Welcome back Coach!
I am really excited to have Coach join back up with our favorite loft mates! Damon Wayans Jr is a huge asset for any show to have and we get him back on our favorite. While he was still written a little broad and a bit awkward fitting back in, the comedy was there and everything else will come with time. (Damon Wayans Jr is back for the whole season!)
Recently, I haven’t been onboard will all of the Jess/Nick storylines and this week was no exception. Nick’s immature nature, when hurting other people, isn’t as funny as when it’s self deprecating. Jess knows better than what he brings to the table, but the GF/BF titles we’re a weird thing to fight about when they had clearly made a decision. I understand that certain friends can bring something unlike yourself out in you (Coach bringing out the macho man in Nick was funny), but it doesn’t serve the comedy between Jess and Nick.
I’m sure we’ll get more with Coach and how he needs to reintegrate back into the group. Choosing to have him not be mad at everybody for kicking him out to make room for Winston and just plain forgetting Jess worked for his first time back. Hopefully his return doesn’t make Winston SUPER CRAZY.
But before I stop, I have to talk about how good Taye Diggs was playing a mockable version of himself. He nailed it and was the highlight of an above average episode.
Bring on more Coach!!!!!
Keep On Watchin!
