Mar 09, 2016Clever, hilarious comedy. A behind-the-scenes look at the the cast and crew of The Girly Show (TGS), an NBC skit-comedy program. Centres on the executive producer of the show, Liz Lemmon (played by Tina Fey), her boss, GE/NBC executive Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin). Created by Tina Fey, of SNL fame, 30 Rock is incredibly clever, especially in its references to topical events and in poking fun at the entertainment industry. Quite over-the-top at times, and delightfully so. The jokes come thick and fast, sometimes too fast - you've hardly digested one and the next one is upon you. If there is a negative, that is it - with the humour being so clever, you need some breathing space to sometimes get the jokes and being so snappy, you can easily miss things. Great performances and perfect casting. Alec Baldwin probably has the toughest gig, as his character is right-wing and capitalist to the extreme and is a living parody of not just the entertainment industry but business executives in general. Also, before this Baldwin was really considered only a drama-movie actor, so this is quite a change for him. He carries it off with aplomb. A classic and classy comedy series.
Jul 23, 2014Only becoming more daring, more original, and more creative with age, 30 Rock is tying all of its ends together in an unpredictable fashion that has me simultaneously laughing, and guessing, all the way up to its finish.
Nov 26, 2013Season 5 boasts biting satire, smart pop culture gags and a different direction as this show essentially spoofs the reality TV show in a highlight episode as well as using the Live show format with excellent results. In "Live Show", Liz is disappointed that no one remembers her 40th birthday, and as she attempts to get people to surprise her everybody else has their own problems that get in her way. The format here works perfectly with what 30 Rock is normally like! "Operation Righteous Cowboy Lightning" features more of Tracy and Angie's relationship, as Angie's reality camera crew follow the cast and crew around TGS all day. I loved TGS Hates Women, Cristin Milioti delivers the best guest star performance of the whole show as Abby Flynn, a female comedian who proves a hit with the male crew but finds tension with Liz and Jenna, this whole episode features many quotes, and Frank, Lutz and Toofer steal the show as much as Flynn does. Saving the best till last is Queen of Jordan, the reality style episode that takes all the elements such as soundtrack, camera style, interviews and quotes from the Real Housewives series and coats it in 30 Rock goodness! I loved the characters Defwan, Randy and Portia, and Susan Sarandon as you've never seen her before. I think this series stands tall just like the others, keep bringing more.
Nov 15, 2013One of 30 Rock's best seasons, 5 shows just how brilliant the show can be, combining a brilliant cast with razor sharp satire and immensely likeable characters. Highlights include: When it Rains, it Pours, Live Show, Reaganing, Operation Righteous Cowboy Lightning, Tom Hanks and Michael Keaton's appearences, Kelsey Grammer's appearence, Condolezza Rice's cameo.
