Death Row: “30 Rock” To Werner Herzog

This was one of my favorite exchanges from one of last night’s two new (two new!) episodes of “30 Rock.” Jack: “I know it’s short notice, but I would consider it a personal favor after six years listening to you complain about how there so few women on death row.” Liz: “Is it a coincidence? Or is the system sexist?” In a much more serious vein, this is the kind of subject addressed by Werner Herzog in his death-row documentary “Into the Abyss.” The movie had a limited release in the U.S. in November, but I missed it. I hope it turns up on Netflix soon.
