30 Rock Review: "Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter"
Coke vs. Pepsi. Chicken vs. Fish. Yankees vs. Red Sox. "Lee Marvin vs. Derek Jeter." For Jack Donaghy, his love for Avery and Nancy boils down to these age-old debates.
Which woman does he want to be with? It's like choosing one of the above options ... each represents something so different, yet so desirable. His heart yearns for both.
Doesn't everybody's yearn for Derek Jeter, though? Is this really that tough?
While not our favorite episode of all time, we do enjoy both Elizabeth Banks and Julianne Moore, and the idea that Jack is smitten with two attractive, different ladies.
He definitely has a tendency to branch out, that's for sure. Speaking of branching out, as in out of her comfort zone, Liz Lemon has been hitting the singles scene. Hard.
At the YMCA.
Jenna accompanied her, naturally, totally not out of moral support. Does Jenna ever do anything out of moral support, and would we love her as much if she did?
Jack ponders life with Avery ... and Nancy. Then Avery, then Nancy ...
While Liz is out on her campaign to meet someone and engaging in the usual activities - dodgeball, wine, cheese, fart suppression - Toofer quits the writing staff at TGS.
He bails because he believes he's only there because of affirmative action, prompting the predictable hilarious comments from Tracy and an interesting revelation by Liz.
This was only half (the funnier half, it turned out, if only because it came first) of last night's 30 Rock double feature, continuing in "Khonani," which we'll review shortly.
