Trivia

After Midge gets off the stage in the Paris nightclub, the former New Yorker who has been acting as her translator hands her a card and says, "Here's the card for my psychiatrist who just moved from Boston to New York. He's done wonders for Sylvia Plath." Sylvia Plath was a poet and novelist, best known for her novel "The Bell Jar." She committed suicide at the age of 30 by gassing herself in her kitchen oven, after several previous, unsuccessful attempts at killing herself. See more »

Goofs

There are many errors in the telephone switchboard featured in this episode. First of all, it's a toll switchboard, which would only be found in a telephone company building, and not in a department store.

The switchboard has calculagraphs, used by long distance operators to time calls; and key-pulse sets instead of the rotary dials needed on an actual department store switchboard of the era. The line and trunk lamps on the switchboard are illuminated and flash in a totally unrealistic manner.

Worst of all are the large, bright, bare light bulbs suck in front of every operator. No switchboard ever had such lights; if they did, it would blind the operator to the actual indicators. See more »

Still Marvelous, Thank God!

"Here's the card of a psychiatrist who just moved to New York from Boston. He's done wonders for my friend Sylvia Plath".

It's always slightly nerve wracking seeing how follow up seasons are handled, but alas, here there was no need to worry. The first episode of season 2 is exceptional. All the things that made season 1 great - cinematography, music, smart dialogue - are found here in abundance. It's startlingly beautiful and witty and intelligent, yet nothing feels superfluous or overambitious.

Marin Hinkle glistens in Paris as the newly liberated Mrs. Weissman; Michael Zegen brings more emotional depth to Joel and Alex Borstein's portrayal of Susie is as genius as ever.

Watch it, then recommend it to anyone known to watch anything.
