Binge-Worthy Bulletin: 8 Reasons We're Obsessed With 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'

Slide 1 / 9

Welcome to Brit + Co's Binge-Worthy Bulletin, a series where we choose one show we're obsessed with and tell you all the reasons why. This week's pick is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which returns for a second season on December 5 on Amazon. Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) is an upper-middle-class, by-the-book, 1950s Jewish housewife whose life is turned upside down when her husband (Michael Zegen) admits his infidelity and leaves. So, she does what any reasonable woman in her situation would do: She gets drunk and storms the stage at the café where her husband has been trying — and failing — to get a stand-up career going, proving herself not only more than just a dutiful wife, but also a true comedic force. Click through to see some of the many, many reasons we love her (and the show). (Photos via Kevin Winter/Getty Images + Amazon Prime Video + Amanda Edwards/Getty Images)
