30 Rock Series Finale

"saving people"
Normally, after a series finale, I've come to LiveJournal to write up my thoughts about how a show ended.

With 30 Rock, I don't even know what to write, but I thought they really nailed it with the finale.

They ended each relationship well (and surprise declarations of a love, whatever that might be, between Jack and Liz), gave them chances to have it all, kept everyone in character, had a sweet and charming ending, and pulled the ole snow globe trick in the tag in the best way possible.

My friend, Krysti, called me after it was over and I was so glad she did when she did because I was about to lose it. Some people might think it's silly to get emotional over a TV sitcom, but I've never felt so personally connected to a character like I have with Liz Lemon and to see her story wrap up was so bittersweet.

Above everything, I'm thankful to Tina Fey, NBC, Lorne Michaels, and the entire cast and crew of 30 Rock for existing and creating such a love letter to Television.

Superman and 30 Rock

"saving people"
Remember when I wrote this?

Guess I wasn't the only one thinking there was something to the 30 Rock cast looking like it would fit perfectly into the Superman mythos.

Thanks, Rolling Stone. You've made all my Tina Fey as Lois Lane and shipper dreams come true.

Wee!Clark: The world's too big, Mom.
Martha: Then, make it small.

Since it's getting closer to the release date and TV promos, interviews, and posters have started emerging, I've been thinking a lot about how Christopher Nolan & Co. might end their Batman trilogy.

I've seen a lot of freakout (mostly, on Tumblr and YouTube) about the new Once Upon A Time promo's ending sequence.

August = Pinocchio

"saving people"
While I don't like the August Is Pinocchio Theory, let's be honest. That's probably who he is.

Sorry, Liz Lemon. I can't ride the Criss Train. And, it's not because I'm a long-time Jack/Liz shipper.

Times That Emma Swan Has Bested Regina Mills:

- burned the last pages of Henry’s book to prevent Regina from finding out who she is

- found Joe Doe (A.K.A. her father, A.K.A. David Nolan, A.K.A., Prince Charming, A.K.A. James, A.K.A. The Shepherd)

- made sure Ashley got to keep her baby

- rescued Henry and Archie from the old mines

-  became Sheriff (even after Regina fired her, Emma teamed up with Mr. Gold, confessed to Mr. Gold’s shenanigans, and STILL got elected despite Regina’s puppet being the only candidate left)

- found Ava and Nicholas’ father, which resulted in making sure they got to stay together (while Regina was going to have them shipped off to Boston to separate homes)

I’m okay with Regina getting the upper-hand in the middle of the season because look at all the heroine has done despite the villain’s desire to make everyone else miserable.

I just don't understand why you won't watch anything on NBC on Thursdays at 8/7c.

I wish NBC would promote the heck out of their Thursday night lineup. It's such a good run of shows. I wish we cold live in a world in which people LOVED to watch Community, Parks and Rec, The Office, 30 Rock, and Up All Night. In whatever order works.

Do I worry that 30 Rock will get cancelled? You bet I do. I don't know what more I can do, though, unless, I pull a Chuck fan move and contact 30 Rock's sponsors. Although, I think 30 Rock is doing a pretty good job with its product placement within the show. Maybe I should go to Outback Steakhouse more often and let them know I love 30 Rock. I don't know.

I just know that I've gotten so many of my friends watching the show and still...less than 4 million watch the show. That makes me so sad, America. You're missing big boy comedy. 30 Rock writers are the smartest in the biz. 30 Rock actors are the funniest people on Television (if you've ever wondered why Alec Baldwin wins all those awards, watch Jack Donaghy negotiate with himself).

Dear NBC, I realize their numbers are low (and that's partly your fault because you've moved it around so much, but anyway...) I'd be okay with it if you would renew 30 Rock for a 7th and Final Season. Let them end it the way they want to. You owe that to Tina Fey and Company because let's be honest, they gave you something to be proud of (the most Emmy nominations ever) during one of your lowest phases in existence.

"Chuck Versus the Goodbye"

"saving people"

I choose to believe Morgan was right.

True Love’s Kiss restored Sarah’s memories.

Chuck inspired friendship and heroism and told a great love story.

Thank you, NBC and Warner Bros, for giving us five seasons of Chuck. It was the Little-Show-That-Could, always struggling to stay alive. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for letting them end it on their own terms. I will forever be grateful for that.

"I'd give anything for one."Collapse )

This promo is one of the best I've seen on Broadcast Television. It should a) be studied for its awesomeness and b) make you want to watch the show, if you're not already.
