New Girl Season 7 Review

I can’t believe it’s over.

I’ve been watching New Girl since 2014 and now it’d done. No more episodes.

Even though the ending of season six could have been a series finale, I’m so glad they did these additional eight episodes.

It was fine revisiting these characters in a new light: since the last episode, three years have passed and Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Cece and Winston have changed: some of them got married, some of them had a child and they became different people.

I really enjoyed getting a glimpse of it and even though I’m sad it is over, I’m so happy with the way they ended it.

From Ruth’s birthday party, preschool admission tests and godparents to Nick and Jess getting dog, then getting engaged and married.

They bring back to the show all the recurring characters, guest stars and old fan favourites. Watching these eight episodes is like going on a trip down to memory lane: you remember the good times, you remember the silly jokes and the embarrassing moments…

I really liked it.

And can we just take a moment to say how lovely and a Dora Ball and unbelievably cute Schmidt and Cece’s daughter Ruth is?! SHE IS SO FREAKING CUTE!

New Girl (2011)

The twins who play her are so little but their comedic timing and delivery were outstanding! They were so funny! One of the highlights of this season. Absolutely wonderful!

The one thing I was a bit upset about was the whole “blessing/asking the father permission” thing that drives me crazy every time I see it on television and IRL. COME ON! In other matters, they are very progressive. For example, Schmidt is a stay-at-home dad and takes care of his daughter while Cece goes to work. Why couldn’t they have just skipped Jess’ father’s permission? We will never know.

I loved that, at the end, it was all a classic Winston prank and that Jess and Nick didn’t really have to move out of the loft. This made the episode and on a lighter and funnier note than it would’ve done without prank Sinatra’s comeback.


I have spent a lot of time watching “New Girl” and I think it will always hold a place in my heart. I watch it/listen to it all the time when I’m studying. I just put it in the background and it helps me concentrate.

Thank you for the laughter and the happy moments.

Goodbye!

New Girl – s07 ep 01 – “About Three Years Later” – Review

I really wanted to watch the new episode of “New Girl”: I woke up early to download the episode and put it on my mom’s iPad.
And it didn’t work.
So I plugged in my phone and tried with that.
It didn’t work either.
So I left my house at 8:30 in the morning, episode-less.
I had an hour of train ride and I really wanted to see it!! I’ve been using the show to keep me company while I study and I’ve grown very attached to it. I am very sad this is its last season.


It’s little Ruth’s 3rd birthday and Cece and Schmidt try to throw her a feminist party with feminist icons themed drinks and a panel for any questions these little kids mix have.
It’s ridiculous. But not as stupid as Schmidt’s moustache. With its own personal comb.2018-04-11 (1).png

Nick and Jess have returned from their European book tour and they are perfectly happy with their lives: they are still living in the loft and their relationship is great.

At the party, they meet again Russell, Jess’ ex boyfriend and the only man both her and Nick have loved.
There is a whole mess, she lies about being engaged to Nick. Unbeknownst to Jess, Nick is planning to propose. That night.
Last but not least, Winston and Aly are married and she is 7 months pregnant! And she hates it!

Overall, the episode was great! I loved the familiarity of the character, even if their lives are not the same as they used to be.

One thing that really really really really annoyed me was the “blessing” situation. Learn a lesson from one of the two men I would ever marry, Jake Peralta.

Why are people so obsessed with asking the father permission to marry his daughter?!? WHY?!?
Please. Can we stop doing this?!? It drives me fucking crazy.
I hate it. With all my heart.


Other than that, I’m really looking forward to the next episode.

New Girl Season 7!!!!

I can’t believe New Girl is finally back!

I’ve been sporadically watching the show since its late 3rd season (?) and although I lost interest along the way, it’s still a nice and familiar comedy to go back to.

I’ve been using it while studying. I need to have background noise and it’s perfect.

I was sad when they said they weren’t sure if the show was going to be renewed for a 7th season and to be fair, it would have been a great ending anyway.

Nonetheless, I am thrilled they brought it back.

Season 7 picks up roughly 3 years after the events in the previous season: Schmidt and Cece have a daughter called Ruth, Winston and Aly got married and she is currently expecting a baby and Nick and Jess have just come back from the european tour for “The Pepperwood’s Chronicles”.

I am really excited to see what they are up to, how they have changed and say goodbye to these characters.

Risultati immagini per new girl season 7 posterI absolutely can’t wait.

I also hope they’ll bring back some of the most important guest stars and recurring characters like Coach, Principal Foster, Ryan Geauxinue, Robby, Doctor Sam…

It’s going to be so sad leaving Jess, Nick, Winston, Cece and Schmidt…

8 more episodes of a great comedy.

Let’s go!

 

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9.30/8.30c on Fox.

Homeland season 7 PREMIERE – Review

SPOILER ALERT! This blog post contains spoilers for all seasons of Homeland.

Just like last year, I decided to put my thoughts on Homeland on paper and review the first episode of the show’s seventh season.

The Finale of season 6 left me devastated. I can’t believe how relevant and pertinent the show still is.

Season 6 dealt with a new president elect (A WOMAN!!! But don’t rejoy because she’s the worst), fake news, an Alex Jones’ radio host, friction with the intelligence community, islamophobia and sadly so much more.

Season 6 was painfully realistic. It resembled closely (maybe too much) the political and social landscape of today’s America. President Elect Keane’s deligimization of the intel community and other sectors of the US government.

Doesn’t that remind you of anyone? Maybe residing in the White House right in this moment.

I thought so.

Even though they shot and wrote the show before the back shit crazy events occurred (The Delegitimisation of the FBI and the intelligence community by the sitting US president, The war against reality truth and facts, and so much more), “Homeland“ pains very much divided nation, people on opposite sides fighting each other and believes that seem to come from another historical Era.
It has always been politically relevant and I’m so curious to see what they going to do with this seventh season.

In the aftermath of President Keane‘s election and wave of arrests she ordered against her own intelligence community, people are trying to navigate on which side they want to stand.

On a more personal note, Carrie is also dealing with the tragic loss she had at the end of season six (I will not talk about it because it upsets me too much), her living situation with her sister and her husband, and of course her medical condition.

On the show, the fight isn’t between Republicans and Democrats. In our reality, it is quite

clear where people stand and what they think about the events of the last year. On the show, the lines are blurred. On one side you have a president who locked up her own federal agents and is not trusted by more than half of the country. One the other side you have people fighting against her, but what they preach isn’t exactly better than what she believes in.

O’Keefe, who is the counterpart of right-wing radio show host Alex Jones, and his views increase the distrust among the American people. Him and his followers are saying to be part of “The Resistance”, just like the term the Democrats are using to fight against Trump.

So where is the parallel? Is there one?

To be perfectly candid it’s kind of hard for me to fully understand what goes on homeland, just like with “HouseOfCards”. It’s not easy to follow, especially now that’s all about political power.

And I have a couple of criticisms. Although putting a woman in the White House, as president, after the events of last years presidential election, felt like a good idea I’m now having doubts.
Hillary Clinton Was president now, maybe having a fictional and ambiguously suspicious counterpart would’ve been a good idea, but I’m afraid that showing a flawed and unprepared female president could deter people from electing one. It’s probably my naive point of you, and I am almost sure this won’t impact the publics opinion, but personally I wouldn’t have risked it.

Nonetheless I am ecstatic that “Homeland” is back. I am already planning to rewatch season four (which is probably my favourite season EVER).

I genuinely hope that you will enjoy this season and feel free to let me know your thoughts on the premiere and on the second episode.
