Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful television show without losing her mind.
Finding out that their husbands are not just work partners, but have also been romantically involved for the last twenty years, two women with an already strained relationship try to cope with the circumstances together.
After being rescued from an underground bunker in which she lived the past fifteen years, Kimmy Schmidt decides to move to New York City to have a normal life. She makes friends with her new roommate Titus, and works as a babysitter for Jacqueline Voorhees, the wife of a billionaire with many issues. Even though many obstacles are thrown her way, Kimmy makes the best of her new life while having to adapt to the new world around her.Written by
Multiple references are made to Jon Hamm's role as Don Draper on Mad Men (2007) including Kimmy saying he "claimed he wrote the 'buy the world a Coke' commercial" and calling him a "mad man". See more »

Newest show from Netflix is a hit. A very enjoyable light series that keeps the comedy rolling while exploring a much deeper drama. This is your new "go to" show when you just need a reason to smile. As for smiles, Ellie Kemper's is as genuine and heartwarming as they come.
One should not expect to either be rolling on the ground or crying in their pillow while watching. There are some side-splitting lines though, and there are some dramatic portions that will allow you to connect with the characters on a deeper level. This is a light comedy / drama and makes for excellent light TV watching.
This show fills a void that has been much missed from recent TV. Today's comedies are often slapstick with canned laugh tracks, or deep drama that evoke hardly a giggle throughout. This show marries the best of both world together and provides a genuinely enjoyable experience. This show will not change the world, feed the hungry, or raise social awareness about anything except the plight of "Mole Women" everywhere. It will leave you smiling, and in today's times, that is enough for me.
