Trivia

While Liz is talking to Aaron Sorkin about TV writing, he complains, "Our craft is dying while people are playing "Angry Birds" and poking each other on Facebook. What is poking anyway? Why won't anybody do it to me? I'm cool." Sorkin won a 2011 Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) Oscar for the script of The Social Network (2010), a movie about the founding of Facebook.com.

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 necessarily 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.

The equation between Fey and Baldwin is written with such meticulous and at times sweet and soothing tactics and cases that it goes through. Invading live shows, creating a mocked reality show and changing the perspective of the narrations are the bits that helps reset the clock from zero. It also keeps ironically jump in and out of character and storyline to draw in a chuckle every now and then.

Season 05

In this personal journey of the series' characters, each of them gets to dive in deeper on their personal relationships with their parents and partners and addition to that the equation between them too is evolved along with drawing out the attention from the background score and musicals and utilizing the frame thoroughly.

Plan B

The superness of the rivalry between Baldwin and Arnette is the funniest track of all whilst Fey's narration is much more gripping and husky, it definitely isn't that funny as the writers might think, although "bird internet" does work.
