New Girl (FOX) - Season 5 Thread - premieres 1/5/16



**SEASON PREMIERE** --"NEW GIRL" - (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) CC-AD-HDTV 720p-Dolby Digital 5.1

CECE HAS A SHOCKING CONFESSION TO MAKE ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF "NEW GIRL" TUESDAY, JANUARY 5, ON FOX

When Cece and Schmidt ask Jess and Nick to be their Maid of Honor and Best Man, respectively, their first task is to plan the engagement party. But when Jess invites Cece's mom to join in the celebration, Cece is forced to make a surprising announcement to Schmidt in the all-new "Big Mama P" season premiere episode of NEW GIRL airing Tuesday, Jan. 5 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (NG-503) (TV-PG D, L, V)

Cast: Zooey Deschanel as Jess; Jake Johnson as Nick; Max Greenfield as Schmidt; Lamorne Morris as Winston; Hannah Simone as Cece

Guest Cast: Anna George as Priyanka, Kenneth Bowers as Glen, Rob Riggle as Big Schmidt, Nelson Franklin as Robby, Fred Melamed as J. Cronkite Valley-Forge, Mona Sishodia as Not-Mom
Some episodes were filmed last year to accommodate for Zooey's real life pregnancy. She will miss some episodes this season. Megan Fox will be on the show to fill the void.

Season 2 was the best overall. Season 3 pretty much sucked. Last season was a decent attempt to return to form.

I'm still catching up on season 3.
Loved it when they were talking about how fragile Winston is "he broke his arm on wrapping paper!".

yeah 3 was an awful season. I actually considered giving up on the show after it. Jess and Nick hooking up so soon partly contributed to it. 4 was more watchable, but this show is hardly must see TV for me anymore. I chuckle every now and then, but I really don't think this show is very funny anymore.

Wasn't Cece's mom involved the last time she was about to marry? Sorry, I can't remember for sure...

No, I don't think so. We saw her fiancée's aunt at the bachelorette party, but they never showed Cece's mother at the wedding. You figure she would have been there even if we didn't see her... and that the whole gang would've met her already... but I guess realism gets tossed in order to accomplish story lines and jokes.

I still like Winston's practical jokes being too harsh or way too soft. It's the best aspect of the character.

Glad to have it back.

CeCe's mom is hot.

Nick and the mistaken mom amused me, too.

The one thing I like about the later seasons versus the earlier ones is that Winston finally feels like a real character now. I know they had to scramble to introduce a new character after Damon Jr. dropped out, but it took them a really long time to figure out who exactly Winston was and how he fit into the dynamic.

Winston went from being the worst character, who they had no idea what to do with, to being the best.

They're not wasting any time covering up Zooey's belly, are they? I think I'll have to skip this show when Zooey leaves and Megan Fox temporarily replaces her... this show just isn't a "must watch" any more.

I now realize how much Zoey Deschanel's hottness contributes to my enjoyment of this show.

I think Cece is hella hotter then Zoey... =)

If they give me Schmidt from season 2 he could carry the show till Zoey gets back.

Yea I stopped watching it long time ago , hated when he came back on. It totally ruined the perfect dynamic the cast had when he came on.

For a while he had moved out when coach had moved in, but they quickly abandoned that story line.

You have the focus of a coked up Italian on a summer's day.

Great episode, loved the Nick-Schmidt exchange, felt like earlier season episode.
