New Girl Feels

I could talk about this show all day son

FWIW, I still think New Girl is the literal greatest.

And this season has been a delight so far: great writing and delivery and a nice emphasis on the interpersonal dynamics and contrasts that are at the heart of the show. And hopefully I’m not alone. :) I’ve liked all three episodes. I can’t…

This is all SUPER valid!! Like, people are talking about how Nick’s regressing, but is he really regressing further than we’ve seen before? Like, there was a flashback at the beginning of the show of him sitting on the floor in a woman’s shirt crying, lol. He may be regressing now that Jess isn’t around, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before. That’s who Nick IS. But that doesn’t mean we can’t see him grow up over the course of the coming season.

It’s a different kind of regression though. Early Nick was sad, and drunk, and cried a lot. As one commenter on the AV Club site pointed out, lately Nick seems like the kind of person you pin their address to their clothes before you let them out of the house.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love the show and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season. I just think the show loses something by making Nick into Joey Tribbiani, instead of our beloved grumpy turtle face.

Yep, for me it’s more about tone than story development. He started as the straight man and now he is almost 100% comic relief, like a side character. At least he was in the last two episodes, it’s still too early to judge what they’re trying to do with him for the season. It’s very possible that they’re just letting him have fun with the guys right now, and then they’ll get to more interesting stuff later.

My thing is, I don’t need Nick to be in-your-face funny in every scene. That’s what Schmidt is for. I think Nick was the best when he spent most of the episode being the grounded character and then he’d just have one or two BIG comedy moments. Like being at odds with Schmidt all throughout “Models”, leading to the cookie scene. Being a listening ear for Jess all throughout “Halloween”, leading up to the haunted house scene. Dealing with Angie and Jess in “Cabin”, leading up to the absinthe scene. THAT’S the magic formula for Nick IMO. When he’s this seemingly normal guy who’s trying to hold it together, and the funny scenes are when that all falls apart.

What the heck is going on with Nick’s bed here?

The gang is frustrated when only one small spot in the loft has reception for their cell phones in the “Landline” episode of NEW GIRL airing Tuesday, Oct. 14 (9:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

But why is his bed nearer the window?

It’s also smaller. And his desk is gone. Did Schmidt do some organizing or something? lol

umm Nick and Jess acted more like exes before they were even together, i may be too impatient but their “peaceful” friendship is making me really upset ngl.

WHERE IS THE TENSION?

WHERE IS THIS?

I’m hoping Micro is gonna kickstart it all

I would love a jealous glance here and a some light sparring there, but I don’t want them to do too much. Jealousy can look ugly on a person. Not sure I wanna see New Girl go too far down that path. If Nick brought a girl home and said “in your face!” to Jess this season, I’m not sure it would go over as well as it did in S1. lol

Question: New Girl is off to a strong start this season – almost makes me forgive them for Season 3. Can you tease anything fun coming up? —Steve

Normally Jess + Winston + meth would have me worried, but since the meth is real this time, its a different deal. My first thought of the source would be one of Cece’s model friends. But then, hasn’t Rose been known to dabble?

Joking about something and showing them physically in possession of serious illegal substances are two ENTIRELY different things.  I don’t even need to go into details on how much it disappoints me that they think this is funny.

What about when Schmidt and Winston were close to actually purchasing crack?

Hmm, I hadn’t thought about Rose. That makes me think maybe the meth came from Jess’s school and she had confiscated it. Still doesn’t make much sense for it to be in the loft, though. 

Well, in all fairness, I didn’t love the crack thing either.  At least that was more a game of chicken though.  No matter how you’ve felt about their comments and actions in the past involving the IDEA of drugs, you have to admit that the fact that they actually HAVE meth in their loft and need to hide it is a pretty deep low point for these characters.

If it comes out that it’s there because one of them was planning to use it, I’ll totally agree with you. But based on the fact that this is network TV, and given the history of the show, I immediately assumed it’s there because of some sort of misunderstanding. 

I don’t think there’s any way Fox would let them get away with the characters keeping meth in the loft for their own personal use. Not after they had Coach exclaim “let’s never do drugs again” after eating pot brownies lol. My immediate thought was that it’s something they find rather than have.

Plus I don’t see Liz going there. It would be completely out of character, and there’s nothing funny about the characters owning heavy drugs. There IS something potentially funny about them getting thrown into a “it’s not what it looks like” situation right before a cop shows up.

I’d love for them to find a way to incorporate Nadia. I’d buy it being her.

Wouldn’t be surprised if the source is just some random though. With 5 single people in the loft, I’m sure it’s seeing plenty visitors these days.
