I am in love with this show and thank God for Tevo so I can catch up on missed episodes. My night life aka binge drinking and tv watching has been severely effected by my pesky stand up comedy career. So I miss it once in a while, but when I get to see it again it's like finding a long lost friend on Facebook that got fat and looks REALLY old and now you are better than them because you are happy and thin and young looking without a gaggle of kids following you around sucking out your life force and draining all your monetary gains.
I can't say I have a favorite character on the show, because the writing is so sharp, quick witted, and smart for the entire cast it makes you fall in love with them all. I do admire Tina Fey for poking fun at herself with a character that I am sure is more than loosely based on her real persona. She's also able to do it with an objective critique for herself and of all the egos in the entertainment industry. The feel of the show does have a frenetic rhythm which I imagine is true to the environment of writing for a late night sketch show with that quick of a turnaround. The flashbacks and cut aways are not abused like they are on shows like 'Family Guy'
After watching 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee', Jerry Seinfeld's show on Crackle, I saw Alec Baldwin's episode. It renewed my respect for his profound intelligence, acting ability both humorous and dramatic, and impressive humility.
Now a list of some of my favorite quote from Tracy Morgan's character on the show, Tracy Jordan
"I believe vampires are excellent golfers, but no one will ever know."
"I'm doing God's work here in Africa, just yesterday I kicked two naked people out of a garden"
"I love this cornbread so much, I wanna take it behind a middle school and get it pregnant."
"What is this, Horseville? Because I’m surrounded by naysayers. Wordplay!"
"Why don’t Catholics eat meat on Fridays? I’ll tell you why: It’s because the Pope owns Long John Silver’s."
"I want to hold a mirror up to society and then win world record for biggest mirror."
