Wow, this show is so dead. Not even one comment so far. Well, I hope they have moved past any possibility of Jess and Robbie, although I'll be interested to see if there is any follow up where she does break up with him or if they just write him off. 

The show has totally run out of steam.

(I guess worth mentioning, very mild spoilers from the promo for next week are below.)

 

 

 

Spoiler

Next episode Robbie crashes their Thanksgiving dinner.

I didn't say anything originally because I really don't like Robbie so for me so much of this episode was annoying. I also thought Nick's "gay panic" storyline wasn't great. I did love everyone calling him out on it but I really didn't enjoy it.

Winston, as always, was a delight. I do like Schmidt as a good friend to Jess and it was nice having him be there for her throughout this plot rather than Cece or Nick. He made me laugh the most. When he took the scarf out of the box and it kept going and going, I was dying laughing. The physical comedy was small but really effective. I think his arc over the course of the show has been really strong and I'm happy to see all of his growth. This guy who is proud and excited to see Cece take a risk and is kind to Jess when things went so very wrong with Robbie isn't the same guy who needed a douchebag jar.

I'm not sure that's what it was. I've known guys who swear they can't tell what guys are attractive. Is that "gay panic?" Maybe. I find it hard to believe - you don't have to be attracted to your own gender to recognize who's attractive and who isn't.

Another episode where Jess is the weakest character of the bunch.

Sooo... Every episode since season one? 

Who am I kidding, every episode since the pilot! :P

Yeah - I didn't take that as "gay panic".  I don't feel Nick is homophobic at all.  I think he honestly couldn't tell what attributes of the model were "attractive" or how to see "attractive" from someone he wasn't attracted to...
