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.

I put together some notes about things that stuck in my mind after watching each episode.

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.

As I was watching, I noticed that there were many things in Mad Men that were very different from today.

Star Wars Part 3: Return Of The Script

I’m watching all of the Star Wars movies in a row, starting with Episode I. This is the third part in that series.

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was released in theaters in May of 2005. Unlike my experience with Episode II, I did see this one in the theater, mainly because I had heard good things about it and I knew it was likely to be (as I thought at the time) the last new Star Wars product to ever have a theatrical release.

The movie’s opening crawl tells us that the galaxy is caught in a state of war and that the separatists, led by Sith Lord Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and his second-in-command, the cybernetic death machine General Grievous, have captured Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and taken him hostage...
