If last night’s finale of 30 Rock left you feeling a little bit unsatisfied, get used to it: the show has now been cemented in history with a Ben & Jerry’s flavor that was unveiled during the last episode, and let’s just say that it’s not Americone Dream. It’s no Late Night Snack, either. It’s not even Cherry Garcia, that ol’ pun.
You want to know what you’ll be eating through your tears during a marathon session of whatever NBC is playing on Thursday nights now? (We believe it’s that new show, “Man With Face in His Hands,” correct?)
You know what? We’ll admit it: Out of all the characters on 30 Rock, we don’t identify as the workaholic, grumpy, frumpy-but-really-attractive Liz Lemon. We have to do us, and we’re Jenna Maroney fans through and through. Whether discussing her dalliances with Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts or having a surprise wedding with her transvestite boyfriend at her bosses’ funeral, we identify with Jenna’s self-aggrandizing, attention-seeking fame-baller. She’s almost an innocent: Her lack of self-awareness and child-like belief in the power of celebrity makes us want to go look in a mirror and sing “All By Myself.”
