We Meet Gavin Volure!
17 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourth episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it's a funny episode and an improvement over the last episode. We seem to be getting high-profile guest stars with each episode and it's turning to be a good thing. This week, we get funnyman Steve Martin who absolutely rocked his character. The subplots are hilarious so this happened to be a fun episode.

In this episode, "Gavin Volure," Liz thinks she found her soulmate when Jack introduces her to a former CEO who happens to be agoraphobic. But there is more to him than meets the eye. Also, Tracy believes his kids are trying to kill him when they spend more time with him which raises Tracy's suspicions.

Overall, this is a great episode thanks to the appearance of Steve Martin. As good as his subplot was, I really believe Tracy's subplot was the best. His paranoia was just too fun to pass up. A very good episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
