Amazon Prime has started a new Pilot Season and to stay I'm excited would be an understatement. Last summer, Amazon started a competition where they made 5-10 pilot episodes and asked Amazon Prime users to vote on their favorite. The winners would be given a first season on Amazon Prime. They recently released five new shows and I've started with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I will say I'm super biased towards starting with this show because it was created, written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of Gilmore Girls, one of my all-time favorite shows!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel takes place in New York City during the late 1950s. It follows a young Jewish couple, Miriam and Joel Maisel, who are trying to balance living on the Upper West Side and Joel's passion for stand-up comedy.
The fast pace, long monologue and witty commentary are very similar to Gilmore Girls, and it doesn't disappoint. Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam is truly fantastic--honestly she is so talented and it's crazy to see how different this role is for her compared to her previous roles in House of Cards and small roles here and there. I hope the show gets picked up because it's amazing! Why are you still reading this?! Watch it here now!
