Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Created by: Robert Carlock, Tina Fey
Starring: Ellie Kemper, Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski
Available on: Netflix



If you, like me, have been re-watching 30 Rock on repeat since its death, you'll be happy to know that you can finally put it on pause and watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt instead. Or in addition to - I don't judge.

Created by Tina Fey & Robert Carlock (both of whom were executive producers of 30 Rock) Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is similar in style and humor but different in its outlook.



Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) has just been rescued from the underground bunker where she's spent her last 15 years. She decides that instead of staying in the small town, she will go and live her life in New York City.



Kidnapped in 1999, remaking her life in 2015 is a bit more difficult than she would have thought. Oblivious to things like iPhones, creeper pedo vans, and math; Kimmy doesn't always know what's going on, but her optimistic outlook on life (and her knowledge of true fear & entrapment) keep her smiling and happy.



Her sunny deposition contagiously catches to those around her as well. When Kimmy finds out that her roomate, Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess), really wants to be a singer, Kimmy sings with him right in Times Square. Her never-ending search for happiness, doesn't just start and end with her. She is always ready to help others in need as well.



With jokes on social structure and over-the-top characters, the show keeps audiences right on laughing. The story is more than just humor and crazy shenanigans. The situations that the characters get up to, do have a sense of purpose and drama, albeit in a light and funny way.



The show starts off a bit slow but by episode three you'll be laughing right along with Kimmy and you'll be invested in the crazy cast of characters.


I give this show 5 out of 5 popcorn.

  10. I'm pretty obsessed with this show. I finished it pretty quickly when I was hungover one day and it put me in the best mood. Not only is the not-to-subtle social commentary brilliant, every single character brings something hilarious to the table. My favorite character is the maid. Rewatch the show and then watch the maid.

  11. I will definitely do that. I remember her a bit but I know that there are probably tons of funny things in the background. Glad it got another season!
