In the fast talking, 1950s high society of the New York Upper West Side, Miriam Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) is back and better than ever in season two of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. After the fallout of season one with Miriam’s (also known as Midge) ex-husband Joel (Michael Zegen) walking in on Midge doing a stand up set, which was his dream, Midge now finds herself touring different venues to try and make a name of herself.
Rachel Brosnahan once again shines as Mrs. Maisel, she brings such charisma to this character and owns this show. I enjoyed Susie (Alex Borstein), Midge’s manager, more this season and her relationship with Midge. Zachary Levi surprised me this season as I had no idea that he was in the show but gave a fine performance as Midge’s new love interest, Benjamin. And the writing from show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino continues to be strong, though it is less centered this season.
