Of course you don’t need a list of reasons why Tina Fey rules, but I’m assuming you want one. So here it is:
She doesn’t dress like she’s meeting Michelle Obama for lunch all the time. Her characters hang out at home without shoes and pants and underwear, like God intended.
Characters in her shows actually laugh in conversation, like friends. Not like the Anniston-Cox-Schwimmer-LeBlanc-Perry-Kudrow Friends who didn’t seem to have anyone else to hang out with.
Not every male/female relationship is dipped in sexual tension, just good old fashioned conversation and then everyone goes home. This leaves the audience to wonder if there will be a wedding on the season finale and if not, what the hell else is supposed to happen in a season finale? Is someone going to die?
Her rendition of Marcia Clark is so right on it actually makes me feel bad for Marcia Clark, having her inner world and Christopher Darden obsession exposed so hilariously. Fun fact: Christoper Darden actually married a woman named Marcia Carter. It’s hard not to take that personally.
She gave the world Titus Andromedon, for which she should win a Nobel Peace Prize because no one brings people together like a little Titus Andromedon.
She played a female woman, of the feminine persuasion, with a vagina and everything, who wasn’t obsessed with gaining weight. In deference to every TV show in the world where forks with salad hover near and around a mouth it never enters she validated the donut-eating, gut-embracing, cheese curl-worshiping diva in us all.
