What’s it about
The sixth season of sitcom 30 Rock dives into a kind of pop surrealism beyond any other show on television. Consider the episode “Leap Day”: Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), the head writer of a Saturday Night Live-esque sketch comedy show, discovers that there’s a holiday tradition she’s never heard of in which Leap Day William, a blue-suited and white-mustachioed bald man, rises from the depths of the Marianas Trench to trade children’s tears for candy. Through this episode, Liz and narcissistic Jenna (Jane Krakowski) compete to sleep with a billionaire, high-powered executive Jack (Alec Baldwin) has a rhubarb-induced hallucination that mimics A Christmas Carol, and the ever-erratic Tracy (Tracy Morgan) tries to use up a $50,000 restaurant gift card before it expires, but it’s the increasingly unnerving figure of Leap Day William–who goes from preposterous to downright frightening–who will haunt you for weeks after watching the show.
