A Decent Start!
11 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hear that 30 Rock is a pretty funny show with a solid cast. I knew that it had always been consistently nominated for awards, so I decided to check this show out. This first episode is not bad. I found it to be amusing and somewhat funny. I could have used more laughs, but some of the jokes are quite good.

We meet Liz for the first time working as an NBC producer for the show, "The Girlie Show." She meets her new boss Jack and he wants her to try to get a famous, if not somewhat crazy actor, Tracy to be on their show in order to draw in the 18-34 male demographic.

This show has a very talented cast. Tiny Fey is usually quite funny, even though she wasn't here. Alec Baldwin is the man and I loved his performance. Some people may find Tracy Morgan annoying, but he had some wicked one-liners in this pilot.

Overall, this is a decent beginning to the episode. I'm hearing the future episodes get better so I'm excited for the show. I rate this episode 8/10.
