One of My Favorites!
2 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourteenth episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it is an absolute gem. All the subplots are excellent, and every single joke works. My favorite joke involves the use of Scrabble letters and that joke alone provided enough laughs to last a lifetime. The screenplay is great, and as always: the acting is excellent.

In this episode, "The Funcooker," Liz has to go to jury duty and she sympathizes with the defendant as they both suffer from the same work problems. Meanwhile, Jack has all the writers coming up with a name for the new pocket microwave. Jenna is prescribed these drugs which keeps her awake all night and day. Tracy is fined for cursing on live TV.

Overall, this is a beauty and one of 30 Rock's best episodes. I loved all the jokes and the spoofs, especially the one involving Liz as Princess Leia. This is one instant classic. I rate this episode 10/10.
