Since 30 Rock ends today, I thought I might name the 10 best episodes of the series.
I feel that 30 Rock lost its steam after season 3, but for me this remains one of the show’s strongest episodes. My favorite part still remains Alec Baldwin’s self-referential speech.
The first of the many Will Arnett appearances of the show remains the best. I’m a huge Arrested Development fan, and I was pleased to see him on. Plus, you can’t go wrong with Tracy’s planned Thomas Jefferson movie.
The encounter between Jack’s and Liz’s parents make this episode golden, plus it’s got Any Richter in it. What’s not to like?
7. The Funcooker
Just the title made me laugh out loud, which has a secret dirty meaning.
It’s a parody of Amadeus, plus it has Rip Torn.
5. Larry King
Tracy’s interview with Larry King always makes me laugh.
4. Gavin Volure
I’m a big fan of Steve Martin, and he’s great in this episode.
3. Tracy Does Conan
The best episode of the first season has everything done right. Conan O’Brien’s great, and his interview with Tracy is hilarious.
2. Apollo, Apollo
Just Kenneth’s daydreams of everyone as puppets make this episode appear on the list.
1. Rosemary’s Baby
Everything in Rosemary’s Baby is done perfectly, especially Jack’s imitation of Tracy’s dad.
