For the sake of time, let’s just go ahead and acknowledge the greatness that is Tina Fey. She is without a doubt one of the true wonders of the world. The woman is a pop culture miracle worker; I mean, we can thank her for Mean Girls. She gives so much all to entertain our simple minds.
So now that you’ve been fired for forgetting to go to work thanks to House of Cards, you may as well put the final nail in the coffin that is your social life as well, and watch Tina’s latest project, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
The show somehow manages to make fun of our generation, poking fun at our technology dependence and that sort of thing, while also catering specifically to us.
What’s the only thing anyone of our generation loves more than ourselves? The time period in which we were born, duh. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt plays right to that weak spot. Since Kimmy has been kept in an underground bunker for the past several years, she’s still all about scrunchies, her Jansport backpack, and the mad lingo attached to the 80’s and 90’s. She’s an episode of Saved By The Bell living in modern day New York City, which simply fuels any natural human being’s obsession with the show.
As if New York were ever not going to be the most popular city ever, it’s certainly received an extra extra bit of attention lately thanks to the likes of say, Taylor Swift. The NYC backdrop for Kimmy’s stumbling through life only helps to feed our pop culture addiction even more by referencing almost every other television show or movie made in the city. Well played, Tina and Co., well played. I am a Netflix subscriber; obviously I love entertainment. You sly, sly dog.
And of course, if you’re not just looking for a show chock full of brilliant references infused with subtly scathing satire, but actually believe what you’re watching should still have some feel good story line then you’re still in luck. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt caters to our most timeless need for a happy ending as well. I mean, I’m sort of assuming; I haven’t made it through the whole season in one day or anything. Seriously, I haven’t, but the night is young.
So watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and let me know how much you love it in the comments below.
