Trivia

Tracy offending the gay community with his stand-up act was based on a real controversy caused by Tracy Morgan, who went on a "homophobic rant" during a stand-up performance in Nashville in June 2011, between the fifth and sixth seasons. The jokes used in the fictional version were not as inflammatory or offensive as Morgan's real jokes in Nashville. See more »

Quotes

Jack Donaghy: Lemon, obviously I can't approve of someone I've never met.
Liz Lemon: Yeah well, I'm not letting you meet Criss because you won't approve of him.
Jack Donaghy: Well then I guess this is a Catch 22, although I don't know for sure because I refuse to read literature that questions the morality of war.

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 06

This season looses its grip for a brief period in its middle act only to life up to its standards just like the first act, by bringing out the big guns like mocking comic book movies, live shows and reality shows, that has always been its forte where it aces like no one.

Idiots Are People Two!

McBrayer and Krakowski has a sinister but often dull track to follow up to and whilst Morgan is a headache to Fey once again, the show stealer would be Baldwin's superpower of getting inside someone's head.
