The Continuation of Jack's Daddy Issues!
24 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-first episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it's a very good episode, better than the previous episode. It is really funny and the cultural references are genius, especially to those regarding the Sims and the 2008 hit musical, Mamma Mia! We also get a surprise appearance in Alan Alda, Jack's biological father. Alda does a very good job in this role.

In this episode, "Mamma Mia," Jack pulls a Mamma Mia when he learns of three men who could be his possible father and he invites them to New York as winners of a TGIS contest. Meanwhile, Tracy introduces his biological son to the crew and Liz believes that Tracy is being conned by him. Finally, Jenna invites Liz to a photo shoot.

Overall, this is a very good episode and it nicely sets up the season finale. I liked all the subplots, especially Tracy's which is really funny. I did find Jack subplot's to be somewhat emotional. A very strong episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
