The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (“accent on the may”) kicks off its third season just as witty and quick-fire as previous seasons. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, known for her smartly-written classic Gilmore Girls, Mrs. Maisel shines due to its fast-paced dialogue and unique plot placed in the 1960s. The show appeals to all audiences, focusing on the humourous journey of blossoming stand-up comic, Miriam (Midge) Maisel, a Jewish housewife from New York City turned on-the-road divorcee comedian. Though the show is very much a comedy, Sherman-Palladino does not shy away from facing real issues. Throughout the show, the characters challenge mid-century societal norms as they progress in their development. Season three of Mrs. Maisel continues to deal with real issues like divorce and sexism while maintaining a light atmosphere that inspires hope for a better future. In season three, Midge heads on the road to tour while navigating her relationship with her family and ex-husband, Joel. Midge’s parents, Abe and Rose, also face major life changes that challenge the privileged lives they had been accustomed to for decades. Packed with both plenty of laughs and substance, Mrs. Maisel is the show you have been looking for. If you appreciate good jokes and good brisket, check out season three of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel streaming now on Amazon Prime!
