Dealing with hard issues using humour, with focus on Netflix Original, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Tina Fey explores a survivor’s journey after escaping years of abuse with lightness and humour. Moreover, the show also makes reference to issues of cultural appropriation (or misappropriation), political-correctness, and other contemporary social issues.
What I like about this show is how it has an almost satirical approach to the topics you've mentioned, and so, it's not 'mindless' humour. Additionally, I think Kimmy is very relatable. There are so many traits to explore that make her an excellent character such as her modesty, genuineness and undefeated optimism. Try giving that a shot too! – Suman7 years ago
I think in particular the issues with PTSD in the second season would be a notable example of Kimmy's endurance – Darcy Griffin7 years ago
It took me a moment to appreciate this show, but as it progressed, I enjoyed the way in which difficult subjects were tackled in a comical manner without mocking the seriousness of the issues covered. – danielle5776 years ago
A look into the Netflix original "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" to analyze how the show acknowledges and satirizes media culture and the effect that it has for the audience when the main character is by all accounts, technologically inept (especially in relation to going viral, social media, etc). Can also discuss transition from first to second season and shifts in storytelling.
