30 Rock went live last night on NBC, and the reviews have not been the kindest ever. Personally, I enjoyed the energy of it all, but about midway through, it started to lag a touch. Still, not a total failure. If anything, the experiment showed that single-camera comedies really need to stay single camera (although the clever solution for Liz’s flashbacks was pretty hilarious). That being said, there was something fantastic about watching the actors play off the audience. It almost made me pine for the traditional sitcom. And yes, I’m aware that there are plenty of sitcoms on the air with studio audiences. But they’re never as funny (and let’s face it, most of the laughter comes from a track).
What did you think about the show?
