30 Rock ends tomorrow and that sucks. It’s been an awesome run of 137 episodes leading up to a 1 hour season finale tomorrow.
The show began back in 2006 and definitely took awhile to develop it’s groove. Once Jack decided to mentor Liz Lemon, the show was never funnier.
Probably what makes us love the show so much here at MWTVG is that a lot of the characters and actors come from Chicago’s Second City. I recently read Second City Alum Tina Fey’s Bossypants (yes I’m a guy, I don’t care what you think of me, she’s funny) and a lot of her personal life experiences are played out on the show. Best I can tell, it’s been a tough life so far.
Admittedly, what makes the show go is Alex Baldwin. It never feels like he is trying to be funny, but his timing is impeccable. Something about him, men want to be him, women want to be with and he confuses gay guys. Letting morality get in the way of making money, I might as well go be a teacher. Or yes my baby is a Canadian American baby, but I’m going to treat her like a normal human baby.
New sitcoms today have very little chance of making it. It’s a sad day when we lose a great one. Thank god for reruns.
