The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been a low-key favorite since it’s release. I’ll have to admit that I’ve only watched the pilot episode and never felt the urge to continue I can totally see why people love the show. Ellie Kemper is really all the proof you need to garner a watch but when you add in Jane Krakowski, Daniel Radcliffe and a cavalcade of characters guaranteed never to bore you I’m second-guessing my decision not to give it a further watch.
This new special takes advantage of Netflix’s innovative and barely used gimmick of interactivity. Black Mirror: Bandersnatch made good use of the tech but it didn’t really result in a slew of films using the technology. Honestly, this seems like a great way to re-introduce it. When you’re dealing with something new that could be the butt of jokes it’s probably best to bring your own jokes to the table. The trick is working though, even if I wasn’t interested in this show from the start the use of a choose your own adventure comedy is just too much to pass up.
