Trivia

Tina Fey wrote the character of Dr. Drew Baird with Jon Hamm in mind. She even referred to the character as "Jon Hamm" early on but did not think they would be able to get him to guest star on the series. Executive producer Lorne Michaels approached Hamm about "30 Rock" while he was hosting Saturday Night Live (1975), and Hamm, who was on hiatus from filming Mad Men (2007), agreed immediately.

30 Rock

With a sensational triumph of six Golden GLobes, 30 Rock is undeniably critics' choice and the buzz pays off with Fey; the creator, at the heart of it, whose vision is crystal clear and on the mark.

It is a single camera sitcom about a writer of a TV Show and the behind-the-camera chaos it goes through before it goes on air. The somewhat distorted concept isn't what the series relies upon, its ideal vacation is to reach for a mature audience with wise and not funny writing.

It is rich on technical aspects like the production design but fails completely on cinematography and background score. As mentioned earlier, the humor isn't forcibly imputed which allows the makers to visit unknown places without any restraints and communicate fluently with the viewers.

The soul of the series is certainly its huge cast who can easily charm their way out of anything but Baldwin and Fey does invest a lot in it and are flat out hilarious in it.

Layered, satirical and thought-provoking writing, ironical humor and injected with enough content to run for its twenty minutes are the high points of this brilliant sitcom. Few cameos and a knack of taking bold moves factors a lot on keeping the audience tangled in its exhilarating world.

Season 03

Unlike the second season, this one was more about the professional career and where it is leading towards for Fey, whilst surprisingly Baldwin's personal life is kept on spotlight here and driven emotionally through this prop and it manages to stick the landing with the quality maintained.

Generalissimo

The comparison between television show and reality keeps getting intriguing as it ages on screen and even though one can predict the trajectory, it still is exhilarating to encounter it when it hits on screen.
