There is a quirky new comedy from Netflix called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. At first, I wasn’t sure whether to cringe or laugh at the off the wall comedy. The premise is unique, a Mole woman who was in a cult and kept underground for years relocates to New York City and adventure ensues.
I connect with Kimmy, the main character, on several levels. No, I was not held against my will in an underground bomb shelter however I did grow up in a small hamlet of 700 people with no stop light. However, when my high school field hockey team would play against a city high school team they would take shots at our “country style” or farmer’s tans. I felt as if the “city kids” knew everything about clothes, fashion and music and I was playing catch up.
Kimmy sees the bright side of everything when no ones else does and she has the uncanny ability to laugh at herself while trying to find a solution to the issue at hand. I find myself in most situations doing to the same thing. Professionally and personally I try to see the good in the situation or find a creative solution. Kimmy is put in unbelievably funny social situations that made me literally laugh at loud. Tina Fey and Robert Cardlock’s creative minds have created a binge-worthy series, bravo! I cannot wait to watch the next season
This is the first Netflix series that I binge watched twice. I cannot wait for April 15, 2016 when Season 2 begins streaming.
