6 Reasons to Get Excited About Season 3 of 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"

Back in 2014 the Netflix original series "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" debuted and was instantly a comedy sensation. Starring Ellie Kemper ("The Office" and "Bridesmaids") alongside Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski, and Carol Kane, the show follows Kemper's character, Kimmy, as she learns about the world around her. Why would she have to learn you ask? Well she was held captive by a crazy "Reverend" (Jon Hamm) in a bunker for years, so all of her knowledge about the world is at a fourteen year-old's level. Mix this in with a few other outlandish situations and you've got yourself plenty of laughs. In honor of the third season premiere on May 19, here are a few reasons to get excited for the return of Kimmy and her friends.

1. Kimmy's unique vocabulary.

But maybe not knowing what hashtag means is a good thing? Well either way, this example of peculiar word choice is part of this red head's charm.

2. The show's ability to point out flaws with society.

The lack of care for the environment is also a clear dig at the 1%, who have no worry of obtaining clean water.

3. The way that Kimmy owns up to her strange ways.

Unfortunately for her, she doesn't seem to realize that everyone around her is weird in their own way, but the fact that she can admit that she's weird puts her a step above her peers.

4. Because Titus speaks French.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F24%2F636285913789360739331639950_6362859137821178571660479521_kimmy%25204.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=228&h=8bafbcdd126bb063b386e5664a4361243d5d4060db9e1e465406f77613272a14&size=980x&c=1544689337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F24%252F636285913789360739331639950_6362859137821178571660479521_kimmy%2525204.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D228%26h%3D8bafbcdd126bb063b386e5664a4361243d5d4060db9e1e465406f77613272a14%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1544689337%22%7D" expand=1]If you can take, "bye, Felicia," to a whole other level, then you earn some trust solely on your ability to be creative. In Titus' case, creativity flows at all moments of the day, especially when it involves Barbie dolls or pinot noir.

5. The masterpiece that is "Peeno Noir".

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F24%2F636285917292733481899304971_6362859172852340101677841252_kimmy%25205.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=506&h=5496dc2984c01d019be406249ab64bc8f515be2d9f1b65d58b10553e142dd4d1&size=980x&c=317006575 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F24%252F636285917292733481899304971_6362859172852340101677841252_kimmy%2525205.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D506%26h%3D5496dc2984c01d019be406249ab64bc8f515be2d9f1b65d58b10553e142dd4d1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D317006575%22%7D" expand=1]

Titus' infamous song may have been a part of the first season, but there have been plenty of goodies like this sprinkled throughout the series. From musical numbers to cartoon segments, this show never fails to entertain.

6. If Kimmy can adapt than so can we.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
