If you’re anything like us you’ve already binge-watched the entirety of the second season of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘ since its release on Friday. We’d like to take this moment to thank Netflix for keeping each series short so that we don’t completely waste away our lives stuck in the vortex of ‘play next episode’ and getting engrossed in fictional characters’ lives.
Anyway. The season was pretty amazing and, unsurprisingly, Kimmy was her usual weirdly wonderful self. We’ve got a lot of highlights we need to scream about, namely all that character development!
[beware: some spoilers below the cut]
Seeing our favourite trio back together was pretty much the best thing and it turns out Kimmy, Titus and Lillian have all had a lot going on.
At the beginning we see Kimmy struggling to accept that Dong is marrying someone else in order to stay in the country. However, after struggling with some intimacy issues — and taxi-ing around a drunk Tina Fey — she begins to realise she has some repressed anger issues towards the reverend after he kept her in a bunker for 15 years. She also had a brief fling with an army veteran and, ngl, we were pretty sad to see his run in the series so short-lived. That said, we’re obviously proud of Kimmy for facing her mental health head on.
This season also sees Titus tackle some of his own personal challenges with commitment and being afraid to let people in when Mikey, the heckling builder from Season 1, makes a reappearance in his life. Turns out Mikey is hella into Titus and we are hella into this ship. They’re so cute together and the scene where Mikey comes out to his family made us gigantic sobbing messes.
Lillian is most certainly our unsung hero across the series. Throughout Season 2 she’s fighting back against the modifications that are attempting to be made on her neighbourhood, whilst also juggling helping her friends and dishing out some sound, sometimes slightly crazy, advice.
All this and more amongst the usual hilarious one-liners, iconic musical numbers and copious guest stars. But that’s all you’re getting out of us.
Take a break, put your feet up and click onto Netflix. We don’t think you’ll regret it. And be sure to let us know your favourite parts @maximumpop!
