Today I’m spending quality time with my Best Friend (and Familiar).

We are enjoying the 2nd season of Amazon Prime’s Original Series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

The stylish 1950’s-inspired ads for this series caught my eye, so I decided to check it out. Anyone who’s in love with the period will adore it! Well-written and acted, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel captures the essence of 1958 New York, and intersperses period music with more contemporary tunes. It’s brilliant comedic-drama and I absolutely adore Alex Borstein as Susie Myerson.

Add this series to your 2019 New Year’s Resolutions  Bucket List.
