The beginning of 30 Rock
4 September 2010 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The pilot was very weak compare to the other episode in season 1. It was misplaced, in constructed and poor writing/directing. The cast save the pilot. I almost off my TV and regret buying the first season of this show, but Thank God the rest of the episodes were hilarious and totally different from the pilot.

The cast: Tracy Jordan who plays Tracy Morgan was very annoying in the pilot, if you compare with the rest of the episodes which he is bearable and have a heart (or maybe we are just getting used at him?). Tina Fey plays Liz Lemon perfectly, but even her character has the 'dim' part, surprisingly only Alec Baldwin's character stays true and unchanged through out the season since the pilot. And I need to mention the amazing Jane Krakowski, she is entertaining to watch at. The other supporting cast were good, but nothing great.
