Well what do you know, I missed my fix of 30 Rock more than I thought and as a result am now on to Season 4. So am I still as impressed? In a nutshell yes. The characters are now fully developed and with familiarity and comfort come more laughs. There are occasional duff episodes but they are few and far between and at only 22 minutes long (don’t you just love American ad break requirements) they are usually tightly scripted and edited. The word on the fan-sites is that series 4 is maybe not as strong as the first 3 but that series 5 is a big bounce back; so far I’ve not noticed any decline.
