A personal initiative to live more appreciatively

#148: 30 Rock

30 Rock just aired its live show. I think I'll be laughing about it for days. A 'Zou Bisou Bisou' allusion? Incredible.

With an inordinate amount of television stations now in existence, it seems like so much of what airs is insipid, especially in regards to what qualifies as comedy these days. And then there's 30 Rock.

Aside from the fact that Tina Fey might be my favorite celebrity (yes, even more than Tori Spelling), there is so much to appreciate about 30 Rock. Liz Lemon is the 21st century Everywoman. The writing is hysterically smart, clearly valued and held to a high standard, and caters to a smart audience. The actors, as they proved tonight, are incredibly talented. And the best aspect, it never fails to make me laugh, hard and loud.
