30 Rock

The greatest TV in history is being made right now. The worst TV in history is being made right now.

30 Rock

Postby bastard_robo on Sat Oct 14, 2006 4:36 am

So i finally sat down and watched the "OTHER" fake SNL show on NBC.

I really liked the pilot. The show was funny as hell. It did have a couple of moment were it stated to lose me a bit, but over all, i really liked it.

Not to mention that it just builds my crush on TINA FEY even more.


DAMN YOU FOR TWISTING MY EMOTIONS WITH YOUR GEEKY BEAUTY TINA FEY!!!!

30 Rock's getting better with every episode, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite shows. Doesn't take itself the least bit seriously, and I love it. The latest episode cracked me up.

i loved Tracy Morgan's advice he gives to the gopher guy:

"Live every week of your life like it's Shark Week"

"Dress every day like those the clothes you gonna get murdered in"


and that blonde secretary girl . . . damn, she is hot. DAMN.
"Serves you right, Cartman, you're a sell-out!"
"I'M NOT A SELL-OUT! Wait- What's a sell-out?"

I have to say, I'm really falling for this show. I thought the pilot pretty much blew, but the show's been surprising me with some really genuine laughs.

Here's one exchange I love, where Liz comes to Tracy after pissing off her entire writing staff:

Liz: Tracy, we gotta do something...
Tracy: Let's crash my car and see if the airbags go off!

F-ing hysterical, I tells you.

I'm loving Baldwin in this show, it's a funny show but it's all about the Baldwin, I loved the bit when he just walked off all self conscious about what his arms should be doing.

If the show doesn't get picked up for a second season I can totally see Baldwin being asked to front his own show.

I hated the pilot but even Tracy has grown on me now to the point where he is my second favourite character behind Baldwin.

Tina Fey is very cute too.

I've seen the last few esipodes of this. I shied away from it a little bit when it first debuted, but it's actually pretty funny. Definitely holds its own with the other Thursday night sitcoms. Loved this little scene from Thursday night's ep where Tracy Morgan's batshit insane character fails the screening process for some Scientology-like club:

"I believe that the moon doesn't really exist. I believe that vampires are the best golfers in the world, but they'll never be able to prove it! I believe that there are 31 letters in the correct alphabet. What was the question again?"

Just when I think I really hate Tracy Morgan's character, he lectures a pigeon on eating out of the trash.

I heard him on the Adam Corolla show a few months ago before I had even watched a single episode. His enthusiasm for the show is what got me to watch it. Now it's my fave comedy on TV. Well, that and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I love that show.

Good to hear he's still enthused. After the debacle regarding the phone call to his daughter, he tried to get out of his contract with the show so that he could take care of his personal life.

Watched this last Thursday's episode tonight....The "Midnight Train to Georgia" sequence at the end was great. Man, I love this fucking show. Sooo funny.

Alec Baldwin is such the man. One of my favorite scenes is the one where Tracy sees the pshyciatrist in Donaghy's office and Donaghy imitates Tracy's mother and father (apparently Redd Foxx??). Also love the scene where the three Donaghy men are about to fight each other and they're using fist names. The way Baldwin delivers his lines in that scene is priceless..."Now I'm gonna let St. Andrew and St. Patrick DO MY TALKIN' FOR ME!!!!" Hilarious!


There are so many other classic moments in this show.


And yeah, I have a mild crush on Ms. Fey. She's certainly got that cute as hell geek factor going.

i fucking love 30 Rock.

everyone on the show, from Toofer to Frank and his hats to Cerie (oh, good lord, Cerie) is exceptional, spot-on performances from all involved...

but my favorite character is without a doubt Dr. Leo Spi-CHEM-in.

too many lines and notable sequences to even begin listing just one, but I LOL at least 3-4 times per ep, with many, many a chuckle or flat out guffaw for good measure.

I don't frequent coaxial too much, but I'm shocked that this show hasn't generated more discussion...

