February 21st, 2022 10:40 AM
Poll says fans aren't thrilled to Go Commando.

July 13th, 2020 1:00 PM

The third season of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt took a turn into the world of politics by incorporating random snarky political one-liners into almost all of the thirteen half-hour episodes.
