I don't think anything's been technically wrong with 30 Rock this season, but I hadn't been that into it. This week felt like the 30 Rock was really back in its stride. A great mix of off the wall humor, TV references, guest stars, random shout outs to Minka Kelly and Masi Oka, and patented 30 Rock general zaniness. Plus the return of Dr. Spaceman, my favorite 30 Rock ancillary character.

Tracy's flashback to the Cosby Show and showing the exterior of the Huxtable house and recreating the kitchen set instantly won me over. And defining what an acrostic is and making it a major plot point.

Interesting that Liz's new gay hipster cop roommate is a former castmember of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, that preachy OTHER show about the backstage life of a late night comedy show that was not just unfunny but canceled in its freshman year. And he's not funny on 30 Rock either.

How can Rob Corddry be so bald and Nate Corddry be so not, I just don't understand genomes or whatever.

I am ashamed that I never made that connection. I can't believe they didn't take a shot. I guess that show is so ancient history that it'd be even more an arcane reference than Teddy Ruxpin.

In Studio 60's defense, they still had arguably my favourite pilot of all time and the show wasn't intended to be a pilot. Then again, how can you make a show about a sketch comedy show and not intend it to be a comedy?

Forget it, back to 30 Rock. Loved Jenna's war with her elderly neighbour. "My heart.....is GETTING STRONGER EVERY DAY!"



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

Or Warren Moon.

I can't believe how much I hate Chris Parnell, and how much I love Dr. Spaceman.

HUGO and WAR HORSE are both more deserving than SUPER 8 and BRIDESMAIDS. But BRIDESMAIDS is waaaay more deserving than SUPER 8.
