We Got This Covered
“The real you is full of crazy nonsense,” Kimmy tells a distraught, confused Gretchen at one point, trying to help her realize that the only cult leader she needs is herself. The great part of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is when it uses such enthusiastic, individualistic ideas as fist-pumping messages of personal empowerment, and the giddiest part is when it does so absolutely neck-deep in its own intrinsic strangeness. The show’s maniacal co-creators have crafted a series that’s rising head-and-shoulders above its peers, and there are a lot of great parts of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 2. But, at the same time, there is an ever-so-slightly lesser amount of giddily inventive ones.
