From the executive producers of 30 Rock (Tina Fey and Robert Carlock) comes the "wise, wicked comedy" (Jeff Jensen, EW), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Rescued after fifteen years in an underground doomsday cult, Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) decides to rebuild her life in New York City armed with only a fifth-grade education and a firm belief that truly anything is possible. She quickly finds a roommate, Titus Andromedon (Primetime Emmy nominee Tituss Burgess), a job working for a spoiled Manhattan mom, Jacqueline Voorhees (Primetime Emmy nominee Jane Krakowski), and a new beginning. Watch season one of the Primetime Emmy-nominated series on these shiny discs that Kimmy is only now just learning about! That's all thirteen episodes, back-to-back and uninterrupted, of the show critics rave is "packed liked 30 Rock with surreal zingers" (Emily Nussbaum, The New Yorker).

Truly an excellent show though.
The main premise of the show seems contrived and the series would have been better off without it (four women were kept in an underground bunker by a doomsday charlatan cult leader). Ellie Kemper is a naturally charismatic actor and some of her dance moves in one episode made me laugh, but she is limited by this Cinderella written character.
Also, the theme song while catchy is based on a dated youtube/ news personality (whose 15 minutes are long up), and it seemed forced into the first show, when it could have been better utilized. Then it is used as the opening theme throughout the series and just comes across as perplexing wtf rather than an amusing callback. I think that the opening theme song vocals were even changed midway through the first season.
All in all, the show is sometimes amusing due to Ellie Kemper, but is nowhere in the same league as the (unheralded by the public) greatness of 30 Rock.
