Trivia

The first name of Jacqueline's stepdaughter, Xanthippe, is a nod to show-runner Tina Fey's Greek heritage. "Xanthippe" is an ancient Greek name, belonging to several minor figures in Greek mythology, as well as to the historical wife of the philosopher Socrates. The character of Xanthippe on this show is depicted as an extremely difficult and contrary adolescent. The little that appears in Ancient Greek literature about the historical Xanthippe also implies that she was extremely young when she married Socrates, and that she had a difficult and argumentative personality. Antisthenes called Socrates' wife "the hardest to get along with of all the women there are-yes, or all that ever were, I suspect, or ever will be?", though Socrates also says that he specifically wanted a wife who had a challenging personality, which was the reason he chose Xanthippe. The name literally means "yellow horse" ("xanthos" meaning blonde/yellow and "hippos" meaning horse). See more »

Delightfully weird and consistently hilarious
7 March 2015 | by themadmoviemanSee all my reviews

I've never been a big binge watcher, but I was so grabbed by this show right from the first episode that I just couldn't stop.

This show is full of beautifully gleeful charm, with a central character who can't stop smiling and no mean-spirited jokes anywhere in sight. The whole thing is just consistently happy and can really cheer you up within seconds.

I admit that the story does get a little tiresome at some points, where there isn't as much joking, but the series manages to keep reinventing itself in new and fun ways that brings back your interest immediately.

It's also a very subtly clever satire. Whilst the majority of it may seem like silly fun, the back story of the doomsday cult, the theme song and a whole host of other stuff is actually very intelligent, and of course, a lot of fun too.

You've got to watch this series, whether you want to binge it or not, because it's such a refreshingly happy show that stands out amongst the crowd of idiotic sitcoms and burning dramas.
