The Aftermath of the Kiss


Nick and Jess New Girl

Better articulated as “OMG happens now??” after the “kiss that rocked all social media” by the show’s fanatic Newbies (raises hand). I personally wasn’t there when Ross and Rachel were unraveling their romance in the sitcom game-changer FRIENDS, but I think it wouldn’t be as adorably dorky, fall-off-the-couch funny and witty as it is now with New Girl‘s Nick and Jess. Major props to showrunner Liz Meriwether for the genius timing and the awkwardness that followed suit. Critics be damned while the rest of us are glued to the tube and cursing the hot summer day this season ends.

As for the never ending comparison to the FRIENDS royal couple, no I don’t think they are the new Ross and Rachel. They are their own Nick and Jess. Did Ross ever write one and half zombie novels? I don’t think so. Rachel too was never “old-fashioned below the belt.” As only Jessica Day would put it, “I’ve got a Civil War-era piece of equipment and that’s all she wrote.”

Cheers to that.

  1. Season 2 is half way through! And be warned, it gets better and funnier (Nick Miller gets hotter) each episode. Go on and check your favorite torrent site. Go on :p
