Addictive, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Confession, I still have not started the third season of House of Cards, but I did binge all thirteen episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt over the weekend. The show was originally slated for NBC's midseason lineup, but was sold to Netflix. A transaction we can all agree was in our (the viewer's) favor, because Netflix has guaranteed at least two seasons of this delightful hit (sadly the second season will not be out until 2016)

I, myself, have no regrets over my recent binge. The show instantly had me at "created by Robert Carlock.and Tina Fey. Then there was the actual show itself. The show centers around the 29 (soon to be 30), Kimmy Schmidt, who was just rescued from the bunker of a doomsday cult. She was kidnapped when she was 14 and held underground with three other women under the belief that the Apocalypse had occurred.

Needless to say, Kimmy does not want to return to her hometown in Indiana (where they refer to to four kidnappees as "Mole Women") and instead embarks out on her own in New York. There Kimmy makes friend with Titus (Tituss Burgess), Lillian (Carol Kane), Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski), and Dong (Ki Hong Lee), to name a few. Kimmy's positive attitude and 90s references / slang bring out the best sides of all her friends. Together they are "unbreakable" as they weave their ways through career, life changes, love, and ridiculous aspects of our culture and society.

If you enjoyed such shows as Pushing Daises, Parks and Rec, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, and 30 Rock, then I am pretty sure Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the show for you. Check out the trailer below, but remember, the show is only available from Netflix
