NBC Thursdays: Watched on the WeekendPosted: 16 October 2011
I’ve been in New York for the past few days, so viewing NBC comedies when they aired was not a possibility. What was a possibility was seeing Book of Mormon. And it was awesome.
Also a possibility: my pilgrimage to the NBC Store at 30 Rock. I am now the proud owner of a “Troy and Abed in the Morning” coffee mug and an “All 5 Dances” t-shirt. I almost bought an “It’s all downhill from here, Paintball 2010” hoodie, but it was very, very expensive.
Though I may not have watched NBC comedies right away this week, I was lucky enough at a showing of Relatively Speaking to have NBC comedies come to me! Who should sit behind us but Jack Donaghy’s mom — well, the actress who plays her — Elaine Strtich! When she walked up, I thought to myself, I’m scared of this woman, and I’m not sure why. I then thought, what comedy have I seen her on? Eventually,we figured it out (meaning, my boyfriend’s mother leaned over and excitedly whispered that it was Elaine Stritch!) and I happily understood where my fear was coming from…Jack’s afraid of only one thing: his mother, Colleen (and liberalism taking over America). It was great to see a 30 Rock guest star…maybe one day I’ll meet Tina Fey.
Oh, and I did eventually watch all the NBC Comedies. Arguably the BEST EPISODE OF COMMUNITY EVER.
