Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt "Kimmy Goes on a Playdate" Review - AVClub

AVClub: As Kimmy Schmidt’s world expands, so too does the world of the show, which adds a brand new player in “Kimmy Goes on a Playdate!”: Deirdre Robespierre, played by the delightful Anna Camp. Deirdre is the perfect addition to the show’s collection of heightened characters. It’s easy to poke fun at the up-tight trophy wives and supermoms of Manhattan’s private school system, but Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt doesn’t merely stick to jokes about google calendars and white wine. Deidre is both majestic and terrifying, and Camp brings a whole lot of magnetism to the character that it’s hard to imagine anyone else better suited for the role. Kimmy instantly falls under Deirdre’s spell from the moment she sees her and inhales her summery scent (“It’s actually pre-fall, but you’re sweet,” Deidre coos). Even Jacqueline—who once belonged to Deidre’s world but fell out when her ex-husband left her with a measly $12 million in the divorce settlement—can’t figure the ice queen out. “Oh Deidre, I can never figure out if you’re trying to help me or destroy me,” Jacqueline says through tense laughter. Deirdre’s response: “I honestly don’t know!”

The story is too old to be commented.
