-Winston struggles to complete an extremely simple puzzle.


Episode Number:

LOVED this episode! What a relief to see that Nick and Jess are excited about their relationship, dedicated to making it work. It could've been written the predictable way with them doubting each other and being all awkward with one another. But the writers figured out that it's better to be original and let the audience have fun with Nick and Jess, instead of wincing constantly over awkward pauses and moments. Schmidt's dilemma is a big one, but I've gotta say that I loved his relationship last season with Elizabeth. At long last he finally seemed happy and was always smiling with Elizabeth, never did that much with Cece. But overall I LOVED the oh-so-many romantic moments between Nick and Jess. Sweet relief indeed!

Puzzle me this then, Winston-- how do you live with yourself?
