When you’re using porn, or hiring an escort, or watching a stripper, how can you actually know which girl you’re getting? Do the girls wear labels that say “Need the cash for my heroin addiction” or “Quit my career in finance to do this instead”? Do the pornographers provide mini bios of the stars? No, they don’t. You have no idea who you’re getting, Sure, you might be lucky once or twice and rent a video featuring a grad-school dropout, or score a lapdance from the ex-teacher who decided to try a second career as a stripper just for kicks. But we estimate that the majority of the time, you will be watching rape and incest survivors on the screen and stage. And if you’ve ever enjoyed a Traci Lords or Jenna Jameson video, you already have.
30 Rock even has funny credits. An episode ends and, occasionally, we are treated to an extra joke at the expense of Executive Producer Lorne Michaels. These just another testament to how great 30 Rock is.
