9 thoughts on “Mrs. Maisel Is Back!

  1. I am glad you guys cover the costumes, because they’re great, but the show’s pilot just left me with a sour taste in my mouth, and from what I’ve seen the things that bugged me are a feature to everyone else. I know I’m an outlier on that, and some friends LOVE Maisel (which occasionally shoots near where I work), so I got some snaps of the fancy dogs for them, but it’s not for me. But that means your recaps let me get the great costume content and avoid cheering a protagonist I intensely dislike. Gorgeous production value—let’s hope Zakowska gets more costume dramas to do in the future because the care and attention show through so obviously (and I love that she uses art for guidance).

  2. I binged this season too! I still love it as much as I ever did. It reminds me of all the best things about classic films; wonderful wardrobes, New York City nostalgia, and rapid, witty dialogue.

  3. The costumes remain one of the best parts of the show. This season left me a little cold due to the lack of consequences for bad behaviors (until the very end), but the performances of the actors — particularly Sterling K. Brown, Leroy McClain (Shy Baldwin) and Luke Kirby (Lenny Bruce) — are amazing.

  4. I accidentally read ahead to a dreadful detail, and am reluctant to finish this season.

    My other major thought is the number of Mandarin speakers in 1960 Manhattan Chinatown. I’m pretty sure Cantonese, maybe Toishanese were the main language(s) at that time. Not sure why the production decided on Mandarin.

  5. I was unemployed when they were shooting in Binghamton for Season Two (ski resort scenes). I was afraid of fucking up my unemployment benefits, so I did not become an extra, which I regret.

  6. That ”balloon ” like hat is a very 60’s style. In the Music man, Marian wears a similar hat.
