Show of the week
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has done it again. Her new series for Amazon features another marvelous female protagonist in Miriam Maisel, a 1950s New York housewife who bounces back with a vengeance after her husband leaves her for another woman. Grabbing the mike at a stand-up comedy club, a bereft Miriam slays, and soon she has reinvented herself as a lipsticked Lenny Bruce. Gilmore trademarks— fast-talking dialogue and uproarious family squabbles—are in full effect, and star Rachel Brosnahan is, well, marvelous. Available for streaming Wednesday, Nov. 29, Amazon
