Another Funny Episode!
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fourteenth episode in the first season of 30 Rock is a delightfully funny episode. While it doesn't feature much in the spectacular department, I still think it's an above-average episode that has wit and plenty of charm thanks to a subplot involving a word that is taboo in network television, plus it is also an experience that Tina Fey came across when she was head writer at SNL.

This episode, "The C Word," is a pretty risky one. The main focus is on Tina Fey as she is being a bad boss because of stress and one of her writers calls her a nasty name. Meanwhile, Jack takes Tracy to a celebrity golf tournament where things turn sour after Tracy realizes he is the only black guy there.

Overall, this is a funny episode that has a surprising starring turn by Rip Torn and it was a hilarious one too. This show has plenty of clever jokes and all I can say is full steam ahead. I rate this episode 9/10.
