    "I decided to give The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel a look after a friend said it's the best Amazon original series they've yet to see. I've watched good stuff on Amazon before so I figured it would be worth a watch. I was wrong. While some might see this as Amazon's best, I saw it as anachronistic and highly unrealistic, especially considering it's set in the 1950s. I'm tired of shows that insert present day values into the past."

    "The movie is a coming of age from the 80's. If is well put together and gets the era down pretty well. There is some good nostalgia in this but it did not appeal ot me personally. The environment and the people were ones that could not relate to. Glad to watch once, but would not see again"

    "While looking through Amazon's original series, I picked up Good Girls Revolt since it had extremely high ratings. Unfortunately this was a case of something being significantly overhyped, the script felt unrealistic, the characters were flat, and it was packed with annoying melodrama. Even if I had liked it more, the show ended up getting canceled halfway through the first story arc."

    "Comrade Detective. Easily the most absurd entry on our list, Comrade Detective is like a buddy-cop movie, except those buddies are Romanian and set during the late Cold War. The Grand Tour. The Man in The High Castle. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. New Yorker Presents. One Mississippi. Red Oaks. Sneaky Pete."

    "This is a great TV series. It's really funny but a very specific sense of humor. If you like dark comedy and comedy for the thinking person, then you will enjoy this show. it's based around her mother's death so it's a little odd to be talking about it as a comedy, but you won't be disappointed.
