April 5, 2007: "Sir, It's the Mayor" Season 1, Episode 18

Welcome, welcome, welcome back 30 Rock! And congratulations, congratulations, congratulations on your pick-up for a second season! </super-sizing> So much to celebrate this week, it almost deserves a fireworks spectacular... or not. As much as I sensed that Jack's super-lame idea would actually go over well with his bosses, never did I foresee the most unfortunate execution of it. I mean, literally shooting off fireworks in midtown? Even ones that form a cowboy hat? Eek. This week's guest star - shrewdly cast, as is the Rock's calling card - was Arrested Development's Will Arnett, currently in theaters with the No. 1 movie, Blades of Glory. Here, a different sort of blade was in play, as NBC exec Devon took a shine to our poor, unsuspecting Kenneth. "Can you give me a hand, Kenneth?" Yikes, that was a short robe. How meaty was this episode? I'm three paragraphs in and haven't even touched on Liz's clumsy pursuit of Floyd (Floyd?!), or Tracy's discovery that he's a descendant of Thomas Jefferson (and Twofer's subsequent realization that his grandfather was a black Confederate soldier). Good thing Frank is handy with the magnifying glass (though with his glasses, why?). The bullets: " Liz and hot-dog cart guy agog to see Floyd enter a church on a Tuesday. "But he seemed so normal!" " Jack noting how Devon "turned me on to the concept of 10-second Internet sitcoms" - and the example that followed. " Frank to a disguised Tracy: "Dude, what's with the ridiculous hat and glasses?" " The subpoena server outing himself by pitching a sketch about Clinton and cheeseburgers. " Jack realizing Devon's sexual proclivities: "Oh, my god. He's even more powerful that I thought." " Kenneth recounting his first gay-bait "date" with Devon: "We just talked about Anderson Cooper, mostly." " Tracy asking Dr. Spaceman if his DNA contains his PIN code - and the doc responding, "Absolutely! Science is whatever we want it to be." " Kenneth having a show idea about two cops named Cash and Carey, but stumped for a title. " Devon: "You're going down." Jack: "No. I don't do that." " Liz's pivot upon hearing AAer Floyd about to disclose his issues with women. " Kenneth's lament about being used "just like on What's Happening, when that man used Rerun to bootleg the Doobie Brothers concert." " The Alias reference I previewed here. " Tracy struggling with the white man and black man within his psyche: "It's like the audience for a Bobby McFerrin concert in here." " Maury, Jack as T.J., the finger, the Force.... " Floyd's "Tarzan on Ice"-pimping bender. " Liz: "It makes me seem nut-log/Anne Heche crazy." " "Confederate Monster: The Tobias Spurlock Disaster." " Liz's admissions: Barack vs. McCain; the sex fantasies about Gopher; the four, no make that five donuts. Good, good stuff. show less
