I missed watching this earlier in the season, so I started
downloading it from iTunes. I have been enjoying them and laughing out
loud at every episode!! They are hilarious. Finally, a funny sitcom on TV
"30 Rock" is about a look behind-the-scenes at a live skit
comedy show, somewhat like "Saturday Night Live", called "The Girl Show".
The head writer is Liz, played by Tina Fey (of SNL) and the lead actress is
ditzy Jenna (played by Ally McBeal's Jane Krakowski). The show's producer
is replaced by loony Jack, played with great gusto by Alec Baldwin. He brings in
Tracy Jordan, a movie actor/comedian who is literally crazy, played by SNL's
Tracy Morgan. There are plenty of fun tv/movie jokes, as well as jokes
about the characters and their lives. It is not something that's easy to
describe, but trust me, it's just very very funny.
The show is basically a farce, like any good sitcom. It's
not to be taken seriously. I have read many comparisons to the other NBC show, "Studio
60 on the Sunset Strip", which is also about behind-the-scenes of a live SNL-type
show. However, besides their both having numbers in their names, that's
where the similarities end.
I like both shows, but "30 Rock" is much funnier. It's a sitcom.
"Studio 60" is an hour long, and it's more what I'd call a soft or light drama.
It has many funny moments, but it's not farcical. The people are meant to
be more real. Both shows are good and have their own merits, but if you
are looked for straight-out laughs, watch 30 Rock. If you are looking for
both witty dialogue and entertaining drama, watch Studio 60. But you
really don't have to choose - watch both!
30 Rock airs Thursdays at 9:30 pm.
