The year 2017 has been great for women. They have felt more comfortable in being vocal about their personal issues, which has lead to significant changes in society. While it's often presented as harrowing tales, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino makes the suggestion that sometimes airing grievances doesn't need to be dramatic. Sometimes it can be funny. With her latest series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, she travels back to the 1960's to explore the rise of a stand-up comic named Miriam Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan), who over the course of the eight episodes explores how she managed to find her voice and stand out from the shadow of her hack comedian husband Joel (Michael Zegen). The show has the familiar Sherman-Palladino wit with plenty of the energy that made her other shows charming. It also is a breath of fresh air at the end of a long and arduous year.
