DVD: 30 Rock: Season 1, (Universal)
Sunday 04 January 2009
There's more to Tina Fey than note-perfect Sarah Palin impersonations.
When she's not lampooning wannabe vice presidents on 'Saturday Night Live', Fey writes and stars in '30 Rock', a sparkling sitcom which is set behind the scenes of an 'SNL'-alike sketch show.
Out of an assortment of oddball supporting characters, the best is Alec Baldwin's tyrannical yet vulnerable, possibly insane network chief. The fact that Fey may have saved us from a McCain-Palin administration is a bonus.
