30 Rock: Season 5, Episode 22: Everything Sunny All the Time Always - TV...

Published by

30 Rock - Everything Sunny All the Time Always - Margaret Cho, Tracy Morgan
This week's episode of "30 Rock" brings in two very special guests from the world of politics. Ok, to be fair, one of those "guests" is merely an actor impersonating a famed political figure, but the performance is so frighteningly spot-on that we'd be safe in pretending that it was the real thing. Sadly, the other guest didn't quite deliver the goods, but that doesn't ruin...

30 Rock: Season 5 Episode 19: I Heart Connecticut - TV Review

Published by

30 Rock - I Heart Connecticut - Jane Krakowski
"30 Rock" is so attractive to fans of comedy because the writing is extremely sharp, reminding viewers that what goes on behind the camera is just as important as what goes on in front of it. Luckily, this week, both elements were pretty strong, and while there were a few missteps along the way, it generally made for a good half hour of entertainment.

30 Rock - It's never Too Late for Now - Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin
Well, fans of excellent television might have a reason or two to lament 2012 (aside from it being the end of the world, according to all the billboards I’ve been seeing lately)—according to Alec Baldwin, the next season of 30 Rock will be (brace yourselves) the last!

Tina Fey Hits Back At Sarah Palin In Her New Book, 'Bossypants'

Tiny Fey covers a lot of ground in her new book, Bossypants ("Why is this book called Bossypants? One, because the name Two and a Half Men was already taken”), from discussing sexism and ageism in Hollywood, to her hit TV show 30 Rock, to getting advice from Oprah Winfrey.  But the most interesting sections seem to deal...

30 Rock: Season 5 Episode 18: Plan B - TV Review

30 Rock - Plan B - Tina Fey
"30 Rock" is the best kind of sitcom: one that lets us know that the writers are just as important as the actors. As we slowly (and thankfully) say goodbye to laugh tracks on our TV shows, it's up to the writing staff to deliver comedy that is actually funny. Last night's episode was another one that harped on this fact, but dammit, it's difficult to harp on it enough.

30 Rock - It's Never Too Late for Now - Tina Fey
Well it looks like Matt Damon is officially out of the picture on "30 Rock." It's a shame, since he did a great job in the role he was given, but we all knew that this day was coming. This week's episode lets us mourn the loss vicariously through Liz, who takes yet another romantic failure rather harshly.

"30 Rock" may not be as consistently entertaining as "Arrested Development" was, but it fills the gap that show left by providing viewers with a source of strong comedic writing. While this season has been somewhat uneven, last night's episode was a well-rounded example of high-quality humor that did what it is meant to do: keep us interested for half an...

30 Rock: Season 5 Episode 13: Que Sorpresa! - TV Review

Published by

30 Rock - Que Sorpresa! - Tina Fey
"30 Rock" hasn't been as consistently entertaining this season as it has in the past, and most of the episodes feel unbalanced. Some jokes are fantastic, others are predictable, and others are just simply not funny. It's still good comedy television, but "30 Rock" is usually great comedy television, and it hasn't lived up to its previous four seasons thus far. Sadly,...

30 Rock: Season 5 Episode 8: College - TV Review

30 Rock - College - Jack McBrayer and Alec Baldwin
The recently missing in action "TGS" writing staff is back this week on "30 Rock," and they provide the laughs you've come to expect. A little role reversal occurs as well when Liz feels accepted for once and Jack finally questions his importance at GE. Also, the episode ends with Pete wearing a Mexican poncho and playing Jethro Tull's Aqualung on acoustic guitar. The...

30 Rock: Season 5 Episode 7: Brooklyn Without Limits - TV Review

Published by

30 Rock - Brooklyn Without Limits - John Slattery and Alec Baldwin
"30 Rock" is successful because it mixes clever writing with a larger than life portrayal of our own society. A lot of the time, it's funny because it is is frighteningly familiar to us. Last night's was an episode that showcased this particular quality, with a political candidate who is only slightly nuttier than some of the ones we've seen lately and a subplot involving Tracy...

30 Rock - Gentleman's Intermission - Buck Henry and Tina Fey
The beautiful Elizabeth Banks is back this week, and even if her role is minimal, there were plenty of reasons to watch last night's episode of "30 Rock." This has always been a  show that relies just as much on its good writing as it does its stars - both of which did a phenomenal job this week at bringing the two together and keeping the laughs coming.  Check out the review...

"30 Rock" is the brainchild of Tina Fey, who made her name as a writer and performer on "Saturday Night Live." She returns to her roots with this week's episode, which was aired completely live (hence the title "Live Show"). Although, in theory, this sounds like a gimmick to pique viewers' curiosity, fans were treated to an impressive, funny half hour that...

"30 Rock" is at its best when it is less focused on Liz or Jack's relationship struggles and more focused on making audiences laugh. Last night was a great example of this, with funny guest stars and a consistently clever script. Read the review and find out why the show needs to keep heading in this direction...
