The actual birthday video and whole scene in the theater was really sweet.

Most of these post-Super Bowl episodes have been terrible examples of their series. Last year's episode of Elementary following the SB was probably the worst in the show's history. The networks purposely pick episodes that need as little context as possible, in the hopes new viewers will get hooked.

But that Grey's Anatomy one with Coach Taylor was pretty good. When the show was actually decent.

The episode of Alias that aired after the Superbowl was one of the best of the show. It was actually a pivotal episode that the whole series up to that point had been building towards.

Having Prince show up as himself sounds pretty stupid, like the Friends post Super Bowl with Jean-Claude Van Damme.

I actually like it when networks use the post-super bowl slot to launch a new show. Airwolf, The Wonder Years, Family Guy, American Dad!, Undercover Boss. They all debuted after the game. The A-Team's first episode after the 2-hour pilot did as well.

New Girl is starting now.

On my DVR, it wasn't scheduled to start until 7:30, so I hope you padded both ways.

Wow, Prince actually showed up. Up until the last second I thought he might actually flake on the episode and somehow manage to delete himself from the filmed footage.

Prince is hilarious in this. His scenes with Jess are great so far.

I sometimes feel like this show tries too hard to be funny and was worried this episode would fall victim to that, but it was actually very funny. Prince was gold. Given all the crazy stories about him out there I'd be very interested to hear how it was with him and the rest of the cast behind the scenes.

The scene at the end with the gang sitting around the apartment talking had me

The show totally worked for me. Prince did a great job and they constructed a perfect episode for him to appear in and not feel like he was just stunt casting. Love how he stormed off at the end.

I never really got the Prince mystique thing so this episode was OK for me.

No kidding. Fuck me for not wanting to stick around to hear the post-game analysis, which is just about the most worthless thing in the world.

What a complete failure that was from Fox. I didn't even realize until a couple minutes in that I missed a huge part of the story!

I will say that Prince seemed much more human than I expected.

DVR missed the beginning. Blah.

I don't really give a crap about Prince, but the episode was pretty funny and I like that they essentially played off the eccentricities when he was talking to Jess. Liked the Fire and Ice stuff too, and Nick and Schmidt's attempt at it.

Now, this was an episode that felt like last seasons. Great one, hope they can continue and not fall back to the last couple of boring ass episodes.

So how did this episode start? I'm guessing by Nick telling Jess he loved her... anything else?
