Re: New Girl - Post Super Bowl Episode - "Prince" - 2/2/14

It started with all the guys in the loft having a funny conversation about moving Jess's underwear from the dryer since she is Nick's GF now. Jess and CeCe burst in and say were almost run over by an SUV but the driver was Prince's assistant and she invited them to the party and was sending a limo. Later as CeCe and Jess are about to drive off all the guys are saying bye, have fun, etc when Nick says "I love you" to Jess. She doesn't say anything in return and shoots him with finger guns as the limo drives off. After short scenes where each talks about how awkward it was Nick decides he has to crash the party and unsay it.

CeCe and Jess underwear shopping when they get invited to Prince's house. Typical sexed up intro to get new viewers to stick around. Lame.

The stuff with Schmidt was funny. The Prince appearance didn't do much for me and the stuff between Nick and Jess was very predictable.

Thanks guys. Sucks that they couldn't have started it at the scheduled time.

Charlie Murphy was right about the pancakes.

It was a good ep. However, I have always felt that celebrity cameos on sitcoms tend to act as deus ex machinas for conflicted situations. This was no different.

That was part of the joke, Prince was spoofing the Chappelle Show skit. They really should have worked in Prince saying "game, blouses."

I don't think they were underwear shopping. If they were, I missed that completely.

Despite living relatively close to Paisley Park, I've never been a Prince fan. That said, I love they went full-on "weirdo with magical powers". The entire "training" montage was hysterical.

Actually, I have! Well, I've gone swimming in it. Not sure if I was purified.

Good episode but could have done without the in-show car advertisement.

No, it started with one of the guys trying figure out how to deal a pair of Jess' panties that was in the dryer. The guys were all awkward about it.

The girls almost got run over by someone who works for Prince while they were crossing a street, that's how they got the invite.

I thought they justified it by telling Coach to shut up.

I haven't enjoyed to many of this season's episodes, but this one was funny throughout. Most everyone had one or two great lines.

And what man doesn't know a woman who genuinely believes exes can be friends?

Nick's delayed freak out to Prince was my favorite part of the ep.

Coach has been a good addition to the cast. Something does seem less funny this season, as the basic stories move away from Schmidt and Nick.

Schmidt's new loft was pretty awesome.

Re: New Girl - "Exes" - 2/4/14

Very funny and solid episode following the Prince one. Can't recall back-to-back episodes being this good all season.

If Schmidt has the kind of money to do that to his loft with no roommates, he should never move back. It's nice to be with your friends, but in a place that awesome, I think you could deal with your best buddies being across the hall.

I think the show could keep Coach. He and Winston are seeming to work well together now and Winston floundered forever. I thought another cast member might take away from the show, but I think everyone is getting their time to shine right now. I really hope they can keep this up for the rest of the season.
