Why can't Christian Filmmakers Get It Right?

Stopped, paused and played The Song  a million times. I can't take it anymore. So, I am going to vent for a few.

From the poster, you could tell the bloody  plot. Just seeing the tattooed covered girl  standing behind the protagonist is enough to foretell that she will be portrayed as the snake whore who will lure the righteous man from his path and cause him to crash everything.

First, the 30 minutes per episode format isn't working for me. It's Neflix, dammit. I have come to expect greatness from its original series. A little bit of Googling showed that the series wasn't produced for Netflix in mind but NBC which accounts for all my issues.
The series tries too hard to be funny and sometimes it's hard to suppress disbelief that Kimmy is a woman who was kept in a bunker for 15 years, I think, secluded from the world. But then, American over the top humor always is lost on me. The comparison to 30 Rock is on the money. I also never found that show funny. So, if you loved or liked 30 Rock, you might find the first season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt hilarious, like its theme song which I love. Love love the cheekiness of th…
