Personally I laughed like a Jew watching The Daily Show numerous times.

post #204 of 296

Am I the only one that can't stand Elaine Stritch's guest appearances?

post #205 of 296

I like her generally, but this whole episode fell really flat for me outside of Tracy's story (and Couchy).  Colleen can be fun, but they just kept hitting the "racist" button over and over and over this week.

post #206 of 296

I'd don't know why there is so much indifference to 30 Rock lately, there is so much great writing thrown in that it requires multiple viewings to catch it all.

 

-Jack's misplacing his 'scissors' right before his ribbon cutting

 

- Kenneth: "my 8 yr old niece walked down the aisle to that song at her wedding"

 

-what 'woggle' really means

 

-Liz dancing while Tracey and his son make it rain

 

-Dick Cheney apparently has retractable wings and rocket arms now.

 

-Jenna's 'sexual walkabout' checklist included "the lorax"

 

-what Jenna's "brain" thinks

 

 

.....that being said, Jack's mom schtick gets really old, really quick

post #207 of 296

"If I'm going to fall down a mountain and die, I'd rather do it for free" will from this day forward be shamelessly plagiarized by me whenever anyone asks me if I ski.

 

Parodies of Clint Eastwood's Superbowl commercial, a running joke about the hardness of Bazooka Joe bubble gum... the amazingness of this show defies believability.

post #208 of 296

The Keach commercials had me howling. When he defiantly spit at the camera, I had to pause the DVR.

post #209 of 296

Keach and Jenna were the highlights, I particularly loved that her rock bottom was making out with Paz de la Huerta at a children's museum.  And Paul wordlessly handcuffing Tracy to the bed was a nice, perverted note to end on.

post #210 of 296

Criss and Liz's role playing was quite amusing....and a little disturbing.

 

I also liked the fact that an 'Kouchtown' couch may be a factor in getting Avery out of N Korea 

 

"...because nunchuking can wear a guy out...."

post #211 of 296

Bazooka Joe... I can't get over that bit.

 

"What did Theodore 'Bazooka' Joe do when all his father left him was a pink rock quarry? He baked those rocks and sold them to children as gum."

 

 

 

 

post #212 of 296

Again the joke writing in this show continues to spit in the face of excellence and defiantly declare that excellence is for the mediocre.

 

And man, Marsden is fucking killing it. I liked him before and his misuse at the hands of the X-Men franchise is legendary, but he's a damn delight. Best Liz boyfriend, easily.

I don't know about best, but he's such a different flavor from the Beeper King that it's hard to compare the two.  But yes, Mardsen is great, especially the good humor and discomfort he brought to the gay porn roleplaying.

post #214 of 296

I think the Beeper King is a better example of the show's joke style, but the chemistry between Tina Fey and Chris Marsden has been surprisingly sweet. 

post #215 of 296

Seriously, his reaction at Liz throwing him against the wall was so great.

post #216 of 296

Anyone else catch it when Tracy called Jenna "Jane"?

Yes, right after he said he doesn't make mistakes :)

post #218 of 296

 for the 30 Rock live episode next week....a guest star!

A young Tracy Jordan is infiltrating Kabletown!

 

According to TVLine, "Community" actor Donald Glover has been cast in the second live episode of "30 Rock" as a young Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) airing Thursday, April 26 at 8:30 p.m.

In the episode, Kabletown decides to discontinue "TGS" as a live show. While Liz and Jack don't mind, Kenneth does his best to convince the "TGS" staff that live episodes are worth it.

Here's where Glover comes in: According to executive producer Robert Carlock, Kenneth proves his point by reminding everyone of the history of "TGS." As a result, most of the episode consists of flashbacks to old shows featuring Glover as a young Tracy Jordan.

 

While this is the first time Glover will play a key role on "30 Rock," it's hardly his first stint on the NBC sitcom. In addition to a series of cameos, Glover was a writer on the series before landing his "Community" gig, and he also did the vocal work for an extended version of Morgan's Season 1 jingle, "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah."
 

“Tracy wasn’t available, so Donald came in and [performed the extra material],” Carlock told TVLine. “I don’t think you can tell. It’s pretty remarkable. All the spoken stuff is Donald doing Tracy.”

 

post #219 of 296

Glover does a pretty good Tracy (and even better Chris Rock) in his stand up, so I'm all for it.  Although I thought the previous live show was more impressive than funny.

post #220 of 296

I wasn't crazy about the first live show, and I still think it's an awkward format for the show to drop into, but I was absolutely dying during Tracy and Jon Hamm's blackface Odd Couple.  The transition to Tracy just sitting there staring daggers at him was magnificent.

post #221 of 296

Yeah this had a real energy to it, Hamm is awesome.  I was hoping to get more of Glover's Tracy impression.

post #222 of 296

I was dying during this.

