30 Rock: Season 5
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Guest stars are as wildly varied as Susan Sarandon (as a newly released sex offender), Queen Latifah (as a congresswoman ordering more diversity on NBC), and Condoleezza Rice (as herself, a former lover of Jack). Highlights include an episode performed live (in which Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Liz Lemon in her memories), dozens of inspired tossed-off bits like Kenneth being used as a human sushi platter, and celebrities' will to mock themselves mercilessly, like Matt Lauer fawning over Tracy in an interview. Extras include audio commentaries by completely inappropriate guests like Aaron Sorkin, deleted scenes, animated shorts of Jack Donaghy as a superhero, and more. 30 Rock: Season 5 combines lunacy and surefooted rhythm. --Bret Fetzer

However, season five brings in enough standalone episodes to make the season memorable. Season five included the live show, which went extremely well, and I hope they decide to do another live show next season. It felt like you were watching a sketch on Saturday Night Live, which Tina Fey worked on for nine years. It was a huge success, in my opinion.
Also, the 100th episode, "Double-Edged Sword", "Queen of Jordan", "TGS Hates Women", and "Regeaning" were the best shows of the season. They each incorporated new and bold ideas, such as "Queen of Jordan" acting as a pilot of a reality show given to Tracy's character's wife. This episode is simply making fun of the ridiculousness attached to reality programming, but it also serves as one of 30 Rock's best shows.
I can't wait to buy this season. It was definitely a five-star year.
And yes, both version of the Live Show will be on the DVD, with the East Live Show being the official version and the West Live Show a DVD Extra!

The fifth season of 30 Rock was a very good one. I think that they perfectly managed to keep the storyline interesting and not to crowded with guest stars. There is some real character development for Liz this season who for the first time starts out a season in a relationship. But of course it will not last. Having Matt Damon play her boyfriend was very good, but also led to him not being available for a lot of episodes. There was not really enough time for us to bond with him.Read more ›
I highly suggest that everyone pick this up so you can enjoy one of 30 Rock's greatest seasons and televisions greatest shows (even if it is missing a foreign girl with two daddies).

|Price too high||
It'll probably come down considerably by spring of next year, if not earlier. I was able to get the 4th season last spring for less than $20, about 6 months after it was released. Patience, young Jedi.

|Both versions of Live Episode?||
I don't know for sure, but I'd say it is very likely.

|when will this be released???||
I'm thinking probably December, since Tina Fey's pregnancy is delaying the next season until mid-season.
