A Classic!, 27 November 2014
Author: g-bodyl from United States

This is the tenth episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it's a near comedy classic. To this date, the episode is the highest-rated of the series and it deserves it. Alec Baldwin is excellent as always, but he takes it to a new level by playing two characters, including one with a Hispanic background. Jon Hamm makes a great addition to the cast as Liz's new neighbor.

In this episode, "Generalissimo," Elisa's grandmother hates Jack because he looks very similar to an evil general in a Spanish television program, so Jack decides to change the personality of the general. Meanwhile, Liz tries to woo her new neighbor by doing unpractical things like open his mail.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode and it's one of my favorites. It has a strong screenplay and the jokes work almost every time. I rate this episode 9/10.
