30 Rock is a fantastic television show. But 30 Rock's Liz Lemon is a developmentally stunted mess of a person, in some respects. Take, for example, her knowledge of child-rearing, as learned from The Sims.

The Maxis/Electronic Arts life simulation was name-checked on the most recent episode of the NBC comedy, one of the better video game-related cameos in recent memory. Certainly better than recent video game allusions from Ghost Whisperer and The Simpsons.

And they may have even worked in a little Donkey Kong joke, a warm up to let you know that video game jokes are incoming. Or do Italians smash barrels outside of the Mario universe in situations that I'm not aware of?
