Goofs

Cerie's claim that her mother was born in 1976 is highly unlikely to be right. In season one she mentioned that her mother was around 38, making her born in about 1968 and a 1976 birth would only make her around 11 or 12 when Cerie herself was born. See more »

Quotes

Liz Lemon: Was it down by the subway entrance because I saw a gangly looking kid down there?

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.

Secret Santa

The guest appearance by Moore is not only hilarious but sweet too, but with Fey and Baldwin's show stealing equation once again sweeps all the charm with a smart script that binds all the characters aptly.
