30 Rock Season 3 Episode 22: Kidney Now!

30 Rock has had an outstanding season, and tonight’s season finale was pretty great as well. Liz Lemon’s havok-wreaking streak of “Dealbreaker” pronouncements throughout the episode kept increasing in both hilarity and absurdity. As good as this was, it was totally topped by the Jack’s celebrity music ensemble to try to get a kidney for his long last father, played by Alan Alda. Here’s a link to the music number at E OnlineĀ if you missed the episode.

Here’s the full list of musicians who were part of the ensemble:

Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Cyndi Lauper, Michael McDonald, Clay Aiken, Mary J. Blige, Mike Diamond, Adam Horovitz, Adam Levine, Sara Bareilles, Steve Earle, Norah Jones, Talib Kweli, Wyclef Jean, Moby, Robert Randolph, Rachael Yamagata, and Rhett Miller.

Hell’s Kitchen Season 5 Finale

Well, I could have been more wrong about the outcome of Hell’s Kitchen, but not by much. My dark horse Colleen cracked under pressure and got axed just a handful of episodes in, and neither of my frontrunner picks even made the final three. On the bright side, Colleen’s cooking classes are booked solid.

Oh well, there’s always next season, which starts on Tuesday, July 21st.

Coraline Comes to Blu-ray on July 21st

A few months ago, I wrote about seeing Coraline in 3-D, and I must reiterate just how excellent it is now that the blu-ray release has been announced. This is landmark animation and by no means is it just for kids. I for one, will be pre-ordering this as soon as it’s available from Amazon.

Full details on the upcoming release are over at Hi-Def Digest.
