Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (96% Average Tomatometer)
Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) was in Grade 8 when she was kidnapped by Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm)for 15 years. The Reverend held Kimmy and 3 other women hostage in an underground bunker, and convinced them that doomsday had come, gone, and had left them the sole survivors of humanity.
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” made history at the 2018 Emmys for tying the shortest season ever nominated for Best Comedy Series at only six episodes.
Grace and Frankie (81% Average Tomatometer)
The show follows Grace, a retired mogul from the cosmetics industry and Frankie, an art-teacher-hippie, whose hubbies (Robert and Sol) are big-time divorce lawyers in San Diego. Grace and Frankie’s universes are rocked when Robert and Sol come out as being in love and plan to leave their wives. Never the best of friends, now forced to live together.
The show was met with mixed reviews when it debuted but turned things around later on receiving critical acclaim including four Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy.
