Trivia

Jenna asks Liz if she can sing a song on the show, and Liz responds that that's a great idea. Jenna then adds, "can I sing *and* roller-dance?" and Liz says yes again, though this time much more dubiously. In 1987, Jane Krakowski (Jenna) made her Broadway debut in the original Broadway cast of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Starlight Express," in which actors playing train cars had to sing and dance while on roller-skates. Although the show was a success in New York (running for just under two years) and one of the all-time longest-running shows in London history (it closed in 2002 after 18 years), the show was widely derided by American theater reviewers. The New York Times's Frank Rich called it "A confusing jamboree of piercing noise, routine roller-skating, misogyny and Orwellian special effects, ''Starlight Express'' is the perfect gift for the kid who has everything except parents," and Variety called it "An inflated, blaring spectacle which tries to substitute size for entertainment . . . Just because a show's characters are anthropomorphized railway trains doesn't absolve the authors of such legit fundamentals as motivation and character development . . . this 'Starlight' skimps the human elements to a fatal degree."

Goofs

When Leo Spaceman shows Jenna the wall of his famous clients, King Hollywood is on the far right and Ashlee Simpson is on the far left. Kenny Rogers is between them. When Jenna stands up to shake Leo's hand, Ashlee is on the far right and King Hollywood is on the far left. The whole scene takes place over a matter of seconds, so there is no way they could have been reversed. See more »

Excellent Episode!
12 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode in the second season of 30 Rock and once again, it's a hilarious and extremely quotable episode. This episode manages to reference season one very well, namely with Jack's heart attack he had. Rip Torn is always a pleasure to be had as Don Geiss and of course Will Arnett is funny as Jack's longtime rival, Devon.

In this episode, "Jack Gets in the Game," Jack's rival Devon announces that he is not gay anymore and he dates Don Geiss's daughter in order to get close to Don. Devon also tries to use Jack's heart attack to his advantage. Meanwhile, Jenna is using her overweight status as an excuse for her fame. Kenneth has a plan to get Tracy jealous of his wife, which involves some very quotable lines.

Overall, this is an excellent episode full of one-liners and ensuing craziness. It seems like this season is going have a recurring theme of Jack's rivalry with Devon so it will be interesting to see how that pans out. I rate this episode 9/10.
