Tv Season Info

The first season of this sitcom created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock follows an Indiana woman, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper), following her emergence from an underground bunker 15 years after the leader of a doomsday cult, Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm), convinces her and three other girls that the apocalypse has arrived. Fueled by her resilience and positive nature, Kimmy decides to take the $13,000 that she received from the "mole women" fund and travel to New York City in pursuit of a new beginning. After arriving in the city and having all of her money stolen, she finds a job as a nanny for a rich, eccentric Manhattan socialite, Jacqueline Voorhees (Jane Krakowski). Kimmy then befriends an unusual landlady, Lillian (Carol Kane), and becomes the roommate of an animated yet pessimistic aspiring Broadway singer, Titus Andromedon (Tituss Burgess), who works a series of odd-end jobs in hopes of eventually achieving his dreams. In the inaugural season, Kimmy learns to adapt to life in the 21st century, finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, and joins forces with her fellow mole women in an attempt to put Reverend Wayne Gary Wayne behind bars once and for all. Tina Fey, Martin Short and Jerry Minor make guest appearances.

Critic Reviews for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 1

Kemper is delightfully daffy in this modern Mary Tyler Moore role, oozing wonder as she discovers the marvels of the new millennium -- matching tattoos?

Mar 6, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

There never was any doubt that Ellie Kemper could anchor her own comedy series. She's all lightness, charm, vitality and teeth -- big bright ones that have a character all their own.

Mar 6, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

In case you couldn't tell, this is a comedy. And it's a good one, warm and charming, genuinely funny, and also odd enough to come from Tina Fey and writing partner Robert Carlock, late of 30 Rock.

Mar 5, 2015 | Full Review…

Despite the darkness of its premise, Schmidt's tone, like that of its heroine, is indomitably sunny.

Mar 5, 2015 | Full Review…

The execution of the high concept is rich with many excellent details, gags, and characters.

Mar 5, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a hilarious, sneaky-exhilarating ode to losing yourself in the big city - and just maybe finding your way in the process.

Mar 5, 2015 | Full Review…

A straight sitcom that has pure darkness lurking on all sides.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

[Ellie] Kemper is a fantastic physical comedian. Even a casual lean against a door that proves just a shade too far away - a move nearly as classic as a slip on a banana peel - is freshly hilarious, and surprisingly poignant

Apr 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Leave it to Tina Fey to turn a seriously disturbed storyline into a perfectly quotable laugh-out-loud comedy.

Sep 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is one of the best shows of 2015.

May 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Thankfully, almost every line in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a double entendre or clever, zeitgesty pun. The jokes come so fast, in fact, that if you laugh too hard at one, you'll miss the next.

Mar 7, 2017 | Full Review…

There's nothing generic about the funny (and charming) Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Audience Reviews for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 1

  • 2d ago
    Quirky and highly unbelievable yet hugely watchable, funny and very, very clever script writing. The dialogue is fast paced and every line is a classic. It requires you to give it poetic liscence and to just give in to its bright colourful sets, tongue in cheek, irony and irreverence!
  • Jan 18, 2021
    This show began with buckets loads of potential, and this first season really captures the excitement of that.
  • Dec 19, 2020
    Enjoyed season one. some great laugh out loud moments.
  • Sep 11, 2020
    One of my favorite sitcoms, writing is outstanding. My grade: A+
  • Sep 03, 2020
    This show is so wonderfully bizarre. I love the absurd humor and how it also works as a smart social commentary.
  • Jul 05, 2020
    The first couple of seasons were so fun and refreshing, after that it became predictable and lost the magic it had in the beginning
  • May 31, 2020
    I absolutely love the way this show presents trauma and growth with positivity and inclusivity.
  • May 30, 2020
    Give this quirky show a chance and watch every season.
  • May 18, 2020
    The first season had me laughing, but not all of the punches hit. It was a good first season for a show. It's obvious that the show is figuring out what it wants to be, which is NOT bad.

    Cringey and awful. Just a waste of time
