Has Liz Lemon invented a word for simultaneously laughing and crying? If such a word existed, its synonym would be “30 Rock series finale.” I know I’m not the only viewer who sat through the second half of last night’s 30 Rock laughing hysterically through tears. More
Topic: Liz Lemon
I’m starting to accept that tonight really is the end of 30 Rock. That after tonight’s series finale, there will be no more Liz Lemon, Jack Donaghy, Jenna Maroney and Tracy Jordan. Sure they’ll live on in syndication forever (and hopefully ever), but it’s not the same. Even though I can rewatch 30 Rock episodes over and over and find things I missed the first few times, it’s still not the same. Blerg, I’m like really upset guys. More

When NBC first released Liz Lemon’s wedding announcement two weeks before the 30 Rock wedding episode was set to air, with no plans having been set on the show, I was disappointed. Then I watched last night’s episode, and I realized that downplaying Liz’s wedding was exactly the right way to go More
Sure, last night’s 30 Rock was only the third episode of the season, but after two weeks of sporadic giggles, I was laughing the entire way through the latest installment. I realized during the opening credits why it was happening. Tina Fey wrote it, of course. More
Tonight is 30 Rock‘s seventh and final season premiere, and I’m okay with it ending. It’s a bittersweet time, because, as much as I’ll miss the TGS crew, I know that it’s better to end on a high note than to fade out after too many seasons, having lost fans and barely holding onto the viewers who feel obligated to watch.

While I’ve always identified with the socially awkward writer in Liz Lemon, I’m starting to realize that Leslie Knope’s the better role model. More
February 14th is coming up faster than your single friends can say “oh, I didn’t even notice today was Valentine’s Day” and no one is more excited than Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) on 30 Rock. But it’s not because she’s dating James Marsden this season. Nope, it’s because it’s Anna Howard Shaw Day, Liz’s Valentine’s Day subsitute for all the single women out there. More
he Arrested Development reunion (and your subsequent realization that now you have to shell out for Showtime) isn’t the only news to come out of this weekend’s New Yorker Festival. At her interview with Ariel Levy on Friday night, Amy Poehler asserted television’s superiority over movies, particularly in the area of multifaceted female characters.
“I think films are kind of catching up in a way to where television has been for a long time. Television is still, in my opinion, the best place for female characters,” opined Poehler.
We’re inclined to agree — sure, this has been a banner year for female-focused movies, but television has been rocking the lady-led shows for a while now. Just look at Lorelai on Gilmore Girls or The Wire’s Kima or take your pick of the four besties mini-genre: Sex and the City, Golden Girls, or Designing Women. In fact, television is building on the precedent those shows have set with a current crop of female heroines that are, frankly, killing it, including (especially) Poehler’s own Leslie Knopes on Parks & Recreation. Let’s check out some of the rest of the best.
