Tina Fey’s new Netflix comedy The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is here – and it’s fantastic. Originally created by Fey and Robert Carlock for NBC, the show follows Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) who moves to New York to start her life over after escaping from a doomsday cult.

“Right there in the title, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt tells you its central character is stronger than what's been done to her, and she will survive it. Plus, it's funny” said Liz Shannon Miller of Indiewire. 

“It's at once a twisted parody of every "plucky single gal in the big city" story ever told, and an often hilarious version of the real thing” said Alan Seppinwall of HitFix.com.

“On its own, the show’s concept might have just been a throwaway 30 Rock subplot; what sustains it is how it applies the concept of unbreakability beyond Kimmy. Each character is a survivor”, wrote James Poniewozik of Time magazine.

“The good news is that Kimmy is already really good; in the first six episodes, each one gets better as it goes (though the pilot is particularly strong)” said Tim Goodman of the Hollywood Reporter.

The show started out as ‘Tooken’, with NBC placing a 13 episode straight-to-series order. However, in November 2014, NBC announced it had sold the show to Netflix. Given the strong reviews, that decision is looking more questionable by the day.

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt co-stars Tituss Burgess, Carol Lane and Jane Krakowski. It premieres on Netflix today (March 6) and you can watch every god damn episode right now.
