Storyline

Jack joins the writing staff during a meeting as an observer. He joins the group day after day and gets more and more involved in their work. The group gets annoyed by his weird, not so funny ideas and wants him to stop attending the meetings. It is up to Liz to tell Jack that he is no longer welcome at the meetings. After she does, Jack is more than just angry at her. Liz also has to deal with Cerie and the way she dresses, which distracts the male workers from their work. After Kenneth gets nachos for him from Yankee stadium, Tracy uses Kenneth for other "missions". Written by Anonymous

Hilarious!
6 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fourth episode in the first season of 30 Rock is a really funny one. This show has enough juicy material so that everyone can enjoy the wealth. There are some really funny quotes especially those from Tracy Morgan. Alec Baldwin has some more great scenes and I just loved when he joined the writing team and saw everyone's reaction. This episode is sharply written and I see some more good things on the horizon.

This episode, "Jack the Writer," has Jack joining the writing team as an observer, but then tries to take control of the writing. It's to Liz to tell him he is not welcome. Meanwhile, Liz has issues about how her assistant dresses. Also, Tracy has Kenneth running weird errands for him such as getting him nachos from Yankee Stadium.

Overall, this is a really good episode. I enjoyed it for many reasons but especially for the fact of how entertaining it was. I love the character interaction between Baldwin and Fey and I see some really funny things happening between the in the future. I rate this episode 9/10.
