Starting To Go On A Roll!
19 August 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The third episode in the series finally reaches it's potential after the first two ho-hum episodes. This episode is actually funny through out with some funny jokes and how people handle some really crazy situations. The acting gets better especially with Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan. As usual, Alec Baldwin is a beast! I also like how we get more personal with each characters as they get away from work.

"Blind Date" is about how Jack sets up Liz a date with his friend Thomas, but Thomas ends up being a lesbian. Liz takes it very well as she starts to hang out with her. Meanwhile, a weekly poker tournament goes from friendly to competitive.

Overall, this is a very funny episode. I loved how some of the minor characters got some attention this go around. This is the kind of episode I like to see with each episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
