Easter hasn’t done me any good at all as i’ve been eating all the children’s chocolates. They don’t like chocolate all that much so it hangs around a bit and its there, calling me in the fridge. I cant help myself. We also have a lot of cake around this time of year as its birthday season again. A bit of cake is always nice with a cup of tea isn’t it…
Not only have I been forced to sit down and eat, i’ve also had to sit down and finish my latest knitting project. I had no choice. Of course, when you sit down and knit its nice to have the television on and being on of the Netflix StreamTeam means i’ve had the whole of Netflix at my disposal. Unfortunately for Netflix, i’ve been so busy watching loads of stuff, knitting and eating chocolate that I haven’t had time to blog about it.
All in all I blame my weight gain on Netflix, its their fault entirely for producing such a fantastic range of things to watch that I don’t feel the need to move from my sofa. I’ve binged on various things, but for me the absolute best programme has been Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It was so good I was literally STUCK to the sofa. It was a chore to stop viewing and make the dinner so the kids didn’t starve.
I think Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is most probably one of those love it or hate it programmes. I love it, i’m not a fan of American comedy but somehow Kimmy’s little faux pas and turns of phrase really struck a chord. Kimmy Schmidt is a bit like an American version of Miranda in terms of getting things a bit confused. The programme is basically about a girl who has been rescued from a cult making her way in New York. In essence, its an American sitcom created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock and starring Ellie Kemper.
If you like your comedy joyous, well written and delivered with spot on timing then this really is the programme for you. I must admit, I think its enhanced by the very likeable nature of the characters and their interesting wardrobes which visually deliver additional gifts. I genuinely found this laugh out loud and this doesn’t happen very often.
Kimmy Schmidt quotes are probably worth learning as you’ll see them popping up all over Facebook when you start looking. Here are a few:
“I’m not running a charity here, except the one where I donate my old towels to poor people with the same initials as me.”
“I’ll keep the crowd away like a Greenpeace volunteer.”
“My parents are blimping into town tomorrow.”
Enjoy this little trailer which gives you a flavour of the programme. It comes highly recommended by me, let me know what you think!
