Critic Reviews for 30 Rock Season 7

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

All great things must come to an end, and 6 1/2 seasons seems like a reasonable life span for this great thing -- packed with wordplay, sight gags, pop-culture tangents and assorted other odds and ends.

Liz Lemon was flawed and complex, but she was also witty and smart and no-nonsense, especially when it came to herself. We relate to her because she made our most basic and common flaws hilarious to watch every week.

No show before 30 Rock commented as astutely on television culture as it mocked NBC and terrible TV trends ("MILF Island," anyone?). For that alone, 30 Rock deserves the thanks of a grateful nation.

I suspect that much of this season will be about Lemon and Jack trying to tank the network, and that promises to be a comedy goldmine.

Live From Studio 6H was one of if not the funniest episode of the season, and the concept was also on point.

Most long-running sitcoms fade away, but Liz Lemon didn't run out of juice.

It was one of the most satisfying sitcom enders I've seen, right up there with the end of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Cheers, series that operated along the same no-fuss, let's-all-have-a-good-time wavelength.

Through seven seasons, loving "30 Rock" always seemed like evidence that one's brain and heart were connected perfectly.

What I'll miss most when 30 Rock is gone is the conduit it provided into whatever was on Fey's mind. As 30 Rock found its way and sharpened its blade, Fey became the unofficial spokeswoman for a niche demographic.

Anyone returning, hoping for the old Rock rather than the new, is bound to be disappointed in this strained outing.
