You don’t even have to have an Amazon Prime membership!
Listen up, Gilmore Girls fans without Amazon Prime memberships (or, generally, anyone else who loves well-done, well-acted, humorous period pieces!). If you haven’t had the chance to dive into Amy Sherman-Palladino’s newest show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, this weekend is your big chance. In honor of the show winning the Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy TV series and for lead actress Rachel Brosnahan winning Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV series, Amazon Prime Video is making the first season for free all weekend. Yes, free!
Starting Friday, January 12, at 12:01 a.m. local time and ending on Monday, January 15, local time, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will be accessible for free online on amazon.com/maisel, or via the Prime Video app, available on TVs, connected devices, and mobile devices.
For those who haven’t caught the wildly charming trailer, the show is about a woman whose life turns upside down when her husband decides to leave her, and she decides to become a stand-up comedian. The show also stars Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen, and Marin Hinkle.
Don’t think you’ll have enough time to finish? Think again. According to a press release from Amazon, more than half of Prime members who watched the show finished it within three days—just enough time to squeeze in the eight-episode season over the holiday weekend.
