| A show that is worth the watch
Firstly a heads up: I like Tina Fey. I like her way of seeing the world and her ability to make fun of very subtle things in a very blunt way. And I love 30 Rock. If you do too you'll appreciate Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. If you don't you'll fall in love with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and watch all 7 seasons of 30 Rock in one sitting.

You'll know the story of Kimmy Schmidt by now, so I'll not get into that. What I'll rather talk about is the magnificent performance of Ellie Kemper as Kimmy. I've first seen and enjoyed her in The Office but that's the first time I've seen her as a lead actress. And I must say, she does a really good job as the girl who shields the cruelty of life with a big smile and an almost childish appreciation of the world.

As in 30 Rock there is no room for subtlety in the way the characters are portrayed. Apart form Kimmy, Jane Krakowski as Jacqueline plays the rich, pretentious snob (very similar to her role as Jenna Maroney in 30 Rock), Kimmy's room mate Titus is a giant singing gay man with an unfulfilled dream. It's not that the characters don't have depth, they do, but it's the almost comical exaggeration of character traits I've enjoyed so much in 30 Rock that carries this show as well.

But again, even if you weren't a great fan of 30 Rock, give this show a try. It's full of wit with a lot of social criticism between the lines. But what makes this show really fun is Kimmy's 90s humor and her naivety with which she approaches the world.

I've never felt so optimistic about a new sitcom since New Girl and it sure is one of the best new comedy shows in both 2014 and 2015 and after a whole lot of amazing drama series the first netflix comedy that is worth the watch.
