It's interesting....but it always feels like a 20 minute show expanded to an hour by repeating everything 3 times.  I wish they'd follow one story and run it from end to start (because it's always going backward in time).  Finish one...move on.  The constant switching of stories is frustrating and boring.
 
I would probably do the sequences the way you describe but I don't really mind the pacing the way they do it - it doesn't bore me.  I imagine they want to have the different phases and conclusions to compare close to one another, so I see why they do it that way.  What often frustrates me about historical narration (on that show and elsewhere) is when they continually speak of the past in present tense (aka "historical present").  "..so it's a frosty October morning in 1066, and King Harold II is in a hurry and forgets to pack his safety goggles before he marches his army  to meet William the Conqueror at Hastings..." It is often distracting and sounds pretentious to me, but it's not done to extremes on that show and seems a little more appropriate when they do it.
Apparently I'm not alone in that opinion.

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey


Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is a 2014 American science documentary television series. The show is a follow-up to the 1980 television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which was presented by Carl Sagan on the Public Broadcasting Service and is considered a milestone for scientific documentaries.

It is available online (viewing and download) here.

Justine puts on Mrs. Maisel and I have been paying more and more attention to it. Season 3 Ep. 1 has some really interesting camera work, including a long opening single shot and a few other long uncut takes, and those made them set it all up like a stage production, not the usual edit/splice tape show. Some other episodes play around with quick edits, some West-Wing-style walk & talk dialog scenes... they're either doing homages to everything they love, or they're losing their grip... I get the feeling the show's about to jump the shark... every episode. But so far it's only gotten better.

Some of the characters are based on real people but aren't actually supposed to be that person (Johnny Mathis, Carol Kaye, Minnie Pearl), some (Lenny Bruce) are named specifically. So that's fun. 

Four Stars. Joe Bob says Check it out.
 

Guess we will have to sign up for long enough to stream season 3. I agree that it always seems to be teetering on going over the edge but so far has not.
 

Fwiw the Palladinos (husband and wife) are the creators and showrunners for Mrs. Maisel and were the same for "Gilmore Girls", a very popular dramedy in the US back in the oughts. Same type of comedy:  slightly cock-eyed take on unusual to almost improbable situations and relationships. 

The dialogue in the two shows are sorta the same: rat a tat tat cleverness verging on the surreal at times. Both great great shows and a welcome change from all the dark shows being made.
 

Mrs. Maisel is wonderful. I'm only part way through Season 3 but it keeps getting better.

Loved the scene in season 1 (I think it was the first episode) where Midge gets very drunk and kills with an impromptu stand-up/striptease performance at the Gaslight Cafe.

Nobody
glowers like Tony Shalhoub.

If you're into slick teen dramas that occasionally veer into the realm of laughably stupidly improbable, "Riverdale" is pretty good.

matt was tough but festus punked him constantly...

Matt - “Right now I gotta meet the stage.”

Festus - “Matthew that stage ain’t due in for another hour and you know that. Anyway Miss Kitty’s only been away 3 weeks.”

Matt - “Closer to four.”

I just binged the 1st 3 seasons of The Man in the High Castle. Apparently they've signed on for season 4. Each season got a little less interesting but maybe I just got too in tune with how their formula worked. Formulaic and gratuitous and beautiful and revolting. I recommend it with some reservations, but the positives are so great. Beautifully shot, violent but thoughtful... the premise is that the US lost WWII, and the Nazis are in charge of the east coast, Japan the west. When they melt down the Liberty Bell and cast a giant swastika, it made me shudder, even though they foreshadowed it many episodes earlier.

But in the last episode (or 2nd to last), there was a scene of riots by the nazi youth (gov't approved in that world), the police (again, nazis) were going to quell the riots but Himmler said to let them have their fun. And they cut to a scene of young men in slacks and collared shirts, carrying torches, and boy did it look a lot like the real life Charlottesville.
And in both cases, they were chanting "Blood and Soil."
 

The novel it's based on (by Philip K. Dick) was a huge fave of mine when I was a kid, so I'm totally biased — but I think this is one of the best things on TV recently. Or ever, maybe. 

If you have even a passing interest in the whole alt-history thing, I'd highly recommend it. 
 
There are some great performances. {spoiler deleted} I put down what I'm doing when Rufus Sewell, DJ Qualls (!), Joel de la Fuente are on. Chief Inspector Kido *shudder*
=====

But I do wonder if life was imitating art down there in Charlottesville.
 

SFW—agree with your take that Man in the High Castle is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. The climax of season 2 was overwhelming. I don't know if Dick's estate/inheritors get any royalties from all the movie adaptations of his novels but if they do they're rolling in it.

Bill—have you checked out Rufus Sewell in the detective series "Zen"? He also does a great turn as Lord Melbourne, Prime Minister and advisor/crush of young Queen Victoria in "Victoria."
