- Every performance keeping true to their character
- Characters developed over the course of the series, coming from organic storylines
- Good balance between comedy and drama, especially in terms of social commentaries
- Energetic direction and writing
- Making every character a little ‘silly’ or ‘odd’, not just Kimmy
- Relevance of the social commentaries and topics being discussed, especially those discussing the internet and gentrification
- The relationship between Mike and Titus
- Every character having their own central storyline or ambitions
- Episodes were too long, and therefore often couldn’t keep the energy throughout
- An imbalance in tones, either too ‘silly’ or too ‘serious’, with definite distinctions
- Some individual episode storylines lacked and felt like fillers
- The character of Andrea was introduced too early and became unnecessary, simply showing up as a way to get Tina Fey another Emmy.
- Kimmy being developed too early, having several later episodes without much development.
