Anyone think the romance was too soon?
post #423 of 449
No, but maybe now that it's started it's advancing too fast.  We'll see what happens next season; they might break up in the premiere.

I LIKE 2 Broke Girls

OTOH I like New Girl as well and it is not wise airing reruns on Monday up against Kat and co.

It looks like I'm getting my wish. With Happy Endings cancelled, Damon Wayons Jr. (aka Coach) has signed a contract that will bring him back to New Girl in some capacity.

Interesting. It was kinda weird how he dropped off, but that happens on shows.

The superintendent (or was it the landlord?) is going to get really confused if he sees Coach and Winston together.

For me the show didn't start clicking until Schmidt and Cece hooked up for the first time. After that, it was gold.

Earlier this season, Walt Miller (Nick's father) died.  Today life imitated art when actor Dennis Farina passed away.

Dennis Farina was a class act!
RIP.....

I thought the first episode of the new season was OK, but I thought the second episode was a real step up. Winston, Nick and Schmidt getting stuck in the elevator was funny. Nick trying to stop Winston and Jess at the same time was hysterical.

First episode was OK (Winston was great), but the second episode was back to the form of last season. Really really good. I feel bad for Schmidt. He genuinely appears to want both of them. I also feel bad for the actress that plays Daisy, because clearly she left this show to be a regular on the new show Dads, which I'm guessing is going to be one of the first shows cancelled this season.

Completely agree with your comment.
My wife happened to walk in on the last 15 seconds of episode two where the cat was on top of a sleeping Schmidt... "what the hell are you watching?" biggrin.gif

ROFL!

That cat... so cute, upside down smile and weird eyes.. but love him.

All the Mad Men references, even Cece dressed as Joan

Serpentine!

Just Jess in another cute hat....

I'm glad Coach is back. I enjoy all the other characters, but Coach adds to the show. Also, he just fits in without screwing up the dynamic, IMO. Hopefully he sticks around
post #441 of 449
why did they write off Coach after the pilot anyways? did Wayans want too much $$$ ?
post #442 of 449
Coach has an eye for Cece, I wonder how they play that out..

In 2011 "Happy Endings" got renewed at the last minute, so he wasn't available.  That's why Schmidt said in one episode that Coach had gone "to live with a different bunch of white people."

Likewise, the unexpected renewal of "Happy Endings" got Marissa Jaret Winokur a job replacing Casey Wilson on "Retired at 35."

So, what's the Coach's real name? will he always be "Coach"? (Craig T. Nelson called he wants his nickname back)

It's not like Schmidt has had his first name revealed.

Show's creator says no, it's "unprintable" or perhaps too embarrassing for him?

I like Coach too. I hope he's around for a bit more.

According to the trades, he's on the show the rest of the season.

Craig T. Nelson's character on "Coach" was named Hayden Fox, and they never hid that nor played games with it.  Bill Faggerbakke's character was usually called Dauber, but his name was given as Michael Dybinski from time to time.

But this is "New Girl"; I doubt that Coach will have a first name or a last name, or that Schmidt will have a last name.

I just hope that if we meet Schmidt's parents they'll call him "son" or something rather than "Schmidt."

The specs for "Gilligan's Island" gave Gilligan's first name as Willy, but it was never once used on the air in the entire run of the show.

On "The Fighting Fitzgeralds" Brian Dennehy's [conveniently widowed] character was never given a first name: "Dad" to his sons, "Papa Fitz" to his daughter-in-law, "Grandpa" to his grandchildren, "Captain" to his firehouse crew, "Fitz" to his friends.  But when Holland Taylor did a guest shot as his sister -- specifically, his older sister -- and even she called him "Fitz," that was too much.
