This week's 30 Rock was my favoritest ever.

The utter disgust on Jack's face!

Hearing him choke out "They're called Spanx!"

Please tell me you saw it too.

OMG it was HILARIOUS. Best comedy on television, hands down.

Kenneth walking by during the low tone just killed me.

Between James Franco's love pillow and Liz's mustache, those were two of my favorite episodes in recent memory.

I guess I must have been living under a rock, because I wasn't familiar with "30 Rock." I don't watch much TV, either, so I'm sticking with that excuse.

This got me to check out the DVD's from the library. I decided to get the third season; is that a good one, or am I better off with a different season? I don't even know how long ago the third season was...

Great! It's the kind of show where it doesn't matter too much where you start watching. There is vague continuity so it's a little more enjoyable to watch consecutive epsisodes, but no big deal. Season 4 is airing now, I think.

I was expecting sketch comedy. Then, after seeing one episode, I expected it to be a different setup each week.

It reminds me of those Leslie Nielsen comedies, like "Naked Gun." (By they way, Nielsen was once a guest star some years ago in a first-rate and unusual Canadian comedy/drama series called "Due South.")

I'm more used to a "hyperreal" show like "Larry Sanders," (and interesting that Rip Torn was a guest on a "30 Rock" episode), though there are good and bad in both types. The trick with the "silly/unreal/surreal" show is to get that suspension of disbelief going in the audience. To do that, it needs to get over the hump from "pretty damn silly" into "yeah, that's funny, I couldn't help laughing." Though it had its moments, I had trouble doing that with "Airplane."
