In Praise of 30 Rock and Tina Fey

If Badcock can yammer on about Nazi warplanes make good names for boobs (which is stupid, as clearly "Beanbags at the Top of the Stairs" or "Naughty Puppies with Pink Noses" is all anyone could ever need, in terms of boobie terminology), I can certainly take a quick pause from our Sports-Centered blogging, and say that Tina Fey deserves an Emmy, and possibly a Nobel Prize for delivering this line tonight (I paraphrase):

"The difference between your momma and a washing machine is that when I drop a load in a washing machine, it don't follow me around for a week."

That's just fucking awesome. I almost choked laughing at that. As far as I'm concerned though, Alec Baldwin is the hero of the show. To all of you lamenting Arrested Development's departure, 30 Rock may be for you.

I totally have a girl crush on Tina Fey. After watching the first episode of "30 Rock," I very nearly gave up on it. It blew and I was so disappointed. But I stuck with it and I'm glad I did.

That first episode was a little rough, but man did they get it going in the right direction in a hurry. It can take a couple of years for a show to get as confident in its jokes as 30 Rock has. That's what reminds me of Arrested Development. Halfway through their first season, they've hit upon exactly what makes them funny.

Tina Fey has been a crush for many of the IDYFT team since she took over at the news desk on SNL. There were weeks where she was the reason to watch.

And she has resurrected Tracy Morgan, who I always felt deserved another chance. Spaceman Jones always made me laugh.

I laughed harder than I've laughed in a long time while watching the episode where Jack takes Tracy and Kenneth to the golf club with him, and the other member of his foursome started humping Kenneth while "correcting his golf swing" ifyouknowwhatimean, andithinkyoudo.
