The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel The Best TV Shows of 2019

Critics Consensus

As visually spectacular as ever, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's witty banter flies with comedic fury -- but shallow social commentary and wandering storylines highlight the show's increasingly superficial tendencies.

Critic Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 3

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (17)

It can be a fun diversion, sweet in its willful irrelevancy and alluring in its jovial rhythms.

Dec 10, 2019 | Full Review…

The moments when Maisel works are delightful enough to overwhelm the series' many tics and useless subplots. It's getting harder, though, not to think of how much better the show would be if it tossed aside a large chunk of the supporting cast.

Dec 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It's frustrating, because the show keeps hinting that it's edging toward more substantial fare, only to back out at the last minute.

Dec 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Season 3 could rebound in its back half. The focus could shift, real problems could arise, and Brown could get that juicy arc he deserves. Even without all that, the first five episodes are sure to please die-hard fans.

Yes, the basics absolutely are in place, and the pleasures, too.

Top Critic

It starts off with a bang, impresses and seduces you with its sheer likability, but then the flaws start to reveal themselves. Small, niggly things. But that doesn't mean you can't forgive them to have a bloody great time with it.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

This season of Mrs. Maisel is pretty, well, marvelous.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The season is enjoyable, and I think great things are being done with Midge's character in particular.

Dec 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A family-friendly, charmingly retro comedy series...The good news is...The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is still delightful.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

I do love Mrs. Maisel, but that doesn't mean I don't wish it were a little bit more self-aware.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" is both endearing dramedy and a work of aesthetic pleasure.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Go on, just watch it.

Audience Reviews for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 3

    Excellent as always, and possibly better than season 2. This was a little more frantic, theatrical, and silly at times (and gets a little more vulgar each year), but the writing and timing is consistently fantastic. And I can't get enough of Rachel Brosnahan's standup routines. Keep 'em coming!

    This show does so much right! It's funny, explores another side of the Jewish American experience, and is historically interesting.
  • 18h ago
    Made no sense. Massive plot jumps and disconnected characters... I kept thinking I must have missed an episode. The show became too eager to take on a 2019 political agenda and lost it'd power and charm along the way. Ugh.

    I really love this show. This season has amazing musical scenes that are so lovely to watch.

    Early Vegas and Florida episodes drag, but the writing and energy get much better when the setting gets back to NYC.

    The story line is getting repetitive and shallow. Season three is a just mediocre.

    (Rating is for the show in its entirety). The first two seasons restored my faith in TV shows. The third season squashed it. I personally rank Mrs. Maisel with Mr. Robot and Downton Abbey, some class-A favorites that have recently fallen fresh off a cliff. Where the first two seasons of this show were exciting, whimsical, and downright funny, this season was...off. The writing lacked heart. The characters lacked relatability. The plot meandered and backpedaled so often I couldn't keep count. I only hope the writers take note and make an even stronger fourth season. I know they can produce wonders, so PLEASE, from a huge fan of this show--make it happen!

    Another great season for Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, awash with the same period charm and witty writing that made it last year's awards sweeper. Seeing the titular character go on tour, the writers conjure up a wealth of fun scenarios for her to get into, and with the introduction of musician character Shy Baldwin the set-pieces are as impressive as ever. Musical and dance numbers are the norm this season, and they're approached with the same careful consideration that makes the stand-up scenes so glorious. Still, as sweet as it is, this is potentially the darkest season, with themes regarding marriage and homosexuality taking some decidedly mature turns, and the season actually ends on a heartbreaking note. Still, for those wanting a period dramedy that lacks overbearing doom-and-gloom and carries a rebelious spirit, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel remains the top-tier choice.

    Disappointing. My interest waned more and more as the season progressed. Most of the story lines were lame (e.g., Joel's efforts to open a nightclub; Rose giving up her trust and turning to matchmaking; Abe's angst, sense of self-importance and continuous whining about everything; Susie's growing gambling habit, implied embezzlement and eventual turn to arson; anything and everything about Joel's parents; Sophie's manipulation of Susie to get on Broadway, the pointless appearances/reappearances of Lenny Bruce, etc.). Worse though was the story line of Midge touring with Shy and its eventual end. Not even the talents of Sterling K. Brown could help here, and the lack of any accurate historical perspective left this story line disingenuous and contrived. I now care little whether a fourth season will follow.

    For some reason this season brings on some serious over acting by several of the characters. Still entertaining as heck.
