The top-notch ensemble cast also features Alec Baldwin as pompous network executive Jack Donaghy, Tracy Morgan and Jane Krakowski as the pampered stars of "TGS," and Jack McBrayer as a relentlessly upbeat NBC page.

Summary of Season 1 (2006) - 3 discs

Tina Fey stars as Liz Lemon, the lead writer on a television variety series à la "Saturday Night Live," in this Emmy-winning workplace sitcom co-starring Jane Krakowski, Tracy Morgan and the scene-stealing Alec Baldwin. When brash network executive Jack Donaghy (Baldwin) arrives on the scene to pep up the show, he unnerves the cast and crew with his meddlesome ways -- among them, hiring a whacked-out movie star (Morgan).

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sitcom from former Saturday Night Live head writer Tina Fey garners some of its laughs with sexual innuendo and racial stereotypes, but it's the strained working relationships among distinctly different personalities that adult viewers will enjoy (and possibly relate to) most. Teens can probably handle most of the language and sexual content, but parents may want to pre-screen -- or, better yet, watch with them to discuss the show's more mature topics.

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendo and suggestive glances are common, and some female characters wear tight, revealing outfits. One scene features strippers doing pole dances and giving lap dances to male customers. One character sings a suggestive song called "Muffin Top."


Infrequent violence is exaggerated for laughs (like a cat taking a bite out of a woman's neck).


"Pissed off," "hell," "suck it," "bitch," and the like are prevalent, as are sexual terms like "vagina" and "undersexed." One episode revolved around the word "c--t," but it was never said out loud.

Social Behavior

The show plays up some racial stereotypes (like a slang-talking African-American man who's trailed by a posse of hangers-on) and exaggerated personality quirks for laughs. The well-intentioned protagonist is constantly playing catch-up to her self-serving boss.


While the show satirizes the existence of conglomerate businesses (the onscreen network is called "NBC-GE-Universal-Kmart"), there's also a fair amount of product placement. Much of it is acknowledged with tongue-in-cheek humor, but it's there.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Bar scenes include lots of drinking among the over-21 crowd; the characters sometimes drive immediately after drinking. Some jokes reference Tracy's history with substance abuse.
