TV Geek Out 69: 30 Rock, "Flu Shot"

Leave it to 30 Rock to find the funny side of rationed health care, hypocrisy and elitism with "Flu Shot." Liz wants to be liked by The Girlie Show's crew -- and for one brief, sneezing moment when she turns down the flu shot offered her, she is -- but not as much as she wants to go to St. Bartleby's to eat soft-serve ice cream on the beach while wearing dark socks. Meanwhile, Jack wants to take Elisa out on the town, but the fact that she works at night hinders those plans (but only for a moment). With the return of Dr. Spaceman, zombie-like flu-ridden coworkers, a fabulous montage of Jack and Elisa's night out and a very awkward dance courtesy of Liz Lemon, "Flu Shot" offered plenty of healthy discussion for the TV Geek Out Geeks.

Check it out here.
