I won't waste your time telling you about the plot, or that it is critically-acclaimed, or that Alec Baldwin is in it. Amazon.co.uk have already done this. What I will do is give you a few - of many, many - reasons why I love 30 Rock so much.

I love comedy, and I particularly love American television comedies. But I am very picky and don't watch a series unless I really like it.

This show has the intelligence and subtlety of 'Frasier', the subversiveness of 'Sarah Silverman', the sheer random quirky cut-aways of 'Scrubs', and the non-stop pace of 'Family Guy'. But don't think this is just a pick 'n' mix; it is blended into a quality comedy that could be the new 'Friends' - in popularity, not style.

The writing is brilliant: the humour is always on the money, and at times laugh-out-loud-and-rewind funny.
The whole acting industry (including both 30 Rock and its actors) are sent up with spot-on paradies and in-jokes. There are threads of humour that span a full episode or a full season, but also stand-alone sequences lasting a mere 3 or 4 seconds (You Tube will provide you with these).
The show also manages to seamlessly blend, as opposed to clumsily 'insert', hints of genuinely touching, believable emotion.

The characters are not what you'd call 'realistic' in the sense of, say, 'The Office' characters, but within the context of the programme (call it a heightened reality if you like) they are generally rounded and believable. I must add that each and every one is played to perfection; kudos to the casting team.

Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are clearly the stars, but the performances put in by the 'supporting' cast are anything but. You feel like the show could allocate major screen time to any of the cast and deliver.

Very funny, no doubt.
Although, it's a kind pity that not all the episodes have English subtitles.
Unfortunately,I'm not a native English speaker.

I caught a few episodes on tv then it seemed to disappear so it's good to get the whole season on dvd. I tried buying it in my local Borders but their packs were faulty with 2 disc 3's and no disc 2.

Boy was I glad to receive mine through Amazon and find out it had the correct discs.

This show is amazing, I don't know how Tina Fey does all she does but I'm glad she does it. This woman has an amazing brain and a spot on sense of humour that translates well to UK humour.

If you want escapism and a laugh then buy this boxed set.

One of the funniest series currently about, which again is overlooked by UK tv. Not quite on a par with Arrested Development (criminally neglected by UK stations) but more accessible (more character development investment in Arrested Dev before it really sucks you in). Everyone seems to talk about Alec Balwin, and he is excellent in this, but it really is an ensemble piece. Consistently funny - and I can't say that about too many shows at the moment. Waiting for season 2 to come out in UK. Bargain price at Amazon for stacks of episodes.

Channel surfing late one night, we came across 30Rock on TV and watched three-quarters of one episode. We couldn't believe this wasn't on prime-time TV on a major channel and apart from that one episode I've never seen it shown on TV since.

Although totally different to 'The Office' it's along the same lines. The humour is sometimes laugh out loud, but often it's cringingly funny. There is no one 'star' - although my family all have their own favourites - but rather all the cast play roles which contribute to the overall program.

This set is excellent value: each episode is around 25 minutes and there are 21 episodes. Great comedy which deserves to have as much recognition as the likes of Frasier and Friends.

One of the best US comedy dramas I've seen. Sharp, witty and with the right amount of pathos. Alec Baldwin is the real star and his comic timing is brilliant. No lame episodes either. Pity there aren't any extras though, like behind the scenes or making of.

I was a big fan of Arrested Development and have become a HUGE fan of 30 Rock. The funnies range from the obvious set ups to sharp witted barbs you didn't see coming with quality acting and excellent writing.

This is a great example of the type of ensemble comedy series that the Americans do so well. A great central cast, quirky storylines and entertaining guest appearances make this a must watch.
Would recommend this on a par with Scrubs, How I met Your Mother and Arrested Development.
