Cutbacks (#3.17)
29 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The show is facing some budget problems and cutbacks need to be done. This results in lots of firing and Kenneth works as Jack's assistant now that Jonathan is gone. He asks Tracy to feed his bird but not to go into his room, so Jenna and Tracy assume he is a serial killer. Liz tries to use her sexuality to save the crew.

A good episode, but lesser quality than most of the show. My favorite part was Kenneth talking like a serial killer. And the twist in the Liz story was pretty good.

But for the most I didn't like the story of the bird. I just don't laugh at animals being killed and I still don't get what was the reason for that gas in Kenneth's room. And the ending was kind of clumsy to me.
