Fun and interesting - some historical slip-ups...
December 3, 2017
Really fun and interesting show. Set design is amazing and the clothes - to die for! I love Tony Shalhoub, and the rest of the cast is very good. I do take exception to some anachronisms in the script. Yes I was alive in the 50s and I am pretty sure people did not ask "Is that a thing?" or say "It is what it is"...Also, when Midge comes home from her first day of work and takes off her shoes - no stockings! Bare legged was definitely not a thing back then. I believe someone says about a crowd "Are they giving away free pantyhose?" Pantyhose did not become common until the advent of the mini skirt in 1965. Before that most women wore girdles or garter belts with stockings. Still - a fun series and great to experience 50s NYC!
