30 Rock 610 Review- "What You Got Cooking?

Tracy- "The sight of these people, plus the crayons I ate earlier, make me sick."
"Alexis Goodlooking and the Case of the Missing Whisky" was yet another funny episode of 30 Rock's sixth season, filled with a number of hilarious one-off jokes.

Those stand alone quips are exactly what make 30 Rock so watchable even when it might fail to knock the episodic stories out of the park.  Jack helping Kenneth make it in this world, and Frank using Liz to hide the love affair with his former teacher, weren't all that inherently funny, but each had its share of laughs.

I loved that Jack did an entire speech on eye contact by using no words. His title was the best part! The fact that Kenneth's rival was four credits shy of a degree in Bro Studies at Syracuse was also good, but my favorite moment from that story had to be Jack's Family Matters reference.

As a child of the 90s I appreciate any mention of a series that once aired on TGIF, but the fact that he referenced Stefan Urquelle made it that much more amazing. Jaleel White must be the coolest dude in the world if he makes Stefan look like Steve Urkel.
To read the rest of my review of last night's 30 Rock, head over to TV Fanatic.
