    Here's what you do when you see an "ugly" person.
    First, understand that someone is probably in love with them. So I try and see what the person that loves them sees- I look for the feature that I think the lover loves most.
    Helberg has beautiful eyes- just very, very nice.

    Try it in a mall or somewhere sometime- there is something attractive about everyone. You just have to be able to see it. Some people take more looking, that's all.

    That's exactly me as well. Never have seen what the attraction is for 30 rock. And I also hate Morgan...

    I agree on both counts. Who was his character in Studio 60?

    Well I'm guilty of not doing this but I also acknowledge that with my odd taste in men, that I'm sure others are the same. So although I get confused as to why some people are found attractive (see Tom Cruise, Ryan Gosling and various other 'heart throbs') I don't judge others that do. I just someones feel the need to verbalize my thoughts on the matter because I'm an opinionated person. :D

    He played Alex Dwyer, one of the lesser characters that filled out the Studio 60 show within a show. He didn't get a lot of screen time outside the show within a show, if I recall.

    Here's a clip of him doing "The Nicolas Cage Show" parody in the fictional Studio 60 SNL-like show.

    There are two sides to 30 Rock. I also can't stand *anything* with the Jenna or Tracey Jordon characters. I've started FF through those parts, because most of the time, they are in the same scenese together. OTOH, the scenes with Tiny Fey and Alec Baldwin are really brilliant. I watch those two or three times to get all the tiny, quick lines they say.

    That's great -- they should recycle that on BBT sometime.

    I agree, but I'm ok with Tracy and Jenna in small doses. The problem with 30 Rock is that they are out of ideas. They rehash the same themes over and over and it's getting old.

    I liked Studio 60, but like a lot of shows of it's ilk, it was TOO inside, so it didn't appeal to the masses and thus doomed to failure. But I thought it was very well written and I like the characters a lot.

    Well, with Liz maybe having a plant next season, that's new.
    And Jack and Avery breaking up.
    Jack dating Avery's mother. Kenneth needs to kick Whatsername out and be the paige again.

    by request I spoilerized what is actually a spoiler. The rest is just my guess at what's new next season.

    Better than getting a lousy tshirt

    You're right, we should go back to discussing the hotness of Simon Helberg :confused:

    Someone on the radio today for no apparent reason suggested that they wanted to see a mixture of Mick Jagger and Sheldon Cooper. My head exploded at that point.

    It's ridiculous, right?

    I don't know what it is about some fans of 30 Rock, that no one can mention Studio 60 without someone chiming in that 30 Rock is still on the air while Studio 60 crashed and burned, or that 30 Rock is the better comedy (not surprising, since despite what imdb says, Studio 60 was no more a comedy than The West Wing was). [And NO, 30 Rock fans, I don't need to hear you say AGAIN that both shows were about a comedy sketch show and that the show-within wasn't funny. We've heard you already, like a bazillion times.] The whole thing is demented. If, every time people mentioned Life on Mars, someone came along and posted "but Castle is better" just because both shows involve a police department and are set in NYC, people would see how lame that was, but since it's apparently okay to crap on any mention of Aaron Sorkin, people don't see the absurdity.

    To get back on topic: thumbs up to Simon Helberg for his fine work on both BBT and Studio 60.

    It doesn't always show to its best advantage on BBT, but he has a nice voice, too.

    I guess the thing with 30 and 60 is they had the same premise AND they premiered within a few days of each other and were on the same network. So the comparisons are a natural consequence.

    But you're right, it's old news. I guess there's still a lot of Sorkin groupies out there :)

    I hope you're not talking about what I said and you're just ranting... because I am a *huge* Sorkin fan, and would have chosen 60 over 30 any day. But I'm also a Tiny Fey fan, and that's what we're left with. What I actually said was that Studio 60 was better TV, and that 30 Rock was better Comedy. That *wasn't* a comparison.

    You should really go back and spoilerize that so these major plot points aren't spoiled for anybody else.
