Started with Season 1, when Midge was married to a dashing partner with two adorable kids and lived a picture-perfect life. Her wardrobe with glorious costumes depicted class and the elitism. Every bit, ranging from the music to the period-drama setting, season 1 left the audience with an urge wanting for more.

The Marvelous MrsMaisel explores the resentment of generations of women in an unmatched style. Midge in a monologue from the series points out-right the taboo and stigma prevalent in the society. “Why do women have to pretend to be something they’re not? Why do we have to pretend to be helpless when we’re not helpless? Why do we have to pretend to be sorry when we have nothing to be sorry about? Why do we have to pretend not to be hungry when we’re hungry?” Such hard-hitting questions are all set to be delved into while leaving you with a jaw-dropping cinematic experience.
3. Not just Maisel but other characters will make you fall in love with them!

Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle, Michael Zegan, Bailey De Young, Brian Tarantina, and Cynthia Darlow to name a few, add convincing dimensions to the narrative. Even the brief cameos from comics performing at The Gaslight, from curious ventriloquists to baffling musicians, will leave you delighting for sure.
