The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Review: Gilmore Girls Banter Meets Vintage Woody Allen, With a Feminist Twist

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Review: Gilmore Girls Banter Meets Vintage Woody Allen, With a Feminist Twist
Amy Sherman-Palladino’s characters are always so casually witty, it’s about time one of them actually tried being funny for a living, right?

The Gilmore Girls creator’s sparkling new Amazon comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel — debuting Wednesday, Nov. 29 — is set in the burgeoning stand-up comedy scene of 1958 New York City, and that time period is such a perfect fit for Sherman-Palladino’s old-Hollywood, rat-a-tat-tat dialogue, you wonder why she ever set anything in modern times. The pilot introduces us to Midge (Rachel Brosnahan), a quirky, quippy Jewish spitfire in the Lorelai Gilmore mold. (She’s the type who

‘Will & Grace’ Creators Reveal Rejected Ideas for the Revival, and the Truth About Mike Pence — Turn It On Podcast

‘Will & Grace’ Creators Reveal Rejected Ideas for the Revival, and the Truth About Mike Pence — Turn It On Podcast
The recent “Will & Grace” episode “Grandpa Jack” included a storyline in which a young boy is forced to attend a “conversion” camp after his religious parents fear he may be gay. The joke, of course, is the camp is run by two obviously closeted leaders, played by real-life openly gay actors Jane Lynch and Andrew Rannells.

It was classic “Will & Grace” — poking at a real-life issue and injustice, but with plenty of humor. The episode also happened to air the same week that Donald Trump made headlines for reportedly making a quip that Vice President Mike Pence wanted to “hang” all gays.

“How is that not somebody who’s gay?” Mutchnick said of Pence. “Who gives a shit about someone that much? It’s just crazy, I can’t imagine caring that much about who somebody sleeps with as long as they’re of age.”

Will Truman and Vince D’Angelo’s story isn’t quite finished.

Bobby Cannavale is set to return to Will & Grace later this season as Eric McCormack’s love interest from the original series, Vince. The reunion for the exes comes after Harry Connick Jr.’s guest spot on this week’s episode, which saw some closure for his character, Leo, and Grace (Debra Messing).

“I don’t want to give too much away, but I love what happens in the Vince episode,” McCormack spills to Et. “It's an interesting way to bring an old lover back. There is a kind of closure, mostly because we can't afford Bobby Cannavale all the time. But, yeah, it's gonna be. It's a really and satisfying episode.”
