30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)
 
Well, sadly (for me) one of my favorite sitcoms of all time is coming to an end after 7 seasons.

What will become of the adorable Liz Lemon? Will she end up having a baby with Cyclops? Will Jack take over Kabletown? Will Jenna's wedding, to a Jenna impersonator, be a by-the-book affair? Will we finally learn the truth behind Kenneth's age mystery? What will happen to Pete? To Frank? Will Lutz finally get the respect he deserves?

30 Rock is, IMHO, so incredibly clever and funny. Tina Fey is a national treasure, with her geeky Star Wars awkwardness. Alec Baldwin's Jack Donaghy is a right wing nightmare, so commanding.

So if you're a 30 Rock fan, pull up a chair, reminisce about your favorite episodes, and enjoy the last hurrah.

:beer:

First episode is Thursday, October 4th.

30 Rock is my favorite current sit-com! It's officially the final season? I hadn't heard that! That sucks!

I'm a fan but I feel like the show ran its course even before the prior season. Both Liz and Jack seem to be getting progressively stupider as the show goes on.

If it doesn't end with the reveal that the entire show was Kenneth doing a tour in the distant future or some such, I'll be very disappointed.

Very early in the series, Jack said of Kenneth "We'll all end up working for him....or dead by his hand."

:lol:

I think Kenneth is a great character ("Science was my most favorite subject, especially the Old Testament.), and I love all the hints they've dropped over the years.

Oh yeah, he's grown into one of my favorite characters. I didn't care much for him at first until I started noticing all those little hints. And even though they're a little more blatant now, I still love keeping my eyes and ears open for them. I love those jokes that make you pause and think for a moment.

In a small way, it reminds me of the slow reveal about Dietrich on Barney Miller. Though, of course, they are two completely different types of characters.

I'm looking forward to the new season but I'm sad it's the last one. I only started watching it a few years ago and got caught in the space of a few weeks so it doesn't feel like it's been on that long to me.

Well, we knew Jenna was going to be the Brdie from Hell, but that dove scene was even more than I expected! Poor Lutz...LOL. And her destroying Liz's apartment was pretty good too.

Meanwhile, Hazel is saving herself for "a Grade A Pork Machine"...but those are very expensive. I'm still not quite sure what to make of Hazel.

I never get tired of them ragging on NBC :lol:

You're trying to destroy the network?! This explains everything! How long has this been going on? Seven years? Eight?!

Personally, I can't wait to see Joe Rogan as Mandela.

I smell Emmy!

It might just be my glaucoma medicine talking, but I thought the Governor Dunston episode was hilarious. Very crisp, great dialogue. I thought it was great, "like when BP heroically tried to lubricate the Gulf of Mexico."

Good to see Cooter back, that poor bastard.

Bryan Cranston was inspired as Kenneth's step dad Ron. And this was an excellent Jenna episode. "I just got an idea for a song: Rum-Soaked Tampon!"

:lol:

Oh, and I almost forgot the scene in the office supply store. Classic.

I liked last nights episode but I am starting to find Jenna annoying, even more than Tracy. Everything with Jack, Liz, and Criss was great though.
