30 Rock is incredible, as I've said here at least twice before. Also, Alec Baldwin is officially one of the great sitcom characters.
Tracy is also a genius creation.
Like the Conchords the whole thing is character-led and the situations are unforced. Much harder to achieve than people think. It's not just half an hour of witty bullshit about pop culture, it's got heart.
And at its centre, the complete woman: Tina Fey.
Word. The thin thread of absurdism running through the whole thing is my favourite part. Like the episode with Jack's family. Getting a bunch of Irish to get drunk and fight is funny in itself, but having them fight over how their name is pronounced is comedy gold.
