Goofs

Toward the beginning of the episode, when Liz has having a flashback to a "Laugh-In" episode that featured Richard Nixon, the actor portraying the former president walks onstage saying, "Pardon me," several times to which one of the cast responds, "You were already pardoned." President Ford's pardon of Nixon did not come until September 8, 1974, 16 months after the "Laugh-In" finale that aired May 14, 1973. See more »

Fantastic Episode!
16 July 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the fourth episode of the second season of 30 Rock, and it is utterly fantastic. It vastly improves from the last episode, but like the last episode, this episode features a very funny guest star. This time, the cameo appearances in the form of none other than Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. She was hilarious and I loved how she spoofed Star Wars with her famous quote, "Help Me, Liz Lemon. I'm you're only hope!"

In this episode, "Rosemary's Baby," Liz goes to a book signing of a comedy writer from the 1960's whom she idolizes. After Rosemary was hired, no one agrees with her ideas and eventually both Liz and Rosemary are fired. Meanwhile, Jack has to stop Tracy from dogfighting and Jenna almost starts a trivia war between Kenneth and his rival.

Overall, this is an excellent episode and Carrie Fisher's cameo is one of the early highlights for this second season. One thing I've noticed and that is how the guest stars have a higher pedigree this season. But I think that is a good thing. I rate this episode 9/10.
