Read Our ’30 Rock’ Series Finale Review HERE

Just like Jenna Maroney’s “relationship” with Mickey Rourke, it’s over. The series finale of 30 Rock has come and gone, and it was a bittersweet and hilarious farewell to one of the best comedies (in the opinion of this writer) to hit TV in the past 20 years. Tina Fey brought her signature comic flare to NBC with a parody gun pointed straight at Saturday Night Live, but it was all in good fun while it lasted.

Over the years there have been many a great moment with the likes of Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowsi, Jack McBrayer, Judah Friedlander, Scott Adsit and of course, Alec Baldwin, who oversaw the rest of the ragtag team of The Girlie Show (Shut up, Lutz). Plus there have been amazing guest stars like Will Arnett, Chloe Moretz, David Schwimmer, Al Gore, Andy Richter, Elizabeth Banks, Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi, Elaine Strich, Julianne Moore, Donald Glover and countless more.

And let’s not forget Liz Lemon’s long line of gentlemen callers like Matt Damon, Jason Sudeikis, Jon Hamm, Michael Sheen and lastly, James Marsden. It’s been a great wild ride seeing the crazy antics unfold at breakneck speed, often times with jokes flying by every few seconds. But tonight, the series came to a satisfying, funny and heartfelt finale, complete with an ending that only the meta writers of 30 Rock could come up with. Thankfully, this writer found the homage ending to be much more satisfying than the one it was parodying.

For more of my take on the series finale of 30 Rock, read my full review here. But we’d like to hear what the rest of you fans thought. So, without further adieu…

  1. Loved this finale, Could of gone with out the Conan O’Brien green screen thing

    • The Conan scene was just horrible but overall loved the finale

    • I can’t remember the last time I disagreed with a comment more than I do with your’s…

    • There is no way you’re a real human.

  2. I thought it was wonderful, very fitting and satisfying, glad they all got to say goodbye in the show as well. Still kinda bummed, but at least I’ll have the Blu-rays to reminiscence with.

  3. I was bored.

  4. After watching every week for years, it finally dawned on me last year, that 30 Rock just isn’t funny and it’s not even that entertaining. Especially when compared to something as brilliant as Community. But I watched the finale for the hell of it, and it was dull and flat with that supposedly “smart” dialogue. Tracy Morgan was funny on SNL, but from episode 1 he’s been the most annoying part of 30 Rock. The only thing funny about Tracy Jordan are the fake movie posters on the walls of his dressing room.

    • If it took you seven years to realize that you don’t find 30 Rock funny, then you’re watching television wrong on a variety of different levels.

  5. I’m genuinely going to miss this show.
    Most shows have their ups and downs but IMO 30 Rock was consistently funny from the pilot to last nights finale. Along with Arrested Development I think 30 Rock was the funniest show of the past 15yrs. Each episode was worthy of 2nd and 3rd viewings because the comedy was so layered throughout that you would often miss one joke because you were laughing at another.
    I hope Tina Fey doesn’t stay away from TV for to long because I really think she belongs in the same conversation as Mary Tyler Moore and Lucille Ball when you talk about the funniest woman in TV history.

  6. The show was original and written much differently than any other show out there – so you can’t really compare it to anything else.
    The final season was great. Liz got her family.
    I was seriously confused, though. ahaha. I must be super slow because when I saw the final scene, I thought “what the…so was the whole show just this woman telling these stories to kenneth and it wasn’t actually reality?!” I seriously thought that’s how it ended. So I was confused and felt weird about it, but then I read online it was supposed to be LIZ’s great-granddaughter. Again…I’m slow. :)
