Must See TV

Are you watching 30 Rock? My favorite line from tonight's episode (delivered by Tracy Morgan) "I watched Boston Legal 9 times before I realized it wasn't a new Star Trek." Classic. I have a big deadline tomorrow and should be working on that project, but I just had to take a break to watch 30 Rock and then write a short bit about it. You can watch full episodes online. Which is what I usually do, because no matter how hard I try, I can't get the TV antenna to deliver perfect reception. Bert and I watch a fuzzy live version on Thursday night on our adequately-sized TV and then we watch the tiny, yet clear picture on our computer screen on Friday. What can I say? It's an imperfect world. But 30 Rock itself is near perfection.

LOL, gotta love the Shatner. He just keeps going. Maybe we should call him Shatner: The Energizer. Ok, no. We have never watched 30 Rock, but maybe it's time to start.

When I have a hardcore cleaning project I always take my laptop and catch up on the 30 Rock episodes. So funny. I haven't thought a show was that funny since Arrested Development.

dodge party--yes, it is high time you start.

mrs f--i'm so glad you said that about AD, because i almost wrote in my post that 30 Rock has cured my depression over the cancellation of Arrested Development a few years ago.

Sorry it is not a show I have seen. (30 Rock or Arrested Development)

Mary Poppins said...

One time I was working out on the treadmill to AD and I almost broke my legs I was laughing so hard. I would laugh so hard I would cry... all the time.

And 30 Rock teaches valuable lessons. Like why you shouldn't take any medications that have side effects including sleep crime, how to get out of jury duty "It's just not fair because I can read minds", and that the talents of that cast can continue to amaze and impress episode after episode. But Tracey Jordan made the ugliest white woman EVER! And I don't like it when Kenneth is corrupted. Oh yeah, we watch.
