The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - Season Five

Friday night, Sharon and I finished watching season five of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The fifth season was released on April 14, 2023. This is the final season. We finished watching the first season on September 6, 2019, the second season on September 22, 2019, the third season on March 6, 2020 and the fourth season May 24, 2022.

The show stars Rachel Brosnahan (Rachel in House of Cards) as Miriam "Midge" Maisel. Maisel is a New York housewife in the late 1950s who discovers she has a knack for stand-up comedy and pursues a career in it. Marin Hinkle (Judith on Two and a Half Men) and Tony Shalhoub (Wings and Monk) feature in supporting roles as her parents.

Sharon and I both really enjoyed the final season. I highly recommend it. They did a couple of interesting things in season five. They flashed forward and backward repeatedly. They did one whole episode set in the distant future from the timeline that was a roast; it provided an opportunity to tell a number of stories. It was a satisfying conclusion to the series.
