Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a Netflix comedy series from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, who previously collaborated on 30 Rock. As the story goes, the main character and three other women are rescued from an underground bunker after 15 years as captives of a cult leader who told them that the world had ended. It's a serious issue (and unapologetically reminiscent of some real-life kidnapping stories) but also serves as a lead-in for many jokes about Kimmy's naïveté and relative unworldliness as she bravely negotiates current-day New York City with nothing but a purple JanSport backpack to her name. There's some language ("bitch" and "damn"; and "f--k" is edited) and sexual content (mostly conversational, referring to fetishes, orgies, and slang such as "MILF") to watch for if your teens want to tune in, but there's also a very strong cast of women who show depth of character, self-reliance, and a lot of heart.

Sexual Content

References to sexual fetishes (a man says he has sex with the costumes in his store, for instance), orgies, sluts, and MILFs. Teens discuss having sex with older men.


Not applicable


"Bitch," "jackass," "hell," "dammit," and "damn." "F--k" is edited. Kimmy uses sound-alike words such as "fudgin'."

Social Behavior

Kimmy's experiences suggest that positivity and determination can triumph over any adversity, but the show takes a lighthearted tone with serious issues such as abduction and victimization to push its comedy. Racial comedy and some stereotyping.


Cultural references to '90s TV, music, and products include American Girl dolls, Moesha, and Michael Jackson.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults drink socially and at bars. In at least one scene, underage drinking leads one teen to get drunk and sick.
