I liked last nights episode but I am starting to find Jenna annoying, even more than Tracy. Everything with Jack, Liz, and Criss was great though.
They've upped Jenna's crazy quotient so far this season. Trashing Liz's apartment, for example.

I don't know, I like her crazy.

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

The Governor Dunston thing was a fun idea-- a nice wink at the Tina Fey/Sarah Palin phenomenon, and a good way of throwing a wrinkle into the "trash NBC" storyline-- but I thought the Dunston character himself was too random and too over-the-top to be particularly funny. Obviously 30 Rock is built to some extent on "too random and too over-the-top," but you can have too much of a good thing. Some of the Kenneth (and now Hazel) jokes have sometimes fallen into that trap, and Dunston did so as well. Overall a fine episode, though.

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

I thought last night's episode was a little hit-and-miss.

Jack being "Pokemon'd" seemed off to me, not really in line with his character.

Liz finding her groove was kinda funny. She now knows 4 positions, one involving a chair!

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

I like this latest one. I'm a sucker for the political humor. "Florida: America's Penis".

Okay, not that original, but try to unwindulax and enjoy it.



And it's good to see Jenna with a new hit single: Catching Crabs in Paradise.

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

For most of its length I wasn't particularly excited by "Unwindulax," despite the fun of seeing Gary Cole and Amy Sedaris on 30 Rock. The show's approach to political humor is a little one-note, which works in the short bursts we usually get but felt ever so slightly tedious as the focus of the episode. The final reveal was great, though, and I'm looking forward to next week; bringing Jenna into the Liz-Jack political dichotomy has real potential.

It would also be a good opportunity to bring back Verna one more time before the series ends.

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

"There's No I in America" didn't deliver quite as much as I'd hoped-- the Pete subplot was pathetic more than it was funny, the Stone Mountain cutaways were overwrought, and I don't think they did enough Jenna-centric election jokes-- but generally it was another fun episode. I especially liked "a woman People magazine once called 'a friend of the deceased.'"

Yeah, that was the best line of the episode.

Well, that and Jack's negative ad about Liz.

Glasses!!

Brown hair!!

Does Tracy seem more lucid and subdued to anyone else?

He certainly made an impassioned speech on why people who don't know what they're doing should vote anyway.



Tracy has always been a fountain of profundity.

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

Aunt Phatso vs. Jack Donaghy was pretty good.

Now that Hazel has been fired, what will just disappear, or come back with a vengeance?

Where's Frank been this season?

Anyway, tune in next week for Liz Lemon's wedding!! She's finally taking the plunge with Cyclops (AKA Criss Chross). This should be a calm and subtle event...

Re: 30 Rock: Final Season (Discussion, spoilers, etc.)

So am I the only one left watching this show?



Anyway, Liz Lemon...married in her Princess Leia costume.

Perfect.

And of course, "Black Dennis" was classic.

I love 30 Rock but I always end up watching the episode a couple of weeks after it airs, I watch it online and I keep forgetting I have one to watch!
