Above-standard laughs from 30 Rock
8 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Season 5 of 30 Rock was probably the best since season 1, and one of the best ideas developed last year was to give Jack a new nemesis for taking over his company. It's not a polished, ambitious gay man like Devon Banks (Will Arnett), but a seemingly typical teenage girl named Kaylie Hooper, played by Chloë Moretz. Having Jack battling a girl seems unusual, but Kaylie is not to be underestimated, having her own schemes and strategies. Their rivalry is between someone who worked his way to the top and someone supposedly entitled to power by blood, and I was wanting to finally see this again in season 6. Moretz plays the part well, balancing vicious and vulnerable, as Jack and Liz discuss.

Meanwhile, Kenneth appears to be on his way to the top, handling his new job as a censor so well he gets promoted (being a person obsessed with morality, he certainly fits in a family business). Jack had predicted in season 1 that Kenneth may take over in five years, and it might be happening now. If so, 30 Rock should be given credit for foreshadowing, and certainly this may be a good way to end the struggle between Jack and Kaylie- neither wins. In this episode, Kenneth comes into seemingly inevitable conflict with Liz. Also in this episode, Jenna finds six children born as a result of her egg donations.

There's some good laughs in the episode, including with Jenna's gun and Kenneth's inept failure to recognize Liz in costume. In general season 6 has been turning out nicely; if this is the last season, the show will have gone out with style.
