"Somebody to Love" Season 2, Episode 6

This episode had a lot to live up to, with no less than Emmy-fave Edie Falco guesting as Jack's new lady love, CC, so it's not surprising that - in my opinion, at least - it fell juuuuuuust a bit short. It's almost as if the funniest parts of the Falco story were played by Kristin Wiig in the Lifetime movie based on that horrible, sad, and you would hope preventable accident involving a dog and misplaced hunting rifle. That said, that is a Lifetime movie I would watch (even though it involves neither a kidnapped nor sickly baby). "I... want to go into politics." Here I must note that due to an inexplicable recording glitch, my "bullets" and quotes from last night's show may be a bit off and not verbatim. So rein in the snarky retorts, thanks! For good measure, I will remind you that I am paraphrasing by slapping an asterisk on paraphrased bits. I actually think the "Liz suspects the neighbor is a terrorist" story played out rather well, though you had to suspect she would be off base. But I love how they turned out to be aspiring Amazing Race contestants and how Liz kept muttering, "No... No..." as she realized her hasty call. Keep in mind, though, that she was not being racist about those "pita pockets." Kenneth's dares-for-dollars quest to replace Jack's $2,500 pants fell flat for me, with the best line amidst it all being about how maybe his uncle was right about his just being a bumpkin with nice hair and soft hands.* The sometimes-paraphrased bullets: " Tracy in the background of the three-way phone call rehearsing his Rerun dance " Jack suggesting that the syrupy smell was northrax, and Liz then waiting out the 10 seconds to see if she dies " The Sheinhardt Wig Company T-shirts: "Not Poisoning Rivers Since 1977" - but then how do you explain the orange kids? " Liz repeatedly getting her hopes up about her prescription shampoo " Nonracist Liz: "I asked that black guy if he saw Sideways." " Jack admonishing the bartender, noting that a Nancy Drew ordered by a man is called a Hardy Boy. (Are those real drinks?!) " Cute little "wow" moment: Alec Baldwin singing, "What the World Needs Now (Is Love Sweet Love)" " Jack explaining to CC that he owns "a little Sheinhardt Wig Company subsidiary called NBC" " This one I really mangled, but Jack reacting to CC's project in Harlem by saying, "God, I want to kiss you on the mouth to stop you from saying such silly things." Lastly, yes, I have it on very good authority from a well-placed source at 30 Rock that - lest you had any doubt - the Verizon references and blatant pimping were part of an actual deal brokered by the marketing department. (Yet another way, perhaps, that studios are not making money to share?) show less
