    I just finished up the season. It was quite funny, and Ellie does a great job in the title role. Lots of laugh out loud moments.

    Kimmy calling a hashtag hashbrown :D

    I kinda hated Tina Fey though, could have done without those stupid lawyers. Most of the court stuff was way less funny than Kimmy just living her new life at the apartment.

    I enjoyed the part with Kimmy's sister named Keemie

    Context is not important here. Just think about it a little bit.

    My memory isn't so great these days... What exactly was Kimmie on trial for again? I do remember them in trial...
    and I do remember the OJ dream team...

    Spoiler tag is probably appropriate since there are folks on this season-scoped thread that may not have gotten there yet...

    She wasn't on trial. Her kidnapper was.

    Ellie Kemper is the latest guest on The Comedy Insider podcast, hosted by The Onion creator Scott Dikkers. I haven't listened to it yet (I'm eager to) but I'm sure it has some interesting and entertaining moments, judging by previous episodes.

    Binge watched this over the last two weeks. The show was exactly what I thought it would be. Basically the Ellie Kemper character from the Office in the 30 Rock world.

    I was surprised that I really liked it. I don't think I'd make a point to watch this if it was on weekly, but it was pretty good.

    Thank you! Been trying to think of which show it reminded it me of for months. Very 30 Rock-ish.

    "On November 21, 2014, NBC sold Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to Netflix with a two-season order.[1] The second season commenced principal photography in August 2015, and is set to stream in spring 2016.[19]"


    Bahh! That's too long of a wait.

    So you're suggesting they do more than one season a year? ;)

    Works for me. And maybe we could get the brits to do it as well for their short but sweet seasons...

    S2E1 ("Kimmy Goes Roller Skating!"): I recognized that the scene on the train platform wasn't actually Penn Station, which meant I was distracted for the rest of the scene trying to figure out where it was. Fortunately, a sign giving that station's real name was visible in the background in one shot near the end of the scene.

    Atlantic Terminal, a Long Island Rail Road station in Brooklyn. (I've never been there, so I couldn't identify it.)

    I liked this s show in season 1. Now, I'm questioning myself. S2E1 was painfully bad.

    I thought season 1 started strong and went downhill as the season went on. But planning to watch season 2...at least a few episodes. :)

    I've watch 3 episodes so far and am not digging it. I loved the first season.
