Surprisingly, there didn't seem to be a topic for this one.

Alec Baldwin is WIN, for what I have seen.

Isn't there a slanket somewhere you should be filling with your farts?

30 Rock is back, too. And I loved the last episode's story line, even before I realised 'Kable Town' is an expy for Comcast (Which has announced it is buying NBC). Seeing Jack being insecure is always lots of fun. Also: Hug plane coming in for a landing!

Oh, and Jack Welsh must have been the most pained 'celebrity' cameo in some time.

I don't usually watch many comedy shows, but I do love 30 Rock. My favorite characters are Kenneth and Jenna.

Yup. Agent Jayden out.
Shaun Mars, more like Shaun Dars, am I right?

I'm really digging the fact that they're getting mileage out of the Kabletown buys NBC storyline.

I loved their Porn for Women gag.tongue And as horribly stereotypical as the idea may be, I have a feeling I know enough people in Real Life who could make that an actual profitable venture.

We all know what Porn for Women really looks like,

I work for Kable Town, so I got a special personal satisfaction from that storyline.

Have any of you guys noticed the implications that Kenneth is not human, or is in some way supernatural?

We've seen evidence of Kenneth being a muppet and a vampire. Clearly, he's Count von Count.

A throwaway joke also mentioned that Kenneth has been "alive forever, " and in another episode he was affected by (seemingly) both an uncomfortable sound that could only be heard by people under twenty, and a similar sound that could only be heard by people over forty.

He also claimed to have had his pet bird for 80 years.

Jesus, that woman's pronounciation is mumbly. It took me several replays to figure out they were the cufflinks Reagan was buried with.

wild mass guess I think Kevin is dead. Tracy stated that he trained his dog to attack white people because ghosts are white. I bet the dog can sense supernatural beings, and that's why it went after Kevin so vehemently.

I really LOVE this show, but it is not as good now as it used to be in the early episodes, when it focused more in the "action behind the cameras", instead of the emphasis on personal relationships I see in the newer episodes

Has emotional range
Nah, I think the show has gotten better as it matured. It's focusing more on relationships precisely because it took the time to build them up, and many of them are very amusing. The last episode, I would call one of the best ever.

Meh, I don't hate human relationships unlike some other tropers, but I guess it's a matter of tastes: I don't like all that focus because it stole the attention from the show, the production and the actors; the premise that make me want to see the show in the first place.

Still, a good show...

I think I'm going to miss Wesley Snipes.

Yeah, he was fun, and new guy seems kind of bland.

Also, all the character are now in a happy relationship. I want this to last, but my inner Genre Savvy is telling me it won't.

We'll probably find something horrific about Matt Damon next season. And Jack's marriage is obviously doomed.

Thirding the missing of Wesley Snipes  *. Though, I think it would have kinda been strange if he and Liz actually got together.

Was it just me or was Kenneth in the finale at his most Kennethest? "Let's meet up later and smoke some drug cigarettes!" was probably my favorite line of the episode.

Anyone catch the premiere? I just watch it on Hulu, because I didn't realize it was on an hour later than before.

I thought it was good. Jenna being a producer and making Pete happy was quite funny (though, I think I will be forever disturbed about the bit with his wife).

Pete is just a lovely fountain of disturbingness. Remember the thumbtack?

Also: 'I will begin with the basics. You are hiking in the Japanese highlands. A pair of snow leopards is stalking you and the blade of your kitana is frosted into the scabbard...'

So, what did you guys think of the Live Episode? Were they able to pull it off?

I thought they did a pretty good job, overall. Though, it did feel very SNL-esque. Personally, I though the fake commercials were the best part. Tracy trying to break during his sketches was pretty ridiculous.
