Liz Lemon, the sexy comedienne played by Tina Fey in NBC's 30 Rock, knows a foolproof way to get out of jury duty every single time her number is up. It involves a Princess Leia costume and a dash of mind control; if you missed it, you'd better check out this 7-second video dose of hilarity. In fact, last Thursday's episode "Believe in the Stars" was loaded with sci-fi references: In it, unkempt writer Frank sports a giant "ALIEN ABDUCTEE" hat, and movie star Tracy Jordan admits he watched nine episodes of Boston Legal before he realized it was not the new Star Trek. Whoops! Happens to the best of us, I suppose ....Thanks to YouTube user ninjamoke for the clip.
I only recently caught up with 30 Rock (Netflix has the first two seasons in their "Watch Instantly" section), and *yes* it was the whole Palin SNL thing that made me give it a second look, but I had tried it when it first debuted and for some reason didn't get hooked.
Now I am TOTALLY HOOKED! Liz Lemon is the geek-queen of us all.
