Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Drives a Car!
April 30, 2016 1:01 PM - Season 2, Episode 6 - Subscribe

Titus tries airbnb so he can buy capes from the medical supply store. Jacqueline needs dental work. Lillian worries about gentrification.

There's a lot of hipster-punching, redeemed by the presence of Zosia Mamet.

I thought this was actually a pretty good take on gentrification. Lillian really does love her neighborhood as it is, and they make a pretty good case for how gentrification can make long-term residents feel like they no longer belong in their old neighborhoods.

What I really loved about this episode was Jacqueline almost learning a lesson, and in true style for her, missing it by a country mile.

Who knew Tina Fey was so obsessed with Mentos?

....Yeah, I couldn't think of much to say about this episode.

"My hair is a cape!"

(this is exactly how I used to feel about my long hair)

There's a lot about this show that bugs me, but essentially every episode has at least one or two moments where weird comedic genius comes shining through. I laughed until I thought I might hurt myself at "ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A MEMBER OF ARCADE FIRE?!"

Much like Portlandia, this show has moments of transcendent comedic brilliance, and much like Portlandia, this show has moments of cringeworthy out-of-touchness on the parts of the writers.

The Arcade Fire line was absolutely amazing, though. So was the line about looking like a baby.

What a frustratingly inconsistent show. Why can't it just get bad so I can stop feeling compelled to watch every episode? Why does it have to be incredibly brilliant at at least one point in most episodes?
