  • Jenna's mother comes to visit.

    8.0
    One thing I have noticed this season is that Pete Hornberger has gotten a lot funnier. For the first three seasons he was barely even there and can you even remember a funny scene with him in it? I certainly can't, I just remember him as the photographer in that one episode of The Office, but this season he has been a solid contributor to the show with the virtual elimination of the writers. Lutz needs to go though. I really don't know anybody who likes him.



    Overall, a funny episode tonight. I really hope this character does not recur as Jenna's mother though. That was completely unnecessary, but at least Jack's scenes with her were funny. Alec Baldwin's gonna be tough to beat come Emmy time this year. While 30 Rock has dropped a bit in quality he's been consistently good week in and week out.



    And I can't leave out Tracy's hilarious commentary during the video. "I hate to be the black guy at the movies...."moreless
