I've been re-watching 30 Rock on Netflix this week, and I realized there were major story lines season 3 that seem to have been unapologetically dropped at the start of season 4. For instance, season 3 ends with a television event to find Milton Green a kidney...and, apart from a later mention of Elvis Costello, this major storyline is never mentioned again. Similarly, Jenna is focused on her movie about Jackie Jormp Jomp, but this subplot never re-emerges. Is there a reason?
For TV shows like The Mindy Project or 30 Rock, where the creator is also the star, to what extent is the creator involved in the writing? Do they split the job of showrunner with someone else or are they not in the writer's room at all? If there is a showrunner, at what point in the pitch process does that person usually get hired?

After recommendations from friends, I've just recently discovered 30 Rock. I started watching from Season 1, Episode 1. Turns out I love the show. But here's the problem: I'm in a place in my life with very little time to dedicate to TV. So while I want to be caught up so I can watch the most recent episodes and talk about them with friends, there's no way I can watch all of the episodes. So, MeFi - what are the must-watch 30 Rock episodes? I've Googled around, but would love your opinions.

A series of series and serialized sub-serials. Seriously, basically help me make some mini-series - there will be spoilers.
*Spoiler Alert*Never Read This Thread (but none within the question itself): I am hoping to create a set of custom original miniature series "arcs", highlighting various things; characters/topics/ story-arcs/plot-arcs... any sort of "shortening of a longer series" that you love, or like or know.

I recently heard a joke on the show 30 Rock: "I love Foxy Boxing. It combines my two favorite things: boxing and referees!". I think I've heard this joke before. I feel like it was on Futurama. Is this my imagination?
