  • Liz goes to her high school reunion.

    This is the 30 Rock we all know and love. Quirky, witty and just a little bit offensive.

    In what seems to be a mandated episode storyline for a NBC sitcom we saw Liz Lemon return to high school for a reunion. Her recollection of her time spent there was not good and resulted in the return of Liz with round glasses and a curly afro hairstyle. While Tina Fey was enjoyable in the environment which was basically a SNL sketch with a gay character, a balding man and two bitter housewives the real stars of this episode were the male actors of the show.

    Kenneth and Tracy were comedic gold together with the latter getting upset at the former stealing laughs while in the elevator. Kenneth's lines were meant to be mediocre yet Jack McBrayer's character is all about making average jokes seem much funnier than they have any right to be. Tracy was the zany personality that we saw from him in Season 1 with an "angry chair" and attempting to steal Kenneth's NBC tours.

    Jack's character was brilliant again here, bluffing his way through a conversation with an old flame of his mistaken identity all while getting across his subtle jabs at the middle class of America. Don't start preordering the Season 3 DVD just yet but this was a high-quality episode of television.
