By Far, The Best Episode!
31 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The twelfth episode in season one of 30 Rock is what I would like to call a comedic masterpiece. This is by far, the best episode of season one because of it's sheer brilliance and several outstanding cameos by Isabella Rossellini and Paul Reubens. It's very funny and incredibly funny and that all adds up to a wonderful time!

In this episode, "Black Tie," Jack invites Liz to a formal party celebrating the birthday of an Austrian prince, but he tells her it's not a date....until they see his ex-wife. Meanwhile, Tracy uses the studio for a party hangout and tries to convince Pete to cheat on his wife.

Overall, a very funny episode and it's about as perfect as you can get and it's the high point of an already-funny series. The banter between Baldwin and Rossellini as well as Fay is worth your time and attention. I rate this episode 10/10.
