Let’s talk about New Girl- Julie Berkman’s Older Sister

Yes. So good. Thank you, New Girl gods for getting it right. SO right. The guys off doing their sponge thing. The girls off meeting Jess’s dad’s new girlfriend. It was great.

I love Rob Reiner as Bob. He fits in so nicely with the rest of these idiots and he is perfect for Jess’s dad. I’ve always believed that. Kaitlin Olson as his new, much younger girlfriend? Even better. She killed it. Her past with Jess and Cece was hilarious. The proposal– Jess lying limp in her father’s arms while holding up the ring– so good.

Schmidt’s off at work trying to win a sponge account. And he’s not doing so great. He’s Schmidt, of course he’s not doing great. But, he’s brought he guys in for some brainstorming and then some focus group rigging. And he still fails miserably. Schmidt and Nick were on fire this episode, though. Now that they’re sharing a room, things have gotten a little heated. It’s like they’re back in college. But it’s worse because they’re grown ass men. It’s Nick’s slovenly ways, though, that inspires Schmidt and wins him the sponge account. So, all’s well that ends well.

Sometimes, this show makes me laugh so hard. And other times it makes me cringe. Last night’s episode was a good one. It had me laughing, for sure. I must say, a lot of that credit goes to Schmidt and Nick. They’re too good together. Put them in any scene, playing off of each other, and I’m done for.

Let’s talk about New Girl- Dice

I’m not going to lie, I was a little distracted last night, so this won’t be very long or in depth at all.

I never realize how much I love the Jess-Schmidt dynamic until they have a separate storyline from the rest of the group. I love them together. They’re so different, so they are always so funny. Schmidt coaching her through Dice (which is basically just Tinder) was great because we all know that’s not the type of girl Jess is. However, it’s exactly the kind of man Schmidt is. I don’t know, I just love the two of them together, causing trouble.

I didn’t really care about the other four, though. The getting Coach high for the first time story just wasn’t funny to me. It could have been, but something about it didn’t make me laugh. I can’t pinpoint it. Although, high (same as drunk) Nick Miller is THE BEST. He’s so freaking funny.

Last week reminded me of season 1/early season 2 New Girl, but last night was like late season 2/season 3. It just didn’t stand up. We’ll see how the rest of the season plays out, though.

Let’s talk about New Girl- The Last Wedding

Um, I didn’t realize how much I missed these fools until they were back on my screen causing a ruckus. I laughed SO much during this episode and it just made me so happy. Season 3 was rough. I think everyone can agree to that. Nick and Jess may be meant to be, but not now. Man, they both have a lot to do before they can even think about settling down with anyone, let alone each other. That’s okay. I want to watch that ride.

I was pleasantly surprised by Jessica Biel, guys. She was hilarious and a perfect person to go head to head with Jess. Reid Scott could have been utilized a little more. I feel like he was just there. And he is SO good in Veep and My Boys. He could have fit right in. But, I get it, last night’s episode wasn’t about Jess and Ted. It was about Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, Cece, and Coach.

FINALLY! I love when the group is an actual group. I loved early season one when every episode would end with them all together. We got that last night and I feel like we have a lot more of that to look forward to. I hope so. That is what made me fall in love with the show in the first place.

We got some good group action for sure, but we also got some AMAZING Nick and Schmidt scenes. Those are my favorites, right behind the group ones. Nick and Schmidt, Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield, are so funny together. They have some real comedic chemistry and it radiates on screen every single time. Last night, they were on fire and even though Schmidt didn’t get that four way, it’s probably for the best. Nick’s hoof hands and all.

Yeah, so last night was the twelfth and last wedding of the summer. Schmidt and Coach had a great summer, hooking up with girls, wedding after wedding. Winston, Nick, and Jess, though, had a bit of a dry summer and this wedding was the last chance for ALL of them to go home with someone. No one actually did, but they got to go home together with their newly returned and single friend, Cece.

I’m excited for season four. I can’t wait to see more of the group, more Cece and Schmidt(?), and how the Nick/Jess relationship is navigated.

Let’s talk about New Girl- Dance

The episode was so much fun. I loved that everyone had a role and that the guys are literally the dumbest boys in school. Coach was, as usual, awesome. I like Coach Coach and the fact that he works with Jess, so he really has an understanding of her and how she operates. It’s nice that one of the guys has that ability.

Nick, Schmidt, and Winston in the bathroom was awesome. It’s fun to see the three of them just being them. Which is the three of them being hilarious and stupid and mean to each other and just, all around, amazing. 

Like I said, it was a fun episode even though Jess and Nick are still suffering. They were able to touch upon that but still keep it light and focus on everyone. Just the way I like it.
