Dads had more viewers than New Girl (and Brooklyn 9-9) last night.


Go, 'Merica.

Jess' ex really hates his wife.


Once again the episode proves the Nick is the most level headed of the group.. and right more than once this episode.

post #353 of 395

Thought Adam Brody was pretty great, but the laugh of the episode came from Winston quietly musing "probably get ham," after taking the free sub coupon. 


Honorable mention to Zooey's sobbing in the shower.  "This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me.  I've led a very fortunate life!"

The stuff in Schmidt's loft was good but I'm getting tired of Nick and Jess. What hilarious misunderstanding will they have next week?

post #355 of 395

Another weird continuity issue with this episode: When the show started Nick and Caroline were broken up, and then they got back together for like a day at the end of Season 1 and then Nick realized what a terrible idea that was and the whole driving off into the desert thing happened. Would Caroline REALLY be going that crazy about that?

post #356 of 395

Well, he was on his way to move in with her.

post #357 of 395

Well, Linda Cardellini just made this show interesting again.

When I hear her voice it immediately makes me think of Gravity Falls.

"Did you see a girl that looks like me, only with chaos in her eyes?"


Making the target of Schmidt's desire an obvious raving lunatic was kind of tedious, but it was worth it for the runner about how Schmidt has taken to monologuing in his isolation, the finely-honed haplessness Johnson brings to his exchanges with Schmidt. 


"I'm sorry your girlfriend hates you."

"She doesn't hate me. She's just ashamed of me or something..."

Community still has the best circumcision of the year (in comparison to a baptism, "at least with a bris, there's an element of suspense!")


Here's hoping for a crowded field in this category come awards season.

Coach and Winston together are hilarious. While I shed a tear for Winston's year of failure, he has truly shined this year. Things can only look up. Right?

Really enjoying Coach on the show. Love he's on New Girl, but I would also be happy to watch a Coach Coach spin-off as he whips a bunch of knucklnead kids into the best volleyball team in town.

post #365 of 395

They are sort of jumping into Cece's boss being unflinchingly gay huh?  I thought it was hilarious, but the intensity of it sort of caught me off-guard.

post #366 of 395
I think the joke is that the young man is so gorgeous people lose all self-control around him-- something Cece can appreciate from personal experience. I expect we'll get some awkwardness from the rest of the gang in later episodes.

But yes, "I have an eye for young boys. No, that's not a typo." was surprisingly unambiguous.

My favorite bit: The principal letting it slip about his Kristi Yamaguchi fetish.

Courtroom Brown.


Love it.

This was Winston's and Coach's episode.

Oh man, the Courtroom Brown bit was incredible.

wow.. the trailer for LET"S BE COPS with Jake Johansen and Wayans Jr actually looks funny.

A back brace wearing, knee pad clad Winston describing Daddario's "witch eyes" absolutely killed me.
post #373 of 395

I guess this season and that episode (I've yet to see it dammit) are really not connecting with audiences this year.  They are criticizing the lack of focus - which I see, but for some reason it doesn't bother me.  The comedy is so solid I don't really care that they are flying by the seat of their pants.  Besides, I'm not sure the grand narrative is something this show has ever considered a priority.

I'm laughing but I'm not really feeling it lately.


I just wish writers would stop painting themselves into corners only tropes used a billion times before can get them out of.

post #375 of 395

Finally got around to it.  I understand the criticisms, but it just doesn't bug me.  I guess comedy works over plot for me.  I do have one question though...are they

split or not?


That was handled weird.

"If there's anything cute about Winston, it's his yawn...."


*Them all watching Winston yawn killed me.

post #377 of 395

Already sick of the Jess and Nick stuff and it's been two episodes.  Dammit, I wish they had decided not to go down this path.  This is a show I buy on DVD and I just know I am going to hate sitting through these parts in future viewings. So sick of this cliche.

post #378 of 395

Yeah. Their relationship had about the shittiest resolution possible.

post #379 of 395

This doesn't help the Nick/Jesse storyline to not feel like a retread of the Schmidt/Cece relationship.

"Let's use the serving tongs, okay.  This isn't Appalachia."


Posehn's little "banana in the dark" ditty destroyed me.  I am not a sophisticated man.

post #381 of 395

If the man is 20 today, then he would have been more like 3 when Good Will Hunting came out.  Just sayin'.

Are you kidding? By far the best part of the episode.

I loved that Winston had a girl fanclub.

post #384 of 395

I wanted to see Winston really get down.  I imagine that would have been amazing.

post #385 of 395

Nobody could've handled that much heat.

post #386 of 395

What's difficult to comprehend is how they can have, in the same episode, Winston's defining characteristic can alternately be that he instantly drains any sexual tension from the room and having such raw animal magnetism that combining him with 6 chords of Carlie Rae Jepsen leads to irreversible Bishopmania.   And somehow Lamorne Morris makes this feel viable, since he's so good at playing oblivious weirdness.  It almost feels like the writers have realized that the performance gets perversely stronger the less they give him to work with, and have just embraced writing off-kilter sketch comedy pieces for one part of their hangout sitcom ensemble.

post #387 of 395

So this week's finale was maybe the worst episode this show has done. 


The cruise ship safety scene is probably the longest thing I've ever watched in 3 minutes. 


I'm starting to feel a little bad for the cast, because it feels like their expected to improve all the good stuff while the writer's just take the afternoon off.  I imagine that when the writer's have to write jokes, the scripts are just padded out with stuff like, "Winston says something off the wall" and "Nick says something off the wall".  And that stuff's often the funniest thing about a given episode.

Yeah, everyone is killing themselves trying to make the shit they've given them work. What a waste.

post #389 of 395

Yeah, definitely a pretty shitty episode, but isn't that par for the course with this show?  I think last season's finale was barely ok, but the first season finale was absolutely horrible too.


I have a suspicion that because audiences are tuning out in droves the writers are in a panic.  These past few episodes have been over the place.  They feel like they are written by people that are stressed out and pressured.

post #390 of 395

THAT was the season finale?

The only good news is that Coach isn't gone in the finale, so maybe he could be a cast regular next year.

post #392 of 395

He was signed on as a cast regular this week.

post #393 of 395

I thought this season was pretty lackluster in general, especially compared to Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

post #394 of 395

This has nothing on Brooklyn 99.

post #395 of 395

What did Jess have written on her forehead?  I liked the buoyancy joke.
