Poor Liz Lemon. Nothing ever quite works out the way she imagines it, does it? In the teaser, Liz walks past a bookstore window and stops to admire a stack of her "Dealbreakers' books, happily tapping on the glass and telling the store clerk who she is. The guy, though, isn't really a fan of Liz's decree that if a guy is over 30 and still wears a nametag, well, that's a deal breaker. The nametag wearing book seller proceeds to rip the head off the cardboard Liz Lemon display and Liz is disappointed yet again.
That opening mirrors the way I sometimes feel about 30 Rock. I look forward to it all week long and then the episode somehow manages to rip my head off and disappoint me. But let's face it, I'm still going to stop and look in that metaphorical shop window again because I just cannot resist.
