New Girl Review: Nick's Sexy Mix

by at . Comments

Based on the episode description alone, I had high expectations for "Fluffer." Schmidt tries to date a hot Republican? Nick and Jess take their relationship to the next level!? Sign me up!

Jess & Nick Examine Their Relationship

I felt that Nick and Jess' chemistry was off tonight, though. There have been moments where you could cut the sexual tension with a butter knife, but I thought they were pretty flat this week. Their last scene, however, was great. Now that they've admitted their mutual attraction for each other, they're definitely getting together. Nick and Jess 'shippers... get ready! 

Schmidt's run as Tug Romney was funny because Schmidt can do no wrong, but the laughs were hollow until he called CeCe at the end of the episode. Props to New Girl for turning a total throwaway plot into a touching scene that took us a little deeper into Schmidt's past. I'm also really glad CeCe is back in Schmidt's life. He needs her, whether they're dating or not. One of her pearls of wisdom made it to the New Girl quotes page, along with so many other great lines from the episode. 

And Winston gets his first plot this season involving people outside the loft! Things aren't going well with Shelby, but with no context it's hard to tell if something happened between them or if she's just not feeling it anymore. Hopefully, we'll find out more next Tuesday. I could also stand to wait a little longer just so Winston can keep making those ridiculous sex-deprived faces. 

But the most important question I'm left with after "Fluffer" is what else is on Nick's Sexy Mix!? Let's make this CD a reality, people.

Was I the only one who though it was Jess and Nick making out at the end of the episode, and then was disappointed to figure out it was just the guy she's having sex with?

The creative tean is really stepping it up this season. I am watching now for more than just my deep infatuation with Zooey. Hope they bank an Emmy this time around. Tug out!
