In the time after sitcom behemoths like 'Seinfeld' and 'Friends', '30 Rock' pushed forward in a new direction that was more closer to zany, cartoon levels of comedy. It regularly featured cutaway jokes, it was meta before meta was a real thing, it gave people like Donald Glover their first jobs in TV, and it was endlessly quotable, and it was outrageously funny.
More than that, '30 Rock' is one of those shows that hasn't aged terribly, and if this trailer for the reunion episode is anything to go by, it could easily go another five seasons with ease. Everyone's still at their best, including Alec Baldwin now fully salt-and-peppered as Jack Donaghy, Tracy Jordan in full flow, not to mention Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer and, of course, Tina Fey herself.
The episode airs on NBC next Thursday and goes on to Peacock, NBC's streaming platform the next day, so don't expect to see this (by legal means, anyway) available over here any time soon.
Here's the trailer.
