    30 ROCK Senor Macho Solo - Now i missed the ending of this episode so i am going to have to wait to buy it on dvd. But i saw enough to give a review. So the episode goes along with Jack's mother getting a nurse to take care of her. Jack gets interesting with the nurse and wants to have a relaship with her. While Liz wanting a child of her own pats the head of person on the streeet thinking he was a child. It turned out to be small person embarresed she goes out on a date with him. Trying to hold back because she thinks he is a child. Overall from wat i saw i wasnt to impressed but the parts with liz were funny.moreless

    This wasn't Season 1 or 2 quality, but this was a step-up from some of the episodes we've been given this year.



    What worked were the simple, subtle things that made 30 Rock great in the first place. Jack getting up and slowly leaving while Angie and Tracy were going at it on his desk, Stuart saying how he lied about watching Liz' show and Tracy wearing a shirt made of money. Just things that you can laugh at without having to think too much about.



    That's not to say this isn't a smart show, as it certainly is but this was a more enjoyable, traditional sitcom style than we've been accustomed too. Salma Hayek wasn't great, but she did have a few funny lines such as not knowing that Michael Buble had so many CDs, poking fun at Jack's music collection.



    A good episode overall.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Jack says he is waiting for the results of a biopsy to determine the status of the lump he found on his testicle. This is medically inaccurate. What is usually called a "testicular biopsy" (which is usually done only to test virility) is not done to diagnose testicular cancer due to the risk of spreading the disease. Doctors will perform an ultrasound on the testicle to examine the lump, and if cancer is suspected, they perform a surgical procedure called an orchiectomy. While this is an outpatient procedure, it requires rest afterward, and it is doubtful Jack would be at work and attending picnics as if nothing happened.

    • Frank's trucker hat reads, "Night Chicks".