I know, I have to say I am too! It's usually on right before "The Office," and that thread's chugging along nicely (not now, obviously, but you know, when it's on an' shit). I don't really watch either on a regular basis, but this is a genuinely funny show that seems like it would have some geek appeal (also multi-camera and sans laff track, wink wink nudge nudge). I saw about 4 episodes from the first season, and loved each one. I should probably buy the thing on DVD.

While we're 'fessing up, I recently watched series one on DVD and I'm now catching up on season two - up to ep six. Although my main attraction to the show is best summed up by a willingness to watch Baldwin, Fey and Morgan pretty much do anything so long as involved the occasional snide, 'fey' cynical barking mad exchanges of banter, I think it's also the best comedy ensemble since Arrested Development, and cameos by the likes of Carrie Fischer and Will Arnett, Isabella Rossellini and Rip Torn have brightened up proceedings too.

yeah, there was one more ep, and it was one of the best.

as King C said, the "Midnight Train to Georgia" bit was a riot - Grizz and Dot Com as backup dancers to Tracy, Tracy's look of disgust when Jenna barges in, and then Kenneth's goofy, gleeful turn?

so much awesome.

best lines include Jack's "The founding fathers never intended for the poor to live into their forties" - Jack and C.C's exchange "“I’ve never been to a place before where they kill the pig in front of you.â€

Was this the season ender or just the last episode in the can before the strike? It was hysterical. I get the giggles every time I think about Lemon and the review board and the poor intern riding the snake of caffeine addiction. The Midnight Train to Georgia was fantastic.

I don't think I've laughed harder at a sitcom since Arrested Development, there are definitely a few elements that are similar, such as the hilarious offhand remarks delivered straight and just left there for the viewer to get, the episodes all have a fast moving plot (so far, 8 eps in) and there's frequent cut away jokes that also remind me of Spaced. And yeh Liz Lemon is hot, and holy lord so is the blonde secretary girl.

Baldwin is the shining centre though, and yeh he does and amazing job but the character is written so well too. What could have been a cliche venal studio exec ends up a anti-hero and also so... well I guess fatherly would be the word. And all the Jack Welch fellatio is too too funny. Tina Fey got a pretty subversive show in under the radar I think, much more subversive than Studio 60 anyway.

so kinda a disappointing new episode, at least by the ridiculously high bar 30 ROCK has set for itself.

Pete's hand caught in a vending machine...c'mon, SIMPSON'S did it, hell, even Sealab 2021 ran the gag to much greater comedic effect.

but the entire MILF ISLAND bit was fucking hysterical (I'd watch that), and, as usual, the show was stacked with killer one-liners and belly laugh generating non-sequitors...

"then I'll be in erection cove"

"She had too much champagne and a monkey pushed her into some quicksand. It could've happened anywhere."

"...eating bugs to get tampons"

"Shut your fried balony hole"

son of a married couple, now that's how you write a comedy episode!

adroitly weaving 3 plots, one special guest star (what's a Tim Conway?) and one recurring guest star (from Beeper King to Dateline Predator to Subway Hero, Dean Winters absolutely nails the sleazy yet endearing stereotypical Northeast U.S. scumbag who sometimes says but never does the right thing to an uncanny degree...who knew that Ryan O'Reily had those comedy chops in him? His off-hand delivery of "socially conservative, fiscally liberal" could not have been delivered any better), the only problem I had with the episode was laughing so hard over certain gags that I missed others, forcing me to go back and watch it again to pick up on all the comedy gold I missed the first time.

Sharply satirical without being heavy handed, the ratio of hits to misses was non-existent 'cuz every single line scored.

The Committee to Re-Invade Vietnam

"We're like Ross & Rachel, just not Dumbledore."

"Choosing is a sin, so I always write in the Lord's name!"
"That's Republican, we count those."

"I was here all night wandering the corridors. Didn't run into anybody except one giant lesbian...who is Conan O'Brien, and why is she so sad?"

"We used to call this the Jew room."

"Not thinking is what makes America great."

