30 Rock 7 Seasons 2011

Season 5
4.6 out of 5 stars (60) IMDb 8.2/10

Jack Donaghy (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Alec Baldwin) is the kind of man every guy wants to be and every girl wants to be with. On the other hand, Liz Lemon (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Tina Fey) is the kind of woman everyone wants to invite over for comic relief. The three-time Emmy -winning series returns for season five and it looks like Liz finally finds her elusive soulmate. The rest of the cast, well, they know nothing about boundaries or political correctness as they deal with each other and their new parent company, Kabletown. That's Kabletown with a "K."

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
I've followed 30 Rock for its five years, and I've pretty much loved every show they've ever done, because it's always been ridiculous and funny, and enjoyable. Season 4 lacked a certain something, maybe it wasn't as funny as it usually is, maybe it wasn't as over the top as usual, both of these things were true.

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.

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.

30 Rock has been the most well written, well executed and smartest show on television. Season 5 is just more proof of the amazing talent that exudes from Tina Fey and her team. The only thing that I can say is bad about this season is that it isn't being released until late November.

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).

I love this show. This season was great, especially "Queen of Jordan." The inclusion of Matt Damon was also great, he and Tina Fey have great chemistry together...although Tina has great chemistry with everyone so no worries there.

Some people don't get the comedy genius of 30 rock, butt for those who do, this set is a must. It will provide many hours of enjoyment & make for a great marathon of viewing on a rainy weekend. If you are new to this show, start with season 1, for those who love it, it is just part of the collection & usually contains the first 4 seasons as well.

All it takes is watching one episode and you'll fall in love with Liz Lemon and her gang of idiots. 30 Rock is one of the best shows I've ever watched and am going to miss the series when it ends this year.

Laugh out loud funny- every episode. Alec Baldwin's delivery is priceless. I viewed the entire season while home sick with the flu and the plots and delivery made the days fly by.
