Hey dummies. In case you didn’t get the memo last week, “30 Rock” has now been an integral part of our lives for 10 years. Sure, Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s Emmy award-winning comedy went off the air a little over three years ago, but thanks to its regular presence on Netflix and universally applicable life lessons, “30 Rock” has yet to fade from relevancy.
To celebrate and honor its 10-year anniversary, IndieWire has come up with 10 reasons “30 Rock” remains one of TV’s most important series — and always will. Hear the details in this week’s Very Good TV Podcast, hosted by IndieWire TV Editor Liz Shannon Miller (Liz Lemon, if you will) and TV Critic Ben Travers (a Jack Donaghy if we’ve ever met one), or simply stare at 10 choice “30 Rock” .gifs collected in the gallery (above). They’re all reasons for greatness, you guys.
