Rachel Brosnahan stars as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, who lives on New York City’s very Jewish Upper West Side in the 1950s. Created by “Gilmore Girls” showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino, and inspired by her Jewish comedian father, the show features jokes about brisket, dreidels and mezuzahs.
The second season, which starts with the show’s stars on a detour in Paris, opens with a Barbra Streisand tune. It also features a Yom Kippur service and a visit to the Borscht Belt Catskills, among other delightfully Jewish moments.
You can watch the entire first and second season on Amazon Prime. If you binge it all in one go, there’s no need to be blue: The show has already been renewed for a third season.
