Netflix Original Series: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
A review of the Netflix Original Series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
The series follows 29-year-old Kimmy Schmidt as she adjusts to life in New York City after her rescue from a doomsday cult in Indiana. The pilot opens with her rescue from the cult’s underground bunker, where she and three other women were held by Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne for 15 years. Determined to be seen as something other than a victim and armed only with a positive attitude, Kimmy decides to restart her life by moving to New York City. She quickly finds a roommate, struggling actor Titus Andromedon, and gains a job as a nanny for the melancholy and out-of-touch socialite Jacqueline Vorhees. With their help, Kimmy struggles to adapt to an unfamiliar world and jump-start the adult life that had been taken from her.
Sullywood Rating: 8/10
Like the expression on Kimmy’s face throughout the show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt provides and joy and happiness for it’s viewers throughout it’s entirety. I personally love every single aspect of this show and is one of the few comedies where I have zero complaints about.
Whether it’s the fantastic dialog, I mean the script and delivery is absolutely A+. In fact, watch each season more than once, because lord knows you will miss some of the quick quipped remarks by UKS’s array of characters.
Speaking of characters. I love every single one of them as well. I can’t complain about a single character, something that I find very hard not to do in a when discussing a show. Titus Andromedon’s every second of screen time makes watching this show worth it. He has quickly become one of my favorite characters on TV and I don’t doubt the same would be said by others. He’s clearly the breakout star of this show and the contrast between Kimmy and Titus is brilliant to watch.
This is one show that is absolutely binge worthy. So go watch it….right now!!!! Oh one more thing, good luck getting the song’s catchy theme song out of your head.
