On this week’s episode of “New Girl,” Jess went out with Cece and her model friends on Cece's birthday.
The models think Jess looks like a cartoon monkey from a Russian commercial, and tell her to dance until she yells at them, in the process upsetting Cece.
Cece gets drunk and Jess ends up taking her place at a modeling gig for Ford, with hilarious results.
Though she was typically awkward during the modeling gig, I don’t like how they’ve gradually made Jess act a little more sexy and less geeky than in season 1. While I love Miss Deschanel, the Jess character’s charm is being a girl who would wear funny teeth along with a sexy dress to a wedding. I do have to admit I liked Jess and Cece's “boob fight,” though; I’m shallow like that.
I liked the subplot of Schmidt buying Nick a cookie, and being upset Nick never thinks about him. This leads to a funny flashback of the two meeting in college, with Nick sporting a pornstache and Schmidt being chubby.
I think they are positioning Schmidt as the No. 2 or breakout character, but Nick constantly cracks me up, especially Jake Johnson’s facials.
I’m not sure where Jess is headed this season, but if I had to guess the eventual hookup with Nick is still a ways off.
