I’m giddy – giddy, I tell you – with excitement now that former “bubble” TV show 30 Rock has been renewed for a second season this fall, for I love me some Tina Fey, and, more than everything, I love me some Tina Fey-esque writing.
Take last night’s beyond quotable episode for instance.
Fey’s Liz Lemon and Jane Krakowski’s Jenna have taken guest star Emily Mortimer’s character Phoebe to lunch, to better get to know her now that she’s engaged to Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy.
The three ladies are sitting at the table, and then Jenna – good ol’ reliably, outrageously funny Jenna – says:
“How Sex and the City are we right now? I’m Samantha, [pointing to Phoebe] you’re Charlotte, [pointing to Liz] and you’re the lady at home who watches it.”
How brilliant is that?
I just hope the show can find its rightful audience this summer, be it through reruns, online streaming, or a prompt DVD release. And, of course, that it won’t be negatively impacted by Baldwin’s latest no-no.
