listen to today’s show, or, after that, visit the Fresh Air website.
