I didn't see a post about it yet.

Sarah and I started watching it the other day. It's pretty fantastic. It's very funny at times but also pretty eye opening to the time period.

Anyone else watched it?

Never heard of it. 9/10 on imdb so far.

It's the late 1950s and Miriam "Midge" Maisel has everything she has ever wanted -- the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant apartment on New York's Upper West Side. Her seemingly idyllic life takes a surprising turn when she discovers a hidden talent she didn't previously know she had -- stand-up comedy. This revelation changes her life forever as she begins a journey that takes her from her comfortable life on the Upper West Side through the cafes and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she makes her way through the city's comedy industry on a path that could ultimately lead her to a spot on the "Tonight Show" couch. The series was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino ("Gilmore Girls").

I was going to start this last night but bailed when I saw it was 60 minutes. I wasn't wanting to stay up that late.
