Watch Oprah on 30 Rock

Sunday Funnies: 30 Rock

I know I don't usually recap 30 Rock around here, but after this week's episode — which featured a guest appearance from Oprah — I figured there was no better time to talk about the show. If you haven't seen the episode yet, the whole thing's on Hulu, so treat yourself this Sunday and give it a watch. Some of my favorite moments:

  • The idea that Jack Donaghy's tranquilizers might lead to "sleep crime."
  • Liz, under the influence of said tranquilizers, whispering that she was "snitting next to Barpo."
  • Tracy Jordan's monster claw.
  • Sweater capes!
  • Oprah's ninth-grade boyfriend.

If none of this makes sense to you, you owe it to yourself to watch that episode now.

And then there's the moment that had me laughing so hard that I cried so hard that I literally couldn't see my TV. Out of context, it might not even be as funny, but I'm telling you, at the time, it was the most hilarious thing I'd ever seen. To watch the clip (and really, it's just a couple of seconds long, so you might as well),

I was just watching this episode and wishing that Buzz did a regular recap of it!! This episode was hilarious, although I still think the episode where Liz's parents come to visit might be my favorite. The sweater capes were excellent. Also, Anadi, thank you for reminding me of Brian Fellow's Safari Planet, I needed the laugh. I have a friend who, every time we see each other we go, "That's CRAZY! A rabbit can't cut its own hair!"

I've loved 30 rock since the first episode. It makes me laugh every single time. Liz blurting her entire life to Oprah the second she saw her was so funny. Jane and Tracy are great too. I have a big love for Tracy and Tina from their SNL days so that's probably why this show is so fun to watch for me. Every time I see Tracy I think about Brian Fellow's Safari Planet, which was my favorite SNL sketch ever. Oprah was my definite favorite guest star from this season's TV shows.

i love Tina and I don't get it how she creates such BS show and people looove it. I find this comedy the least funny of hem all... no wait, Big Bang Theory is worse... But New Adventures of Old Christine is so much better... no idiot humuor.

This episode was great! I wish more people would get behind this show. They are missing out on some great writing. My favorite part had to be Tracy dressed as a white woman and of course the Oprah twist at the end. I totally died when Liz came out in a caped sweater with taffy and calypso music :rotf:
