Remembering 30 Rock (The Series that Reaganed)

NBC’S 30 ROCK wrapped up a seven-season run last night.  It’s been one of my favorite shows for most of my time in Hawaii, and I’m sad to see it go.  There’s been a lot of reflecting on the series, so I thought I’d put the links to various articles in one place.

Here’s one from Relevant Magazine about “3 lessons from the best sitcom on television.”

Grantland posted an interesting look at the show and race here.  They also posted an appreciative article on Jenna Maroney, one of the show’s funniest characters here (including some of her best lines in pics).

You can check out NPR‘s look at the seven-season series and “what it meant for women on television” here.

Even the folks at Christianity Today got into the act through their her.meneutics site here.

And here’s one of my favorite moments from one of my favorite episodes, the one where Liz has to go to the bad side of town to get back her cell phone, which she left in a cab.  Ah, the stories she fabricated . . .

I’ll miss the cast of TGS, but I’m glad I’ll get to revisit them in reruns.  A show ahead of its time and in spite of its time, indeed.
