TV Geek Out 65: 30 Rock, "Senor Macho Solo"

30 Rock returned from the holiday break with "Senor Macho Solo," bringing new celebrity guest star Salma Hayek along as Colleen Donaghy's nurse Elisa. Unlike some of this season's other stunt casting experiments, Hayek fit in with the rest of the cast immediately, much like she did on her Ugly Betty stint a few seasons ago. The episode's other cameo was Peter Dinklage, who was equally charming and cranky as the man Liz Lemon meets when her baby craziness teeters on the edge of plain old insanity. Funny, romantic, and soundtracked by the timeless songs of Janet Jopler, this was one of 30 Rock's best episodes this season. The TV Geek Out Geeks are aggressive with a nerdy vibe, and they're not afraid to show it.
