    30 Rock Flu Shot

    - In this episode the flu is spreading through the studio. The highups get shots. But the down people wont. Leaving liz on terms she wont get a shot. Which she gets support by people around her. For the first time ever. Liz seeing how sick everyone is getting gets the flu shot. But wants to keep it a secret because she likes the respect she is finally getting from everybody in the studio. In the end they find out she got the shot and begin to hate her again. Overall i thought this was a great episode. I laughed out loud a couple of times.moreless

    "I believe doctor-patient confidentiality is a two way street."



    Just another great episode of the best comedy on television and finally Dr. Leo Spaceman has returned. Chris Parnell did not get much screen time here but nearly everything he said had you in stitches, especially admitting that his favorite part of being a doctor was witnessing executions.



    Tracy was excellent here as well and although he'll probably never get an award for this role here's clearly one of the most entertaining personalities on TV, whether its acting or not.



    I did not like the whole surreal/zombie thing, but that's just nitpicking really as this was another excellent offering.moreless
