    What, not thread yet?!?!


    This episode was hilarious! The bit with Aaron Sorkin was just too much..

    So many great lines. So funny!

    "Walk with me...."

    "...Studio 60...shut up.."

    "Did we just go in a circle?"

    "We don't need two metaphors, that's bad writing, not that that matters".

    "we live under the subways, with the CEO of Friendster!"

    "I was going to 'Trading Places' you"

    It was a great one - but not as good as the previous episode, which didn't even merit a thread out here apparently.

    Eh.. the reality show episode I thought they were trying too hard.. it felt forced and not that funny.

    I didn't like the last episode at all. (Queen Of Jordan.)

    I did like the Studio 60 line. :D

    I thought this episode was hilarious.

    The Aaron Sorkin bit especially. Did we just go in a circle? I didn't realize he had a sense of humor about himself. I'm glad I was wrong.

    You don't have a Plan B? I've been telling you to get one for two years.
    But there were a lot of Amazing Races to watch. And then I had to go online and comment about them.
    :D

    I loved the Queen of Jordan episode! I thought it was awesome.

    This one was pretty good, though I wax and wane on how much I like the show in general.

    Was the final scene a reference to something? Kenneth's pose and the music seemed familiar, but I couldn't place it.

    Me too... Or maybe it's just one of those terribly generic endings to all those 70s sitcoms.

    Plus he knows how to beat Angry Birds 11-4 (what he said is the correct way to beat the level). :)

    I liked the episode--definitely funnier than the last few outings overall.

    *I thought the Aaron Sorkin bit was hilarious even though I never watched any of his shows. I knew enough to realize why those bits were funny... 30 Rock always does a good job at those subtle references like the "walking track shot", etc. I also had forgotten about that whole "Studio 60 / 30 Rock" thing. Guess Aaron's not too bitter.

    *"We're people who's jobs are no longer things"--lol.

    Highlight: "You wanna party? It's 500 for kissing, 10,000 for snuggling. End of list."

    I thought this was one of the better ones of the season. I think we paused at least 3x until we stopped laughing. (I think I need to create a "pause" scale. The more pauses, the funnier the show....this was a 3 pause).

    You guys hit most of the good lines. The Angry Birds, the Sorkin stuff (had to explain that to my wife....I love how the whole thing was done in Sorkin cadence), and The Amazing Race......made me think of here for sure. Also loved how they kept going round and round with what the Network that Jack bought was about...and his new boss being Angry but not showing his anger.

    Wow. This is two bad episodes in a row for me. The reality one was just too much, and this one just didn't fit. I guess TJ makes a bigger difference in the show than expected.

    It's funny, I think TJ is funnier NOT being on the show :)

    I loved the Sorkin bit. I tried to explain the awesomeness that is Sorkin to my g/f but she didn't really get it so I put in the Pilot of West Wing and she fell asleep.

    I liked this episode. Let's hope they tone down the Tracy Jordan when he comes back.
