By this point we’re into character-driven drama, but the cast and writers bring their all to the final season and leave it all out there to tie up the story. A couple of self-indulgent conceits follow the retirement and closing the arcs to “present day”, and Midge demonstrates yet again that she’s a Tour De Force. It seems wrong to say that my favourite characters are Moishe Maisel and Abe Weissman (Kevin Pollak and Tony Shalhoub) in the face of such strong lead women (Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein), but the fathers are just the top dressing and I’m going to miss them all (but especially those two) dearly.
