Phoebe’s Choice

As Netflix is wont to do, they dropped the full season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt last night at 3AM. Sadly, this truncated 6-episode season will be the final installation of this Tina Fey comedic masterpiece. I guess on the upside, we can probably expect another ridiculously clever and funny show from her soon. The last half season ended on an especially weird and ominous cliffhanger.

Things started with typical Kimmy oddity when she rediscovered the backpack she had stolen in the pilot, (with $70,000 in it also!). The bag soon manifested as a talking puppet: “Janice Sport.” The imaginary friend sparked her creative imagination, and together they wrote a young adult novel in one night. Juxtaposed against that, we found Titus was in a depressing bout of writer’s block on the eve of a big pitch he was about to make to a big-time producer, a show called “Greg Kinnear & The Capist.” Lillian was involved the associated nonsense that came with finally telling the family of her dead lover that he was dead. It happened months ago, so the timing in telling them led to additional awkward hilarity. Jacqueline spent the episode helping her stepdaughter, Xanthippe, deal with a pregnancy scare.

When she realized her bestest pal Titus was left without a good idea, she let him use her YA fiction as his pitch. This worked perfectly for Titus, who really only wanted to charm the producer for acting opportunities. That scheming worked perfectly, and Titus was invited to an audition. Kimmy meanwhile was dejected because her publicist had rejected the story she and Janice wrote because “nobody wants to read happy stories from the bunker girl.” She was so determined to leave her past behind that she took Janice to the East River, where she was filling her with rocks about to murder her, when she got a surprising phone call. It was the son of the producer that Titus pitched to. He had found her story and wanted to know more. This encouraged her to keep working on the tales with the backpack. Later back at the apartment, all the core crew were celebrating various successes when it started to pull out in the POV of a sniper watching them all through a scope. He was speaking in Arabic and referenced an assassin. WTF, Kimmy?!? What did you do???

Catch the second half of season four now on Netflix!

I’ll also be watching the latest three episodes of Young Justice that went live on DCU. That is a surprisingly fun show that airs on the exclusive DCU streaming service.
