Mostly Funny!
16 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the third episode of the second season of 30 Rock and for the most part, it's funny. It does have the unfortunate title of being the weakest episode so far, but we are only three episodes in. But the highlight of the episode is the hilarious inclusion of Steve Buscemi. As an inspector looking into Jack's life, I just couldn't stop laughing.

In this episode, "The Collection," with Jack in the running for the new CEO, he hires an inspector to look into his life and he advises Jack to get rid of his cookie jar collection. Meanwhile, Liz has to keep an eye on Tracy to make sure he doesn't upset his wife. Finally, Kenneth is ordered to force Jenna to eat, so she won't lose her weight.

Overall, this is a solid episode. But I felt the cookie jar scenario was weak. The acting by Alec Baldwin and Buscemi makes it bearable, but it could have been better. I loved the Tracy scenes though, especially when his wife is ordering everyone around. I rate this episode 8/10.
