NEWS - Never forget! Quell'episodio di "30 Rock" con Carrie Fisher, tra i capitoli più divertenti della storia tv sul femminismo

News tratta da "Decider"
Tina Fey’s quirky comedy did so many things right, but it was almost always at its best when it was tackling the complexities of feminism. It’s through this lens that the “Rosemary’s Baby” episode of 30 Rock really shines. The Season Two episode marked one of the turning points of the series. After the comedy’s notoriously rough first season, “Rosemary’s Baby” was one of first episodes that cemented the show’s equally quirky and insightful tone. The main plot of Episode Four hinges on Liz Lemon (Tina Fey). When Liz’s idol, the legendary comedy writer Rosemary Howard (Carrie Fisher), comes to the set of The Girlie Show, Liz is faced with the sobering choice that so often defines her character — should she abandon her show and job to stand up for feminism and art, or should she embrace the world she has created? Fisher’s character was the perfect blend of relatable for mainstream audiences and in-the-know for comedy fans, a line 30 Rock walked so well so often. Between jokes about Saturday Night Live’s era of “Not Ready for Primetime Players” to her many Laugh-In references, Rosemary was the perfect mixture of fearless and funny you would expect from a failed 1970s female comedy writer. Fisher played the role beautifully, capturing the character’s natural hilarity — both when audiences were supposed to laugh at and with her — as well as her intensity. However, they say you should never meet your heroes, and that was certainly the case for Liz. In Tina Fey’s always capable hands, this episode put an interesting feminist angle on the argument between embracing corporate America or pure art. Rosemary was the perfect too-wired and idealistic blend you would expect from a fallen comedy idol — just a little too hungry, jaded, and arrogant. The casting of Fisher was also a genius decision for the show, as Fisher’s iconic role as Princess Leia has been established as being one of Liz Lemon’s personal pop culture heroes. Not only that, but casting the actress responsible for one of the most confusing and empowering sci-fi roles in history — a badass rebel princess who was sexualized for years — took a dig at Star Wars’ confusing history with women. It was a smart role that was performed brilliantly by a too-often underrated actor. “Rosemary’s Baby” shows a side of Fisher that was rarely embraced but is unapologetically amazing to watch. The episode gave a just smart enough, meta nod to her cinematic past while highlighting both her comedic and dramatic acting chops. It also gave birth to one of the greatest 30 Rock lines in history, “Never go with a hippie to a second location.” Carrie Fisher’s guest appearance on 30 Rock, which she rightfully received an Emmy nomination for, was one of the funniest episodes of this very funny series as well as one of the first episodes that showed us how special this quirky gem really was. Thank you for your many contributions to pop culture, Carrie Fisher. You will be missed.
