New Netflix Obsession: 'The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'

I'll admit this hasn't been the most productive weekend ever but I discovered the wonderful new Neflix show 'The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'. Refreshing, quirky and laugh-out-loud, here are 5 reasons this show deserves a place in your heart.. 

1. It was created by the one and only Tina Fey. 

This woman is comedy genius and doesn't disappoint in this new project, you'll love it. Tina even makes an cameo appearance in the last two episodes.  

2.The storyline is weird but compelling.

Here's what you need to know: Kimmy Schmidt and three other women from a small American town called 'Durnsville' were kidnapped and trapped in an underground bunker for 15 years by a cult-crazy reverend. He convinced them that the world had been destroyed by the apocalypse. Weird, right? The first episode begins with the girls being freed by the police and the show is all about Kimmy's discovery of this new modern world. She doesn't know about new American slang, customs or even what an iPhone is. Her transition into 2015 life is hilarious and adorable - she learns to navigate herself in the world of careers, love and friendship.  

3. The cast are on point.

Bridesmaids' and The Office actress Ellie Kemper delivers a stellar performance as the main character Kimmy Schmidt. We also have a recurring character played by Ki Hong Lee (star of The Maze Runner), someone I'm predicting huge success for this year - get ready to fall a little bit in love with him. 

4. Kimmy Schmidt is the cutest thing ever. 

The last time Kimmy was in the real world was 2000 and it's safe to say a lot has changed. She decides to start a new life in New York but since her intelligence level is that of a 15-year-old's, she struggles to adapt. This is where her gay-best-friend-slash-roommmate Titus comes in. He's sassy, effortlessly funny and so quotable. 

5. It's the best way to spend a rainy weekend. 

The episodes are only 20 minutes long and there are only 13 in the first season. Luckily the season has been renewed by Neflix but it's unlcear when season 2 will be available. Me being me, I'm awfully impatient but would happily watch them all again. I probably missed things whilst I was laughing..
