Trivia

The Italian family in Susie's apartment hums the tune "Funiculì, funiculà" written in 1880 by Giuseppe Turco and Luigi Lenza to honor the inauguration of the Vesuvius funicular, which took people to the top of the famous volcano located near Naples, Italy. "Funiculì, funiculà" is one of the most famous Neapolitan songs ever. See more »

Is this even the same show?
4 January 2019 | by jenifer-m99See all my reviews

This episode was so disappointing. All of a sudden Midge has become a modern day, post ERA, Amy Schumer-esque shock comic? The writing of this episode is awful. They're constantly using words and phrases that simply didn't exist in the 1950's. Midge and Susie constantly degrade, humiliate and curse at men as if that were an option in those days. Yelling the F word across the deli? When that type of language got Midge arrested in Season 1? More than once? It's just getting ridiculous. I won't expect a season 3 at this rate.
