Tonight's New Girl tones down some of the insanity and general dislike of the cast to give us something a little more tolerable. Also during the time between the pilot and episode two, we gain a new intro sequence, and a replacement cast member Lamorne Morris as Winston, the former roommate returning from playing professional basketball overseas.
Overall, the episode deals with Jess's fear of breaking up, despite the fact her heart was broken and she was completely taken advantage of. Tonight, Jess is a lot less insane, which is refreshing.
So far this year, I haven't been impressed by much on Tuesday. The new crime drama Unforgettable is drawn out, while New Girl is kind of a train wreck.
FOX has taken the surprising move of being generally conservative with their new show scheduling. Most shows from last season return this season with only three new series launching this fall.
