Could the finale of 30 Rock perhaps be the best finale of all time? Too early to tell?
Legitimately funny, in keeping with the run of the show, poignant, referential, creative, innovative, comprehensive.
I've seen finales that do things epically or emotionally, but I can't recall one that did so many things so well without missing a beat.
- I need Malcolm. You're too Martin. Know what they did to him, they killed him. . .
- Didn't they kill Malcolm too?
- No, no, no, they say that. But ain't nobody seen the body since the funeral.
- That's how funerals work.
