    Amazon has picked up The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, their drama pilot from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, to series with a 2 season order.

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel follows Miriam ?Midge? Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she?s ever wanted. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent?one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy?a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson?s couch.

    The hour-long series was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino.
    It is produced in-house by Amazon Studios and stars Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards), Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire), Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men). In addition to penning the script, Amy Sherman-Palladino also executive produces alongside Daniel Palladino.

    Sorry for digging up an old thread but watched the first two episodes of this last night and it's very enjoyable so far. Rachel Brosnahan is great in it.

    Worth a look if you're looking for something to watch on amazon.

    I just finished watching it yesterday. It's not perfect but I think it's the series I've must enjoyed watching in a while.

    Really enjoyed the first series. Any date set for Series 2 yet?

    I'm on S01E03 and so far there's been at least 1 Coen Brothers reference in each episode:

    E01: The elevator guy is the same elevator guy as in Inside Llewyn Davis
    E02: The Barry Sisters are mentioned, or are part of the soundtrack (I can't remember which). They were also part of Maude Lebowski's record collection.
    E03: The lawyer is the same actor who ran the Gaslight Cafe in Inside Llewyn Davis.

    Edit:
    E04: Three singers in the Gaslight wearing Aran sweaters, just like in Inside Llewyn Davis.
    E08: Somebody gets beaten up for the same reason that Llewyn Davis gets beaten up in Inside Llewyn Davis.

    Given that they're all Llewyn Davis references bar one, I think the Barry Sisters could have been a coincidence. I wonder if I missed any references in episodes 2,5,6 & 7.

    Listening to some podcast and they mentioned that Amazon were doing a series on Lenny Bruce. I had never heard about this and Goggled to see if it was out and this is what I came across for Lenny Bruce.

    No idea why I never gave it a chance when it cam out considering all the awards it won.


    The pilot is great and I think the rest of my Sunday will be watching Mrs. Maisel.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Got 5 episodes in today and I have to say what a Marvelous show it is.


    One that really should have a wider audience.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Finished it tonight what a fabulous and really enjoyable series.


    Rachel Brosnahan is really great in the lead role.

    its just seems extremely irritating

    its just seems extremely irritating

    What does?

    I started watching it yesterday and finished it today, enjoyable overall. Felt it had a strong start and then kinda got meh for a few episodes and then picked back up for the last few episodes.

    Looking forward to next season, interesting to see where it goes next.

    I was a bit annoyed as after starting it i found the 2nd season wasnt out yet, i heard talk of Amazon picking it up for the 3rd season, so was under the impression the 2 seasons had already ran and it didnt do well ratings wise, which is usually why a streaming service picks up a show thats good.

    But no worries, only a month or so to wait for two :)

    Season 2 trailer


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 30,956 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mickeroo


    Got an e-mail saying season 2 is available now. Looking forward to it, season 1 was brilliant.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I watched the first two episodes of season two and really enjoyed them.


    Amazon sparing no expense with the sets and set pieces that's for sure.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    The Catskills episodes were fantastic.

    Zachary Levi is a nice addition to the cast.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Finished season 2 today and really enjoyed a nice set up for next season.

    Good to see Zachary Levi getting decent roles again now, hes had a rough time since Chuck, which i always felt was undeserved.

    I haven't watched this season yet, but ill devour it in a day or two over Christmas :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,817 ✭✭✭ nix


    So finally started this, episode 5 season 2, its decent so far.

    The
    wedding scene
    in like the second or 3rd episode was so cringe, i had to turn it off and go to sleep and finish it the next day. How can someone from that time drop so many offensive lines without batting an eye? Took me right out of the show, i know its a comedy drama but at least show some accuracy to the times..

    And then in episode 5
    Lenny Bruce
    dropping a star wars reference.. the shows set like 20 years before the first star wars movie is released :rolleyes:

    But eh, other than those instances, great show so far :D:pac:

  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson




  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 30,956 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mickeroo


    Season 3 is available now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    4 episodes in and loving it Cary Elwes joining the cast is a great addition.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Renewed for a 4th season.


    Finished episode 5 of season 3 and it might be my favourite yet Lenny and Midge just having fun.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,454 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Finished the season tonight and I think it's been my favorite yet.

    Alex Borstein deserves to start winning a few more awards for her performance in it.


    I just love the whole style set pieces and costumes of the whole show.

    Finished the 3rd season. I was on the fence during the first season; lots of laughs, but with some gratingly painful '50's stand-up American 'humour'/'humor', and some OTT performances. After a settling-in period though, got to love it. Season 2 was fantastic, and loved season 3. Really glad there's a fourth season on the way.
    Rachel Brosnahan was excellent- plays the whirlwind chatterbox brilliantly. Great supporting cast as well. Beautifully shot. Just such a great show.
