Another Thursday means another all-new 30 Rock, and today, my fellow PopWatchers, you become men. Or something like that. In “Today You Are a Man” Liz Lemon’s incompetent agent, Simon, returned to tell her that her contract was about to expire. Jack had sent a new one for her to sign, but Lemon decided it was time to negotiate with the big boys. With help from Jack Donaghy’s own self-help tapes, Liz set out to get that 5 percent merchandising she deserves. What could possibly go wrong?
Meanwhile, Tracy and Jenna went to perform at their accountant’s son’s bar mitzvah. (Now everyone please stop what you’re doing and sing with me: “Werewolf bar mitzvah, spooky scary…”) It didn’t go so well, since Adam wanted Gina Gershon at his party, and not the C-list TGS stars. Not surprisingly, Tracy and Jenna were not good a reenacting transformers or the Fox football robot. It’s also worth noting that they did a terrible/amazing rendition of “What’s The Guy’s Name Who Plays First Base?” a.k.a. “Who’s On First?” to us commoners.
And our poor page Kenneth was upset because he’s underappreciated as the TGS page. They don’t even treat him like a dog! So he swapped page assignments with Hazel Wassername (Kristen Schaal). Hazel joined TGS, and Kenneth went to work for The Suze Orman Show. There, Suze convinced Kenneth to quit the page program to get a new job and make some real money. He doesn’t have any marketable skills other than being a page, but he’s a white male with hair. The sky’s the limit!
