Anyone that has yet to watch last night’s episode of New Girl, titled ‘Double Date’, than now would be the time to do so. Otherwise, there is chance this blog could spoil the episode. THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! You’ve been warned.
There isn’t a lot I have to say about this series anymore. That in and of itself is a sign I’m beginning to lose interest, something I’ve done once before with this series. In this episode, Jess thinks that Nick, her, Cece and Schmidt should all go on a double date; of which Winston has decided he’s going to tag along to. Basically the whole Schmidt dating both Cece and Elizabeth comes to a head, and by the end of it he’s dating no one.
This wasn’t a terrible episode; it did finally confront the whole scenario of Schmidt having two women at once. It was nice to see that that storyline wasn’t prolonged inevitably. It also had a few good Winston moments, one in particular being the exchange between him and Ferguson at the very beginning of the episode. Although, he wasn’t overall as funny as he was in the last two episodes.
About the only thing I loved in this episode was the interchange between Jess and Nick at the end. Basically Schmidt blames the two of them for ruining his love life when he was eventually going to iron it out, so he promises that he will somehow break the two of them up. This creates a brilliantly funny exchange between the couple that includes not liking pears, or pear-shaped people (see Jess), and thinking the moon landing was fake (see Nick).
Other than that, there’s really not much else I can say.
My rating: 2.5 out of 5.
“I’m definitely sexually attracted to lady bugs.” – Nick says to Jess, during their brilliant exchange at the end of the episode.
All right, folks, I’m off to watch Trophy Wife. Then it’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
