|I'm loving Nick and Jess's romance. I think writers are handling their relationship perfectly in this season. Love them more and more! I agree about the other aspects of this show. Winston (Lamorne) deserves WAY better. He is such a great actor. And Winston is a superb character, so funny and awesome. Why writers refuse to give him a better storyline is beyond me. Cece (Hannah) deserves better also. And I still think Coach isn't needed. Schmidt is lacking in charm/substance this season.||◤||
|I've felt the same way about other shows. Once the excitement is gone, it's gone. Sometimes you just fall out of love with a show. Don't force yourself to keep loving something if the feeling's not there anymore. Why would you put yourself through that? TV is supposed to be an enjoyable experience. If it's making you miserable, stop watching and move on!||◤||
It’s not about forcing myself to love it, it’s more like hoping that it returns to being the great show it was in its first two seasons. And I have this annoying habit of wanting to watch something until the end. It’s the same for me with Castle right now. I don’t love it like I used to, but I wanna know how it all ends.
I’m so happy for the cast and crew (re: renewal). This is great and they deserve this so much.
But you wanna know something awful? I read the news about S4 and I felt next to nothing. :-/ Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy we’ll get another season but I wasn’t, like, ecstatic or anything, you know? And I hate that. How did this happen? Where’d my excitement go? I want it back.
Why did this happen? The sad fact is: the episodes this season haven’t made me laugh nearly as much as seasons 1 and 2. It’s just not even close. I thought I watch mainly for Nick and Jess and except for a few bits here and there, I love how they’re being written. But it turns out that I really don’t enjoy the show as much when the rest of the characters aren’t working for me. Schmidt is awful this season. Abby was super annoying. Coach… while I’ve warmed up to him, I still wish he’d leave. Cece seems to be just… there. And they keep treating Winston horribly.
It’s like Jess said: “There’s no ‘us’ without Schmidt and Winston”. I love Nick and Jess dearly, but to me this is still an ensemble show. And I wish they’d start respecting the other characters more.
I haven’t re-watched an episode in a while and that makes me so sad.
I don’t wanna fall out of love with this show, because that’d also mean I’d be disconnected from this wonderful fandom and that’s the last thing I want.
I wanna feel better about this whole thing. :-/

|++ It's no easy to write a good long-term relationship on a sitcom like Friends did and like New Girl is doing, in my opinion. Not everyone is interested in watching a couple be happy and discover themselves little by little, and I think is interesting how the writers are getting them right.||◤||
It’s definitely not easy to write a relationship and keep it interesting. I think New Girl’s doing fine, but I also understand why others feel differently and like the will-they-won’t-they more. It’s a matter of preference in the end and the writers can’t please everyone.
|I think finally new girl is becoming a normal fandom, but people are seeing this as a bad thing. I come from fandoms where not everyone agree on a couple, ai episode by episode everyone ha a different opinion... Some loved, some liked, others hated it. It happens. It's just that here we're so spoiled by season 2 where everything was perfect and everyone agreed on everything and Nick and Jess were in the "easy" phase to write... And now they are on the hard phase. ++||◤||
Oh I’m fine with people disagreeing. In fact, it makes a fandom experience a lot more interesting. As long as everyone’s being respectful of each other, it’s all good. :)
|Nick's feet though... ewwww||◤||
Definitely. Feet gross me out even when they’re clean, so this was just disgusting.
|Maybe its because besides Nick and Jess the other characters aren't handled so well. I still get excited for the show, but its frustrating me how Schmidt still hasn't reformed and that Cece might take him back and Winston still has nothing to do||◤||
Yeah that’s definitely part of it. I’m just not seeing much character growth and/or development. Winston is barely even a character. They just adjust his “character” to whatever story they wanna force on him. It’s just really unfair to Lamorne.

Well, this wasn’t my favorite episode. Unfortunately my excitement for New Girl has weakened a little. Let’s just say I don’t get up at 3AM in order to watch it live anymore. I’ll have to think about why exactly that is.
Let’s talk about the episode.
— D I S L I K E D —
Cece & Schmidt
Looks like they’re gonna be back together before this season is over. I guess they can be awful to each other as much as they want because they’re both stupid enough to keep coming back for more. I don’t even know what to say about that relationship anymore.
Nick & Jess
I like what this episode set up, but I hate how they got there. I feel like Jess gets insecure about her relationship way too fast. And over Abby/Schmidt?! Gimme a break. She should’ve laughed in their faces.
Kudos to Lamorne for not leaving the show. His talent is being wasted and I don’t know how he can stand it. He could’ve spent the week at the gym instead and it literally would’ve been the same result. It’s just laughable.

Jess alone. That was fun. I laughed out loud when she yelled at that young woman in the elevator: “THIS IS YOUR FLOOR, MA’AM!” And that whole sequence at the hotel. Hysterical. Jess alone was fun in “Cooler” too. I do it for Kenyaaaaaaaa! *thud* I could watch 22 minutes of Zooey Deschanel just doing stuff like that. She’s so underrated.
Cece and Coach. Now that is how they’re doing that relationship right. They’re very entertaining as friends. Love it. Keep it up!
I like where things are going for Nick and Jess. Let’s really put that relationship through the wringer and see if they win or fail. Overcoming obstacles is what really makes a relationship stronger. Can’t wait to see what happens.
Abby is gone. Finally.
