Roommates. Lovers. Idiots.
I actually like the look of this
Looking back on season three (I spent today and yesterday watching it) I’ve decided my main problem with it is that the writers seemed unable to balance the comedy with the emotional scenes. In my opinion, apart from the end of ‘All In’ and ‘Birthday’, season three was entirely lacking in emotional scenes. Everything was played for laughs, and the humour wasn’t witty and smart like it used to be, the comedy for me was too broad and pratfall-y, and seemed to have no relevance to character development whatsoever; consequently, positive character development built up in previous seasons was obliterated in order to generate cheap laughs (see:Nick Miller).This for me is what made season three so starkly different to seasons one and two, and made it seem ‘off’. The comedy needs to be grounded in real and sometimes emotional situations.
Nick and Jess were not the problem.
Just seen a New Girl advert on E4. I’m very nervous for this.
I like playing ‘will they, won’t they’ the most, personally. I think they belong together, but I don’t think they are quite ready to be together. I think the tension of almost being together but not quite is where it lives the best.
