Rural Juror was a movie that Jeanna starred in a few seasons back.
I'm usually not too good at remembering references that far back, but for some reason, Rural Juror was one of my favorite gags, and I thought the callback was great.
I hated the artificial looking Conan scene so much, I thought the show might be ruined. But the rest was good enough to bring it back. (Maybe the obvious green screen-ing was intentional for a joke? If it was, it zoomed me.)
All in all, a good ending.
They did make a joke in the previous episode about how fake green-screening always looks. Maybe that was a setup for the Conan bit.
I recalled that, but it felt more like a line to cover how bad it was, not like they had a good joke and executed it. Fell sort of flat, I thought.
There were two live shows - one in Season 4, and one in Season 6.
One thing I would have liked to see: a callback to The Queen of Jordan. ("Sponsored by (choose: Quizno's, Togo's, Subway) - don't be such a Lutz!")
...but only if it involved a blooper of Sherri Sheppard falling off a cliff.
Maybe Conan was in L.A. and couldn't get to NY to film.
the question is why it looked so bad.
What exactly was the deal with Blimpie's? Was that reverse product placement? I didn't watch the credits to see if they paid for the mention. But if they did, wow, it wasn't very flattering. It would almost be funnier if Subway actually paid for it.
There was an episode where Lutz got to pick lunch. I could have sworn he chose Subway and not Blimpie's.
Jenna never met Mickey Rourke!! Great stuff!
I thought maybe (1) NBC wouldn't let him in the building (99% joking), or (2) he wouldn't WANT to go back in the building.
BTW, I watched the "Occupy Conan" episode of Conan, and Tina Fey did a bit on it as Conan.. (which IIRC they showed in a few pieces spread around the episode).
Plus the flying cars outside the window behind him were a clue that we were way into the future.
That reminds me of something funny in this episode. Liz said something like she was going to do a show on cable where you they let you have the time for a joke to land - and then there was a very fast cut to the next scene with Jenna.
Tina Fey is a genius.
