1) It’s my favorite show, but the first time I watched it in high school, I went through the episodes quickly, so there are some things I don’t remember well. When I do rewatch episodes, I have no order about it, just randomly picking ones I like. I wanted to do it in order.

2) Since I want to work in TV and I think this sitcom is the gold standard, I want to record any of the good insights I have about the episodes.

3) At the same time, I know myself well enough to not make the rules too structured by limiting what I can talk about. So, umm, things might not always be so insightful.

4) More people need to love “30 Rock” so they can get my references.

5) Because Meat Cat told me to.

6) Every white girl thinks she’s Liz Lemon

This project was partially inspired by:

99 Days at Tombs – wherein I and about 100 other Georgetown seniors went to one bar every day for the last 99 days of our college careers. The tradition began with the class of 1999.

40 Days of Dating – wherein these two people dated for 40 days as a social experiment

Lawrence and Julie and Julia – wherein Lawrence watched “Julie and Julia” every day for a year

Tomorrow, it begins.


Watch one episode of “30 Rock” every day for 138 days in a row. Write a blog post every day* about the episode. The posts can be about anything related to the episode, including but not limited to:

1) Why this show is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time

2) What I ate while watching the episode

3) Bizarre anecdotes I remembered while watching

4) The best Jenna-isms

5) An in-depth analysis of specific jokes

6) The ways in which I imagine myself EGOT-ing

7) Scientific rankings of Liz’s love interests by attractiveness

If a day is skipped, some sort of punishment will be decided. Methodology TBD.

Thanks for following along.

*A day is defined as the time between when I wake up and when I go to sleep, approximately 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. EST. For example, a post at 3 a.m. on July 12th would count for July 11th.
