Storyline

Tracy is still missing and it seems as if the only one who knows where he is is Kenneth. But Kenneth is not willing to tell where Tracy went to. Tracy stays with Kenneth's cousin Jesse, who is a huge fan of Tracy. Tracy tries to start a new life by changing his name but a non-celebrity life is also not what he wants. Jack's mother comes for a visit because of Jack's up-coming wedding. While Jack's mother likes Liz, she is not too fond of Phoebe and Jack asks Liz for support. Liz and Floyd try to deal with their long-distance relationship, but it doesn't seem easy for both of them. Written by xxxx

30 Rock

With a sensational triumph of six Golden GLobes, 30 Rock is undeniably critics' choice and the buzz pays off with Fey; the creator, at the heart of it, whose vision is crystal clear and on the mark.

It is a single camera sitcom about a writer of a TV Show and the behind-the-camera chaos it goes through before it goes on air. The somewhat distorted concept isn't what the series relies upon, its ideal vacation is to reach for a mature audience with wise and not funny writing.

It is rich on technical aspects like the production design but fails completely on cinematography and background score. As mentioned earlier, the humor isn't forcibly imputed which allows the makers to visit unknown places without any restraints and communicate fluently with the viewers.

The soul of the series is certainly its huge cast who can easily charm their way out of anything but Baldwin and Fey does invest a lot in it and are flat out hilarious in it.

Layered, satirical and thought-provoking writing, ironical humor and injected with enough content to run for its twenty minutes are the high points of this brilliant sitcom. Few cameos and a knack of taking bold moves factors a lot on keeping the audience tangled in its exhilarating world.

Season 01

Even though it takes around 21 acts to attain its adequate closure, the writers haven kept plenty on cards under their sleeve, as in it does offer an intriguing insight on each character's perspective but doesn't give away the equation of theirs with one another; a slick move.

Hiatus

The pitch or the concept doesn't grow rusty despite of being a seen-this-seen-that conflict and the credit would go to Fey's sharp writing and fresh perspective on small things.
