The Bubble!
6 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fifteenth episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it's quite an amusing episode, especially as one realizes what the bubble means socially. The episode is once again funny and relies upon an excellent screenplay and great acting to tell its 20-minute story. Jon Hamm makes another appearance in the show and he does a good job.

In this episode, "The Bubble," Liz is concerned about her relationship when she figures out that her boyfriend is in the bubble thus making him vulnerable to the ways of life. Tracy's contract is up, so Jack decides to renegotiate which does not end well. Finally, Jenna decides to cut her hair for publicity purposes.

Overall, this is an enjoyable episode that has some good jokes. The subplot involving Liz and her boyfriend are my favorite. It's also nice to see Jack play some hardball with Tracy(and Kenneth), which results in some interesting scenarios. I rate this episode 9/10.
