It seems like everything is getting better for Jess and Company. I mean, it looks like things are getting better for us as weekly viewers of Jess and Company.
Now that Damien Wayans Jr is joining the cast full time this season, the writers have more time to figure out how to integrate him back into the group. It worked better this week than last, but there is a still a way to go. Winston seems to be closer and closer to the margins of the show and with the reentrance of Coach, it seems they are going to need to reel him back before he’s obsolete.
While the small bits with Schmidt worked pretty well this week, something feels off with him not in the heart of all the action. I’m willing to see what the writers can do to incorporate him into the shenanigans while using his new apartment as a story point.
And what a weird Cece cameo this week. Still, it was pretty funny and might be setting something up with Coach and her? Who knows, but as long as Damien Wayans Jr gets to be hilarious, I’m in!
Jess’s scenes with the Chinese restaurant owner worked really well and the final scene on the beach was really elegant. It’s that moment in which Jess, wearing the hot dog hat, looks on at her boys, happy that they’re in her life. It’s why we watch this show.
Oh, and HUGE props for the Jason Street joke.
Keep on Watchin’!
