After reading many many recommendations of it on the interweb, I finally got around to hiring 30 Rock. I am going about it back-to-front as I am starting with the second season.
Oh, but let me count the ways I am now a little oinking pig in a pile of televisual muck.
I knew we were going to get on famously even before the titles rolled on the first ep. Everyone was back at work at the NBC after summer hiatus. Head writer Tina Fey (and writer of this ep) was welcoming everyone back, telling people she had a wonderful summer, that she did yoga, started a quilt, read two books and broke up with her boyfriend, but insisting that she was 'totally fine' about it.
She ends up in her boss's ( Alec Baldwin) office, and he tells her that basically she's talking a load horseshit, that there was no way she could be okay about her break up cause, 'Women your age have more chance of getting mauled at the zoo, than getting married.'
I can tell already that me and 30 Rock is going to be a warm and wonderful relationship.
