The end is near and so 30 Rock faces the final curtain . . .
Let's put it this way, me and 30 Rock, we go way back, like spinal chords and car seats.
Back in 2007, I stayed up til 11pm to watch this new TV show in Channel 5 of all channels. I had spotted the mention of this show in a very small insert in Radio Times. I was intrigued, especially as it was written by the same woman who wrote Mean Girls.
This is what else I saw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRvx38iBxlI
Watched the first episode. It was love at first laugh. That first laugh being that Alec Baldwin was in the show and was introduced by knocking a wall down. This was soon to be known as 'Jack Attack'.
I went to college the next day asking everyone, 'did you see this awesome show on last night?' and from every angle it was 'what are you talking about?'. Alas I had to enjoy this genius show on my own. But then the DVD was released and I finally could share the show with my friends. They were hooked.
Tina Fey became my idol and every time I talked about her I had to tell people 'she wrote Mean Girls' and then they knew who I meant. One of my new years resolutions is 'to be more like Tina' but of course I am waaaay off that goal.
I took 30 Rock to Uni with me, couldn't leave home without it. And like a drug I got some of my friends at Uni hooked on it! The 30 Rock love spread. Everyone was quoting it, talking about it, posting about it, it was amazing.
I still need to dress up as Liz Lemon as The Joker. The Batman rif episode was one of the best, not yo mention the reality show within a show, Queen of Jordon, the one reality show that I approve of and wish they had made more. Priceless wine throwing all round.

I couldn't believe it when they announced that season 7 would be its last and not even a complete one. There had been so many false ends where Alec Baldwin said he was leaving but didn't then when it was going to end he campaigned for at least a full last season. Alas, its time to say farewell to the amazing, award winning, ham demanding genius comedy that is 30 Rock.
For the last time everyone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20FAAZnKFH4
'I'm a star! I'm on top! Somebody bring me some haaaaaaaaaam!'
To celebrate there should be a party, in my case cheap drinks somewhere but us fans all know that there ain't no party like a Liz Lemon party coz a Liz Lemon party is mandatory!