"If reality shows have taught us anything, it's that you can't keep people with no shame down."

and in the credits - Lord Stanley's Cup as Himself.

I still haven't gotten to Baldwin doing a riotous Nixon impression, Tracy's "Don't Vote" campaign ad and his delivery and rebellion against saying "Blackmericans", and, in possibly the best lines of an episode full of 'em, Dot Com's astute political analysis of the modern day Republican Party.

KCBC - Every word you typed above there is right on. That was an amazingly hilarious episode. Tim Conway was much funnier than I would have imagined (The Conan line had me in tears). The Dorf videos killed him in my mind.
Amazing stuff. I loved how the stories overlapped. Thursdays on NBC haven't been this good since the Cosby->Family Ties->Cheers->Night Court days.

hahaha! Yeah, I should've just transcribed the entire show.

Fievel wrote:Amazing stuff. I loved how the stories overlapped.


I know! Just by simply having Kenneth walking Conway through 30 Rock, brushing past the other actors while they were up to their own shenanigans?
That's as good as comedy writing gets, from the one-liners to the plotting.

"That's one mouthy sandwich girl."

I guess maybe the 30 Rock world is too insular and New York-ish and Jewish for mass consumption, 'cuz it's ratings suck...but it's got a 3rd season guarantee, so no matter what, we'll be getting more of it.

30 Rock is too clever for its own good. It needs to make a couple episodes during sweeps that just focuses on one outlandish plot in order to get the "According to Jim" crowd on board. Seinfeld probably would have been destined for obscurity if it wasn't for that "Master of my Domain" episode.

It is getting a TON of publicity lately -- Tina Fey has been on every magazine cover the past few weeks. People might start getting sucked in even if they don't entirely get it...

I don't know what it says about me that I identify with some Liz Lemon dilemma or other every week. This whole "freezing to death" love story was straight out of my own life. The guy in question was even a Western (not Midwest, dammit!) version of Dean.

Good thing I was already one of those girls who sleeps in her make-up and narrowly avoided the trap.

I don't know what it says about me that I identify with some Liz Lemon dilemma or other every week. This whole "freezing to death" love story was straight out of my own life. The guy in question was even a Western (not Midwest, dammit!) version of Dean.

Good thing I was already one of those girls who sleeps in her make-up and narrowly avoided the trap.

So, what your saying is that 2 weeks ago you were black mailed into writing some schlock, because your boss caught you in an inflammatory lie and you sold out a sweet dim witted fundy in the process?

Oh man I can't believe that this thread is receiving so little action. I love 30 Rock. It holds up against numerous viewings, has cute and crazy characters... and Tina Fay is great as Liz Lemon. Also Alec Baldwin has found a career high as Jack. Great stuff..... WATCH IT!!

It needs to make a couple episodes during sweeps that just focuses on one outlandish plot in order to get the "According to Jim" crowd on board. Seinfeld probably would have been destined for obscurity if it wasn't for that "Master of my Domain" episode.


Hope 30 Rock never does, and you're way off with regards to Seinfeld.

Conway fucking killed it, I especially like his queer reminiscing about McHale's Navy.

So, you didn't like the "Master of my Domain" episode? I thought it was hilarious. A lot of people at school did too. It seemed as though only my sister, I and her friends knew about Seinfeld back in the day. I can't pinpoint exactly when the show broke out, but I remember hearing "King of the county" "Lord of the manor" quotes being scattered all of a sudden. 30 Rock doesn't have to dumb down its writing to achieve this. It just needs that one super quotable episode that catches everyone's attention.

I finally saw my first episode of this show. Absolutely hilarious. I love Baldwin, and he delivers in this. Fey is good too. I don't like the subway hero guy too much. Even Tracy Morgan, who is annoying a lot, is damn funny here.

To me, this is like a more mature, live action version of Family Guy. That quick cut to Fey freezing to death after she'd made that analogy earlier comparing it to her love life had me rolling.

I'll watch again. What's the regular time slot? Thursdays... when?
