30 rock recapping: idiots are people two!

Previously on 30 Rock: Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

James Marsden

Liz is wiping her face and looking jolly, so I presume she’s eating something delectable. Well hello Kelsey Grammer! What are you doing here? There’s something wrong with Pete? Oh my. Liz runs to investigate and OH MY!

Cut to: Eight hours earlier.

Jenna needs a light bulb replaced and we discover Liz’s new man is James Marsden. HOTT! Oh and Tracy is of course stirring up some trouble. His newest offendees (not really a word, just go with it), the gays, the most organized of all groups (as explained by Liz). Jack propositions Liz with a FWB  offer to get her to expose the truth about her new man.

Jack is appalled by what he learns: jobless entrepreneur, living with Liz, spells his name Criss. Kenneth and Jenna break a whole box of mercury containing fluorescent light bulbs in Pete’s sleeping place. Pete, after downing scotch and sleeping pills retreats to his sleeping place (where he goes when shit is hitting the fan) not knowing about the mercury.

Denise Richards and Tracy Morgan

Tracy is organizing an idiot protest of NBC networks, since Liz offended him when issuing an apology to the gays. The idiot protests includes everyone from tramps, to investment bankers, to loudmouths, to Denise Richards. When Liz goes home for a nooner (pancakes for lunch in Liz’s book), a hallucination of Jack pops into the room and starts criticizing Criss. You can practically see Liz second guessing the relationship.

Back at work, she demands that Jack says he like Criss so he will no longer reside in her head and criticize Criss. When Jenna and  Kenneth go to clean up the Mercury mess they find Pete and panic. Jenna calls Kelsey Grammar to help them cover it up because who else would you call? Liz gets a video chat call from Criss who tells her he got an investor. When he holds up the check, Liz sees it’s from Jack. Dun Dun Dunnnn, TO BE CONTINUED…

Best/Funniest Moments:

  • Kelsey Grammer cameo
  • Liz asking the gays if she is pulling off her hat. They reply no.
  • Jack’s denunciation of Criss with an resounding “GOOD GOD!”
  • Favorite Gay Protest Signs: “My Wife doesn’t know I’m angry about this” and “We still watch Bravo, but that’s it, except for The Voice”
  • Favorite Idiot Protest Signs: “This Marker Smell Good” & “I Haz Protest”


Jenna: “Picking a lock is like riding a bike…they’re both skills you need to escape the Atlanta Falcons equipment room.”

Tracy: “Remember when I offended stubborn people? That took forever to sort out.”

Jack: “Is it a stupid name? Like Dakota or Barack?”

Liz: “My jaw stopped popping.” (Demonstrates)

tvdm box office picks: opening sept. 16th

Will’s Pick: Drive

Since Ryan Gosling is seemingly in a new movie every month it was only a matter of time before I picked a movie in which he was starring, in this case the movie is Drive. Carey Mulligan (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy) also have starring roles in the fast-paced action flick.

Driver (Ryan Gosling) is a professional stuntman by day and a “professional” getaway driver by night – I assume that explains the moniker. He doesn’t care what his employers are using his services to getaway from he only focuses on his expertise. I assume everything doesn’t run according to his plans because this movie would be more tutorial than potential blockbuster.

With the box office being held captive by the anti-human Contagion at the moment I don’t see an action film that isn’t starring “Autobots” or superheroes from the ranks of “Marvel” or “DC” taking over the reins immediately but it still looks like a solid action movie to start the Fall.

Nicole’s Pick: Straw Dogs

Straw Dogs is a remake of the 1971 film of the same name, which can mean either a colossal win or loss. The film stars James Marsden (X-Men, Sex Drive, Gossip, etc.), Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns, Rules of Attraction, The Horse Whisperer, etc.) and Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman from True Blood). This movie isn’t intended to be sexy, but what they have on their hands is a cast that provides eye candy for everyone. Thank you, sincerely.

Moving on to the plot, David (Marsden) and Amy Summer (Bosworth) are a married couple who move back to Amy’s hometown. Once there, Amy’s high school sweetheart, Charlie (Northman Skarsgård), tries to win her back and this is where the “thriller” portion of the movie kicks in. As David attempts to keep Charlie far, far away from his wife, the tension builds between the couple and the locals of their Mississippi home. Early reviews note that the violence of the original is still intact. And any Truebie knows that Skarsgård does violence very, very well. Straw Dogs isn’t going against any huge new openings this week and if you’re in the mood for guaranteed violence, this could be your best bet.
