Product Description

Re-experience the complete fifth season of the Primetime Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winning comedy 30 Rock, heralded as “funny” by some random Twitter user and “a bitterly merry comic jihad against corporate stupidity and mendaciousness” by Glenn Garvin of the Miami Herald -- which is pretty much what the Twitterer said in 140 characters or less. Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG® Award winner Tina Fey stars as showrunner Liz Lemon and Primetime Emmy®, Golden Globe® and SAG® Award winner Alec Baldwin is corporate executive Jack Donaghy in this behind-the-scenes romp about sketch show “TGS;” its neurotic stars, Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) and Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski) ; hapless NBC page Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer) and the rest of the befuddled crew working to create the “magic of television.” Brought to you by the folks at GE Kabletown, it’s a season of video obituaries, cross-dressing love, page showdowns, Canadian births and other strange events in 22 blerg-worthy episodes from executive producer Lorne Michaels.

Amazon.com

No doubt a lot of work goes into the daft, delirious comedy of 30 Rock, but it seems to spring fully formed from the brow of Tina Fey. Ridiculous plot turns and giddy wordplay unfold organically in every episode. Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, and the supporting cast turn every episode into a nimble dance--punctuated by pratfalls. There's something truly elegant about 30 Rock, a sense of flow and delight that runs under the surface of every episode. Over the course of season five, Liz Lemon (Fey), the eternally floundering head writer of sketch comedy show TGS, struggles to maintain her relationship with airplane pilot Carol (guest star Matt Damon); unflappable and domineering network executive Jack Donaghy (Baldwin) navigates life as a husband and father while fighting to maintain his status within the new hierarchy of Kabletown; erratic star Tracy Jordan (Morgan) lusts after awards while his wife gets a reality show (one entire episode is presented as an episode of Queen of Jordan); greedy, grasping Jenna (Krakowski) does her best to weasel her way into celebrity; and eternally cheerful page Kenneth (McBrayer) glides above all the chaos with a blissful smile.

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

    By M. Bullions on July 26, 2011
    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.

    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.

    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).

    If you have never watched 30 Rock, I highly recommend watching it. It's a hilarious show that will make you laugh the entire episode. If you like the humor in Parks and Recreation or The Office, you will like this show. This is a good season and if you don't own it yet I recommend buying it. This is a good place to buy it, it's one of the cheapest places to get it (although it may be a bit cheaper on eBay if you are ok with it being used).

    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.

    I discovered this show a couple of years ago, and while I am still behind on Season 6, the preceding seasons, especially Season 5, were laugh-out-loud funny! I never used to appreciate a lot of certain types of humor (adult humor), and now I understand why: I was too young! There's a reason there is a rating system! Anyway, to make it short, if you are already a fan of Tina Fey and Alex Baldwin, you will enjoy watching their hilarious exchanges and the escapades of everyone who works on "The Girlie Show". The timing of each line, gesture, and action is perfect. I don't know how they shoot these episodes without cracking up a hundred times, but of course these are professional actors and comedians, so they must have a method of keeping a straight face.

    Best show and it doesn't matter what season. I have never have experienced a show that NEVER takes itself seriously and it always enjoyable. The Office and Parks and Rec took themselves too seriously (Pam and Jim, for instance), Scrubs stayed on too long, and most others just fizzle out. This show did not. Funny, funny and more funny. You can criticize the actors and their lives off the set, but the show itself ROCKS, just like its name.
