Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Reviews & Ratings

30 minutes

After 15 years of living in a cult, the unbreakable and wide-eyed Kimmy is rescued along with three other women, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the "Today" show. Before getting back on the bus to Indiana, however, Kimmy decides it's time to reclaim her life. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she's ready to take on New York City.

This show is Soooo great, currently binge watching it, and I can't stop! Finally an adorkable comedy without a laugh track that never feels like it's trying too hard(ala Odd Couple or New Girl). Netflix you have done it again, pure genius!

*And can I just say, this show has the most awesome TV theme song that i have ever heard^^, such a cathcy auto-tune, lol.*

This was a joy to watch. Funny, irreverent, silly. I must admit that when I heard the theme of the show I wasn't sure it would work, but I was wrong. Netflix managed to make fun of so many things in 13 short half-hour episodes and they got the tone spot on. It dealt with religious cults, small town hicks, racism, sexism, and class-ism. If you had told me that I was going to find a story about an ex-member of an apocalyptic religious cult's life in New York with her gay, black room-mate, her murdering, drug dealing landlady and her racist Native American employer, I would have told you that you were out of your mind! But it was the funniest thing I've watched in a while. All of the negative traits were dealt with in an intelligent and insightful way. The main characters learn a lot about themselves and it is touching and funny in the process. I really hope that Netflix does a second season.

So much fun to watch! Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's a spot on comedy with so much goofiness and wit in every minute that you will crack up at pretty much any joke. The charming spark that Ellie Kemper brings along with Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski is so lovable you can't help but feel happy the whole time.

A positive comedy that focuses on optimism, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a treat to watch. This show is spirited, cute, and more often than not really funny.

I couldn't get through the first episode ... I guess I'm just getting too old for this type of comedy.. I found it senseless and boring and not at all funny. Untracking as we speak

I really like Tina Fey, so I'd hoped for better than this... it is just okay, something to pass the time if you have free time. If not, skip it and watch a comedy that will actually make you laugh. I wish that I loved this, but I don't.
UPDATE: So I decided to watch season 2, and just had it playing in the background while doing stuff around the house and I finally laughed during episode 9. To be sure it wasn't a fluke, I paid closer attention for ep. 10 and laughed. then I began to wonder if it was just because Tina Fey shows up in back episodes, since Tina Fey delivers her comedic lines so well. Season 2 is better. Not as much as I'd hoped, but enough for me to increase my 1.5 rating to a 2.5.

This is a surprisingly addictive, light series! At first I was unsure about it but I did enjoy it. It is not the best show around but still worth a watch.

Great first season. The humour is witty and relevant, but nothing less is expected from Tina Fey. The build up of the story line is executed perfectly. Probably the best introduction video and song I have seen in ages! Stay unbreakable, Kimmy Schmidt.
