Trivia

Actress Megan Mullally injured her knee short before the season premiere, and was unable to walk without crutches. But because her part in this episode was so important, the producers decided at the last hour to put her in a cast and a motorized scooter, with the excuse that Karen Walker just had surgery to separate her webbed toes.

Good episode but WAY too much breaking of character
10 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know that this episode was aired live but most of the actors are theatre performers, yes? The only one to (mostly) kept on track was Megan Mullally who really rose to the occasion and stayed professional. Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Eric McCormack all burst into laughter too much which may have been funny at the time for audiences at home, is kind of annoying viewing the episode now. Otherwise, the plot was good. It didn't move along as well as it could have but that may have had to do with the actors constantly breaking character. I hate that I have to give a quality show such a low rating. I did enjoy Alec Baldwin as the guest star.
