30 Rock

The first episode of 30 Rock's long awaited third season is up a week early on Hulu:

The episode revisits one of the show's (and, apparently, Tina Fey's) running themes, that of Liz Lemon's single-woman baby fever. It's a solid entry and a nice starting point, but not as funny as the many series highs. The Emmy-winning season 2 finale "Cooter" is an excellent (and funnier) episode still available on Hulu.

As long as I'm finally posting Hulu clips, here's one from Episode 210, one of my favorites from last season. Here, Liz becomes anxious when she doesn't hear back from the board of an apartment building she's interested in:

I wish I could also post the bizarre and wonderful musical number from the end of 210, but that clip isn't available and the full episodes don't go back that far.

And, of course, here is Alec Baldwin's tour-de-force from another favorite episode, "Rosemary's Baby."
