The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 Review: Midge Hits Rock-Bottom?

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 Review streams from February 18 on Amazon Prime Video. The comedy-drama stars Rachel Brosnahan as Midge Maisel, Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen as Joel Maisel, and others. The fourth season is created b Amy Sherman-Palladino. The review is based on the 2 episodes provided for screening.

The synopsis reads, “It’s 1960 and change is in the air. Looking to hone her act, Midge finds a gig with total creative freedom. But her commitment to her craft—and the places it takes her—creates a rift between her and the family and friends around her.”

Amazon Prime’s The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 Review Contains No Spoilers

Throughout 3 seasons of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, we’ve seen Mrs Maisel become the iconic Midge. The tragedy in her life changed her life to a great extent. She was a wife, faithfully and in love. But as the series progressed, Midge became a powerful stand-up comedienne, which was unheard of during those times. Her husband’s infidelity pained her and helped her grow as a person.

In every season, Midge’s words make you laugh, call out the world’s irony and hit hard. But at the end of season 3, Midge does something that hurts Shy Baldwin. It was a big career opportunity as Midge would get a chance to perform on a world tour. But her insensitive joke about Baldwin got her fired. The Marvelous Ms Maisel Season 4’s first episode starts with Midge performing. She’s reacting indirectly to what happened and stresses the word ‘revenge’.

Midge’s comedy career seems to have hit rock bottom as she lost the big opportunity. It has affected her so much that she’s losing her sanity quite often. Midge’s manager, Susie, is also worried as she doesn’t know how to tackle the career roadblock of her only client. It’s not like the stand-up shows at the club are doing well either! The family drama and other characters are also not making it easy for Midge and Susie.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 Still 1

What made The Marvelous Mrs Maisel stand out often is how terrific is its comedic timing. Rachel Brosnahan brilliantly captivates our minds and attention always with her performance. However, the humour doesn’t land in the first two episodes. Except for a few scenes, nothing seems amusing. Even with the beautiful set design, exquisite costumes and the usual fast delivery of dialogues, the appeal factor is lost somewhere.

The first episode did have some charm. But episode 2 of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 is quite a dull watch. Midge’s career is at stake, and she isn’t handling it well. But it seems like the writers had trouble making her “problems” appear serious while also balancing the humour.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 Review: Final Thoughts

Overall, the first two episodes fail to amaze. One can hope that from the third episode, the show picks up and adds some exceptional moments. Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein are excellent in their parts. But the fascinating factor is missing so far.

The episodes will stream on Amazon Prime Video from February 18.

SUMMARY

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel Season 4 packs few laughs and rare good moments.

10 COMMENTS

  1. Now up to episode 6. Mostly not funny. Midge is just kind of mean, and depressing, though I did laugh my head off when she unexpected fell into the orchestra pit. Joel and Mei Lin have no chemistry. Too much Susie. Too much Sophie Lennon (cringey). The parents have gone from funny to annoying. I am so disappointed. I think it’s dead.

  2. Season 1-3 were excellent, Season 4 is just awful and I have stopped watching. It was such a great show not sure if they changed writers or what.

  3. So much plotless, needless cross dressing. The setting is almost 100 years ago, not yesterday. The historical relevance was an important part of the first two seasons. Lesser so in season three, but the social Era has just entirely disappeared in season 4. The cinematography even as recent as the pool scene where Midge wakes up in the lawn chair sunburned was stupendous! But, all that is gone now.

    Hopefully, we’ll see a better written & directed season like the last three. But, I doubt it. It appears this show is getting pressure to throw modern social issues into an entirely different world despite the setting, as well as the established plot.

    Sophie Lennon is annoying, and a large part of this season. It was nice to see a mock scene of old late night TV, but that’s the extent of the niceties we’ve received. Everything is slow, and sad. At this point I’m almost done with this season, and the series. I will not pick it up again unless season five has rave reviews.

  4. Season 4 is pointless and with no plot. Just aimless wandering about the characters boring lives. Loved first 3 seasons, quit 4th season after watching 4 excruciatingly boring episodes. They blew it bad on this season.
