What I'm Watching: 30 Rock

30 Rock: Season 2, Episode 8 "Secrets and Lies" (B)

The episode as a whole did nothing much for me, but the last scene alone is worth the price of admission. The confessions which include the likes of "I voted for Ronald Reagan" and "I'm gay!" lead to someone saying "I'm black!" and then a quick shot of the first guy saying "I killed my wife!" leading right into a commercial break. It is scenes like this which catapult "30 Rock" to the top of everyone's best shows lists. A few weeks ago, when Jack has his therapy session as every one of Tracy's family members, and last year when Jenna said she was voting for Osama and that U.S. troops should start hunting down Obama, those are two wondrous scenes which make the episode. Rarely does this show have an episode as collectively amazing as "Seinfeld Vision", but I live for these small wondrous moments.