 

"BANJO!"

 

"Aaaarrrggghhh!"

Me too, but it was still pretty amusing.  All the golden age television stuff was just great, and my favorite subtle moment was Fred Armisen as Frank 2.0.  Hoping I'll be able to check out the west coast feed online at some point.  Don't think I ever saw that version the last time they did this.

post #224 of 296

Who was the walk-on in the first scene of the East Coast version?   We got Kim Kardashian.  

post #225 of 296

Jesus Horse-fucking Christ, that was amazing.

Paul McCartney.

 

(...I know, I know.)

 

Jon Hamm appeared in the "David Brinkley" segment during our feed, also, in addition to the "Blackface" sketch.

 

"BANJO!!!"

post #227 of 296

The first half of the live show I was laughing so hard it hurt.

 

post #228 of 296

For the love of God, Lorne, book Hamm for hosting duties again next season as soon as possible.

DAMMIT. Was the punchline still "I broke your toilet"?

post #232 of 296

Paul falls down in the bathroom, hits his head, and emerges asking "Who am I?" Liz immediately grabs him and says "You're my boyfriend!" and hauls him off the stage.

 

How many flubs did you guys notice? I saw at least two stagehands in shots, one early and one in the scene I described above. And of course a couple of slips in line readings.

post #233 of 296

In the late scene between Jenna and Hazel (West feed), the background stagehands were so obvious I couldn't tell if they were supposed to be there or not.

post #234 of 296

I think those two guys were supposed to be there, that hallway is usually bustling.

post #235 of 296

There was plenty of funny stuff, but I just can't get on board with the 30 Rock live episodes. It's so totally the opposite of everything that I love about the show. It's built on rapid-fire jokes, and the rhythm just isn't right in the live episodes. They do an admirable job, but it's not for me.

 

That said, I loved watching Fallon break because of Armisen's cross-dressing telethon operator.

post #236 of 296

I'm pretty sure Armisen was just there to be the Fran stand-in and the cross-dressing telethon operator. Which cracks me up.

post #237 of 296

It's not a joke/reference that will have much of a shelf-life, or would even connect with half the audience as it aired for that matter, but I did laugh out loud at Paul coming in singing "Zou Bisou Bisou".

post #238 of 296

Just watched the west coast feed. There were quite a few change-ups and new jokes, but I still prefer the east coast version, warts and all.

post #239 of 296

I was surprised at the amount of slip ups last night. Their first live show, which was not as funny, went a lot smoother technically.

 

Also, I wonder why Amy Poehler made no attempt to look like Tina Fey.

Agreed, although I did like the Brian Williams cameo, and they did still get Hamm in black face.  So not a total loss, but Kim Kardashian instead of Sir Paul?  That's some serious bullshit.

Fuck you, man. WEST COAST RULES!!!

 

Edit: Also, if you don't care to watch the other version on your computer, check your cable company's VOD service. Time-Warner Cable in the Los Angeles area is showing the East Coast feed on OnDemand.

"I'm Nazi doctor Heinrich Spaceman."

 

....there can never be too much Spaceman.

 

the east coast version gets the nod for the sole reason that the Kardashian thing was on the west coast version....

post #243 of 296

I LOVED it. Zou Bisou, Spaceman's commercials, the news segment and Hamm doing a minstrel show damn near killed me. Kardashian was the only black eye, though saved by the closing joke.

post #244 of 296

Okay already, someone clue me in on Forte's song.

post #245 of 296

Mad Men reference.

post #246 of 296
It was pretty funny, but it was a snl episode disguised as 30 Rock. When you've got Baldwin and Hamm, that doesn't matter though.
post #247 of 296

I would love to see an whole episode of 30 Rock that was clips of old NBC shows.

post #248 of 296

Isn't that what it was? Not that I didn't love it. It was absolutely hilarious. 

post #249 of 296

When Mad Men is done, someone get Hamm in a sitcom ASAP.

 

God was Baldwin just killing it as Not-Dean Martin.  Everything out of his mouth in that segment was just gold.

 

And I think my crush on Kristen Schaal is veering into dark territory.

post #250 of 296

Richard Dickson just said everything I came here to say. I wanna see six seasons and a movie of Baldwin's drunk variety show host. That's a character made for Ron Burgundy-like icon-ization.

"Donkey Stringbean, everybody!"

 

Yes, Kristen Schaal has mysteriously become hotter. When she, Katrina Bowden, & the other chick were in their 60s dancer costumes, I was ranking each one in my head. Schaal came in second and Bowden came in third. Weird.

Also,

"Banjo!!"
