Why The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is brilliant — from a scientific perspective
Astrophysics professor Adam Frank says he’s enamored with the Amazon series. “For me, as a scientist, one of the ways it's specifically brilliant is its exploration of the human capacity for genius, that rare flash of excellence and what its possession demands,” he says. “Whether its science, art, or comedy — genius just happens. An invitation to consider those happenings, is one of the gems The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel offers.” Frank adds: “The show offers something more than just a tired trope about ‘genius is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.’ Instead, it also unpacks the capacity for genius to simply erupt unbidden with all the chaos that can follow. “
