Laughter in High Definition

I’ve recently been re-watching the fourth season of 30 Rock, and I’m pleasantly surprised at how much I’ve been laughing.  In many ways, the show is a total opposite of what I think is the funniest short-lived sitcom ever, Arrested Development.  AD worked by building in gags that would percolate over entire seasons (or the entire series), making it wonderfully quotable by fans.  30 Rock, on the other hand, is an example of every episode being packed with one-off jokes, jokes that move so fast you might not catch them.

Here’s one of my favorite gags from the fourth season.  It’s from the time that Liz Lemon had the chance to host her own talk show, Dealbreakers.  Turns out that high-definition cameras don’t always bring out the best in you.
