to yell at the moon..

30 Rock

With a sensational triumph of six Golden GLobes, 30 Rock is undeniably critics' choice and the buzz pays off with Fey; the creator, at the heart of it, whose vision is crystal clear and on the mark.

It is a single camera sitcom about a writer of a TV Show and the behind-the-camera chaos it goes through before it goes on air. The somewhat distorted concept isn't what the series relies upon, its ideal vacation is to reach for a mature audience with wise and not funny writing.

It is rich on technical aspects like the production design but fails completely on cinematography and background score. As mentioned earlier, the humor isn't forcibly imputed which allows the makers to visit unknown places without any restraints and communicate fluently with the viewers.

The soul of the series is certainly its huge cast who can easily charm their way out of anything but Baldwin and Fey does invest a lot in it and are flat out hilarious in it.

Layered, satirical and thought-provoking writing, ironical humor and injected with enough content to run for its twenty minutes are the high points of this brilliant sitcom. Few cameos and a knack of taking bold moves factors a lot on keeping the audience tangled in its exhilarating flashy world.

Season 04

This season has a new theme involved which is that it cracks up jokes and notions that is actually meant to be off the story line, it is often referenced to the cast or the network or any hip controversy, in addition to that it also focuses a lot on the love track.

The Moms

It has an intriguing theme to fill in, but all of it is rotted out by the inessential gags of various moms depicted in order to draw the chuckle whilst the essential improvement gets lost into it.
