I've been watching it.  I don't think there's been much to talk about - it's been a solid show since its return with nothing exceptional to note.

I'm off live TV.  I'll see it in 2-3 years when the season dvds are $15.  Meanwhile, I've been enjoying the hell out of season 2.

Heh.  I do the same thing.  Though I don't wait as long as you do.  I get the DVDs as soon as they come out.  I just finished watching season 4 a few days ago.

Still, if they're doing a live show, I think I'll watch it.

I regret it later if I do a first-day purchase. I almost always end up saving about 50% of the cost of the show if I just wait.
That's how I feel about all dvds I buy.  Just wait a year and you can usually get it for $5 (that includes shipping) in Amazon's used section.

As for the live ep(s), I'll prob be working Thurs night and will hafta watch 'em online the next day like I do every ep.  If I'm not working then tho, I'll prob find a way to see it.

^QFT.  Super well-executed.  And everything involving Rob Reiner, I loved.

Just watched the both East Coast and West Coast versions of the show.  If you only see one, I say watch the West Coast version.  It has a couple better rewritten lines and a couple minor, unplanned gaffs.  Also, there's this neat list of the 17 Differences between each version.  Pretty cool.

Did I like the ep?  It was much better the 2nd time once I fully understand what they were trying to do.  But the SNL atmosphere was very surreal and reminded me why 30 Rock (and most other sitcoms) work so well without a laugh track.  Took some getting used to, but, for the most part, I'd say enjoyable (esp for a couple surprises here and there).

Just finishing up 5th season (1 ep left)--and holy SHIT they got Condoleeza Rice to play herself as Jack's old flame!

And then all the Kim Jong Il stuff in this ep is so great.  They have to bring Avery back since she married Un.  And the little end-credits sequence with the glengarry/glen ross thing was brilliant.

God damn I love this show.

I just saw that episode and felt the same way. I LOVE the way they got rid of Avery. I thought it was very unique. I knew they had to get rid of her character because she is played by Elizabeth Banks and because Jack should remain single...but HOW they did it. Super awesome.

When Alec Baldwin called it "Rainstorm Katrina" (not sure what episode) I decided that was my favorite thing of ever. And as a woman, I adore Tina Fey


Now this show should be coming back soon because it is mid-seasonly replacing Community. This show is my 3rd favorite of right now

Alas, my downloading days are over, so I now have to either pony up the cash and buy eps on amazon or wait a year for it to be released to netflix. Sad.

Why is that? Is it the SOPA thing? Should I stop downloading?

Is bittorrent a specific site?

No.  It's basically a protocol used for peer to peer filesharing.  You run Bit Torrents through .torrent files that are downloaded with a Bit Torrent client.  It basically lets you download files from other peoples' computers bit by bit.  So instead of getting, say, all of Transformers from one website, you can bits and pieces from a lot of people.  Kind of like a torrent of data bits.

Is Hulu/NBC.com not an option for you?

So...wouldn't than mean avoiding all torrent downloads then. Because I don't want to pay a copyright fine or anything.

Is 30 Rock on Hulu? Oh man! What about Archer! I guess I can go to work and DVR the shows there. Then I can get paid to watch them!

If you are on a private tracker or use proper peer blocking bittorrent is less risky but yes, I won't be torrenting anything copyrighted in the future.

Have you considered IRC for downloading shows?
