The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon) — Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino returns for season two of her breezy, 1950s comedy that became a critical darling last year. This season is just as fast-paced, full of jokes, and curiously riveting as the first with Midge continuing to make her way through the male-dominated stand-up scene, battling good-naturedly with her sidekick Suzy, and working through her separation with her husband, Joel. There’s also some traveling this season, both locally and abroad, and Tony Shalhoub in berets and rompers. That should be all you need to convince you to watch.
