30 ROCK “It’s Never Too Late For Now” Review

30 ROCK "It’s Never Too Late For Now" Season 5 Episode 15 – After her break up with Carol in last week’s brilliant installment, Liz has embraced spinsterhood. She has bought a cat, named it Emily Dickinson, bought a fanny pack, a chip clip and joined a book reading club reading Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express.

Meanwhile Jack has to handle an overpriced babysitter and in Tracy’s absence and Pete and Frank join a band.
