This Post Is Made Possible By That New Netflix Deal Where You Get Like 17 Hours Of DVD-Watching Online In Addition To The Three-At-A-Time Delivery...

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!

30 Rock. What's not to love?

My friend Jack McBrayer plays Kenneth the page and we're all so proud of him. It's quite an accomplishment to hold your own with the likes of Fey, Baldwin & Morgan.

Chris said...

EEG- Awesome! He's great, too.

Vikki- Cool! Kenneth is brilliant! Be sure to tell him that there's at least one person watching in Boyne City, MI.

Word. 30 Rock is brilliant. Vikki, your friend is fantastic - he must be having a blast with his character.

I saw my first full episode on a flight as well and laughed like a fool to the delight and consternation of various passengers.

Jack's hilarious because he is not that much different in real life, except he's much smarter & his accent isn't quite as thick.

I try to watch the show when I can, but just watched a bunch of espisodes online, this show is fucking hilarious. Alec baldwin plays the perfect role. And Tina Fey is sorta hot in a normal, plain way.

GKL: I don't think so, he's been in NYC for a couple of years now. He does come back to LA for the Derby party, usually.

I will tell Jack next time I see him that he has many fans in the Midwest!
