If House of Cards is boring you this season (is that just me?), don’t give up on binge watching Netflix just yet. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, follows the transition of Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper), who moves to New York City after her rescue from the bunker in Indiana where she has been held captive for fifteen years in a cult by a deranged apocalyptic minister. Arriving in New York City with no job, no money, and no friends, Kimmy decides to stay and finds herself a sketchy pad with roommate Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess) and a shaky job working for trophy wife Jacqueline Voorhees (Jane Krakowski). Oh but don’t worry – this is a comedy.
Kym King, guest reviewer I was excited, just like anyone else, when FOX decided to launch a new show with a diverse cast; set in the world of hip hop, drugs, and the African American community, Empire premiered with amazing ratings. After the premiere of the first episode I was, for lack of a better word, a bit underwhelmed. With a cast like Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, and Gabourey Sidibe, I was expecting…well I don’t know what I was expecting, but it definitely wasn’t this stereotypical hot mess I came across.
