The Quest for Liz's Baby Continues!
29 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the thirteenth episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it was a pretty good episode. I'm not sure how they successfully made an episode with a theme based off Harry and the Hendersons, but I liked it. I also liked the subplot with Liz as she creates another harebrained idea to adopt a child. The jokes are funny, especially the inside joke starring John Lithgow.

In this episode, "Goodbye, My Friend," Liz tries to adopt a child off a teen who works at a donut store. Kenneth comes up with the idea to celebrate Tracy's and Jenna's birthday on the same day much to the dismay of Jenna. Finally, Jack convinces Frank to go to law school though Frank's mother thinks else wise.

Overall, this is actually a much better episode than I thought it would be, based off reading the synopsis. As always, the jokes effectively carry the show. I rate this episode 9/10.
