A fabulous coda worthy of the whimsical heroine.

Even going down blind alleys is a hoot with special guest stars waiting in the wings to ridicule your choices and steer you back on the proper path.

To complain that parts of this special don't make sense might seem beside the point... but when timelines don't match up or potentially powerful moments are quickly disposed of, it undermines any substantial impact the special might otherwise carry.

May 13, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Its combination of an artificially positive sitcom world and the suggestion of a creepy and all-too-real world hovering at its edges gives "Kimmy vs. the Reverend" a knowing, postmodern feeling.

May 12, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's fun to explore both rationales and after going down enough dead ends, you realise that basing your choices on Kimmy's inherent goodness is the way to go.

What has always been true about Kimmy Schmidt remains true here: both she, and the series/interactive special she inspired, have sensibilities and minds very much of their own.

May 12, 2020 | Full Review…

This novel, choose-as-you-go Kimmy Schmidt special is fun, but it also makes for some pressure, especially for hardcore fans who know that Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) doesn't always make the best choices on her own.

Speaking of weird bliss, fans of the sweetly insane Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt should check out the stand-alone, interactive movie Kimmy vs. the Reverend...

May 29, 2020 | Full Review…

The sharp wit and blink-and-you'll-miss-it-humour that makes Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so distinguishable is here in abundance.

May 22, 2020 | Full Review…

If season four provided a competent, albeit not hugely memorable, ending to this series, Kimmy vs The Reverend is a rousing victory lap that sends it off in style.

May 11, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend doesn't just use the interactive tools to their benefit; they seem to push the limits of what the format can creatively do.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Vs. The Reverend is silly, lovable fun just like the rest of the series, yet presented in such an enjoyable, unique manner.
