Trivia

Several of the characters are filmed on a high-definition camera, with the running gag that the camera shows them as they really are. Liz is depicted as covered in moles and unsightly facial hair, Pete is a shirtless old man and Kenneth is a Muppet, but Jack is portrayed as youthful and handsome. The image of a younger Alec Baldwin is actually taken from his film The Hunt for Red October (1990); the dark suit high-definition Jack is wearing is actually a naval officer's uniform with the rank badges and insignia digitally removed. Jack's office is also decorated with various pictures and models of naval ships which may also be a subtle reference. See more »

Goofs

Having looked at the list of previous EGOT winners, Grizz, Dot Com and Kenneth conclude that they're all composers. In actuality only three (Marvin Hamlisch, Richard Rodgers, and Jonathan Tunick) are composers, while five are best known as actors (John Gielgud, Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Hayes, Audrey Hepburn and Rita Moreno) and two (Mel Brooks and Mike Nichols) are best known as directors.

Quotes

Liz Lemon: I'm not making this decision based on who's funnier or whom I like best, so Toofer, you're in charge.
Toofer: Thank you. In the words of Tennyson...
Liz Lemon: Sorry, you're not in charge.

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 flashy world.

Season 04

This season has a new theme involved which is that it cracks up jokes and notions that is actually meant to be off the story line, it is often referenced to the cast or the network or any hip controversy, in addition to that it also focuses a lot on the love track.

Dealbreakers Talk Show #0001

After a few bumpy episodes in this season, this is a sure shot home run where each track is flat out hilarious and each character gets a stand out moment with some of the best gags like "High Definition" camera.
