30 Rock S01E21 – Hiatus

27 04 2007

Well I watched it this morning just like I said I would, and I have to say it was a little disappointing. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but I will say I don’t think they made the best use of 22 minutes of story time. The ep felt very rushed, and there was no flow to it, even from the opening seconds. the opening scene is normally just that, a scene. But I felt that in this ep there were four or five sketches cobbled together. As a result of the rushed nature of the episode, I don’t think any of the storylines were tied up adequately. Don’t get me wrong, there were enough jokes in it to make me chuckle, but as a season finale it was a bit lacklustre. If this is the exit of Alec Baldwin, it could have been a whole lot better. The ep also made me realise just how different the show has become towards the end of the year. The gawky looking guy had his first lines in weeks, and we kind of saw the writers room for a few seconds, when at one point that was the focal point of the show.  These are all minor gripes, and I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed season one of this wonderful comedy. If you missed it, it’s worth buying on DVD when it comes out, which will be in the next few months I’m sure.
