    I don't know, something about this season seems off. Although, I did love them addressing Tracey's recent controversy, I'm glad it's something that wasn't just swept under a rug.

    Agreed, but I've felt this way for a couple seasons now.

    Zero chemistry between Tina Fey and James Marsden, by the way.

    True, although the later episodes have grown on me a bit after re-watching most of the series on Comedy Central...

    Are they actually developing Kenneth's character?

    This season has been as good as it ever was.

    I loved Liz's apology to idiots last week.
    The new boyfriend looks like a keeper. He's stupid, but not too stupid. It's just the balance she needs.

    Liz has sort of moved past needing Jack.
    I don't know how Kenneth would fit in as his protege. He's too big of a threat. He fits in with the Cabletown management better then Jack.

    It's always been Liz and Jack or Tracy and Kenneth.
    It would be weird if it became more Jack and Kenneth.

    Tina Fey has also been doing hair coloring commercials. I guess that officially makes here a glamor girl.

    The more I watch the show, the less I care about Liz. I mean, she has the perfect guy for her who isn't a poorly written Gary Stu out of a fanfiction *cough*Carol*cough* and she almost blows it over a table. On one hand, I'm glad it didn't end because I want Liz to be happy, but when she acts like this I really stop caring for her.

    I hope Kristen Schall's character stays as the Liz stalker/impersonator/wannabe/etc.

    So Liz showed up as The Joker and I suddenly realized I had no idea where the plot was. This was just a thing that was happening. It was just bonkers for bonkers' sake.

    That gives me a sinking feeling. They may be starting to go too far and becoming Mike Scully Simpsons. I'm worried Joker Liz may be the shark-jumping moment here.

    I think the shark jumping was last season.

    Yeah, there aren't many plots anymore, just crazy antics every week...

    I think they were going for another Liz and Jenna trade places episode.
    Not nearly as good as the one where they try to find friends the same as they are only to find they compliment each other.

    I thought it was funnier then last weeks heavily story driven episode.

    The highlight last week was the U.N. visit.
    After that I'm wondering why Jack is walking all day and night with his mother in-law and why Liz doesn't order a table to be delivered or if just one of them went to get it.

    There was nothing about that to like.

    The Leap Day premise was too big to be quirky, and there was nothing really fun about it. I had zero buy in. This was no Festivus.

    Usually, even if the concept is weak, they still manage to be funny. But not this week.

    If I see this in syndication I'd only watch it to wonder what they were thinking when they made such a sucky episode.
    Really, 3 K's whipping a man?

    Wow, two parody episodes in a row with no advancement of anything. Why is this show starting to look more and more like a FOX cartoon?
