30 Rock is one of the best shows on TV.

Every time I hear a Mickey Rouke joke from Jenna, I laugh out loud just thinking of all he's done to her over the years!

Since the NBC Press Release was very vague about the extras on this Season 6 DVD Set, I just wanted to quickly write them down for you. Included is:

- Audiocomentary on "Dance Like Nobody's Watching" by writer Tracey Wigfield and writer/producer Tom Ceraulo
- Audiocomentary on "Alexis Goodlooking and the case of the Missing Whisky" by Judah Friedlander
- Audiocomentary on "Standards and Practices" by Jack McBrayer
- Audiocomentary on "Live from Studio 6H" by Jane Krakowski and composer/producer Jeff Richmond
- West Coast Version of the Live Show (23:23 min)
- Behind the Scenes of "Live from Studio 6H" (7:24 min)
- Warm up Featurette before the Live Show (8:42 min)
- Deleted Scenes

As you can see they have cut down the number of Audiocomentaries immensely, as there used to be up to 10 per Season Set. And again there is no gag reel, which is something I would so love to see from a show like this. Also, I wished there were more interviews with cast and crew.

Overall this was a great season. It amazes me how this show manages to stay fresh after 6 years. Nothing feels worn out, actually to the contrary they manage to bring in new elements and going back to some of the core storylines of the show. I loved the addition of James Marsden as Liz's new boyfriend Criss. The writers managed to create a loveable character and actually used him in a good way throughout the Season, giving Liz and Criss a possible happy ending for the upcoming final and seventh season. I also loved this years Live Episode and Queen of Jordan Episode. I also need to mention Jenna, for whom the writers really stepped up their, already high, game. Her remarks and storylines were really a highlight of the Season for me, especially in the beginning.

All in all I highly recommend the sixth season of 30 Rock, although I wished they put more effort into the DVD Extras.

...I love her! It's always a risk for a show to add a new character after so long, but in this case it worked...her particular brand of crazy is somewhat similar to Jenna's, but still worthwhile and good for many laughs. And it's not just her that I love; the show is fresher and funnier than it's been in at least a couple years. Maybe not quite perfectly consistent, but its best episodes kept me laughing hysterically from beginning to end. All this, AND I get to look at cutie James Marsden? GOOD TIMES. I'm happy that 30 Rock is entering its final year, because if the show can maintain this level of writing and acting for one more season, it will be one of the few comedies to end its run before going totally stale. And I am hopeful that this will be the case, because some of the episodes in season six were every bit as good as those in the show's first couple seasons. Very funny stuff...now if Tina Fey would just write another hilarious book...

This show is clever, witty and a little crazy! I enjoy being able to watch them sequentially and at my own schedule online.

First, the positive. Baldwin was OUTSTANDING in the live episode and the Hazel character is a very good fit/counter with most characters. Throughout the season, Baldwin has been the most consistently funny even though you can tell he's working with very difficult material at times.

Now, the bad. I've seen every episode of every season and like most up until season 6. There are big changes that have changed the character and quality of the show.

First, there are too many jokes. I know that sounds counter to the goal of a comedy show but we're getting quantity over quality. Good jokes aren't given time to breathe and comedic timing has been off with many of the actors stepping over one another's lines. It's as though the actors are more concerned with plowing through a string of jokes than reacting to jokes and allowing the lines to be heard and sink in.

Second, there is too much focus on trivial characters. I like Lutz as a punching bag but a whole episode dedicated to making him feel like part of a group?

Third, too much catharsis. It seems this season saw a lot of stories trying to wrap up by the end of the episode with some big character change that was completely unnecessary. It felt forced.

Four, too much suspension of disbelief. The writers have fallen back on stereotypes rather than good story lines about flawed but real humans. Several absurd things happen and rather than react in disbelief the characters become a part of it to the point of not being human. Every character is guilty of that this season but the biggest offenders are Tracy and Jenna. Even a fool has some level of sensibility.

It never fails. I'll find a new show that I just love and it'll go flat in 2 seasons. That is not the case with 30 Rock! It has been consistently top notch every season. Season 6 is no different as it keeps you laughing. Every time I hear a Mickey Rouke joke from Jenna, I laugh out loud just thinking of all he's done to her over the years! Clever writing and wacky humor make this one of the best comedies on TV now, in my opinion. I will be sad to see it end but I do feel like its a show I can go back to every couple months.
