If you have yet to hear of this show, you’ve probably been living in a bunker for 15 years. So get the local SWAT team to rescue you, sign on to your best friend’s netflix account and get to watching.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt comes to us from the beloved Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. The two famously teamed up as the creators of NBC smash hit, and one of the loves of my life, 30 Rock. This show was originally due to air on NBC, but they sold the show to Netflix where all 3 episodes debuted on March 7, 2015.
The show follows the life of Kimmy Scmidt, a woman who was rescued from a bunker in rural Indiana from the grasps of a post-apocalyptic-believing reverend and cult leader. On a press trip to New York City, she decides to stay and try and rebuild her life in the big city. She gets a job, goes to school, and kind of finds love along the way.
I absolutely loved this show and binged it over a weekend. It has the same clever humour that you loved in 30 Rock, and the packed-full-of-jokesness you adored in Arrested Development. For such a dark premise, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is surprisingly uplifting and bright. I thought it was a lot of fun to witness her journey in NYC and trying to figure out how live her life in 2015. I definitely recommend checking this one out.
