"MILF Island" Season 2, Episode 11

Well, 30 Rock is back, and as glorious as that is in and of itself, I'd be lying if I said this was a super-great episode. Yes, "MILF Island" and the many (and well-deserved) digs at reality television was pretty damn funny, but outside of that, Liz simply seemed to not be herself. Ausiello and I have been talking about it all week, and she was just too duplicitous. I mean, when she called Kenneth an "apple-faced buffoon," my heart sank, so did his, and I suspect even Jack McBrayer's did, too. I'd much rather have had it turn out - and this was my theory when I first read the breakdown for the episode - that Liz purposely leaked the story for some brilliant reason, a la to earn Jack sympathy from his peers or something. And the Pete subplot, having watched it a second time? I still have no idea what it was about. Even the telephone part was a looooong trip to find out the store was closed. I did like, though - and thought they should have done a lot more with - the "parallels" between the "MILF" events and the strategizing staff. When Frank first talked of an alliance, I thought we were heading somewhere. And then Tracy with the banana. But then... nothing. (And how do you crank up the heat in the office without having Cerie gradually strip down and thus taunt the men?) Back to "MILF" - did you pay attention to the footage in the background of some scenes? With the kids riding on the moms' backs, in slo-mo? Loved it. The bullets: " "Who will be the final mommy you'd like to... you know...?" " "Twenty MILFs, 50 8th-grade boys, no rules." " Um, why would a Page Six story just be getting discovered... at night? " Deborah and Debra squaring off in Erection Cove. " Confessional showers! " Jack touting "MILF"'s combo of "sex, lies, puberty, betrayal, relay races...." " Liz: "What we do is art." And cut to the farting robot sketch. " Jack, the most Googled "Class A Moron": "Step aside, Randy Quaid." " "Heidi.... We no longer want to hit that." " Kenneth listing for Liz the reasons why Twofer and Frank didn't blab to Page Six. Namely: "Also, I saw you do it." " Was Kenneth hiding behind an American Gladiator cutout?! " I'm counting the hours until a stutterers' organization slams the classification of young Jack as a "class A moron." " Lutz: "I'm not a dirt bag. This is from American Eagle!" " "One of my implants imploded and I didn't even ask to get off the catapult." " The "MILF" winner will be revealed "...after three more breaks!" Next week's episode, I must rave, is awesome and loaded with guffaws, rewind-worthy moments and more. See you then! show less
