Trivia

Tracy's storyline in this episode, in which the Republican nominee for vice president is a previously unknown, relatively inexperienced politician from a lightly populated, heavily conservative state beginning with the letter A--and he turns out to strongly resemble a cast member of TGS--is a direct parody of Tina Fey's experience while playing 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live.

Criss: Because you kept saying your Aunt Flo was in town.
Liz Lemon: She was. Remember? I took her to MOMA and the Cloisters?

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 07

Returning back for a better closure this almost half season, sweeps up each characters track with possibly the usual development but weaved in with sharp writing, that is not obliged to only draw in the chuckles bit engages on drama, debate and politics.

Governor Dunston

Neither gets to squeeze out the politics from Baldwin's track properly, nor is able to make Morgan's track childish as it was needed, what it gets right is the gag between Marsden and Fey and their sexual adventure.
