New Girl (season 2)

{4.5/5} “If a happening happened and you didn’t know that it happened, did it happen?”

Jess loses her teaching job, and Cece gets engaged. Winston and Jess decide to get a bathtub installed in the apartment, and Nick thinks that one person in Jess’s writing class is really a killer. Nick and Schmidt celebrate being roommates for 10 years, and Nick and Jess have trouble figuring out what kind of relationship they want to have.

New Girl season 2 picks up where season 1 left off. Like Raising Hope, the writers struggled a little bit to maintain the quality of last season — season 2 had a few episodes where there was some silliness that just wasn’t as funny as usual.

The season finale is about Cece’s wedding, at which there’s a surprise guest.*

Jess’s divorced parents are played by Jamie Lee Curtis (Drowning Mona) and Rob Reiner (the TV show All in the Family). Nick’s father is played by Dennis Farina (the TV show Law & Order).

Season 3 is forthcoming.

Spoiler alert
