Trivia

The song "Mr. Templeton" - written and performed by Michael Bublé - is heard while Elisa takes her elderly patient along on her dates with Jack while she is supposed to be working. In the previous episode, 30 Rock: Señor Macho Solo (2009), Elisa calls Jack's CD collection embarrassing and says, "I didn't know Michael Bublé had so many albums." See more »

Goofs

It takes a minimum of two weeks for a flu shot to be effective against the virus. Getting a flu shot would not prevent someone from getting sick if they were exposed within that time period and it would not cure someone who was ill. Therefore, Jack offering a flu shot to Kenneth would be useless since he was already sick. See more »

That Back-Stabbing Liz!
24 November 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the eighth episode of the third season of 30 Rock and it's a pretty enjoyable episode. It was funny and it had a clever screenplay. The jokes were above-average and my favorite involved Liz believing her crew members were zombies. Salma Hayek makes a welcome return as Jack's love interest.

In this episode, "Flu Shot," Liz is dismayed when her beach vacation is canceled, but she sticks up for her crew and decides not to get the flu shot. However she changes her mind when she finds out it was not canceled after all. Meanwhile, Jack begins to date his nurse and he tries to make it work despite her working seven days a week. Tracy and Jenna decide to do something to cheer up the sick crew.

Overall, this is a rather good episode. It's another episode in which the self-centered Liz makes another appearance, and these appearances are always good to watch. I rate this episode 9/10.
