Quick Thoughts: NEW GIRL, "Double Date"

I'm sure this is getting tiresome to read, but Season 2 of New Girl taught me to give the show some time to re-calibrate itself because it can rebound from a rocky beginning, which means that I'll be cutting Season 3 some slack for now.

Overall, I didn't love "Double Date" but it did have some good things here and there like most episodes. For one, I'm glad that Schmidt's two-timing has finally come to an end because it was already exhausting, and I kind of like the idea of him being out for revenge. What was even better though was how all of the lies impacted Nick and Schmidt, whose friendship has become the core of the show for me. Sure, Nick and Jess are cute, and I get why Jess and Cece's bond can be interesting, but the Nick and Schmidt dynamic has always been the most important factor in my opinion. I'm excited to see where this goes.

Unfortunately, Winston's devolution into a complete sociopath dragged things down a bit, and that's not to say that his B-plot about being the fifth wheel wasn't relatable, but he took it to such an odd place that it was no long funny. The writers need to figure out a new approach for Lamorne Morris and fast.

So, another swing and fall ball from New Girl. Like I said, I'm willing to give the show some time but things need to shape up sooner rather than later.
