Sorry about the delay, we’ve been on vacation!
We decided to re-watch the series lately, it’s up there with my top 5 comedy series (In no order – The Office, How I Met Your Mother, 30 Rock, South Park, and Arrested Development — Honorable Mentions – Parks and Rec, Simpsons, Friends, Scrubs, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and Flight of the Concords — okay so maybe the list is longer than I thought).
This is a fictional show about fictional characters (though they feel oddly adjacent to some real life celebs in the entertainment industry) who work on a late-night sitcom. Produced by Lorne Michaels of SNL cred, this is right up your alley if you are a fan of his other work.
The girlfriend and I finished the first season in a week. The episodes are so short and hilarity so constant that it’s easy to just rip through a number of them in one sitting. There is a reason this show won Emmy’s and was on for so long, and I don’t know if there is anything I can say about it that hasn’t been said before; this is a fantastic show. The characters are off-the-wall and the situations are ridiculous, yet everything feels relatable in a weirdly comforting way. If you don’t enjoy it after the first few episodes, turn it off, because the comedy style won’t change. Then go see your doctor and ask them to locate your funny bone because I don’t think you have one..
30 Rock – 9/10 available to stream in all of its hilarity on Hulu.
