    Well, I was pleasantly surprised watching this. I can't recommend it highly enough!!!

    The IMDb plot reads :-

    "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" series is set on New York's Upper West Side in the late 1950s, where a privileged Jewish housewife, Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), lives with her lousy husband Joel (Michael Zegen), an aspiring comedy writer. But when he leaves her for another woman, Midge decides to take a crack at her own stand-up ambitions, with the help of Suzie (Alex Borstein), a no-nonsense bartender at a comedy club."

    Has it been released? Heard good things about it ealier in the year, but it hadn't been picked up for a full season, if I recall it correctly.

    Yes! It was released yesterday! I've finished the first two episodes. It's very quaint!

    This was great. Definitely worth a watch IMO. Has a Mad man feel to it for sure but is much more cheerful and comic. The lead actress just hits out of the park as well.
