Product Description

Re-enjoy the complete third season of the Primetime Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning comedy 30 Rock, hailed by The New York Times as “its third season” and by The Sun as a “comedy… shown on NBC… [which is a] network.” Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG® Award winner (and show creator) Tina Fey and Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG® Award winner Alec Baldwin star as corporate executive Jack Donaghy and TV writer Liz Lemon (reverse respectively). Together, Jack and Liz manage the workplace chaos with no help from Liz’s loose-cannon stars Tracy Jordan and Jenna Maroney (Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski) and hapless NBC page Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer). The end result is topless break-dancing, professional tetherball, geriatric kidnapping, bird murder, sexual espionage, Appalachian witchcraft, patricide, gay lion tattoos and important life lessons learned from sasquatches. Join in the behind-the-scenes fun with lots of exclusive content and all 22 episodes of the acclaimed third season of 30 Rock from executive producer Lorne Michaels (Hot Rod).

Warning: The third season of 30 Rock may cause fits of "lizzing" (an elevated state of hilarity that involves laughter plus whizzing) with its brilliantly loopy word play, "what the what" situations, and deft turns by a stellar roster of A-list guest stars. Liz Lemon (Emmy-winning geek goddess Tina Fey) trying to avoid jury duty by dressing as Princess Leia? Jenna (Jane Krakowski) starring in a biopic about Janis Joplin (or Jackie Jomp-Jomp due to rights complications that forbid use of Joplin's name and music)? Steve Martin as a fabulously wealthy agoraphobe? I want to go to there! This season, Liz increasingly yearns for a normal life outside of the demands of her sanity-testing job as head writer of TGS, a Saturday Night Live-esque comedy show. Happiness will find Liz, but not before two hilariously doomed relationships, one with a little person (guest star Peter Dinklage), whom she initially mistakes for a child, and the other with a neighbor (Mad Men's Jon Hamm) who doesn't realize people have allowed him to skate through life because of his impossibly good looks. She also has a rude awakening when she joins a group of Ladies who Lunch while on forced administrative leave. Her friendship with Master of the Universe mentor Jack Donaghy (indispensable Emmy-winner Alec Baldwin) is the series' endearing sweet spot.

30 Rock is unlike any other workplace comedy on television. Dancing to its own comic rhythms, the series takes great delight in tweaking sitcom clichés and conventions. In "The Bubble," the scene is set for a montage of Id-driven Tracy Jordan's (Tracy Morgan) wackiest moments on the show. Instead, Liz dreamily reflects, "I'm thinking of some of them right now." Family Guy's got nothing on 30 Rock when it comes to the surreal arbitrary gag, as when naive NBC page Kenneth (Jack McBreyer) realizes he is being sexually harassed by a Miss Vierra (Meredith from The Today Show), or when sociopathic, narcissistic Jenna is taught a lesson by the writers who have banded together as the feathered Fedora-clad Pranksmen. 30 Rock makes truly inspired use of the actors, TV icons, and musicians who appear this season. In "Believe in the Stars," Oprah Winfrey, smelling of "rose water and warm laundry," hilariously appears as herself, kind of. In "The One with the Cast of Night Court," Jennifer Aniston is upstaged by Harry Anderson, Markie Post, and Charles "Mac" Robinson. Salma Hayek makes for an exotic love interest for Jack in a multi-episode arc. The season finale features Sheryl Crow, Clay Aiken, Elvis Costello (a.k.a. Declan McManus, international art thief), Adam Levine, and others brought together for a benefit to find a kidney for Jack's long-lost father (Alan Alda). But the joy of 30 Rock is not the stars, but such brain-tickling lines as, "I watched Boston Legal nine times before I realized it wasn't a new Star Trek," and the charming character grace notes, like seeing the world as Kenneth does, populated by Muppets. In the season finale, Liz remarks that she figures TGS (30 Rock?) has two years left. Say it ain't so! --Donald Liebenson

    "30 Rock", the NBC sitcom that has the most Emmy Awards (22) for a single year for a comedy series. An award-winning series that is critically acclaimed series that in its first and second year, despite being a series that critics raved about, the series has had its challenge due to its low viewership.

