While “Mrs. Maisel” has the luxury of ending an episode when it likes (some are more like hour-long network affairs), it doesn’t seem padded or stretched. Action plays out quickly and lounge shows don’t go on forever.
In the process of exonerating Jewell, Clint Eastwood also manages to take a broad swipe at reporter Kathy Scruggs. Because Scruggs isn’t around to defend herself, Eastwood’s storytelling is just as questionable as the case against Jewell.
