TV Show Review: The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


Well, Tina Fey has done it again.

Tina Fey is my idol. I’ve admired her through SNL, through “30 Rock,” through “Mean Girls.” Her book, “Bossypants” is perfect. I literally laughed out loud when I read it. Who actually laughs out loud when they read things. The most we do is blow air through our noses a little harder than usual.

While “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” came to Netflix quietly, I was not quiet. I showed it to everyone. I rewatched the first four episodes with my best friend to make sure she saw how brilliant it is.

It’s funny and quirky and adorable. You spend half your time laughing because everything is so ridiculous and then realize how good their advice is–even when they are acting crazy.

The theme song alone is enough to make me want to watch the next episode–just so I can hear it again.

The only problem with “Kimmy Schmidt” is the abrupt ending. The final few episodes leave the audience in a bit of a lurch–and when the show gets a second season, we aren’t going to know where each of the characters stories are going to be picked up.

But these problems don’t stop Kimmy Schmidt. I mean, she’s unbreakable.
