  • Its all about carbon footprints this week as Kenneth is tasked with lowering TGS' carbon footprint. Liz tries to get into the Manhattan real estate game by driving out her upstairs neighbor.

    This ep was one of the sharper ones this season with some really stinging dialogue without ever coming across as either preachy or demeaning, just plain funny. As usual Baldwin steals every scene he is in and everyone else performs brilliantly in another very funny ep.

    This week Jack has given Kenneth the task of reducing the carbon footprint of TGS in line with Green Week. This job includes unplugging all of Jenna's chargers in her dressing room and convincing Liz to get rid of her office mini fridge. Kenneth doesn't need to act on Frank as Frank has an interesting system using sun tea to reduce his own carbon footprint.

    Meanwhile, Liz has been informed that the building she lives in is "going Condo" and that she either buys up or ships out. Liz wants something bigger for a family when Jack suggests that she bribe her upstairs neighbor to move out so she can buy the apartment as well as her own and have a larger condo. She goes to do just that when she discovers that everyone has been bribing him to move but he won't budge, he then says that both he and Liz should move in together and be a united front. Jenna sees this as a way of being of horror roommate and force him out but whatever Liz tries doesn't work and she is beginning to lose hope.

    In other news, Jack decides to have a vasectomy so that he can put the whole having a family thing to rest. Tracey follows suit as he is tired of having kids and not being able to tell inappropriate stories so he wants no more kids. They both go to Leo Spaceman to get it done but both have defining moments that make them reconsider.

    There was a lot packed into this ep and to its credit it didn't let it overwhelm the story and how it all panned out. Plus there was a great cameo from Al Gore that got me to chuckle a bit, even if in the spirit of green week they were using recycled jokes!
