    Glad to hear it! You Negative Nancies were making me worried it would be a flop! :)

    I am also a paraplegic who cannot move from my chair, and I used to have a TV exactly like yours. The damn thing wouldn't turn off, and I couldn't change the channel or volume. I am SO glad I got rid of that thing!

    Excellent news about the pick up! I loved the second episode just as much as the pilot, I just get all starry eyed when Zooey is on-screen, my ideal woman lol. Is it wrong that I wept openly when Jess broke the flatscreen?

    Second episode: even worse than the pilot. I'm beginning to think it's a hipster attempt at a sitcom parody. Like, it's a huge inside joke and the creators are laughing at the audience for enjoying the garbage they're shoveling out.


    First DVR casualty of the season.

    I think New Girl is a breath of fresh air considering the other crap on tv. I enjoy it and hope it stays for a while.

    I think it's cute but Zooey goes a little overboard sometimes, to the point of cringe-worthiness.

    Woah. That was Natasha Lyonne! Last I heard she was pretty messed up.

    "I feel like knowing what you're feeling."


    I thought Lake Bell was acting a lot like the Jess character on the first date, which I thought was interesting. I'm kind of hoping Nick and Jess get together at some point.

    I thought it was painful for the first 3/4 of the episode, but the last bits help offset annoying Jess. The other subplot (small talk and current events) was dull.

    I thought it was a terrible, stupidly written episode, but I'll continue watching because of Zooey.

    It was not the best episode, but I enjoy the cast and production.


    And Schmidt is such a marvelous idiot, I love him! :)

    I do like how this show is shot, very cinematic, with good lighting. The 3-camera sitcom shows on mainly CBS have a tired look to them.

    It feels like a high production drama, e.g. Parenthood. It's such a lavish look for a sitcom.

    I used to like Zooey (like, LIKE her), but this show has completely turned me off. Which means there's zero reason to watch the show now.

    ^ She was on Craig Ferguson Monday, and the interview was funnier than the entirety of everything I've seen associated with this show. Rather than subject myself to a show I just don't like, I DVR "Glee" (which was also terrible last night) and go right into "Raising Hope" at 9:30.

    Too bad it took racklicious CeCe to bring the funny out of the cast of male characters.

    That episode started poorly, but turned out pretty good, if abrupt. I still enjoy it, though it's been more erratic the past couple episodes.

    The guys were funny? I missed that. I gave this show a second chance, after catching last week's episode by accident and laughing quite a bit. But this week's was again devoid of comedy.

    The guys' clumsy attempts to woo CeCe got laughs from moi. The episode from last week was pretty weak.

    The turkey in the dryer did make me laugh.
