Trivia

This episode and 30 Rock: Ludachristmas (2007) have no official titles like all other episodes of the show, because of the on-going writer's strike that started in 2007 and ended in April 2008. Apparently, the strike started before the writer's were able to come up with titles for the two episodes. See more »

Goofs

When Tracey is trying to convince Kenneth to drink coffee, the level in his cappuccino changes. First it is full to froth with the brim, then it cuts to a shot where the level is much lower, then it cuts back to a shot where the mug is full to the brim. See more »

The one with the coffee
28 October 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Episode 10 of Season 2 doesn't have a proper title, since it was the last episode written before the WGA strike in 2007 and the writers weren't able to come up with a title in time. Nevertheless, the lack of an official name doesn't detract from its main virtue: it's funny as hell.

As usual, the main chaos is to blame on Jack and Liz: he is supposed to make a deal with some German businessmen but is too busy trying to patch things up with C.C., so Liz, who is also trying to buy an apartment of her own, has to talk to the Germans, which results in her inadvertently selling NBC to them. Tracy, on the other hand, brings a coffee machine to work, leading to Kenneth becoming addicted to caffeine (not a good thing) and deciding it's better if he moves back to Georgia.

Episode 210 works for the usual reasons (script, Fey, Baldwin, Tracy), but earns a few extra points by having additional strengths: firstly, any scene with a language mix-up in any sitcom is always funny (Exhibit A: the Friends episode where Joey tries to speak French); then there's Jack McBrayer, who has some of his best Kenneth moments here. Plus, it ends with a rather touching musical number. And it manages to stay touching despite being performed by Tracy and Jenna. Now that's impressive!
