Shut It Down: A Goodbye to “30 Rock”
Six years ago I met Liz Lemon, a woman with brown hair, glasses, a love of sandwiches and a penchant for blazers.
This is our story.
The end of “30 Rock” is upon us and we will never see another comedy like this again. And that’s a good thing, if you ask me. My take on the end of the series and why it was so special.
In Liz Lemon, Tina Fey created a character that could appeal to pretty much every kind of audience and not just man/woman. Liz was overworked, looking for love, incredibly nerdy, sweet, lazy in some aspects, a lover of food and so much more. She made a sort of misfit into a hero and surrounded her by characters that redefined the word outrageous. Those characters, coupled with the comedy “30 Rock” threw at its viewers on a weekly basis, is why this show will be studied in TV and media courses in colleges.
