Sorry for the lack of posts. I was down in Chicago attending the nuptials of our pal Frank. It was lovely affair - great people, great food, lots of drinking. It was especially nice to have a girlfriend to take. The newlyweds are probably losing money in Las Vegas as I type this.
I was on a flight not that long ago that offered free in-flight entertainment. It was the first time I saw an episode of "30 Rock". I liked it, although I was a little lost when it came to the various character histories. I'm one of those types that has to get in on the ground floor with a new series. If not, I either try to get caught up somehow, or I just wait for the whole thing to come out on DVD. Thanks to the new deal from Netflix, I've been able to work my way through the entire first season at my convenience. What I've learned is that "30 Rock" is an excellent comedy. It is a series I will make a point to watch from now on. I've been able to catch some of the second season (you can watch full episodes free at NBC.com). It hasn't disappointed.
This show has a great mix of hilarious smaller characters and a solid foundation of Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. Tina Fey is cute as a button and Baldwin is perfect. It got zaniness and heart. They even throw in some politics. If you have Netflix and you have some time, it's a show worth checking out!
