Kim Jong-Il should become a regular cast member, imo.

Was there a single episode this season that didn't have at least one "Kenneth Is Immortal" joke? They've never gone so all in with that in the past, have they?

She's doing a lot of movies so she probably isn't available?

i know realistically that was the case, but when they started talking their whole backstory it reminded me how they spent how many seasons developing this arc for it to fizzle out in two episodes? yeah i know, nobody watches 30 rock for the character development

also a similar thing happened to her character on Scrubs, which was almost as ridiculous

Nhex, Friday, 18 May 2012 13:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah but that was way more poorly conceived

does S&P just still not let people get abortions on prime-time comedies?

raw feel vegan (silby), Friday, 18 May 2012 18:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

No, but it's okay to let audiences know you can get a woman pregnant by premature ejaculating on her.

Leslie Mann: Boner Machine (C. Grisso/McCain), Friday, 18 May 2012 18:34 (2 years ago) Permalink

EBanks is not a huge start or anything but she's been averaging 4-5 movies a year since way before she did anything on 30 Rock, wasn't it always clear that her role on the show was going to be limited and sporadic with an end date? i mean who gives a fuck about plausibility on 30 Rock, the fact that they had her kidnapped by a foreign dictator to keep her out of most of the past season was better than any 'real' plotline could have been.

The ?uestlove joke was amazing, I think I lost about five minutes of the show to it

oh man was checking for this thread

i watched like the first 3 seasons of this show a week or so back, dug em, then watched like the first couple eps of season 4 and, iono, the jokes weren't hitting. it worth watching seasons 4-6?

fadanuf4erybody, Sunday, 30 September 2012 00:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

Season 4 is kind of a dip but I think it recovers quite well in next two seasons, even if it isn't up the standard of the earlier stuff. Lots of lolz to be had at any rate.

Legendary General Cypher Raige (Gukbe), Sunday, 30 September 2012 00:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

Seasons 2-3 definitely the peak for me, 4-5 not on par but still best sitcom on tv. Season 6 without a doubt kind of lame, by 30 Rock standards.

Claudia Schiffer Kills Frog (Leee), Sunday, 30 September 2012 00:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

If you ask fifteen 30 Rock fans this question, you will get at least fourteen different answers (e.g. I thought 6 was a vast improvement on 5).

i'm gonna take the old "lack of consensus about best/worst eras proves how consistent they've been" tack

some dude, Sunday, 30 September 2012 01:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

last year was def a comeback year imo

Clay, Sunday, 30 September 2012 02:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

I wouldn't say the show ever got anywhere near legit bad, but there were two very distinct dips when it was much less great. But the show bounced back both times.

Old Lunch, Sunday, 30 September 2012 02:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

i loved the show from the beginning but the only episodes that i really don't enjoy watching now are the first few, the rhythm was just not there yet

presumably when donald glover was busy with other projects, right

j., Sunday, 30 September 2012 03:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

last year bummed me out so bad, i actually stopped watching halfway through. it coincided with me being more busy anyway but i was really a fanatic before that and would always defend the show earlier when others said it was slipping.

la goonies (k3vin k.), Sunday, 30 September 2012 13:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

lucky you, when you realize how stupid it was to stop watching you'll have hilarious episodes like "Meet The Woggels" and "St. Patrick's Day" waiting for you

jaz a make wardance (some dude), Sunday, 30 September 2012 13:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

Last year was great. And the lows on this show are not very low, it's been super consistent for me. That Leap Day episode was probably my favorite from last season.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Sunday, 30 September 2012 14:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

man people here got so bent outta shape when anyone would interrupt the requoting of lines to say "eh this episode was just ok", but now everyone seems to at least aree every episode wasn't perfect

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Sunday, 30 September 2012 15:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

i disagree, it was perfect

It goes without saying.

i have a couple seasons of 30 rock to catch up on (i don't even know which ones--3+4?) but the episodes from last season i caught were very, very good.

Yes! Witch gag was great. Raging flying Jenna was likewise great.
