A Series of Unfortunate Events Review

If the definition of a sadist is someone who enjoys seeing the pain of others, then A Series of Unfortunate Events has already begun creating a whole new generation of little sociopaths.

In Netflix’s new adaptation of the Lemony Snicket book series, three children (Violet, Klaus, and Sunny) discover that their parents have perished in a terrible fire.

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.
