Netflix has nailed it out of the park with House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Everyone has been raving about House of Cards while The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has gone completely ignored. I had not heard a single thing about it before I was sitting in front of my tv trying to get homework done and realized there was no way I was going to get homework done watching House of Cards. I saw that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has Jane Krakowski and Ellie Kemper from The Office, and thought that a comedy would be great background noise.
The show was supposed to be picked up by NBC and didn’t happen, thankfully in the end Netflix picked it up. They didn’t really advertise it. It came out on March 6th and until I watched it I had never even heard about it.
Now I love Tiny Fay. I loved 30 Rock. I think she writes funny jokes and this show is no exception. It is taking Netflix by storm because it is funny and well written and enjoyable. There are so many jokes that make you bust up laughing. It’s just so ridiculous in so many points that you can’t help but enjoy yourself. I have made every single person I have talked to this week watch the first episode. I have 2 of those people message me and tell me they marathoned the show because of it.
So if you like Ellie Kemper, Tina Fay, hilarious jokes, then this show is definitely a watch me. If not watch something else. But I would say give this show a chance you won’t be sorry.
