New Girl - (S01E22)


Jess fears she and Russell don't share the fiery passion he exhibits with his ex-wife Ouli. Meanwhile, Cece is not yet willing to admit her true feelings for Schmidt, so she encourages him to go on a date with one of her Russian model roommates. Then, a down-in-the-dumps Nick channels all of his energy into a new vegetable garden.

  • Matt Roush

    Everything about New Girl, from her goofy costars to the distinctively quirky writing, is irresistible.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    This fall sitcom is a hit entirely because of Deschanel's performance as Jess. [7 Nov 2011, p.41]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Girl sets up a viable premise and introduces a strong set of supporting characters, which is just what you want from fall's most promising new series.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It's the best new comedy of the fall season, and the only new show I genuinely enjoyed from start to finish, rather than having to squint real hard and try to picture what it might look like once the producers figure out what to do with their stars.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Fox seems to be on the right track, though, with a lead character who has ample potential to gawkily bloom and grow.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Creator Elizabeth Meriwether manages to make the situations funny and lets Deschanel channel her charm--a winning combination.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Viewers will come to see Deschanel but they'll stay for the whole package because smart writing, confident timing and characters that are both familiar yet surprisingly fresh make New Girl the most promising comedy, and one of the most promising shows, of the season.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    One of the new season's potentially best sitcoms is born.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    New Girl is charming and quite funny, but especially when compared with the other two shows, it seems quite old-school.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    It's the dialogue that takes this series over the top.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    New Girl didn't give me as many laugh-out-loud moments as some comedies. But the show delivered something extra that my favorite sitcoms often don't: It made me feel warm and fuzzy.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    The three guys have yet to be fleshed out, though, so right now this is a one-woman show.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    It's funny and cute.

    Slate Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Overall [it] is more charming than hilarious.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Andrea Reiher

    Overall, it's a strong first episode and we will definitely keep watching.

    Zap2it (Inside the Box) Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    New Girl possesses ample energy, even if it almost instantly violates "Seinfeld's" old "No hugging, no learning" rule. Then again, heart is part of its DNA.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Deschanel is utterly con-vincing as this off-kilter gal, and of the supporting cast, Wayans sparks the most as Coach.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    If you love Zooey Deschanel, this one's for you. If not, a pass.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Phillip Maciak

    Despite growing out of a plot conceit that involves Craigslist, New Girl--from its characters to the Felix the Cat-like predicaments in which they land--doesn't seem rooted in reality of any kind.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    I love this show, because I love the wide-eyed star, who is fully engaged in her role here. If you dislike her hipster adorability, though, beware.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    The rather sunny ending of New Girl doesn't feel earned, and your enjoyment level may depend on how much you can tolerate Zooey Deschanel's doofy charisma.

    The Huffington Post Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    Where everything comes together beautifully in "Broke," New Girl tries too hard and falls short for doing so.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Renee Scolaro Mora

    The promos for New Girl suggest that it's something new or at least mildly unusual. But its first episode looks like more of the same.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    This truly hideous sitcom offers a postmodernist take on the 1960s comedy That Girl, in which Marlo Thomas starred as an aspiring actress afflicted with insufferable cuteness.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Boy, has she pulled the bangs over everyone's eyes with this atrociously cutesy sitcom.
