this is one of the best shows i have watched in a long time.

anyone familiar with house of cards, stars the girl who was the prostitute doug was obsessed with. she plays a housewife who’s husband left her for his secretary, set in the 50s. she falls into doing stand up comedy and very funny.

Best show in a long while!
totally agree. i was going to catch up on mozart in the jungle (great show, just slow at times), but came across this and gave it a shot. i haven’t been able to stop watching when i turn on the tv.

Arguably the best single season of any show I've ever watched. It's rare for me to not be able to think of one single thing I'd change, but with this show, I can't. Everyone was perfectly cast, the music was always right on point, the story was so easy to relate to on so many levels.

It's just a gem. I've been encouraging everyone I can to watch it and not one person has come back with anything but the highest praise.

Cool - we&#8217;re about to finish second season of Stranger Things and need a new show. This sounds excellent.

my only complaint is that it was only 8 episodes.

Seriously. Why do we get 21 episodes of American Idol and 8 of the really good stuff? I had been looking forward to this one since they released the pilot episode.

i admit, it is one of the best shows that i have watched in a very long time. it is one of the few that i would watch daily if it was on.

I have been sitting on the fence about renewing my prime membership due at the end of this month for some time now. This show may just be good enough to tip the scale. Just finished episode 2

Beautifully written and performed.
So tight with the script, nothing is wasted.
As good as Mrs. Maisel is, the two dads are just perfect in their roles.


Only script as tight as TMMM is The Missing on Amazon as well, though it’s not a comedy.

Guess I'll be the lone dissenter in this crowd. Not that the show wasn't good, it's definitely good. I was expecting it to be funnier based on responses here. I will say that the performances have been great all around. I have 1 episode to go and I decided to give my critique before watching the last episode.
The 7th episode annoyed me terribly because it seemed really out of character for Mariam. It was like they decided, "oh we need to set up the storyline for season 2! Let's have her randomly start making mean spirited jokes at the expense of someone else."
