Storyline

After the fireworks-disaster Jack is taken away the microwave department by Don Geiss. Geiss also talks to Tracy, who tells him about his movie project "Jefferson" in which Tracy wants to play Thomas Jefferson, who turned out to be one of his ancestors. When Geiss turns the ideas down, Tracy plans to shoot an own "Jefferson" promotion on his own to convince Geiss that the movie is a great idea. Liz is very happy with Floyd and Jack wants to meet him. So, Jack, Floyd and Liz are having dinner together, but Jack is very sad about being taken away the microwaves and dinner seems not to be much fun until Floyd and Jack suddenly get along with each other. Jack also meets Phoebe who works at an art gallery and who seems to be very interested in Jack. Written by Anonymous

Tracy Jefferson
15 October 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Ever since I saw Grindhouse, I've had a thing for fake trailers, specifically the deliberate fakeness. They're so out of this world, so surreal and so funny, it's impossible not to love them. Case in point? The borderline crazy experiment one Tracy Jordan goes ahead with in this episode.

After finding out he's a descendant of Thomas Jefferson, Tracy asks Don Geiss to finance his new project, a biopic of the man in which he will play all the roles. Geiss rejects the idea and suggests the comedian return to his gross-out roots (he wants a sequel to Fat Bitch - the title says it all). Unwilling to surrender, Tracy decides to shoot a promo that he will show to Geiss, which leads to him staying in character for days, complete with wig, silly accent and a horse pooping all over the TGS offices.

Outside the NBC building, Jack, still recovering from the fireworks fiasco, seems to have found happiness again when he goes to an art gallery and runs into Phoebe (Emily Mortimer), who previously helped his ex-wife with some jewelry. In addition, Liz insists that he meet her new boyfriend Floyd. The situation degenerates when the two start getting along a tad too much.

As the first season gets close to its conclusion, there's still no sign of complacency on the writers' part: the dialogue sparkles, the set-ups amuse and everything in general just provides a huge sense of joy. Also notable is Mortimer, always a delightful presence, even with an American accent. And then there's the aforementioned fake promo, so ridiculous I'd actually like to see the non-existing movie so I could get to say: "I can't believe they really did it!"

Oh, and there's the usual classy piece of philosophy coming from Baldwin's mouth. This one has to be the best: "Floyd is me 20 years ago, I'm Don Geiss 30 years ago. 20 years from now, Floyd will be me, I'm gonna be Don Geiss and Don Geiss will be dead."
