cultural commentary

[Brian Lynch via NYMag via Movieline, 6/8/09]

"How are your minds today? Are they good? Not blown, you say? Do you like them that way? Then my sincerest apologies for THIS...

Tina Fey's 30 ROCK is currently the most acclaimed comedy series on television. It's won numerous Emmys and Golden Globes and I think Pulitzers. Critics and audiences alike love the show and its lovable zany characters, and consider it one of the most original comedies in years.

And I guess it is original...if you've never seen THE MUPPET SHOW. Because, my "friends" (in quotes because I don't know or trust you, please don't be offended), Tina Fey's 30 ROCK is quite obviously ripping off Jim Henson's beloved TV show."

(you should read the whole thing; very convincing!)
