Disclosure: I attended The Marvelous Mr. Maisel event hosted by Comcast (it was a blast), and this post is sponsored by Comcast. All opinions are, and will always be, my own.
What a marvelous night!
Great people, food, drink…and the first episode of Season Two of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! So fancy, and so unlike how I normally watch, well, anything, really. And, yes, I had already
binge watched, I mean, done my homework. So the second season aired December 5th, the event was on the December 12th, and there are ten episodes. You do the math. Really.
Are you a fan? It’s fast, funny, witty, and with more than a sprinkling of swear words (all that you’d expect from Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of another family favorite, The Gilmore Girls) with a wonderful, talented cast, and a dream of an apartment.
In our house, we have discussions over what we call “the big tv” and resultant take-over of the family room, but usually everyone is on their own devices, be it phone, tablet or computer. And some of us even like the same shows – even if we watch them at different times and at different rates (hello, my family of binge watchers).
Do we have favorites? Of course! On Netflix: Grace and Frankie, The Crown, Queer Eye, Chef’s Table, or re-watching Friends, Gilmore Girls, and The Office. On Amazon Prime we have both new favorites – The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Homecoming, Forever, Catastrophe, The Romanoffs, and old favorites like Downton Abbey, Suits,The Americans, Victoria, House, Friday Night Lights, and Monk.
And we just may already be super users of Amazon Prime, just maybe.
Did you know #Xfinity is the only provider to have Amazon Prime, Netflix and YouTube? And all now available at not even the touch of a button, but with voice command on Comcast’s Xfinity X1? Seriously, if you have X1, you can just say, “Watch The Romanoffs,” ”Show me The Big Sick,” or “Find comedies” into the voice remote. Or launch the Prime Video app by saying “Amazon Prime Video” into the voice remote, or zip on over to the X1 apps menu. You mean I can watch Mrs. Maisel on the big tv now? That’s awesome!
You can download the app and watch all of your favorites from your phone, tablet or computer, too. With Xfinity apps like Stream you can stream your X1 DVR recordings while you’re on the go, you can also download and watch them anytime (for when you don’t access to wifi).
Well, I love Amazon Prime Video and love the new features of Xfinity – check them out for yourself here –
