    What about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? The two shows are very, very different, but I think CXG deserves just as much recognition (with many more eps per season).

    Finished Season 1. Meh.







    Kidding! Loved it. Rachel Brosnahan is amazing. Really great to eat Christmas leftovers by - lots of BBQ turkey sandwiches and home made macaroni salad - wish I had some pastrami.

    Great show. It has really high quality writing and acting. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I find it interesting to compare this show to the film "Inside Llewyn Davis," which was also set around 1960 in New York and featured a performer at the Gaslight. The two works have very different moods and vibes.

    I love them both (binged Mrs. Maisel the past two nights), but Crazy Ex Girlfriend is pure genius and Rachel Bloom is a force of nature.

  7. I enjoyed it. Gilmore Girls, not so much but this is more my cup of tea.

    She had a pretty spicy role on the WGN historical series about the Manhattan Project as well...too bad that one didn't catch fire. Apparently led to this role, though.

    Really exceeded my expectations. Acting, cinematography, set design, costumes and music all top shelf. Started a bit slow but then got into a nice groove. Glad we will be seeing a season 2. Smart, Adult programming that had me laughing and waxing nostalgic.

    Excellent show. Very funny. Amy Sherman-Palladino has done it again with her signature "rat-a-tat dialogue." Rachel Brosnahan is a star in the making.

    Saw all 8. Me and my shiksa wife loved it. The only thing she didn't appreciate was me trying to explain the jokes from time to time. Looking forward to season 2.
