30 Rock Review: "Senor Macho Solo" (Episode 307)

Unlike, say, Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek has been able to slip into the 30 Rock cast seamlessly. She's funny, easy on the eyes and a perfect foil to Baldwin's Jack as the nurse taking care of his ailing mother. Another welcome guest star was Peter Dinklage, from The Station Agent and Elf, as the nerdy/witty Stuart who would've been a great match for Liz Lemon had she not thought he was a little boy (Dinklage is 4' 5"). Liz's mouth is always her downfall, so she arranges a meeting on the Brooklyn bridge to decide if they still want to be together.

It was nice to be reminded of Liz's baby-cravings, a story that's been bubbling on the surface for a while now but reemerged here. The episode also featured one of the funniest sight gags in 30 Rock history (bold declaration, but I stand by it). Jack pulled Tracy into his office to voice his concern that he's spending too much money, and the camera cuts to Tracy wearing a ruffled coat made out of money and gold shoes. Later, he rocks out a Mad Hatter-like hat made out of money, as only Tracy could pull off.
