"Season 4" was the episode that began the literal fourth television year of "30 Rock"
6 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'm now just starting to catch up on last season's "30 Rock" eps. In this one, Jack tells Liz to get a new cast member who appeals to middle America so Liz and Pete go to a new comedy club incognito but it arouses suspicions from their staff not to mention Pete's wife. Tracy finds out he needs to go back to his roots and Kenneth goes on strike when he finds out accidentally about Jack's bonus...Written by creator Tina Fey, there are plenty of hilarious, if silly, lines and situations that, as always, abound in these episodes. And Steve Buscemi makes a welcome return as Jack's lawyer. And so began the fourth season of "30 Rock"...
