Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 1 Review

Preface

  • Ironically the entire first season of this show was available on the same day in March.
  • Completely contrary to that, here’s my review of it three months late!
  • But nevertheless, Kimmy Schmidt is a super quirky, likable, and FUNNY show that dropped its first season on Netflix a few months ago.
    • Yeah I’ll have that Daredevil Review to you guys three months late too…

Premise

  • So Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is, as I said, a Netflix show originally ordered by NBC (more on that later) which seems kind of strange that a network would order a show of this premise.
  • The show is about a young woman, Kimmy Schmidt, who has been in underground captivity with fellow members of a cult for the past 15 years or so.
  • Then she’s rescued and decides to head to New York, because since she doesn’t really fit into modern society she might as well go to the place where no one really fits in.
  • Then from there we go into her different escapades in the city including romances, school, jobs, and more.
  • And it’s one of the funniest shows I’ve seen in a long while.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – Movie Review

Preface

  • This movie is going to be compared A LOT to The Fault in Our Stars.
  • I actually don’t see it that way.
  • I see it more as The Spectacular Now meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and seeing as those are two of my all-time favorite films this movie was pretty good I’d say!

Premise

  • Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a film that premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and is one that I actually got to catch a week or two early (depending on when it’s released in your area).
  • The film is about high school senior Greg who’s trying to navigate around high school and understand each of the social groups, but in the meantime his kinda acquaintance Rachel is diagnosed with leukemia. He also makes film parodies with his friend Earl (hey, they’re all in the title!) about the classics.
  • But there’s really so much happening in this movie that’s ultimately so much grander than I described that it’s hard to summarize in just a couple of bullet points.
