User Reviews

Such an unlikely combination yields a brilliant result
7 March 2015 | by GvakarianSee all my reviews

Honestly, the two reviews that have been written so far are unreasonable. Unbreakable Kimmy Schimdt is by no means average, poor or unfunny. It shines through in it's originality, tactful balancing of humour and satire and it's absolutely endearing. The premise is strange and does not suggest it's a comedy even for a black comedy it seems like a stretch. A woman escapes a cult after being imprisoned for 15 years and starts a new life in New York City. The pilot begins as the women are being rescued and brought back out to the world after 15 years of imprisonment. It's a very unconventional idea for a comedy yet it exceeds expectations. Ellie Kemper, the subject of this show, is wonderfully quirky, sweet and her performance is enjoyable to watch.

Tina Fey's writing is clearly asserted as the main character, Kimmmy, is a strong, powerful, determined and unbreakable. Co-writer and producer, Robert Carlock, also deserves some credit in this. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is not hidden in 30 Rock's shadow and does not attempt to duplicate results. It works in it's own right and is brilliantly executed. It's tone is gleefully upbeat and light-hearted yet it hints at darker themes and it's implementation of dark comedy is succinct and rewarding. So please don't be so quick to judge. Definitely give it a watch it's worthwhile.
