This popped up on my Amazon Prime screen and I didn't even realize it was Amy Sherman-Palladino's (Gilmore Girls) new pilot or it had the wonderful Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards/Manhattan) in it. Really dug this. Added bonus is Rectify's Luke Kirby drops by to play Lenny Bruce. Such a fun promising pilot - MORE PLEASE.

PLEASE order this show, Amazon Prime Video! I wasn't sure what to expect, but it is masterful. If the pilot is any indication, every aspect was at least solid, some parts brilliant. I loved every moment and cannot wait for the season.

The jokes were quick and amusing during the entire show, but once she hits the stage, the laughs come faster and more often. I can't wait to see the rest of this funny, refreshing and very enjoyable program.

At first, when I was looking at the covers of all of the trailers to choose from, I found this to be a bit lackluster. The cover makes it look more like an American Girl series to me and I didn't think it would appeal to me. However, after watching the trailers I knew this series is where I needed to start off. I really enjoyed the pilot and hope that this show gets picked up. I love how Mrs. Maisel is breaking one stereotype after another all while being incredibly hilarious. This one is a winner!

Two days. That is what it took me. Two days because I could not stop watching. Rachel Brosnahan has perfect timing, the lines are hilarious and she kicks butt at life.

Having always been a fan of Amy Sherman-Palladino...Gilmore Girls, Bunheads...yes, that Amy Sherman-Palladino, I knew that this would be right up my alley. But, oh, my, goodness. She goes way above and beyond in this one.

Set in 1958 the costuming is worthy of runways and awards, the sets are amazing and the actors seem to come into your life like old friends. Well, except for Joel. I just want to kick him in his egotistical rear-end.

Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) is the kick-butt and take names, pseudo manager for her husband Joel's (Michael Zegen) going no-where comic career. But he bombs his act completely one night, blames her and leaves for his dim-witted girlfriend. Midge, having everything she could to help him and be an amazing wife and mother is devastated.

When she drunkenly gets on stage at his old stomping ground to let it all out, it is obvious that she has real comedic talent and hooks up with Suzie (Alex Borstein - That Cleveland Show, Shameless) and they are off to new careers, Suzy as her manager and Midge as the talent. And what a talent she has!

The show also consists of Abe Wiseman (Tony Shalhoub - Monk, Nurse Jackie) who is the quintessential Jewish dad who rules the family by way of the iron fist of his wife, Rose (Marin Hinkle - Judith from Three and 1/2 Men).

The roles of Midge and Suzy are so amazingly acted that they become the real deal and you just cannot get enough of them. This is one of the funniest shows I have seen in a long time and I am so ready for the second season!

Really? I mean REALLY? You gotta ask us "Hey! Tell us if you think this shows got legs? Worth the time, money and effort to make? Are you kidding me? If, whoever is runnin' things over there at Amazon Studios, did not realize that this is set to become an instant and DEE-licious binge watch for everyone who has come to expect the best from you guys, then I say "Fire that blind dope and find someone with a serious funny bone, and a refined palate that can savor the taste of beauty, brains and funny, all rolled up in the gorgeous package that is Rachel Brosnahan!!"

Best looking "new" thing from ya'll -EVER!

Please don't take too long to deliver the rest of the feast!

I watch all of the amazon pilots for their original content. Every show is incredibly different. I went in to watching this show and within the first few minutes of meeting the main character I was hooked. They have to make this show and preferably as soon as possible because I don't want to wait a year to binge watch the whole season.

What a pleasant surprise gem of a show. It builds gradually into the promise of the shows capabilities. Using this approach allows the development of the central character's back story. At the beginning you see small glimpses of her wit and snappy timing. The attention to details in costume and setting is great to see but it does not upstage the well written characters in the show. Tony Shalhoub's Emmy worthy acting ability stands out in his scenes with his grandson and daughter in the show. Rachel Brosnahan is never overshadowed in her performances and by halfway through the Pilot, I found myself completely sold on how she just absolutely makes the whole well done pilot come together and has you rooting for her in every minute of every scene. The show in it's entirety is well worth deserving it's own series. I can't wait to see more of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

Enjoyed immensely!! Reliving the past and the way women used to live their lives was exactly the way it was relayed in the show, to authentic details of sets, props, cookware, etc., clothes, accessories, hair and make-up, to how we used to sleep in rollers and not let men catch us without make-up, measuring our bodies to keep the perfect form, perfect house, perfect life, perfect wife. Keep these nuances and little facts in your show - that ever so subliminally come through, and how society really used to be for women - and you have my vote as long as the show runs. Leave them out and you've lost me. It will become just another lack-luster, something to watch. Keep them in and you've got depth and soul for women of my entire generation to relate to and enjoy.

So, I'm sitting around my apartment doing nothing, it's rainy and cold and I'm bored. So I open my laptop, click my Amazon app to re-watch Bosch when I notice this pilot. Might as well click on it and if I don't like it I'll just close it and watch something else. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Boy, was I glad I did. This pilot was wonderful! I loved the storyline and the writing was top notch. I was drawn in completely. It's funny and grown up and perfect. All of the actors were amazing. I don't watch a whole lot of TV so I didn't recognize any of them except Tony Shalboub. But they were all perfect. It wasn't until the end that I realized the writer is Amy Sherman Palladino. I loved Gilmore Girls for the first couple of years and then it got repetitive and boring. I haven't bothered watching the rehash. I guess it's hard to be great week after week. But when she's on, there is no better writer than Amy.

I have no clue how these things work but I really hope this turns into a series. I would definitely watch it . . . at least until I get bored with it. I've done the survey so, hopefully Amazon will gives this series the go ahead.
