Thursday Comedy Roundup: 30 Rock 7.08 & Parks and Rec 5.09

8 December 2012 7:20 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

30 Rock, Season 7, Episode 8, “My Whole Life is Thunder”

Written by Jack Burditt & Colleen McGuinness

Directed by Linda Mendoza

Airs Thursdays at 8pm Et on NBC

Is there a show outside of 30 Rock that would be audacious enough to follow one wedding episode with another? Perhaps “wedding episode” is a misnomer, as the actual wedding is buried in the post-episode tag, but the threat of Jenna’s wedding (to Paul, who it had seemed the show had forgotten this season) is pervasive, inspiring thoughts of ‘Could they? No, they wouldn’t…” until they finally do. This is yet another example of the startling liveliness 30 Rock has recovered in the face of its imminent demise.

If last week’s episode seemed preoccupied with mortality, “My Whole Life is Thunder”—a rather ominous title—goes all in and features a funeral, that of Jack’s mother, Colleen. That her funeral ends up being »

Thursday Comedy Roundup: Parks and Recreation 5.01

22 September 2012 8:09 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Parks and Recreation, Season 5, Episode 1, “Ms. Knope Goes to Washington”

Written by Aisha Muharrar

Directed by Dean Holland

Airs Thursdays at 9:30pm Et on NBC

Tonight we return to Pawnee, Indiana with a brief detour through Washington, DC. Leslie and Andy are visiting Ben, who has accepted Jennifer’s offer to run a congressional campaign and taken April along with him as an assistant. Like much of the episode, this material is familiar but not in any way deficient. Andy’s reactions to Leslie’s tour of the national monuments recall his earlier visit to the Grand Canyon, and the look at what tour guide Andy would look like in the end-tag is one of the episode’s funnier moments.

What elevates this plot is Leslie’s emotional reaction to attending a party with Ben populated by DC’s equivalent to the A-list. When Leslie reveals she is a city-councilwoman, »

30 Rock, Season 6, Episode 5, “Today You Are a Man”

Written by Ron Weiner

Directed by Jeff Richmond

Airs Thursdays at 8pm Et on NBC

This week’s 30 Rock seems like an improvement on the season to date, yet it more or less recycles last week’s Kenneth plot. The staff at Tgs didn’t notice Kenneth’s absence when Jack discontinued the page program (didn’t they make a note of his absence during last week’s party scene?), so Kenneth rebels by switching places with another page and instead of Jack realizing how difficult life without Kenneth is like last week we have the writers experiencing the same epiphany. This is helped along by the dependable Kristen Schaal’s appearance as Hazel Wassername. Hazel is Suze Orman’s page at NBC so when she takes over for Kenneth he fills in for her. This leads to an extraordinarily awkward scene with Mrs. »
