… So, let’s spend a few words trying to account for it…
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is getting a second season.
*Does a happy dance, which seems to be a weird combination of the Snoopy dance and the Carlton*
I loved the first season of this show.
The cast, the writing, the humor, the emotional swings – all of it.
Take an upper-middle class, Jewish Housewife, circa 1950s New York. Give her a husband that is trying stand up comedy as a hobby. Then let said husband leave her, and the kids. Take all of that, wrap it in the drama of a new life and two intertwined families in an era where that sort of thing just wasn’t done. Then, as it turns out, the housewife is actually better at stand up than her husband ever was.
There’s a lot more that goes into it. And you should get into it and find out.
I promise you, it will be well worth your time.
(The show plays on yet another streaming service that isn’t paying me, so fuck them. Let them do their own advertising. But I’m sure you can find it if you look.)
Anyways, all that to say the trailer for season two dropped yesterday, and I am unabashedly excited for this show to come back.
Oh, and the guy playing Lenny Bruce…
If you’re looking for something good, and a bit upbeat, check it out.
Until next time…
