The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Strike Up the Band - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Midge is doing her skit for the soldiers she is pretending to read articles off a magazine. Yet instead of flipping the magazine, she is swiping as if reading off a smartphone.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Joel is about to start his show a woman in front holds a cigarette with her right hand. In the immediate next angle she's holding it with her left hand.

Show generally

Factual error: Taxicabs appearing in various scenes show that they are fitted with side marker lights on the fenders. Those were not used on American cars until 1968.

Season 1 generally

Factual error: In the Greenwich Village record shop, the vinyl records are shown with polythene sleeves. At that time, vinyl LP's were always factory sealed in cellophane shrink (unless it was later removed), not poly sleeves.


Doink - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: While Midge's dad is questioning her about her new job, Midge starts buttering her toast with some jam. But in the following shot there is no jam on her toast.


Thank You and Good Night - S1-E8

Deliberate mistake: In a flashback to the Maisels' wedding reception (about 1953) Midge surprises Joel by having hired professional dancers, who are shown performing the well-known "Bottle Dance" (the part where they slide on their knees). This dance routine, which is often performed at Jewish weddings and other social events, was actually choreographed by Jerome Robbins for the musical, "Fiddler on the Roof," which debuted on Broadway in 1964. The dance did not exist at the time of Joel and Midge's wedding, but, as an inside joke, while Midge watches the dancers, she says, "That's really good. They should do something with that."

Look, She Made a Hat - S2-E7

Archie [after Joel's celebratory speech to his staff]: Such a strange mixture of happiness and horror.
Mrs. Moscowitz: Clearly you're not Jewish, dear.
