My Amazon Prime has now led me to season 1 of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Sometimes I don’t like what everyone else does, but at least I get why. Here, I don’t understand it. This is the most overrated show I’ve ever seen. It’s a show about a stand-up comic, and three episodes in, and I haven’t laughed once. Not a single joke was funny, and I laugh at everything.

“Two lips; three lipsticks.”

Why is everyone laughing at this?

Even Tony Shaloub and Kevin Pollak, who have been great in everything they’ve ever done before, fell flat in this. I haven’t got even up yet, but this is yet another reason I won’t be renewing my Amazon Prime subscription.

Clearly, I’m alone on this hill, but I can’t figure out why. As always, YMMV.
