Can someone please explain the appeal of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to me? Everyone (that I generally hold in high regards comedy-show wise) seems to love the show but I just....can’t.

I loved 30 Rock but I just can’t see the appeal of Kimmy Schmidt with its over-the-top characters and not-so-subtle humor...

Am I cynical now?
