This show. Seriously, just when I was starting to worry they were stretching out the Nick-Jess drama too much… DAMN. As in, “Damn, that was hot.” But also as in, “Damn you, fish tank!” Before we get into it, SPOILER ALERT!!! We’re putting up tonight’s recap a little early, so look alive, non-East Coasters and DVR dilly-dalliers. For everyone else, let’s do this. READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Zooey Deschanel (11-20 of 42)
Heeeeey girl, whatcha doin’?
If you’re Zooey Deschanel, the answer is hula hoopin’ and dreamin’ up nail-art concepts. Sitting down for April’s InStyle cover story, the New Girl star and She and Him chanteuse revealed that, though she’s a certifiable triple threat, her greatest talent might be hula hooping. She also shared the backstory behind her wacky red-carpet manicures and gave her two cents about Abby Elliott’s Saturday Night Live send-up “Bein’ Quirky With Zooey Deschanel.”
So, does Deschanel give Elliott’s impression a tuxedo-ed thumbs up or thumbs down? Find out in the video below. READ FULL STORY »
Hello, Newbies. I am your host today while my colleague Lanford Beard takes a well-deserved overseas vacation.
This latest episode of New Girl, “TinFinity” (I’ll explain that odd title in a moment), had the roomies at each other’s throats a little more than usual. There was plenty of drama and heartfelt moments, but of course still plenty of room for New Girl’s brand of quirky, ridiculous comedy. And the fallout (read: hilarity) after the Kiss continued.
Now, about that title: The episode kicks off with Schmidt pronouncing that they are coming fast upon his and Nick’s 10-year anniversary as roommates. READ FULL STORY »
So… that Jess-Nick weirdness? That residue of kiss-related awkwardness? Not. Going. Anywhere. Though they seemed mostly back to normal at the end of the last ep, it’s clear this problem will not resolve itself so easily. They’re going to have to face it head-on — a reality they continue to admit and then panic moonwalk away from. As such, this week’s installment was bookended by oodles of sexual tension. We’ve got a handful of episodes before the finale, Newbies, so nothing is going to happen quickly, and we’re indefinite stuck in this sexual perdition — the No-Nail Zone, as it were. Just as well, as there were much bigger fish to fry last night — at least in Schmidt’s head… READ FULL STORY »
This week picked up, like a bad hangover, the morning after that kiss. In a completely unsurprising development, Jess and Nick dissolved into grade-school antics when forced to confront the repercussions of their actions. They practically wiped boogers on each other at one point. But I kind of liked it. I knew they wouldn’t go from zero to “couple” in the space of one episode, and it was completely realistic for their characters. Elsewhere, Cece realized she wasn’t such a catch after all (at least in the Indian community), Schmidt uttered the words “I will Calcutt-a b—-” before making the boldest and most valiant move he’s ever made, romantically speaking (episode MVP!), and Nick sustained a lot of punches. A lot. But before that happened…
Does anyone not have a very strong opinion about Lena Dunham? The Golden Globes adore her edgy HBO comedy Girls. So does Jon Hamm. And Jon Stewart. And broke twentysomethings everywhere. And probably their parents, too. But in this week’s cover story, Dunham acknowledges that her show has also earned some haters, and she’s ready to respond to everyone from James Franco (who famously called Dunham out for “creating another show about white people… [set] in one of the most culturally mixed cities in the world”) to Barbara Walters (who said she found the show’s depiction of sex “shocking” and “depressing”). Other things she’s ready to reveal to senior writer Melissa Maerz? The story of The Great High School Cheese Puff Fiasco that helped shape her taste in comedy. The inspiration behind that amazing conversation about race that she had with Donald Glover on Girls. Oh, and what happened with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and that “middle school” comment.

From Ross and Rachel’s Central Perk lip-lock to Kate and Sawyer’s scorching smooch — as he was tied to a tree in a jungle of mystery! — TV’s given us plenty of memorable first kisses. And after last night’s New Girl, we can add one more to the list: Nick and Jess’s passionate embrace, which was hot enough to silence those who have complained that Zooey Deschanel’s character is just too precious and immature for a 30-something woman. [Sheepishly raises hand.]
Will Jess ditch sleepy-eyed Sam for her grumpy roommate? Will she and Nick spend next week’s episode pretending like their makeout session never happened? Will Nick ever get that awesome trenchcoat back? Since there’s no way to know as of now, let’s focus on one question we can answer: Precisely how many times did you watch and re-watch that blistering kiss? (And the tender one that followed. Awwwww.)
Way to not drag out the sexual tension between Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) for three more seasons, New Girl! As you probably just saw, after a year and a half of circling each other like awkward, depressed, and occasionally unstable sharks, Nick stunned the adorkable out of Jess’ face by planting a pretty damn hot kiss on her lips.

Rejoice, Newbies! Jess got her own douchebag jar! Well, technically it’s an Annoyance Bowl — which Nick finds much less satisfying, perhaps because of the sheer glee Jess displayed while putting money in the bowl — totally at odds with the intention of the bowl. Still, how did it take this long for Jess to get the bowl? The singing alone could have bought them all a nice dinner at Outback Steakhouse by now. But I digress… All the roommates’ quirks were on display last night. But only in Jess’s case did the story nearly end in murder… READ FULL STORY »
