Yay!!! 30 Rock is back on UK television tonight with season 5 on Comedy Central – in HD no less!!! In case you hadn’t guessed, we love this quirky little comedy. I mean who wouldn’t find a guest appearance from Buzz Aldrin yelling at The Moon funny?
“I OWN YOU!!!”
“I WALKED ON YOUR FACE!!!”
Here’s our top glasses wearing characters from 30 Rock.
How great is Frank with his Gazelle Glasses? Played by Judah Friedlander Frank is one of the main writers of the TGS with Tracy Jordan – the show-within-a-show. Frank is never without his geeky Gazelle glasses, which are a bit of a throwback to the 1980’s and probably made famous by Run DMC ‘back in the day’. Frank still lives at home with his mum, he is childish and lazy and loves to play practical jokes on the other characters in the show; oh, and he wears a different trucker’s hat in every episode. We salute you Frank.
Creator of 30 Rock, Tina Fey plays Liz Lemon the head writer of TGS and has her hands pretty much full with trying to keep all her staff (like Frank) happy and preventing Tracy and Jenna – the lead actors of TGS from running amok! She doesn’t even have time to sort out her own awkward life which she somehow stumbles through each week (somewhat embarrassingly) as she searches for her dream man – Astronaut Mike Dexter – who she pretty much made up!
Liz Lemon (just like her real life counterpart Tina Fey) wears Cat Eye Style prescription glasses, which are actually not that different from the cliched “Sexy Librarian” look.
