The Black Crusaders
16 October 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

With the first, hilarious season of 30 Rock coming to an end (still one episode after this one), the jokes just keep getting funnier. Like Arrested Development before it, 30 Rock appears to be set to become the new Seinfeld: the sillier the ideas, the better.

Case in point: still unable to get his Jefferson biopic financed, Tracy panics once he starts suspecting the Black Crusaders, a covert organization that punishes black people who are negative role models, are coming after him (apparently, Bill Cosby himself is an important member). Liz dismisses that theory as garbage, primarily because she has her own concerns, namely that Floyd asked her to move with him to his hometown, Cleveland, where he got a new job and apartment. Furthermore, Jack has sexual problems with his fiancée, Phoebe, and asks Liz and Jenna to hang out with her. Turns out the sweet lady might not be what she seems.

Overall, this is am episode dominated by Liz and Tracy, the latter's paranoia providing great expectations for the season finale and the former's interaction with Phoebe spawning a superb Sex and the City reference. Comedy dialogue has hit a new high. Oh, and the Cleveand montage is spot-on. 'Nuff said.
