Three Strikes... err... damn!

I've watched three eps now of the sitcom 30 Rock. 15 minutes into #3 I was ready to write it off as a failure.

Up to that point it had failed to make me laugh even once. The only thing that even kept me coming back was Alec Baldwin, whose comedy I've loved since he first appeared on Friends.

So I figured I'd give it a fair shot, watch three eps, and move on. But then at sixteen minutes into three, Baldwin's characters, explaining why he thought Tina Fey's character was gay, said it was her shoes.

"Those shoes are definitely bi-curious." He said.

The only laugh in three whole eps, but, as they say on the internets, it made me LOL.

Now I'm not sure what to do. I guess I'll give it one more ep. But I don't have a lot of hope. It's just not funny.
