What I’m Watching: New Girl

New Girl: Season 6, Episode 5 “Jaipur Aviv” (B+)

I should note that, almost every week when I’m watching this show there’s a scene or two that makes me laugh out loud for at least thirty seconds or so. At this point, I don’t think there’s any other show on the air that regularly makes me crack up that same way, though this show’s quality isn’t exactly consistent from week to week. That moment for me in this episode was Schmidt’s concerned reaction to the fact that Cece couldn’t tell the difference between metal and wood as evidenced by her questionable interior design choices. There wasn’t much made of the episode’s title that served as a compromise between Schmidt’s idea for what to name their house and Cece’s response that a house doesn’t need to have a name, but it is pretty funny in concept. Using the unfurnished house as a setting for the voting on whether Nick should ask Reagan to move into the loft was entertaining, and I like that Jess had the little pictures of them as a backup gift that she could put on the impressively magnetic wall. Jess really is being a good friend to Nick, and it’s nice that they came to a good understanding about his trepidation with moving forward. Winston thinking that the house was used for a major porn movie was funny, and the notion of only being able to keep five secrets a time with Nick and having to reveal one in order to enter this into the archives is quite entertaining and very much unique to those two characters.
