‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ Is Un-PC and Loving It
If you don’t know the drill by now, you should. Kimmy Schmidt (played by Ellie Kemper) was kidnapped at age 14 by a crazy reverend who said he thought the world was ending. One of the Indiana “mole women,” Kimmy lived in a bunker for 15 years before she was rescued. Emerging into the sunshine, Kimmy is ready to take on a whole new world: a totally normal life.
Netflix’s charming “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” debuted with its first season around this time last year, so fans have been anxiously awaiting season 2. Helmed by Tina Fey (and covered with telltale Fey fingerprints), “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is funny, feminist—and very pro-free speech in a censorious world.
