Storyline

On show night, Liz Lemon grows increasingly infuriated when no one seems to remember that it's her 40th birthday. Just before the taping, Tracy Jordan becomes convinced that nothing is funnier than a performer laughing and breaking character, which he elects to do all night, much to Jenna Maroney's chagrin. Meanwhile, Jack Donaghy struggles with the consequences of his promise to give up drinking while Avery is pregnant. Written by NBC Publicity

The writers and crew really showed there muscles
15 October 2010 | by (Lake erie, Ohio) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this was like watching a complex dance choreographed to near perfection. Kennith was brilliant as was the crews moving the sets and cameras, the timing was critical and they nailed it.

The episode it self and main cast were SNL pros as always making sure to cater to the camera, made for a interesting mix of SNL and sitcom, Overall i think they did a great job, was the best episode in a while and it wasn't because of the storyline, the Entire cast made it work, just wish it was longer.

Lets hope this causes some kinda spin offs on shows like law and order or CSI lol.
