^ I heard about that as well.

By the way!

In town to cover New York Fashion Week for E!, Ryan Lochte attended a Four Seasons fête for Brian Atwood last night, where The Cut caught up with our favorite poetically minded Olympian. Asked "which shows" he would be attending, a bright-eyed Lochte rattled off a list of upcoming TV show appearances: "I know I have the cameo for 30 Rock in the morning, and after that, E! And then Live With Kelly. So I’m all over the place."
We also asked Lochte about his E! fashion-reporting gig and offered to help him practice.

Cut: Can we talk about your reporting for E? Have they trained you in how to cover fashion?
Lochte: [Shakes head no.] I mean, I’m sure I’m going to talk with them tomorrow when I meet with them and everything, and they’ll give me who I’m interviewing and what I’m going to say and stuff like that, so they’ll help me out a lot. I’m gonna be the one interviewing people, which is going to be totally weird. It’s going to be a different role, so I’m definitely gonna — it’s gonna be totally different. Usually I’m the one answering questions, not giving ‘em out, so …
Cut: So are you paying attention to how everyone asks you questions now, to see what works?
Lochte: Kind of.
Cut: Are you studying this interview while I’m doing it?
Lochte: In the back of my mind, I’m taking a mental note of this.
Cut: Do you want to interview me? You can practice right now.
Lochte: I ain't ready yet.

^ sweet! I secretly love him. I'm counting down to the new season, a month to go! I'll probably rewatch all the old seasons before.

Yesterday my friend and I were talking about Ryan Lochte's guest appearance on the show- we were joking that his cameo ought to be a little like James Franco's- how Liz was sleeping with him. We were like Liz Lemon can live out half of America's fantasies. It would be hilarious if Liz Lemon manages to sleep with quite a few celebrities. For all of her quirks she still has tons of charm. And I always like to joke that my spirit animals are Liz Lemon and Leslie Knope- they are a bit different from each other but both are a bit crazy yet totally awesome!

^ Yes! I love James Franco's cameo, his character was perfect, it really suited James. She does have a lot of charm. I read a few spoilers of the upcoming season: Jenna gets married! & there is a hint that Liz may finally have the child she has always wanted. A producer tweeted a picture of Liz holding a baby.

Well I thought her marriage was pretty funny... Here's a review, which to me, nails it!

Quote:
Quick spoilers for last night’s 30 Rock below:
“It’s OK to be a human woman!” “No it’s not! Because of society!”

For much of its seven-season, joke-intense run, 30 Rock has been both a very innovative sitcom and a very traditional one. It’s a show with a lot of ideas popping—closer to an animated show than most live-action sitcoms—but it’s also usually been resolutely sitcom-like in returning to the status quo. If a character changed jobs, they’d probably return; if Liz or Jack had a big relationship it would end. Strangely, the “character” that probably changed most over the years was NBC, through its peregrinations in corporate ownership.

That’s a bit oversimplified, though. Liz Lemon has grown over the seasons, even if her circumstances have stayed the same—she’s become more confident, more willing to own her success. But one thing that’s making the show’s final run so enjoyable so far is that, maybe because the end is in sight, it’s been willing to make big moves–in this case Liz’s wedding.

What powers the episode is Liz’s ambivalence about admitting that the wedding is a big deal. A show like The Mindy Project, a half-generation further removed in its feminism, is comfortable enough sending up and inhabiting the idea of romantic comedies at the same time—and, of course, a romantic comedy is typically a giant arrow pointing straight at a wedding. Liz’s ongoing conflict in 30 Rock has been finding a path between the notion that she has to be obsessed with getting married and the notion that she has to not care at all about getting married.

“Mazel Tov, Dummies!” resolved this dilemma both on a character level and a meta level. Liz as a character found a way to be the kind of “princess” a committed nerd like herself wants to be—Princess Leia—in the process finding a way to get married as a specific woman, rather than as one or another concept of Womanhood. What made the episode really work was that, without getting sappy or showy about it, it managed to work in the rich history that 30 Rock has built over time, and thus Liz’s history as a person. There was Saul Rosenbear (“He never got to spend enough time in his garden before he passed”); Dennis (now proud adopted dad to Black Dennis); and, of course, the Leia costume, which is now much more than a way to get out of jury duty. Above all, Liz’s conflict over the wedding was a good a distillation of any of how brilliantly Tina Fey has been able to both embody her feminism by being willing to laugh about it.

For the series, the episode struck a balance between replaying a romantic cliché and rejecting romance just to make a statement. Just as Liz came to accept that her wedding could be a very important day without being the most important day, “Mazel Tov, Dummies!,” by putting the wedding mid-season, made it an important step in Liz’s life without being the be-all and end-all of her story. It was a special episode without being a Very Special Episode.

And that’s what the Force is about, after all: balance.

^Fantastic review, thanks for sharing it with us NPJ! I think the way Liz got married seemed very fitting, I could never imagine her having a fancy wedding with a ball-gown. It's so not her. And my favorite line from the episode was, “It’s OK to be a human woman!” “No it’s not! Because of society!” It really resonated with me.
