What I'm Watching: 30 Rock

30 Rock: Season 2, Episode 10 (B)

What a bizarre episode. Why did they suddenly start singing? I do not get it, but I did not dislike it. Is Jack McBrayer leaving the show? I hope not, though he (and Jane Krakowski, for that matter) were far more entertaining and well-utilized last season. It is always a weird moment when Tracy Morgan/Jordan seems like the most normal one in the room. Liz's plotline was also strange this episode, and Tina Fey gives the most unexpectedly crazy performance I have seen in a while. To keep it all grounded, oddly enough, is the fantasy world that Jack and C.C. try to live in, in the coal mining station which is exactly halfway between New York and D.C. For all of its indiosyncracies, I do love this show. Too bad this is the last pre-strike episode.