    Fortunately, NBC has supported this series and greenlighted a fourth season because "30 ROCK" is unique and one of those rare delights that is on network television. Humorous, entertaining but literally, just a fantastic comedy that has solid writing and a talented cast.

    30 Rock is the shortened address of where NBC Studios is located in New York City, ala 30 Rockefeller Plaza. The show revolves around the crew and the cast of the live sketch comedy "The Girlie Show" which is written by head writer Liz Lemon (Tina Fey, "Saturday Night Live", "Baby Mama", "Mean Girls") and stars actress Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski, "Ally McBeal"). But Liz's boss, Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin, "Knots Landing", "Beetlejuice", "Pearl Harbor") decides to add comedian Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan, "Saturday Night Live", "Scare Tactics") to spice up the show and rename it "TGS with Tracy Jordan".

    The show focuses on what goes behind-the-scenes of the creation of the show and what is going on in the personal lives of several of the main characters (primarily focusing on the lives of Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy) and focuses on relationships and the unique friendship that Jack and Liz tend to develop, while the two deal with their own love life but also their interaction with the writers of TGS and the NBC Page Kenneth Parcell (Jack MacBrayer, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", "Arrested Development").

    "30 ROCK - Season 3' features 22 episodes on three discs.

    30 Rock is a great show.

    From the spot on acting to the laugh out dialogue this is a show with no wasted moments.

    So as not to spoil this show for the three or four people who haven't seen it I'll just mention a couple of the gags which I thought were the funniest this season:

    1) The get out of jury duty gag: It started funny when Liz Lemon dressed as Princess Leah to get out of jury duty in her hometown by saying "I don't think it's fair for me to be on the jury because I can read minds" and it got funnier when the same tactic FAILED in New York;

    2) The Alec Baldwin dressed as an evil Mexican general gag: This is a sight humor one but for me it ranks right up there with Baldwin's Saturday Night Live stint as scout master to Adam Sandler's troubled scout. If you've seen the bit, you're probably already laughing because of being reminded by it and if you haven't seen the bit, trust me: when you see it, you'll laugh.

    Sometimes people like to make these comparisons about the current season to every other season which kind of fails with a show like 30 Rock where every season is kind of its best season.

    Just watch it and laugh for yourself.

    I wish real - life work could be this silly and we could make fun of ourselves and also say wild things and have crazy flashbacks and laugh at work. the cast works well together as if they actually were these characters. fey is brilliant and I love her woman-whose-got -it -all but totally doesn't character. she's a mess on the inside.

    A great T.V. show that just keeps you laughing and laughing with its over the top characters and its hilarity. This show has highly talented actors and the writing is good. I highly recommend this show to anyone with a good sense of humor.

    It was with great expectation that I picked up the 3rd season of 30 Rock. The show had been growing funnier by the show over Seasons 1 and 2. Unfortunately, the 3rd season suffers a bit of a setback in its earlier episodes, but rebounds with a strong finish. Thus, I've given it a 4/5 star rating, to reflect my disappointments.

    In general, what I find funny about 30 Rock is the absurdity of the corporate culture. In the cominc strip Dilbert, it is represented as the point-haired boss, who is incompetent and powerful. In 30 Rock, the absurdity is represented by Jack (Alec Baldwon). The difference between Dibert and 30 Rock is that (at least in Seasons 1 and 2) Jack Donaghy is often correct when interfering with Liz's show, even against educated Liz's university-educated sensibilities. In Season 3, however, Jack's omniscience is absent, and he becomes just one more bumbling boss. Therefore the satire level is lowered, and therefore the enjoyment level. Another decision by the writers is to have Banks (Jack's rival for the CEO-ship of GE) go off the deep end and become a bizarre feral carricature of a leering homosexual. Surely Jack's great rival (who outmaneuvers Jack in the season finale!) deserves better treatment that this.

    Of course, it's still funny, and there are numerous guest stars and plot twists to bring interest to the ongoing storyline. Unfortunately, at this point, I should mention the guest stars. Maybe it's just me, but this year's crop (especially in the early season, they were too self-conscious (i.e. they were such high-[rofile actors that they detracted from the story). "OMG! it's Jennifer Aniston! Oh, look, now it's Steve Martin!", etc.
