    Just watched this and curious to hear other people’s thoughts.

    Personally I wish it had just been a normal TV movie as I found all the false starts (I had about 6) really irritating and also meant that the ending felt really abrupt as I kind of lost a sense of where we were in the supposed arc. I especially say this because I actually found what I did watch really enjoyable and pretty hilarious. What is was though was a great showcase for the entire cast, especially Hamm, Radcliffe and Burgess who are all, delightfully, going to fill out my personal Emmys in that supporting category.

    I might try watching it again soon and only picking the options that I now know don’t lead nowhere so I get a clearer story.

    Movie Grade: B
    Movie MVP: Jon Hamm

    (PS: Wish one of the options had been to burn that bloody purple backpack)

    I wonder if they will submit any of the male actors in leading? I know Supporting Actor is pretty open, but I’m still not sure it could land more than one nomination in the same category.

    Did I choose “read” the baby instead of read to the baby knowing full well it was the wrong choice just because I wanted to see Tituss dragging the baby? Absolutely yes.

    I loved this way more than Bandersnatch! Definitely predicting Burgess for a nomination

    Though I saw Amy Sedaris in the credits and now I HAVE to go back and try to hunt down the path Mimi’s on because she is just TOO damn funny in this show.

    I haven’t watched since season 3, but I thought Amy Sedaris was always the worst character on the show. Her constant screaming annoyed the shit out of me.

    I believe this worked more than Bandersnatch cause the format really added to the comedy of the piece. With Bandersnatch I felt endless as things ended in misery. With this show and it’s wildness the comedic turns really worked.

    I went through it twice already and there were some really funny “ends”.

    It just occurred to me that the interactive categories are usually pretty barren so Kimmy Schmidt will likely soon be an Emmy-winning show regardless of how it does at the main ceremony

    When Kimmy is on hold calling Donna Maria, make sure to press 3 and Keep Listening. Two words: Taco Snake. And Kemper’s pained facial expressions all throughout a demented rendition of 12 Days of Christmas are everything. Emmy justice for Kemper!

    Other than that, yea, this should have been just a regular movie. I agree with forwardswill. The runaround with all the options was a bit irritating and really took me out of the quick comedy pace of the plot. And so by the time the ending came, i literally thought the story was not even at half point.. I was also expecting some Lost-style twist after Kimmy found the second bunker, but since it was just one standalone episode, i guess they needed a clean finite ending.

    Titus’ cover of “Free Bird” was bonkers, surreal and absolutely blissful. They should put it on iTunes.

    I have yet to watch it, but apparently, the movie isn’t available in certain countries due to difficulties of doing voice-over during the pandemic.

    Correct. I’m French and it’s isn’t avaliable because Netflix wants to protect the peoples who do the translation.
