 "30 Rock" has already won numerous awards such as Primetime Emmys, SAG awards, Peabody Awards, and Golden Globes. They just released their 6th season on DVD in preparation for their final 7th season, which will air this September on NBC. "30 Rock" is a comedic show about Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), who is constantly trying to balance her personal life and her profession, which is the head writer for her own TV show. The problem is, her perfect boss , Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin), her TV Stars, Tracy (Tracy Morgan) & Jenna (Jane Krakowski), and her outcast crew of writers keep causing trouble for everyone. This Season 6 DVD pack includes all 22 episodes and loads of extras such as audio commentary, deleted scenes, behind-the-scene featurettes, and some sing-alongs.

Being a fan of the show, I had already seen all of the episodes, but I did not mind watching them all over again. This show is just that good.

After 6 seasons, you would expect a show to get repetitive or show signs of slowing down, but that isn't the case with "30 Rock." The show is still full of witty and raunchy humor and it is still felt as fresh and unpredictable as its first season. The only differences are the new cast members that were added, more guest cameos, and major changes in the lives of the main characters. It felt like they were holding nothing back and giving it their all this season and it paid off. I can honestly say this is one of the few shows I don't mind watching episode reruns over and over again without getting tired of the show.

I'll give out some hints about what happens this season, but not too many details because I do want everyone to check out Season 6 of "30 Rock." One character finds a new love, while another character searches for another job, and lastly a another character is on a sexual holiday from their partner. Who is doing what? You are going to have to watch the show to find out. I know these circumstance seems a bit odd and awkward for a show that seems so plain on paper, but that's the magical thing of "30 Rock." The show's comedy, writing, and acting take it to a whole new level. 

My favorite character on the show is the one and only Liz Lemon (Tiny Fey). She is so awkward, with her many quirks, and is so funny to watch. Things hardly ever go right for Liz, but I am always cheering for her. Some of my favorite and most memorable episodes from this season include "Leap Day," "Meet the Woggels," and "Murphy Brown lied to Us.". However, the rest of the episodes are just as good and funny as my favorites. 

If you enjoy a good comedic show with witty humor and likable characters, then any season of "30 Rock" is perfect for you. I highly recommend checking out any or all of the episodes from any of the seasons. "30 Rock" is a great show and I think you should check it out. For those reasons, I am giving this DVD an "A+."
