Post-binge watching: My favorite quotes from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s season 2 (#KimmySchmidt)

with one comment

Netflix sitcom "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"Season 2 of „Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt“, the hilarious sitcom created by Tina Fey and her „30 Rock“ show runner Robert Carlock, is at least as strong as its premiere season. I especially enjoyed the addition of Tina Fey’s role as Andrea Bayden, „an alcoholic therapist who is separated by work Andrea at day and drunk Andrea at night“ (Wikipedia). On RottenTomatoes.com, the series still has the same approval rate by critics as in season 1: 95 %. In short: „Not letting up in season two, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is still odd in the best of ways, wonderfully building on its unique comedy stylings and brilliantly funny cast.“

Here is a selection of my favorite quotes:

Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper): I did it for your own good, Xan. Someday you’ll thank me.
Xanthippe Voorhees: Yeah, when pigs fly. – Oh, my God. I sound so lame now! And stupid.
Kimmy: Pigs fly all the time, Xan, or did you think prize pigs walk to international pig competitions?

Kimmy Schmidt: What do I call you now? Mrs. Voorhers?
Jacqueline White (Jane Krakowski): Ms. White. That’s my Sioux family name. It was given to us in the 1920s by a sarcastic census taker.

Jacqueline White: Kimmy, I need your help.
Kimmy Schmidt: Help? That’s what we elves are born to do.
Jacqueline: Oh, you are dressed like an elf. I just assumed it was the trucker pills.

Jacqueline White: Oh, Kimmy, I also need you to call my hotel. My suite is so big, I keep getting lost. Have them send up a guide monkey.

Deirdre Robespierre (Anna Camp, to Jacqueline): I have a 150 IQ, but I spent all morning picking out dog stationery. Maybe I’m just tormenting you just to feel alive, but also there is a chance this is real empathy.

Johnny Depp stars in hilarious Donald Trump parody (free movie)

with one comment

The Art of the DealFor those who (like me) missed it before: Check out the brilliant 50-minute Donald Trump parody „The Art of the Deal“ featuring Johnny Depp and guest stars like Ron Howard, Patton Oswalt, Henry Winkler, Alfred Molina, Christopher Lloyd, Stephen Merchant, Tim Robbins, Jack McBrayer and ALF („Donald stole my hair.“). The theme song is performed by Kenny Loggins, in nostalgic ’80s style.

The New York Post comments:

Doing a hilarious Donald Trump impression, Depp scores more laughs in his secret new online video, “Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie,” than in his last several comedies.

R.I.P., Rik Mayall! (Remembering The New Statesman)

leave a comment »

Sad news: British comedian Rik Mayall died this morning at the age of 56. I never got into his co-creation „The Young Ones“ but his wickedly funny performance in „The New Statesman“ turned this brilliant political satire into one of my favourite series of the late ’80s/early ’90s. Here is the first episode:
