More 30 Rock news...

2/26/13 12:34 PM

What’s the Best Sitcom of the Past 30 Years?

We kick off our Sitcom Smackdown, a bracket that pits Cheers, The Simpsons, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, and twelve more comedy greats against each other to find the ultimate champion.

Recaps

Ep.03 - Stride of Pride

The latest stop on Tina Fey’s Farewell Whistlestop Tour of Annoying Things She’s Had to Deal With While Making 30 Rock.

Ep.22 - What Will Happen to the Gang Next Year?

Last night’s season finale felt like the ideal blend of plot, topical jokes, and callbacks.

Ep.20 - Queen of Jordan 2: The Mystery of the Phantom Pooper

Last week, we got 30 Rock’s second live episode. This time around, it’s the show’s second episode set entirely inside a reality show.

Ep.09 - Leap Day

Classic Leap Day traditions include wearing yellow and blue, eating rhubarb, and telling tales of Leap Day William, who lives in the Mariana Trench and emerges every four years to trade children’s tears for candy.

Ep.04 - The Ballad of Kenneth Parcell

“Look out, world! Liz Lemon is 41, covered in paint, and looking for a new best friend.”

Ep.14 - Double-Edged Sword

Just as Canadians have become indispensable to modern comedy, so have jokes about Canadians. And '30 Rock' is a master of the art form.

Ep.09 - Chain Reaction of Mental Anguish

"If you’re not covered in bite marks after intercourse, then something’s wrong."

Ep.08 - College

It’s no big surprise that the perennially awkward Liz Lemon had a rough time in college, what with the Richard Marx hair and the pilonidal cyst. (Do not look that up.)

Ep.07 - Brooklyn Without Limits

Both Carl Paladino and Dov Charney would find a lot to cringe about in this episode.

Ep.06 - Gentleman's Intermission

There may not be a richer, more rewarding relationship on television right now than that between Jack Donaghy and Liz Lemon.

Ep.16 - Floyd

Almost anything would have been less of a gratuitous bummer than Liz's encounter with Floyd.

Ep.12 - Verna

Jan Hook rocks feather earrings and a tattoo of a mermaid “doing it with Captain Morgan”!

Ep.05 - The Problem Solvers

Pure fan fiction, minus the part where Jack tells Liz to take off everything but her glasses.
