By now you’ve heard of the unforgettable, unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. And if you haven’t, we can’t be friends.
Sweet, naïve Kimmy learns to navigate the Big Apple after being imprisoned for 15 years by a cult leader. We cheerfully watch as her Midwestern foibles charm her charismatic, gay roommate, Titus, her eccentric landlady, Lillian and even the New York upper crust, in the form of disgruntled divorcee, Jacqueline.
To watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, is to allow yourself a brief respite from the ordinary. There’s no thinking involved. No big drama. Just a lot of silly play-on-words, vivid colours and jazzy musical numbers. But leave it to Kimmy to still find time for teachable moments such as these 15 life truths. And that’s only from Season 2!

*In the interest of full disclosure: I would like to point out that I have been a hardcore Netflix fan — and written about it — since before it was considered cool. The only difference now is, as a member of Netflix Canada’s #StreamTeam, I receive some fun, free goodies in exchange for my candid monthly posts. Cool, eh?
