A group of comedian events gathered in a third drama season of the series 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' where a surprise visitor handed over divorce papers to Kimmy. Jacqueline comes up with a plan to get Ross's father to rename the Indians. Kimi makes a splash at the Columbia University while odd jobs are being done to save up for the college. 'Titus' sings a controversial musical backup.
Three seasons in, Kemper's performance has become remarkably nuanced for such a slapsticky, cartoonish creation, and Kimmy Schmidt herself is starting to look like the indomitable figure that the title's "unbreakable" was always meant to signify.
Still, if you're a fan of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, as I am, you won't come out fully disappointed. The show still has its usual wacky appeal, dialed-up performances, and rapid-fire jokes that come and go so quickly that they all but require a rewatch.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt may be shifting away from its roots in Kimmy's specific repression... but the show is fighting even harder against the patriarchy as a whole. These women are flat-out exceptional, and not just the ones in front of the camera.
The show's writers never hesitate to acknowledge just how aware they are that they're essentially building a joke machine, while also telling a story that is more than a delivery system for punch lines.
