Old man gay orgy jokes, NBC show parodies, obscure pop culture references (Dharma Initiative ice cream), snakes being warmed in ovens, and someone going all Exorcist-y over there being no cake at a wedding. All that can only mean one thing: the return of 30 Rock. And for me to write I’m going to use 10 GIFs, but end up with 12.
Find out about GIFs, after the jump.
- 30 Rock: It’s so good to have 30 Rock back, especially with the sadness of this being the final season making me admire each joke that much more. The seemingly season-long arc of burning NBC to the ground and starting anew is great, though, honestly, I’d watch Mandela (with Joe Rogan), God Cop, and Tank It before giving Chicago Fire a shot. I would also watch 22 minutes of Tina Fey making “lemon party” jokes every week.
- Up All Night: It was the best episode of the season, though that’s a bit like saying No Lookin’ Back is the Michael McDonald album that sucks the least. RACHEL DRATCH APPEARANCE ALERT.
- The Office: Come for the Erin speaking Dothraki (helpful translation PDF here), stay for the Jim and Pam athkemar drama, easily the most compelling part of “Andy’s Ancestry.” “I still can’t believe he didn’t tell me.” Oof.
- Parks and Recreation: Benji’s full Cool Times Summer Jamz mix can be found here. Blind Melon, Boyz II Men, and Ace of Base are fantastic, predictable picks, but “Til I Hear It From You” by the Gin Blossoms is truly inspired.
