New Girl – Basketball (S3, Ep12)

I really enjoyed this week’s episode as it included a nice balance of everybody. Adding e3b5027720543b7a.newgirlCoach back could have been a major issue, but they’ve been handling the screen time well.

Everybody wasn’t ridiculous and over the top, which was a nice break from crazy Winston and wacky Coach. They all seemed more or less grounded.  It was a great way to explore the fact that Coach is more of a ‘dude’ then the other guys by getting Jess involved. While his personality shifts here and there, overall it has stay pretty intact and the combination of all the different sides works here.

Jess and Nick are weird, but it’s funny as was demonstrated in their sexy dancing and team fued.  All of the sexless nights brought on by a sports rivalry is both hilarious and realistic. Going back and forth from Bulls to Pistons and Nick not allowing her in the bed was a pretty great gag. It was, of course topped by Nick’s need to develop his throw away camera selfies.

Winston at Schimdt’s work place fell a little flat, even though it brings us to his desire to be a cop.  On the other hand, Schmidt and old Ed was pretty entertaining. Sure it was newgirl-ep313_tbd-sc19_0495predictable that Ed was going to steal the micro-marketing idea, but it all played out to our advantage.  I hope that he becomes our favorite Hebrew’s new mortal enemy. I’d be up for that. Old versus young. Schimdt versus the Warden/General Collins.

Other thoughts:

  • Cece working at the bar makes it so much easier for her to be involved in all of their conversations.
  • Coach and Nick’s conversation about the things in their heads that Jess would like was the highlight for me.
  • Jess is right. It should basketsball.
  • Anything involving Jess watching with Coach was really funny. Her cheering and commenting was pretty excellent.
  • Who knew Powerpoint could be so funny?! (I mean, I guess I knew. Never thought about it)
  • Jess’s description of her way in with all the guys was pretty dead on.

I’m pretty happy post new year with New Girl. How about you?

Keep on Watchin’!
