Season 3 – episode 1 (nineteen) “Strike Up The Band”
Midge at USO troop rally!  ENORMOUS cast of extras and performers!
UN-BE-LIEVABLE set — old airplanes!
SO amazing that Amazon bought/funded this — and not any network — THIS is proof of how conventional Hollywood/entertainment just doesn’t get it — and how streaming services do.
Funny recurring joke about Alex being perceived as a dude 🙂
I love how Midge walks with the mic.
Nat King Cole character back — lots of footage of him performing.
Once again the cinematography and editing is fucking brilliant!

Abe: “Do you mean Jack Kerouac?”
Midge: “Who?”
Abe: “Jack Kerouac. On The Road. For God’s sake you should know him, you’re young. How a daughter of mine developed absolutely no intellectual or social curiosity or sense of responsibility is beyond me.”
Lenny Bruce routine — holds up Playboy centerfold — gets busted again — Abe comes and “gets it’ — stands up to cops busting Lenny.  Gets arrested with Lenny.
A second dancing oner shot!
Alex/Susie tells Midge she’s gonna manager Sophie (Jane Lynch).
The Mrs. Maisel character has really reinvigorated my love of improv!

Season 3 – episode 2 — (twenty) “It’s The Sixties, Man!”
Mentions the White Horse tavern.
Talking about putting out a revolution magazine.
House filled with beatniks.
8:30 — they go to Providence Oklahoma!
12 mins — New York apartment FULL of beatniks.
Rose’s parents made a fortune on oil wells.
Sad — but there’s a lot of stress and people not getting along — Midge & Susie, the Nat King Cole (Shy Baldwin) manager and Susie, Joel and the new landlords, Rose and her family, the beatniks and the maid, the family going broke.
Not loving this like I have in the past — but still amazing cinematography.

Season 3 – episode 3 – (twenty-one) “Panty Pose”
more conflict — Susie and Sophie’s manager.
This went from fun comedic harmony from constant strife.
Jane Lynch again.
Production design & costumes are still beautiful — but I’m no longer liking the story
They go to Las Vegas — again, AMAZING production design!!
I feel like i’ve lost interest in this.
Shy is nice to Midge — first time I’ve seen anyone be nice to anyone else in an hour and a half.

Again — INCREDIBLE wardrobe and locations.
Midge is successful now — in Miami, at Fonteaintleu Hotel.
Jane Lynch — but complaining and bitching — terrible character — don’t like her, not funny.

This has definitely lost its appeal to me by mid third season.
Carol Kaye bass character again — she’s even called Carol!
Lenny shows up!!! — he’s about the only part of this show I love at this point.
I wonder what Jerry Seinfeld thinks of this? Google search revealed nothing.
38 mins — Lenny Bruce again — this is the best part of the show.
Wow — he’s on a Playboy After Dark type show!
Amazing scene!
What BALLS to write Lenny Bruce as a character!!!

Schooner scene! — Shy & Midge on the waves.
Alex Borstein is fuckin great!
Midge cites the year as 1960.

There’s too much stress and arguing in this for me now.
It used to about harmony — now it’s about discord.
38 mins — Jason Alexander shows up. Blacklisting theme.
Midge & Nat King Cole — reveals he’s gay — after he’s been beat up by gay lover.
Episodic TV, no matter how good, is a soap opera.

Season 3 – episode 7 – (twenty-five) “Marvelous Radio”
Back in NY — Midge doing advertising voiceovers.
Production design and cinematography and editing is still BRILLIANT.
Great music — but the scriptwriting has really collapsed.
Veanne Cox (lawyer from Erin Brockovich) small part.
Midge doesn’t read live on air for Phyllis Shafley — show gets political.

Midge back at the Gaslight.

Washington Square Park!!! at daybreak.
Stupid storyline about Joel’s Chinese club.
Insurance knows they burned down the house – not giving money.
Gets surreal — magic tricks, hallucinations, surreal.
Families go to Coney Island.
Can’t stand the storylines involving the families — don’t give a shit about them.
Too much whining.
The script has really become a problem.
38 mins roller coaster stage — good script writing.
Caroline Aaron as mother Maisel is GREAT casting.
They talk about Midge riffing and improvising as her strength.
Commits to what’s on her mind — will only do shows where she can speak what she wants.
49:15 “Then let’s change the business.”
49:20 — killer closing Gaslight set.
“You can’t do anything if you keep your mouth shut.”
This is powerful stuff.

“I’m in for daring to say words.”

Season 4 – episode 3 – (twenty-nine) “Everything is Bellmore”
Midge plays a strip club.
Midge is selling Tupperware at her house.
Once again, I’m bored by the soap opera-ness and all the non-entertainment biz family bullshit.  I’ve lost interest.
But brilliant cinematography and design as always.
This is so stupid.  The writing is nowhere what it was.  Lost interest.
It’s so stupid that the house manager at a Village club would have no one at his funeral.
This really fell apart.
42 mins — Lenny Bruce shows up, challenges Midge, throws things at her on stage.

Midge still at the strip club — this is so stupid.
I’ve stopped caring about this at all.
Midge dates some shitty doctor.
Now Midge & Susie are talking about relationships. This isn’t what I signed up for and started watching in the first couple seasons.
The Jason Alexander character and performance is horrible.
Amazing cinematography but an unwatchable Jewish soap opera.
19 mins John Waters brief cameo!!
I started fast forwarding thru bullshit scenes — meaning, all non Mrs. Maisel scenes.

Susie and Midge in conflict again.  Again, this is not what I fell in love with.
33 mins – Midge does routine at strip club.
FBI investigation into some old incidence into Jason Alexander & Abe. Stupid.
I’d read comments that the show died in the 4th season, and they were right. (although I might argue the third season)
44 mins – Jane Lynch shows up again, her character has had a career collapse.
Unsettling height difference between Jane Lynch and Alex Borstein.
This thing completely fell apart in the forth season.
This strip club stuff is so stupid.

Season 4 – episode 5 – (thirty-one) “How to Chew Quietly and Influence People”
I’ve completely lost interest and am skipping ahead thru every non Midge scene.
If this was the first episodes / season — I never would have watched any of this.
Neurotic magician.
More Rose matchmaking storylines — she wants Midge to stop working at the strip club.
Harry Belafonte character sings at Shy Baldwin’s wedding.
Shy and Midge re-meet / hash out her getting fired, replay the Harlem show.

Episode ends with a cliff-hanger when Midge jumps out of a cab

Season 4 – episode 6 – (thirty-two) “Maisel vs. Lennon: The Cut Contest”
Jane Lynch is Sophie Lennon.
Lenny Bruce wakes up at the Midge’s apartment — but he’s an asshole.
Sophie becomes a TV game show host — she becomes a huge rich star, and broke Susie won’t accept a Cadillac as a gift.  Stupid. And unrealistic.
Midge changes the strip club to something nice for women.

At least this was back to a showbiz episode.

Season 4 – final episode 8 – (thirty-four) “How Do You Get To Carnegie Hall?”
Opens with Kevin Pollak in the hospital after the heart attack.

Amazing soundtrack choices throughout entire series.

So many stories are not gonna wrap up. Mae (Joel’s Chinese girlfriend) being dangerous.
Midge turns down opening for Tony Bennett at sold-out run at the Copa. Once again, this is so stupid.
Thousands of loose ends not wrapped up.
More stupid soap opera bullshit about the matchmaker subplot.
The big storyline becomes Rose won’t stop being a matchmaker. Who the fuck cares?

Lenny’s a major part of climax / climactic show.
