Enjoyable, but a bit of a dip from Season 1
Verified purchase
Season 2 of '30 Rock' sees Tina Fey return as the likeable, witty, and acerbic Liz Lemon, which pretty much guarantees another helping of sarcastic witticisms, and comedic complaints. From telling Frank that he looks like "Gene Simmons had sex with a basset hound", getting into a fight with Tracy Jordan's sassy wife, and producing a hilarious rant at ex-Boyfriend Floyd, there are enough great Liz moments to pretty much make the show alone. Alec Baldwin remains on fine form as Jack Donaghy, staunch capitalist and producer of some of the show's most amusing moments; and his dynamic with both Liz, Tracy Jordan, and with his adoring, arguably homosexual assistant Jonathan (Maulik Pancholy), is as good, if not better than in the first season. Kenneth the Page gets more screentime, with his naivety proving hilarious, as do Tracy's level-headed entourage Grizz and Dot.Com; but despite the laugh quota being very high in places, this season may come as a minor disappointment to those following on from Season 1.

A few episodes don't really work. The season's opener, 'Seinfeld Vision', seems more of a cameo vehicle for Jerry Seinfeld, than a fitting season-opener, and episodes like 'Ludachristmas' and 'Milf Island' stretch certain, less developed characters to their limit, meaning these episodes seem a bit forced. There's little in the way of character development, too; which is a little disappointing, and means that whilst the episodes are entertaining, '30 Rock' seems a bit like it's drifting along, more than it's developing; with Jack's relationship with C.C. Cunningham, a democratic candidate, being a happy exception to this rule. For those who enjoyed the first season of '30 Rock', Season 2 is a worthwhile purchase, but do expect one or two misfires during the series. For those new to the show, I'd suggest beginning with 'Season 1', which both grounds the show, and provides some of its very best episodes.

a tv gem

i cant fault this show, every episode is littered with zany brilliance, its still annoying to me that I only started watching this show a wee ago and have already ordered season 3 on dvd but of course the show is now no more after 7 series.
Every moment is a gem, this has some great cameos but they don't deserve to stand beside our regular cast almost as they are just brilliantly crafter, created and realised, Baldwin for me is one of the coolest characters I have ever seen if I am honest.
This is a shorter series, 15 episodes I believe and I wanted more but that's always a great idea, cant wait to keep watching this show.

Excellent
Verified purchase
I enjoyed season 1, but this was fantastic. All the characters were stronger and the episodes packed in some good ideas.
Best:Rosemary's Baby where Alec just goes off the edge
Subway hero; fine guest spot from Tim Conway, the Bleeper king returns to reek havoc and Alec as Richard Nixon
episode 210-Just hilarious-go and watch it now!
MILF Island: some have critised it, but it was a tight funny episode
Cougers: Liz and Jenna hilariously become Cougers, Frank thinks he's gay and Alec does a poor man's bad news bears-probably my favourate episode so far.
Worst: SeinfeldVision-just a plug for the crap BEA movie, even though I'm a massive fan of him and his show.
Sandwich day: Floyd returns...and not enough happens-just didn't work for me
Overall, even these weakest episodes are hilarious and I'll watch them hundreds of times
Extras: the 3rd disc includes an hilarious stage version and table read. There is a q and a bit, but, despite all the cast being there, half of them say nothing. Also, there are no subtitles anywhere, again.
But what makes this is the commentarys. Saddly Alec is absent, and Will Arnets one is irritating, as is Fred Armisen's but deffinatly watch the one with Tina and her husband, Tina herself and the absolutly hilarious one with Jane and Jack-worth buying the set for alone-they have a really Jack and Karren from will and Grace chemistry.
Excellent entertainme

30 Rock Season 2
Verified purchase
I caught glimpses of this show on flights and wondered what the fuss was all about. Stuck on a plane from Australia in October, I watched an episode all they way through, then thought I would give the first seasons a try. I'm really glad I did. I'd heard a lot about Tina Fey and how she spoofed Palin, so that increased my curiosity.

It's a satire on corporate ownership of the media, really well embodied by Alec Baldwin. But it's also light comedy, well written and observed with endearing characters, Liz, Kenneth, Tracy, et al, which can also be off the wall. I think the one thing US comedy has over British comedy is the duration of the programme. Twenty minutes is enough! Half an hour can seem like over-egging it. Without adverts you can watch an episode or two without being too inconvenienced. Bring on season 3!

Proper Laugh out loud
Verified purchase
I am a cynical middle aged carmudgeon for whom the joy has gone out of the world. TV series like friends and Gavin and Stacy mean little to me and the last time I had a proper belly laugh was when Howard Moon took his shirt off after boxing a kangaroo.
But lo! What's this I spy? Didn't she used to do a cracking Sarah Palin impression?

30 Rock.... This people is where it's at. Consistantly well written, real humour. Don't get me wrong it's not trying to be a soap opera with developing story threads (least not in a big way) what it does is skirt the hard realities to bring a kind of alternate view. Similar to how Father Ted was set in a universe inhabited mostly by priests.
Satirical, self mocking and at times surreal. Just look at the reviews for episode "Rosemarys Baby" :-)

Brilliant show!
Verified purchase
Anyone who hasn't watched this show is missing out! It amazes me that a show such as friends - which was nice enough, but really not particularly funny! - was a huge hit, and this is shoved away in rubbish time slots where nobody in the UK sees it!

I've bought the 1st and 2nd series on dvd and I'm eagerly awaiting the third series - I'm already watching S4, which has just started in the U.S.; so come on Amazon - I want my S3 dvd!!!

Alex Baldwin is absolutely the star of the show - he is brilliant, and completely hilarious - a lot of the funniest moments on the show are down to his delivery! And all credit to Tina Fey for creating and writing this show - it truly is great entertainment!

We loved season 1. Season 2 is a little less funny, but still entertaining - nice short shows that bring a smile to your face - good to watch after a long day in the office. Alec Baldwin is surprisingly brilliant, and the character of Kenneth really comes to life in this season - I can't help but smile every time he appears.

second season (well 1/2 season, damn writers!!) review
Verified purchase
Having caught the odd episode of 30 rock on tv i took a leap of faith and bought the season 1 dvd. Roughly 1 week later, having watched at times 5 or 6 episodes a day, i was hooked and back on amazon ordering season 2. season 2 carries on the brilliant humour of the first season and sees the characters develop further. Jack's relationship with a liberal congresswoman is brilliant (lookout for the coming out to the nbc people scene!!!), liz continues to crash through life (meets her idol, guest star carrie fisher;thinks her neighbour is a terrorist; has to deal with dennis again!!), tracy gets crazier and jenna gets fat! One thing, and this may just be me but i thought the show had a different sound than the first particularly liz and jack. This is a minor quibble and is quickly forgotten. The show being aired in 2007-08, the season is just 15 episodes compared to the usual 22 ish and as a result the end feels a little rushed. All in all the season builds on the first and continues to make me laugh. By the time the season ends with the big cliffhanger i had already pre ordered season 3. I definitely recommend this dvd to anyone who wants laughter, entertainment, drama and a bit of wit in their tv shows.
