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.

By far the least interesting character is Joel (Michael Zegen), Miriam’s husband, who is bland and makes poor decisions.
