However, their move this year to Amazon from a local station will allow their fans from around the world to stream the event live.”

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Review: ‘Gilmore Girls’ Creator Turns an Amazon Period Piece into a Feminist Rallying Cry
In addition to its admittedly impressive on-screen attributes, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” could pull off something even more marvelous: Amy Sherman-Palladino’s new series is so charming, so smart, and so exuberantly feminine, it very well could unite fans who are still raging over Rory Gilmore’s final four words and those who insist she should never speak again.

Ok, probably not. Though the world’s persistent demand for resurrecting nostalgia will keep revival chatter active for, well, forever, this new series is a worthy creative follow-up on its own accord.
