This season’s penultimate episode really felt like a moment to breathe, didn’t it Newbies? With last week’s major gearshift in play and next week’s season finale in the wings, it was nice to have the chance to process. Even better, this moment was accompanied by some unexpected sweetness from Nick and a reminder that Jess is more than just an object to be desired — not to mention some independent romantic developments between Cece/Shivrang and Schmidt/Elizabeth that will make next week’s wedding-stravaganza more complicated and dynamic.

Last night’s flashback-tastic New Girl episode, “Virgins,” was a treasure trove of music to set the mood — some songs more successfully than others — as the loftmates looked back on their first sexual encounters. Anchoring the eclectic mix (which ranged from Sublime to Boyz II Men and even figured in Lisa Loeb), Ellie Goulding’s “Anything Could Happen” kicked in during a fan-fulfilling scene between Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel).
It got us thinking of some of our favorite first-time anthems from shows of yore. Below, our ultimate Spotify playlist of coupling tracks! READ FULL STORY
All right, Newbies, as I suspected many weeks back, tonight’s episode was a doozy. Without further delay, we’ll get into it a little bit early so we can enjoy all the regrettable decisions, overly liberal lubrication, and intentionally awful wigs (oh the wigs!). But first, SPOILER ALERT! For everyone who hasn’t seen “Virgins,” stop reading now. For those who have, let’s get it on — and be sure to check out my behind-the-scenes interview with Jake Johnson and Liz Meriwether
later tonight after the west coast catches up. Onward! READ FULL STORY
It’s well-established that She & Him songbird Zooey Deschanel doesn’t need the assistance of Auto-Tune. All due respect to her hilarious New Girl co-stars, but they have certainly reaped the benefits of in this exclusive DJ John Boswell’s pitch-perfected mash-up of season 2 lines.
Just like the series itself, “Kiss Me Like a Man” is at turns hilarious and sexy. It tells the story of roomfriends Jess (Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) but has plenty of laugh-out-loud diversions courtesy of Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris), and Cece (Hannah Simone) — not to mention gone-but-not-forgotten characters Trench Coat Nick and Jess as a Kenyan Olympic runner. Watch below. READ FULL STORY
Here we are again, season finale time is kicking off. It seems like just yesterday that we were anticipating Revolution, excited for season 2 of Once Upon a Time, and wondering what Lena Dunham would bring us on new episodes of Girls. Oh, the passing of time. Now’s the time to catch up on The Following, Happy Endings, and The Americans (before their season finales this week)! Here’s how else to fill your pop culture desires this week: READ FULL STORY
With the exception of Schmidt’s ex-girlfriend, almost nobody got what they wanted tonight, Newbies. I personally could have done with a little bit more Alfredo, but we can’t have it all, can we? That seems to be the overarching message as the season winds down. That and the fact that what we want is not always right for us. This notion came starkly into play as Cece continued to force a marriage to Shivrang — a man whose name she doesn’t even know how to pronounce. Indeed, Cece’s butchering of her fiancé’s name was just one of the things that went wrong during a surprise bachelorette party thrown by Jess. Others included the dissemination of a picture of Nick’s penis, Winston’s overzealous attitude toward a kidnapping scheme, and Schmidt’s spitefully foolhardy attempt to make Cece jealous by lining up a date to Cece’s wedding. So let’s begin, shall we? READ FULL STORY
So it wasn’t exactly an ends-in-fireworks first date, was it Newbies? But were you really expecting that? Tonight’s episode of New Girl had a lot to say, not just about Jess and Nick’s relationship, but about the relationships of all the loftmates. It’s a fragile ecosystem — one that can be thrown off-kilter by a lusty gaze or a missing phone charger… which is exactly where the episode began. (For those who haven’t seen the episode yet, read no further: SPOILERS AHEAD!) READ FULL STORY
For a while, it seemed like New Girl‘s Jess and Nick needed all the help they could get to realize how great they’d be together. They’re a little more clued into their compatibility now, but Jess can still use your help getting to her first date with Nick.
To promote New Girl‘s special Thursday timeslot this week, Fox has created a Facebook game called “First Date Dash” (in honor, of course, of Jess and Nick’s first date that we can’t wait to see in this week’s episode). EW can exclusively tell you Newbies that the game launches today on the show’s Facebook page. Check it out here.
In the game, players must use their arrow keys to collect heart icons and maneuver Jess on the road to the finish line, where Nick is waiting for her. Naturally, the road isn’t without some obstacles (the feeling stick, puppy in a cup, etc.), placed there by Schmidt and Winston, the roommates who are not too keen on having a romantic couple in the loft.

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Mad Men' premiere, 'New Girl' features a special date, and 'Jurassic Park' returns to theaters
Early April is one of entertainment’s awkwardly quiet down times, in which the summer blockbusters aren’t out yet, television shows are winding down but not quite at their finales, and most new albums are awaiting a release. But that doesn’t mean that your week has to be boring. You still have some great options. Unless, of course, you don’t think that the premiere of Game of Thrones, the return of New Kids on the Block, and the re-release of Jurassic Park in 3-D are great …
