New Girl - Episode 5.11 - Review: "The Apartment"

New Girl - Episode 5.11 - Review: "The Apartment"

I can't believe I didn't realize the 100th episode was last week! What a milestone and a great episode to leave off on. This week on New Girl, Jess must complete a week's worth of work for the school budget while Cece moves into the loft. Meanwhile, Schmidt tries to deal with a flasher at the bar and Winston must work with a new partner to avoid any sexual tension with his partner Aly. Maybe it's just because I'm going through a similar situation with a move, but Cece's emotional response to her whole life changing hit pretty damn close to home. They say change is fun; I say screw that. Change is scary as hell because there are so many unknown variables, but in the end, you can only control the events that are controllable. Sometimes you just have to see how things will play out. Maybe you fail, maybe you succeed, but I guarantee you will find out what you're made of after pushing your limits with a huge life change.

Meanwhile, at the bar, Winston vacillates between calling Aly to let her know how she feels, while Winston and his partner, Johnston, let the flasher go after failing to communicate. Cece tries to convince Jess to take a leap of faith and quit her job because she is completely stressed out. Sometimes the best episodes deal with the heaviest events. I'm glad this episode addressed the bigger issues that women and men around this age, (i.e., jobs, marriage, life in general). However, Cece totally goes crazy and quits for Jess while she is on the phone with Jess' boss, Becky (Saved by the Bell, Showgirls' Elizabeth Berkeley). "Nailed it" indeed.

Aly confessing her true partner feelings for Winston was great, but I think we can agree, Winston will overload on Aly before the end of the season and let her know how he truly feels. Jess meets with Becky to apologize and turn in the budget report, but Becky pushes it too far and Jess really does decide to quit. Sometimes you have to say enough is enough when it comes to what you can take at a job. It's just a job, there are more out there, you can't be defined by what you do. You should be defined by the content of your character. So as episode 101 closes, we are left in a precarious situation with Cece freaked out, but excited about her next step in life with Schmidt and Jess will have a crisis of conscience with trying to figure out her next step. Just the basics of being a twenty to thirty-something navigating life. Comment below with your thoughts on the episode and tune into New Girl Tuesday's at 8/7 central.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.
