60 Favorite Television Characters: 32

Despite both being created by Tina Fey, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has a stronger undercurrent of sweetness and optimism to it than 30 Rock ever did. Which is not a knock on 30 Rock because cynicism fit what that show was, but it is a welcome change of pace I believe and I'm sure Fey would be quick to tell you the same. And that optimism essentially stems from that same nature present in the lead and titular character, Kimmy Schmidt. She's just so happy and bubbly all the time, which has to be a testament to Ellie Kemper.

  1. You hit on one of the things I love about the show, besides the humor. The optimism and positivity is a welcome change from just another cynical show.
