TV Review: Here’s Why “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Won Two Golden Globes
- A look at Jane Jacobs’ early protest movement against Robert Moses’ efforts to build a highway through Washington Square Park in the Village.
- Fashion in the 1950s. Those full-skirted dresses with pinched-in waists in brilliant colors, worn with crinoline underskirts. (Really.) And Midge never goes out without a hat and gloves.
- Tony Shalhoub as Midge’s obsessive-compulsive math professor father.
- Jane Lynch in a cameo as a comic named Sophie Lennon, who performs in a fat suit as Sophie from Queens.
- The vibe of New York and Greenwich Village in the '50s.
