16 Easter Eggs You Probably Didn’t Notice In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Amy Sherman-Palladino is known for many things: flamboyant hats, mile-a-minute monologues, the coffee dependency that defined a generation, and blink-and-you-miss-them pop culture references, to name a few. These are found in droves in her most recent television success The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Maisel, for the uninitiated, is an Emmy-winning Amazon Prime series that follows a 1950s housewife who finds herself pursuing standup comedy after being left by her husband. But, honestly, if you didn’t already know that, why are you here? The Gilmore Girls DVD box sets came with handy-dandy guides to literally every reference the characters made in every episode to help those of us who aren’t obscure pop culture encyclopedias follow every joke (and, I guess, eventually become obscure pop culture encyclopedias). As you could imagine, the guides’ fonts were very, very small. Maisel, unfortunately, has no such guide, leaving a lot of its intricate details to be seen only by the repeat-viewers or people with a strange knowledge of the 1950s. Luckily for you all, I’m am strongly the former and weakly the latter, so I’ve compiled a list of some of the best Marvelous Mrs. Maisel easter eggs you probably missed.
