Kimmy Decides Not to Febreze Her Troubles!


My favorite part of “Kimmy Goes to the Doctor!” was when it made fun of Febreze commercials.  We’ve all seen the commercials where blindfolded people sit in a disgusting room that they swear smells like a field of flowers.  But creators, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock are right; the people in those commercials aren’t solving the actual problem, they’re just covering it up.

Martin Short was absolutely perfect as the plastic surgeon, Dr. Franff.  He looked like a complete fool.  The make-up team worked their magic.  Dr. Franff’s cheeks were swelled up.  His face was stiff.  And his skin was almost shiny.  Dr. Franff mumbled through all his words.  You could barely tell what he was saying.  It was super entertaining.

I’m glad that Fey and Carlock incorporated the notorious musical, “Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark” into an episode of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!”  I love musical theater, but that is definitely something to make fun of.

“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” is basically a show that makes fun of everything.  It pokes fun at many aspects of our society and pop culture.  It’s easy to relate to.
