Mrs. Maisel wraps up an incredible series on Amazon Prime Video with a good final season. Not a great one.
However, all good things must end. And this final season, season 5, is as good as you can get from a period show about a female comic. We get to see how Midge ended up, her children, her parents, her ex-husband, and her manager… Suzi.
Mixing time periods is never a promising idea to be honest. Just check Citadel, another Prime Video production. But, when you do it carefully, like this season, it becomes an asset. Filling in the gaps in the future while moving the current story forward, Rachel shined once again.
Even though this is not my favorite season of this show, I loved it as a perfect ending to a perfect show. Mrs. Maisel is bowing out at the height of the show’s success while still giving us, the viewers, a great laugh.
