Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is about a woman who is rescued from a doomsday cult and starts life over again in New York City.
Created by Robert Carlock and Tina Fey, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" stars Ellie Kemper as Kimmy Schmidt in this hilarious Netflix show. Also starring is 30 Rock Veteran Jane Krakowski as Jacqueline Voorhees, Tituss Burgess as Titus Andromedon, and Carol Kane as Lillian Kaushtupper.
The show is chock full of amazing guest stars!
You've got Tim Blake Nelson, Tina Fey, Dean Norris, Martin Short, Matt Lauer, and even Jon Hamm plays a significant role!
The plot is this... a doomsday occultist (Jon Hamm) who believed the world would end on June 6th, 2006 (6.6.6), locked four women in a bunker so that they would survive the end of the world. Once the world didn't end, the occultist didn't release the girls, but rather kept up the illusion that the world had actually ended. The four girls are down there for 15 years, and the show opens with them being found and released by a SWAT team. Given their freedom, one of the four women decides theres no better place to start her life over than New York City. That young woman is none other than Kimmy Schmidt.
The show is outrageously fun and cleverly written! Basically if you're a fan of 30 Rock, Tina Fey, sarcasm, and just plain silliness, this show is going to be your new obsession. What makes it even better? Well its a Netflix made show! That means binge watching the entire first season!!! GO BINGE! GO!!!
We follow Kimmy throughout her journey trying to live a new normal life in NYC. Unbeknownst to her, NYC is where all the non-"normal" people live! Each episode is titled some variation of "Kimmy does a thing"! ex: "Kimmy Gets a Job" "Kimmy Goes to School" "Kimmy Has a Birthday". All normal things Kimmy has missed out on from being locked in an nuclear bunker.
She learns how to take a selfie...it doesn't go well...
She also has her first meal outside of the bunker!
She shows us how responsible she can be...
Annett how silly she can be....
She even shows us how hard it is to adapt to a whole new and unfamiliar world.
And that being different is good, and that idea should be fought for!
The show is full of constant laughs! I found a good portion of the show relatable to myself...
All in all, its an excellent show to binge watch! Ellie Kemper is adorable as you might remember from her seasons as Erin on The Office. She plays Kimmy perfectly and is quite hilarious. Lots of modern day references go over her head since she wasn't around for current pop culture. She also says things like "far out", and many other outdated sayings which come off as awkward and silly.
All that being said...I DEMAND MORE KIMMY SCHMIDT!!!...Please? Thanks!
Actually the general public agrees with me! The consensus was so positive that almost immediately after Season 1 came out, it was renewed for Season 2!
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2 is filming this Summer, so hopefully we'll see more of the show later this year or early next year.
Check out Season 1 on Netflix RIGHT NOW!!!! GO GO GO!!!!
