Are you trying to tell me you don't lake Jane Krakowski in 30 Rock. WHAT? Surely you jest?

Well that just goes to show how furiously I was typing. I'm getting tired of Tina Fey as an actress [Can you really call her that?] But 30 Rock does have its moments, many actually. Although the incongruity of the comedy often makes me remember Pushing Daisies for some reason...and I really miss Pushing Daisies.
