Somebody Gon' Get Pregnant

Anyone else think 30 Rock is the funniest show on television right now? The one-two punch of Alec Baldwin and Tracy Morgan, combined with Tina Fey as the straight man, just gets stronger and stronger each week. The writing is genuinely funny, the plot lines are clever, and the ensemble cast is brilliant. Big fan. Thursdays, yay.

The Tracy Jordan character is becoming dangerously close to Tracy Morgan's real-life persona. So is art imitating life here or the other way around? Let's take a look at some evidence:

Now that's some quality stuff right there. I gotta think that's mostly an act, but I love people that are willing to get silly in public.

Amazing how the world works. As of last week, I had not thought of the movie My Girl since it was last being run over and over again on HBO - about 10 years ago. Then, last week, Ace makes a reference to the brutality Macaulay's death in My Girl (bee stings, and lots of 'em). Then, the actress who played the lead (Vada Sultanfuss in the movie) shows up as Flower Guy's girlfriend in 30 Rock. Spooky.

I love 30 Rock so much, I want to take it out behind the middle school and get it pregnant.
Such a great cast - Kenneth is fantastic and Judah Friedlander is perfect as Judah Friedlander.

Also, no fucking shit on Anna Chlumsky. I'd follow her to Connecticut.

Best new show of the year, by a landslide.

How to you feel about this new Rob Coudry vehicle? To me, it's further proof that I can no longer watch a show with a laugh track.

Ya know, Al, I thought the first one was great...then last night a whole episode came and went without so much as a laugh. I agree, the laugh track is an abomination. Now that 30 Rock and Arrested Development and shows of that ilk have busted the laugh track, I can never go back.

I totally didn't even realize that was Anna Chlumsky. Holy shitballs. In my defense, I suck.

In fairness, lest I suffer the hellish fury of a woman's scorn, the lady friend is the one who pointed that out and so she deserves full credit.

May I also point out how lame we all are for knowing the intricacies of a movie which was really a pre-teen girl flick, the memories of which are so strong that they have survived in our resin-filled brains for 15 years.

Shame on us.

Are there other black nerds, or is it just you and Urkel?

I heard 30 Rock had gotten cancelled for that stupid Andy Richter show. Thank god that was incorrect. It seems like all the good shows get cancelled. Boo. And I agree, Kenneth is about the best character, ever. I loved the scene with the Halloween decor, the BEST EVER.
