'New Girl' recap: Career Opportunities

It’s a new year, Newbies, and Jess & Co. had to look back in order to move forward on Tuesday night. Given this season’s unfortunate stasis thus far, it was only appropriate that “Clavado En Un Bar” (named after the song that closed out the ep) was predicated upon a scenario that could have been a total game-changer, at least in Jess’s mind, but it ultimately resulted in the gang mostly resisting any sort of forward movement.

Sure, the ep had its moments (“this crazy English muffin we call Winston’s life,” a recurring visual gag involving African-American newborns and basketballs, Nick’s habit of quoting sports movies like… A League of Their Own), but season 3 has yet to recapture last spring’s magic or sense of character development. That said, tonight’s installment opened and closed many doors for the characters, so maybe it will ultimately set up a bit of momentum so that New Girl can close out the season on better footing. Until then… read on to find out about Jess’s potentially life-changing opportunity.  READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' recap: 'Men! Men! Men! Oh, my cowman hat!'

Hello, Newbies! I’ll be subbing in for Lanford this week as she is jet-setting to her family home for Thanksgiving and I’m home alone with my cats. I like to think I’m whimsical like Winston with Ferguson — although I draw the line at taking showers with a cat. Let’s recap!

It’s the third Thanksgiving for the New Girl gang and a lot has changed — last year, Nick fell for Jess’s mom played by the incomparable Jamie Lee Curtis. Now, Coach is back, Schmidt is out of the apartment (but just down the hall), and Nick and Jess are together. Not just together, they’re co-hosting Thanksgiving dinner. Coach confronts Nick with the Thanksgiving Feast e-vite featuring Roger the trumpeting turkey. Nick denies having a part in creating it, even though he totally voted #TeamRoger to be the National Thanksgiving Turkey.

'New Girl' recap: Coach and Cece see Sparks, Schmidt suffers a net loss

And so we’re back to the drawing board, Newbies. All that hope I had last week now seems slightly too optimistic, no? To put it in thematically appropriate basketball terms, “Longest Night Ever” was an air ball: It felt very much like the writers realized they now have a six-person ensemble and, instead of building on the strength of the group, they did anything possible to split it up. As a result, what could have been a game-winning free throw was instead a whoosh and a whaaaa? READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' recap: You Better Work, Beach

Any doubts I had about Coach and/or Damon Wayans Jr. reassimilating into the show’s ecosystem? Gone. “Menus” was classic New Girl: Stupid, silly, glorious. If for nothing other than the “Work Bitch” workout montage (see below), this week’s episode wasn’t just a return to form. It was an elevation. It was also proof that this show is always, always better when it’s about the ensemble. Every person — even Winston! — had a specific, discrete part in the action, and I loved every second of it. So before I get to work (bitch), YOU get to work, Newbies:


'New Girl': 5 things we'd like to see from Damon Wayans Jr.

Now that Damon Wayans Jr. has signed on for the rest of this season of New Girl, we can safely look forward to even more Coach — and even more opportunities for Damon Wayans Jr. to do his thing. And by “thing,” well, we mean the five following Wayans Jr.-isms we’d love to see him pull off during his extra guest starring time: READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' recap: Coach Returns

The name “Coach” worked on many levels in Tuesday’s episode. Relationship Coach, specializing in how not to treat your girlfriend. Basketball Coach, with an emphasis on how to grind Winston’s gears. Strip Club Coach, expertise: how to spend your Bunny Money (okay, that was more Winston’s forte). Suffice it to say, Coach is not just a beloved ’90s sitcom anymore. And that’s just the tip of the Damon Wayans Jr.-shaped iceberg, Newbies. While you debate in the comments whether Coach’s return measured up to expectations, I shall get to the recapping.

'New Girl' recap: Your Keaton Heart

Trick or treat, Newbies? As it turned out, a little bit of both. I’ll admit a good portion of this week’s episode felt like an apple bobbing around on the surface, but when that last scene came… let’s just say there are ripples in store. Sure, there’s not a lot of physical distance separating Schmidt from the loftmates as we move forward, but it’s clear he’s establishing plenty of emotional distance. How much? Enough for Coach to jump right back in there and create a big ol’ ruckus. All told, tonight wasn’t actually another filler episode — it set up the trajectory that will take us all the way to New Girl‘s midseason finale… and maybe beyond. Color me intrigued.
