What TV show or movie have you watched recently? What is it about? How does watching it helps you in your everyday life?

These days I often feel sad and overwhelmed. Do you? I sometimes have doubts that I will live up to the challenges of the next months. I need to stop thinking and escape for a moment.
The best escape for Eli and me today is Netflix – this month we’re watching a series called Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Czech: Nezdolná Kimmy Schmidt). Kimmy is 29 and she has spent 15 years in a bunker and is now discovering the real America. Her roommate called Titus is black, unemployed, gay, and overweight.
