30 rock was a satirical series that ran from 2006 to 2013, created by Tina Fey(SNL) who plays Liz Lemon, the show is originally inspired by her experiences working on Saturday Night Live. Notable actors include Tracy Morgan(Cop Out, SNL) who plays Tracy Jordan in the show; a crazed yet hilarious actor whose shenanigans could carry the show, Tracy Morgan recently made news after suffering a car crash. Alec Baldwin(Beetlejuice, SNL) who constantly makes the news, but not always in a good way, plays Jack Donaghy the VP of development and Liz Lemon’s boss. Jack is a conceited and powerful man in the series who constantly makes wild claims like God punishing him for having better looking hair. To be perfectly honest he’s actually my favorite character.
The show is centered around the crew making a fictitious show TGS(The Girly Show) a skit driven comedy, which would appear to be a parody of Saturday Night Live. The plot-line of any given episode is usually centered around averting a major catastrophe for a given episode or in some cases the future of the show itself; these take various forms such as actors having major meltdowns, or characters in the midst of existential dilemmas. The series is pretty easy going, where you can pick up at any given episode, and enjoy it without having to be well acquainted with the overarching plot-line established in earlier episodes. Normally this is where I would try to compare this show with another so you could have some sort of basis to judge whether you want to watch it, but much like the cheese I believe this one stands alone. While the problems that arise are meant to be life altering decisions that are not something normally taken lightly, the show never feels too serious.
I was pretty sad when this show ended, but it did have an excellent series finale. I would give it a 10/10
