Storyline

Under pressure from deadlines, Liz's caustic wit is unleashed on her writing staff. Later she overhears them discussing her and is so upset that she first wants to fire one of them, then decides to reform her behavior and become a "nice" boss. Meanwhile Jack takes Tracy to a celebrity golf tournament so he can impress a billionaire whose children idolize Tracy; but the ploy backfires when Tracy feels like a token black among a sea of white faces.

Another Funny Episode!
8 February 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The fourteenth episode in the first season of 30 Rock is a delightfully funny episode. While it doesn't feature much in the spectacular department, I still think it's an above-average episode that has wit and plenty of charm thanks to a subplot involving a word that is taboo in network television, plus it is also an experience that Tina Fey came across when she was head writer at SNL.

This episode, "The C Word," is a pretty risky one. The main focus is on Tina Fey as she is being a bad boss because of stress and one of her writers calls her a nasty name. Meanwhile, Jack takes Tracy to a celebrity golf tournament where things turn sour after Tracy realizes he is the only black guy there.

Overall, this is a funny episode that has a surprising starring turn by Rip Torn and it was a hilarious one too. This show has plenty of clever jokes and all I can say is full steam ahead. I rate this episode 9/10.
