Like Curb your Enthusiasm, but with a heart
on 21 April 2010
I`ve been into 30 Rock for a few months now, going the Comedy Central route (shame on me for taking so long, I know). My wife and I dismissed it at first when watching trailers, but soon enough realised that the trailers were significantly more amusing than the shows we had tuned in to watch! I`ve always been a big fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm but I don`t think this should be compared exactly to Larry David`s monster. The main thing to differentiate them is that this is, at heart, a warm show. Kudos to you, Tina Fey. There might be some swearing and adult themes but the characters are very easy to like and to laugh with. Tracy Morgan is hysterically funny, Liz Lemon`s (Tina Fey) frustration with her colleagues and life very easy to relate to, Alec Baldwin deserves every accolade he receives as Jack - he is constantly scene-stealing - and the supporting cast are all strong too and I love it; it`s funny and it`s essentially kind-hearted.
