LOL - I guess no one's at TV Fanatic is reviewing Dads?
I kinda thought this was a pretty weak episode of New Girl. The whole "let's go to Mexico" just seemed like a forced way of showing that Nick and Jess were together for longer than a one night stand. There were funny moments, but there was no real conflict there.
I actually would have preferred if they had dedicated a larger part of the episode to the storyline with REAL conflict, i.e. Schmidt torn between two lovers. I think that plot has enough to be the major focus of an episode, as opposed to a subplot.
God bless Winston - even though the New Girl writers don't know what to do with him, man, does Lamorne Morris ever deliver!!! I would have watched him sing "puzzling" to his puzzle pieces for a good half hour. Hilarious!
They had me at "my twin daughters, Cagney and Lacey..."
I quite enjoyed this. I think Samberg managed to hit a sweet spot between cocky and likeable - and I think it's because his team likes him. Often the cocky character has trouble working in a team, trouble following orders, ego getting in the way of the job and workplace relationships. Peralta has a little trouble with authority, but not so much so that it affects his job and his place on a team. That's a good start to the character.
Braugher (who to me is the best voice of Darkseid ever) was fantastic - funny and compelling. Crews playing against type is going to be interesting. Everything Lo Truglio did made me laugh.
The only supporting character I wasn't quite feeling was Melissa Fumero's. She'll take some time.
A Hook/Emma pairing would definitely make for more interesting television.
For one, they have WAY more chemistry than Emma/Neal.
2. Think of the conniption that Rumpel would have if Hook was a potential step-father to his grandson...
While I usually root for the nice guy - I'm definitely on team Hook.
1. Very happy for Patinkin, it's about time.
2. Big Bang over New Girl - shouldn't be.
3. Tatiana Maslany - definite oversight.
Jake Johnson for lead comedic actor and New Girl for best comedic series.
Hannibal was snubbed all around - competition was fierce so I can see how Mikkelsen and Dancy missed out, BUT how did the show not even get a cinematography or art direction nod?
While I will refrain from making comments on Mr Fillion's character based on this skeletal story - I will say this; only in Hollywood. If a regular person did that on their regular job, there would likely be consequences waiting the next day.
@R - Winston is part of the principal cast - he's not going anywhere. I think Damon Wayans would make a fantastic foil for Winston!!
Are we talking about Matt DILLON or Matt DAMON? The first line says Damon but after that it's consistently Dillon...
I haven't forgiven Shyamalan for The Last Airbender yet.
Great spoilers! Hopefully those "residual" effects on Nick won't take ALL SEASON to resolve like Juliette's amnesia...
