We had two returns to celebrate tonight, Newbies! First (and most importantly) FURGUSON! Oh yeah, and a financially ruined Schmidt is moving back into the loft. Also, Abby’s moving out. So much has changed, so much has stayed the same… READ FULL STORY
Tag: Linda Cardellini (1-4 of 4)
Now this was an episode. I know the reaction to Abby has been mixed, but I liked how she spiced up the dynamic in “Sister II.” No doubt she’s annoying and self-obsessed — like, well, everyone else on this show at times — and despite the fact she is actually dangerous to be around (Sky Knife!), the gang needed a jolt. You can’t say that she hasn’t provided one. That it will likely be temporary is good, but that it happened at all is an improvement in my book.
Also, WINSTON!!! The writers managed to do what has heretofore eluded them by giving him a primary story line that showed substance beyond a new set of tics. Yet the episode also allowed Lamorne Morris to run wild with his brilliant improv skills — the very ones that have made him my favorite character in season 3 in spite of Winston’s flimsy character development. Tuesday’s episode inched him a step closer to being fully fleshed-out.
So let’s not delay anymore, Newbies! READ FULL STORY
Poor Winston! He was so excited about his “meet my friends” dinner with his weird new girlfriend Bertie (Jessica Chaffin), and everyone totally bailed on him — well, everyone except Coach and Cece, who couldn’t think of anything better to do until they realized they could do each other (or try, at least). Bad form, gang. “Sister” challenged a lot of bonds, both in and out of the immediate friend group, but I can’t really say it moved all that much forward. The only exception: We should be getting a lot of backstory on Jess now that her sister Abby (Linda Cardellini) is set to stay for a while — hopefully Abby turns out to be a less bats–t-crazy sis than Caroline Sackler. Now to the business of how the New Girl gang got a new loftmate… READ FULL STORY
Still don’t a give a damn ’bout your bad reputation?
Sigh! Neither do we. Though Freaks and Geeks was cancelled after 12 episodes, we’re still not over NBC’s cult hit about Michigan teens in 1980.
Thankfully, neither are The Fine Brothers — who have created an interactive YouTube game in the style of 8-bit video games and Choose You Own Adventure books. In other words: It is freaking awesome. The game takes place at William McKinley High School, where Lindsay Weir, in signature Army jacket, must choose between team Millie and the Mathletes or team Daniel and his crew on the patio. Choose wisely, lest you risk social suicide.
Their game even caught the attention of Freaks and Geeks creator Paul Feig:
