December 7, 2006: "Rural Juror" Season 1, Episode 7

Sure, 30 Rock gave us yet another riff on what a wild and crazy guy Tracy Jordan is, but any episode that has my wife laughing so hard that she almost falls off the sofa gets high marks. 30 Rock is really finding its footing. The addition of Dennis - Halo-playing, pager-pimping, shaves-in-the-kitchen-sink manchild Dennis - offers Liz groans at home as well as at work. While over at "TGS," the occasional B-story bone tossed to Tom, Kenneth or Jenna helps the show feel even less claustrophobic. A quick aside about Jenna: She's one sad case. Not only was she fired from a ShopRite commercial gig, and not only is her biggest big-screen credit the unintelligible "Rural Juror" (an audible joke that never got old), but she brags of having a vacation home in Florida - Clearwater, Florida. My family trekked to the Tarpon Springs-adjacent city every spring during my childhood, and while adequately sandy and sunny, I'm pretty sure Amy Poehler does better. Moments of the week: - Jack, to a zinger-offering Liz: "This isn't open-mike night at Bryn Mawr." - Dennis, unwittingly dating his box of Wheaties: "What kind of fruity name is Bode Miller?" - Tracy sharing, "My wife and I like to play Rape. I wear a stocking on my head and....," thankfully he was cut off. - Conan O'Brien's awkward run-in with ex-girlfriend Liz: "Let's not do this, Elizabeth." - Jack threatening I-forget-who: "You'll do a Christmas special live from Kabul every year until we win the war." Eek. - And how could you not love Rachel Dratch as the "blue dude" haunting tripping Tracy? What a trouper. But for me, the highlight was SNL alum Chris Parnell as Dr. Spaceman - pronounced "Spah-CHEH-min" (another audible ha-ha). "What can you do?" Tracy's physician(/dentist?) shrugged. "Medicine's not a science." It isn't? The Mrs. and I were howling. As for Kenneth, his Zach Braff "thing" and the clogging? I'd rather not think about that too much. But look at the Scrubs star becoming Must-See TV's go-to guy for NBC shout-outs. (Remember The Office's "Dawali"?) show less
