New Girl - Episode 5.18 - Review: "A Chill Day In"

In a pretty awesome move for the showrunners, "A Chill Day In" picks up with Jess and Cece as the boys are just leaving for the road trip. I didn't expect that and I'm glad I didn't watch the teasers because I was instantly excited to see what happened while the guys were literally getting beat up by desert people. "I'm going to Jackass into these melons." Jess decided to throw Cece a new bachelorette party and damn, that dig at Coach was good.

Jess and Cece high was something I didn't think I'd want to see, but it was pretty funny. The poor U.S. Post Office delivery man being objectified by Cece and Jess was great as was the build-a-bread machine. "Bread maker!" "You're calling me a witch?...no, a sorceress." That was all great and a much needed divergent take on what the boys were going through at the desert bar. They ran into Ally as she was celebrating her fifth year as a cop while Tripp was on the phone making an otter deal for an Alfonso Cuaron movie.

The girls get arrested by mall security after they try to steal a new bread maker and Cece has the same reaction and fear to not being able to take care of Schmidt. It was nice to see a ying and yang to their situations, even though the gang fight was still a classic moment that I will always remember for this season. Jess also let slip that Winston had a crush on Ally and I love how we got to see that reaction play out in real-time and not have to wait next week to see what happens. The guys bust in just as Ally corrected Jess that she was still with Tripp. Winston looking defeated at Ally's confession, Nick upset that he missed "high Jess", Robbie's exclamation of unrequited love for Cece...it was a great way to climax the episode. But DAMN that kiss was good! Hell yeah, for Winnie the Bish! And Nadia kidnapping the gang for the bachelorette party was a nice deus ex machine twist that I didn't see coming. These past two episodes highlighted why I still keep watching. They were perfect episodes; I only wish every episode could maintain this type of energy.

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.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
