Yeah it was actually funny (although the show still has some major chemistry kinks to work out)! They need to make sure to have the cute title sequence each time though as it sets the tone nicely!

Yeah they still seem to be deciding who likes who in the house dynamic between Jess and Cece.

Love some of the movie reference quotes in New Girl

"I Don’t Dance. I’m From the Town in Footloose."

"Did you see that cleavage? I just wanted to get my arm stuck down there. Like, 127 Hours-style. Cut through the skin, bone and nerves"

New Girl was excellent this week. I laughed a lot. Zooey was especially funny, and hella sexy.

3 episodes into New Girl and I'm quite liking it, as with most new shows I find it takes a bit of bedding in to get used to the main leads.

Glad it's got 24 episodes but as this is a Fox job I don't expect any more than that.

Quite like both shows....

Main bugbear for 2 broke girls is the blonde obviously waiting for the canned laughter, she just kinda stops and grins...canned laughter kicks in...and off we go again

Is it not recorded in front of an audience then? I can see why it was be slightly jarring if she doesn't know when the laughter is stopping.

Funnily enough I just happened to watch a clip of The Big Bang Theory last night on YouTube with the audience laughter edited out, and it's quite bizarre how awkward the pauses in the dialogue feel without it.

2 broke girls is filmed in front of a live audience just like Big Bang Theory (they actually film on the same night at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank).

It may sound a little awkward if not edited right as they do multiple takes of the scene and depending what they are filming (they shoot with 4 cameras to get the angles) they take different angles from different takes.

If anyone is in LA you can get into these tapings for free. I'm off to see my 4th taping of Big Bang Theory on 17th Jan.

He's annoying when back at the flat but when he's at work with an office full of women, then he becomes amusing to watch.

Tbh after 4 or 5 eps in a row he did get funny. When he said he wanted to lose his arm in Cici's cleavage 127 hrs style it did get a proper laugh out of me.

She is a peach.

She certainly is. The 127 hours line is the best one he's had in the show.

I tried the line at work when someone busty appeared, and just got stony silence! Obviously the way you tell 'em.

Has the sexual harassment seminar been booked yet?

A nice bit of Lizzy Caplan this week in New Girl. A few funny Schmidt bits too.

Have I missed some episodes of New Girl?
I remember Schmit lying in bed with Cece / Cici in one episode and maybe hooking up, Jess' fretting over whether to buy a gift certificate etc, and just having watched 1x10, Cece seems to have vanished, no mention of her, some new lawyer girl has appeared (last time I saw her boyfriend, who I can't remember the character name, he was with that girl from the bar) etc.
Could have sworn I'd watched them all (looked at a synopsis for 1x09 and I saw that) but it seems I've either starting watching a different show or they're completely out of order.

I know, but she did sort of imply it may go further in time.

Did think she would have been there for Schmit's birthday even as Jess's friend.
