Great Show, Okay DVD Posted by: from: on If you were surprised when you 30 Rock won the Emmy for best comedy, it's probably because you've never watched it. While the viewership is small, 30 Rock is a great show. It's some of the smartest comedy on TV today, with layers and layers of comedy. Since getting the DVDs, I've easily watched each episode at least 5 times, catching something new each time. The show is focused around the production of a comedy show, like SNL, but focuses almost entirely on the dynamics behind it. Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Tracy Morgan get top-billing, but everyone on the show is hilarious, and it has great depth. The DVD content is enjoyable. On the 3rd disk, there is some special content, including audio commentary, deleted scenes, and behind the scene footage. I do, however, have a complaint, touched on by the other reviewer. First, the episodes aren't divided into chapters. It would have been easy and very convenient to split them even at commercial breaks, but instead, there's some hunting involved in episodes. Also, instead of putting separate audio tracks on the episodes, all audio commentary is on the 3rd disk with its own video as well. All in all, it's absolutely worth it. If you're not into 30 Rock, you need to, and what better way then watching all of the first season.

Great show, decent dvd set Posted by: from: U.S. South on This is the best new show on TV as far as I'm concerned and the DVD set is pretty nice. There are a bunch of commentaries though unfortunately in most cases it's just one person doing the commenting. Next season I would prefer if they had 2 or 3 people per commentary, more interaction and discussion. The blooper reel is funny but I wish there were more deleted scenes. If I were to rate the DVD presentation I'd give it an A for picture, A+ for content, the actual shows, and a B for extras, they can do better in that regard.

I Enjoyed This Posted by: from: on I had never watched this show when it was on TV but got the Series One as a gift. I watched it in about 3 sittings. It was so funny. Frankly I was surprised. I'm not a Baldwin fan but I liked his character. I thought because of the SNL roots it might not be that good but I really got into the characters.

Love the series Posted by: from: fort lauderdale, fl on Great series! Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are hilarious, but Kenny(can't remember his real name) steals the show. Tracy Morgan, Dotcom, Jenna and the other dude are funny too.

Emmy Winning Show, DVD Needs Work Posted by: from: Peoria, IL on This is a review of the DVD release and not the show. The show itself is perfect. Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin fit so well into this show that it feels like you're watching a documentary on The Girlie Show and not a sitcom. Funny documentary, not snore documentary. It’s obvious why 30 Rock won the Emmy on its first year out. Having said that, the DVD release isn’t quite up to par for a show of this quality. On the plus side, the picture and sound quality are first rate. The picture is in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen just as it is broadcast. Sound is selectable between Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0, English only. Subtitles are available in English and Spanish. The episodes are split among three discs. Unfortunately, each episode is a whole chapter on the disc. Many other TV shows on DVD will at least split episodes into chapters at their original commercial breaks. If you skip ahead to a new chapter on 30 Rock, you're moving ahead to a new episode, not to a point later in the same episode. I don't know if that's a major factor to other TV series viewers, but it’s a sticking point with me. The bonus features are all on the third disc. There are 5 episodes with commentaries, but the episodes are all repeated on the third disc just for the commentary. This is very unusual. Instead of making the commentaries a separate selectable audio track on the episodes where they appear, they've duplicated the episodes there on the third disc with the commentary being the only audio track. The show audio is lowered in the background on the commentaries. Most of the commentaries consist of only one person, which makes for a lot of gaps. When there aren't multiple people on a commentary track, it can be dull just listening to one person say things like "this is actor x, he's really funny". Other bonus features include: deleted scenes from several episodes; "The Wrap Party" which is basically a gag reel but with a horrible voiceover; "An Evening with Kenneth" in which Kenneth the page does his own mini talk shows with cast of The Girlie Show; "Behind the Scenes" in which Judah Friedlander, Jack McBrayer and Lonny Ross show us around the sets and talk to cast and crew of 30 Rock; and "Makin' It Happen" which are three webisodes of the show Will Arnett's character created from the episode "Fireworks". The packaging is typical cardboard with glossy graphics on the outside. The graphics actually wrap around to the inside of the outer packaging. Overall, this is a DVD set worth owning. The show is worthy of multiple viewings. I mentioned are minimal considering the quality of the show itself.
