The Best Days of My Flerm

One week later, I realize there are some 30 Rock characters I wouldn’t have minded seeing in the final season. In order from plain ol’ beloved to sorely missed:


Josh Girard


Phoebe of the Avian Bones


Avery Jessup


Liz’s terrible agent, Simon


Astronaut Mike Dexter, who appears in more episodes that you might think



Angie Jordan


D’Fwan


Diana Jessup


Any of the Jong Il clan as portrayed by Margaret Cho


Dr. Drew Baird


Jenna DeCarlo, a.k.a. the alternate universe Jenna Maroney and the role Rachel Dratch was supposed to play before my favorite show did something awful to her.

But good on the show for giving us one last moment of Kathy Geiss and no harm in skipping over Danny. And one remaining 30 Rock question: With the exception of Dennis, all of Liz’s boyfriends’ names are puns of one sort or another — Floyd DeBarber, Wesley Snipes, Carol Burnett, Criss Chross. But what joke is Jon Hamm’s character supposed to be making with the name Dr. Drew Baird? Is it just supposed to be Dr. Drew?

Finally this, still good, a full week later:



The complete lyrics to the “Rural Juror song are posted over at Vulture, by the way.
