Notes About Things in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Season 1

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a Netflix Original TV series that is about a woman who is rescued from a doomsday cult. Kimmy is trying to make a new life. The show is goofy and weird.

Where did the Children Come From in “The Lobster”?

The Lobster is a bizarre dystopia where everyone must be part of a couple.  Those who become single are sent to The Hotel where they have 45 days to “fall in love” with a new partner (who, ideally, also falls in love with them.)  Those who do not manage to pair up with someone are turned into animals.

It’s a very dark and disturbing film, and you probably shouldn’t watch this one if you have recently had a romantic relationship come to an end.

Things I Learned from Watching Bar Rescue

Bar Rescue is a show that is on Spike TV. Jon Taffer is called to help out failing bars in the hopes that the bar can become successful again. After watching the first three seasons of the show, it seems to me that he is able to improve the finances of the majority of the bars he fixes.

I haven’t quite figured out exactly what all the “bar science” involves, but can confidently say that the show is entertaining. While I have no interest in opening a bar myself, I still was able to learn a lot about what not to do. There were certain big mistakes that several bar owners made that stand out.
