, and why
is the best show on TV right now

Can I just mention that this is my 6003rd comment?
This my 2067th comment
#3551 for me. Never saw 30 Rock. Perhaps my mind thought it was 3rd Rock from the Sun and didn't pay attention. Tina Fey, me likes.
3,936. Liz Lemon rules.

I made the same association, and dismissed it. I didn't realize Ms. Fey was at the helm! I'll have to check it out on DVD.
8106, ladies. I heart her.
Oh yes, Tina is great. And the chemistry with a comedic Baldwin is just excellent.
It's got an amazing cast. The ditzy blond, the naive intern, Tracy Morgan -- they're great. And Alec Baldwin is OUTSTANDING. It's up there with his Glengarry Glen Ross performance, only with something new every week. It's the only TV show that I'll plan an evening around if I'm at home on a Thursday nite.
3481. I've only seen the show once, but I try not to get "into" shows lest I start planning my time around them.
Not only are the major cast members amazing, but the minor ones too -- as we saw a couple weeks ago when Frank the writer was pushed to the forefront in deciding he was "gay for Jamie". It's all due to great writing. It's an incredibly tight script, not taking any breathers between jokes. You really have to pay attention to catch it all. Not to mention it churns out three or four great catchphrases every week that you find yourself adding to your lexicon to the puzzlement of the great majority who don't watch the show.
Help me Liz Lemon, you're my only hope! i super <3 Kenneth, tho, he is fantastic. if you're so inclined, you can get

from this link.... just went appliance shopping, and we would have made Jackie D proud with what we bought to support the parent co!
That is FUCKING AWESOME. Lemon out.
Kenneth: They obviously have some problem with my grandfather because they keep screaming Kill Whitey, and I'm like, Who do you think you are, alcohol? I love him.

That is a shockingly unreadable site, given that they're trying to sell stuff.
Everyone looks good in a Sheinhardt...

comments* Pfft! SMT is the only one who can approach me upright. The rest of you posers aren't worthy to stand in my presence.
*Oh, god, I gotta gedda life!
Uh... #265. Since August 02, 2004. Surely that's some kind of record? I mean, for someone who actively visits several times a week. I recently enqueued 30 Rock based on a friend's recommendation. He said he liked it better than "The Office." Slander, says I, but I'm intrigued enough to check it out.
Two different beasts altogether. The Ofice has its' moments, but it more like acrid, bitter humor.
And I actually prefer the english verison with Gervais.

ON YOUR KNEES, SWINE!!
5201. But that's only because I keep fucking off for weeks at a time when you all piss me off. I mean you, in particular. Yes. You, reading this now.
That's OK. C'mere, ya big lug!
of Tina at the Just For Laughs comedy festival mentioned in the piece.
HA! HW, you will NEVAR catch me! *runs fingers madly over the keyboard*
It's a filthy Christmas miracle!
There must be something wrong with me. I never could get into 30 Rock. Maybe I'll have to give it another chance. Also, I've been slacking. Only 4090 comments.
Quick, somebody piss kit off. I need to overtake his post count.
*slaps Lara in face with kid gloves* Have at you, Sir!
Hey, nobody pissed you off yet. Get back in your box!
Tina Fey, Tina Fey Outdoor fucking Starts today.
Alec Baldwin's 3rd best
piece of acting
Monologues from "Glenngary Glenross" and "Malice" being one and two
The thing about that scene that never fails to get me is the well-placed use of the phrase "pay me a nickel to bust up your chiffarobe," quite possibly my favorite phrase ever from American lit.
*applause* Now I'm definitely gonna get that show on DVD.
I love the word "chiffarobe", and have even worked it into a short story I'm writing, as an homage to one of my favourite books/movies.
The last taped episode is showing tonight. And, I'm ashamed to say, I totally missed
in December. Brilliant...
(Did I link that right? The joke about Liz' dad.)
I've now watched 2 of the 3 disks from the Sason 1 DVD set, and it's my new favourite show. Disk 3 starts tonight (along with the new episode, of course).
Apparently, Kenneth is introduced to coffee.
*waits for Kenneth to be introduced to ME*
What, you aren't gonna have
yeah, right, like *I* can compete with Frank.
And, I'm ashamed to say, I totally missed this joke in December. Brilliant...
Holy shit, I must have missed that episode. That's just the best thing ever.
I just watched the first three episodes on Netflixeses' streaming thing. Almost choked on my coffee at the "lemon party" line. You guys are right, this IS a great show!
THAT WAS FUCKING FANTASTIC.
I almost died with the line "I can't take any more of these German sitcoms!" I was eating a cookie, had to laugh, started choking, fighting to get the cookie out while still laughing...
I only managed to catch the last ten minutes or so. But it was good.

Why do brainy, smart women who are likely role models still
do the photo shoot?
Here's a lady that looks plenty fine in a business suit and glasses. So why do the pinup shot? Has Cosmo erased everyone's common sense?
OH MY YES.

. AND MY HEART IS GOING LIKE MAD YES I SAID YES SHE WILL YES.
Tina Fey is between a 'Rock' and a funny place at 'SNL'.
A nice little profile from --
I just read
What Tina Wants
Not too fast there, Capt...
where Tina's scar comes from
Not too fast there, Capt...
Oh, I saw it -- I was just keeping it for myself. As for the scar, that's terrible. Hopefully, now that we all know, people can leave well enough alone rather than keep pushing her for more details. Hopefully.
Yes, I purposely didn't mention the scar - because that seemed to be the impetus behind many other links to the Vanity Fair piece - and it didn't seem so important to me. Tina, on the otherhand, now there's the real story!
At that story is: Great Googly Moogly! Or, to use the more precise technical term: Ahh-WROOOO-gah!
