I made a judgment call, and I’m going to skip the recaps of a couple of the shows that I missed. Partly because the episodes weren’t that great, and partly because I’m short on time. I’m hoping to get back to some of the regular features this week, though, seeing as there are only FOUR new episodes in the line-up all week!
New Girl 2/2 “Prince”
This was episode that aired after the Super Bowl, and it was a pretty fun one. The demographic for the show probably includes a lot of people who loved Prince when they were growing up, so this was sort of a perfect guest appearance.
Likewise, both Jess and Nick love Prince, so when Jess and Cece get invited to his house for a party, everybody loses it a little. However, the bigger part of the story is that Nick tells Jess he loves her, and she doesn’t know how to respond other than with “finger guns”. After a thorough conversation, and the strict tutelage of Prince, she learns how to own up to her fear and tell Nick the truth, that she loves him too.
As a bonus, she gets to get up on stage at Prince’s party and sing with him! Lucky for us, Zooey Deschanel can actually sing really well, so it makes for an entertaining performance.
New Girl 2/4 “Exes”
Caroline (aka Waitress from Sunny) turns up at the farmer’s market, and Nick has to confront her and tell her the truth about why they broke up.
Jess tries to get help for him from her old friend Berkeley, who she doesn’t realize she’s been leading on the past ten years. It doesn’t go well, as he professes his love for her, and Nick just keeps digging a deeper hole for himself with Caroline.
Schmidt, Winston and Coach are trying to maneuver all having sex in Schmidt’s new loft at the same time in different parts of the apartment. It starts out well, but it bombs quickly. Schmidt needed a win, and he loses out again. Living on his own for too long has made him a little creepy about getting back in the game, and while it seems he’s gotten past the creepiness, he still needs to get back on track.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine 2/4 “The Party”
This one was a fun one. The gang goes to the captain’s house for his birthday, but they are suspicious of the invite as it comes at the last minute. The sergeant knows that his colleagues are a bunch of socially inept weirdos, so he tries to coach them to stick to safe topics of conversation.
Jake continues to put his foot in his mouth with Kevin, Holt’s husband, latching onto a New Yorker article he glanced at, while Gina wows all the academics and shrinks in attendance with her unique psychological quirks.
Though they don’t make much of an impression on Holt’s husband, Jake learns why Kevin really isn’t crazy about cops, and makes some progress showing that they’re really not that bad, after all. The force has come a long way since Holt first fought for his rights all those years ago.
And, since they sort of ruined the captain’s birthday by showing up, Jake and the others coordinate a nice dinner for Holt and his husband, without an audience.
Agents of SHIELD 2/4
It seems silly that they took all that time off to come back for one episode and then took another three weeks off… Like we were going to forget them if they didn’t throw one new one in there before the Olympic break? Come on, son!
But, right off the bat, we get a few fun tidbits, Skye and Fitz play a couple, and Coulson and Simmons gets a visit from none other than Stan Lee! If you switch on for nothing else, at least watch that scene. Stan Lee chastising Coulson is priceless!
Coulson and Ward try to figure out how to use the holo-table, which in itself is hilarious, and Ward tries to explain his relationship with May, knowing now that Coulson has been let in on the secret.
It’s one of those ones where things take place in a certain span of time, and it goes back over where everybody was at that time and what happened to them, first with Coulson and Ward, then May, then Simmons, and Fitz and Skye last. It seems someone has weaponized the contents of the night-night gun to make it airborne.
Skye gets separated from Fitz, and winds up in a room with Mike (J. August Richards), who appears to be under some sort of mind-control, and the crazy tech magnate Quinn, and while Mike declines to kill her, as it’s not his mission, Quinn doesn’t hesitate shooting her.
The team shows up and finds her, but not before she’s lost a lot of blood and a pulse. Simmons sees a fancy machine that should help keep Skye alive for a short while, but she desperately needs medical attention. Ward, Fitz, Simmons, and Coulson are all visibly shaken and upset by Skye’s injuries, but May is trying to hold them together, not very well.
At last, we see Mike at a playground, and it looks like his mission has to do with some sort of kidnapping, but the focus is not on his next action. Instead, it’s on the technology in his new bionic leg, something called Deathlok. Considering the ominous-sounding name, I don’t imagine that’s the end of that story!
Poor Skye! If SHIELD can save Coulson, rather, bring him back to life, I feel confident they’ll be able to save Skye, but at what cost? Perhaps her super secret powers will emerge at the last moment? Or maybe Coulson will stop them from bringing her back the way he was brought back, because Tahiti turned out not to be so magical after all.
This is a Joss Whedon production, don’t forget, and I wouldn’t put it past the man pulling the strings to have one of our favorite characters killed off, season one or not!
Gibbs and Tyler are trying to make their new boss Myron cooler on the internet, Neal has a new intern (guest appearance by Ed Asner), and Milo is getting tips on his theoretical novel from Bridget Ellis, a well-known writer (guest appearance by Jane Seymour)!
Milo thinks he’s getting real advice about the novel he wants to write from a professional, but in fact, he’s happened upon a powerful older woman who just wants him for sex and has no real intention of helping him with his book. Tyler and Gibbs try to explain this, giving him such names as “mescort” and “slobstitute”, but he still doesn’t get it right away.
But she takes it even further, introducing him around like a gigolo, and even paying him “pencil money” (He is a writer, after all) for services rendered. Milo doesn’t get it, but when she explains that he hasn’t actually written a novel, he realizes that he’s got to do the work before he can expect a break like that to happen for real. And, after a few short words with Neal’s ex-intern, he decides that if he really wants to write his book, he needs to focus on that full-time, and he announces his intention to quit the magazine.
Gibbs and Tyler get overly competitive trying to win Myron’s little contest, which includes a bonus, but they make up.
Neal thinks that his intern is just dead weight, but after he finds out how useful he has been in terms of ad sales, he starts to reconsider. But by this time, he’s already met Milo’s publishing friend, and she mentioned something about “pencil money”…
Kee gets into some real trouble this week, but for once, it’s not his fault! His ex-wife sees their son’s teacher coming out of Kee’s apartment as she’s coming to drop off some furniture, and she immediately jumps to the logical conclusion, that Kee is sleeping with her.
At work, Kee is called in to defend a cannibal, of all things. However, cannibalism is not illegal, so the man has been charged with the murder of the man whom he ate.
It’s a very touchy case, as cannibalism revolts even those with the strongest of stomachs, but by the end, there’s simply no case to be made against him. The man who was eaten made a video in which he clearly states his intentions to kill himself, and his wishes to be consumed after his death.
I was a little confused by the guy having taken sleeping pills, because I wondered if the chemicals would get into the system of the guy who cannibalized him, which seemed a little dangerous. Not that I condone cannibalism, but it just seemed a little weird to play it out that way.
Not a hundred percent sure where Kee’s debt lies, but he’s still getting the shit beat out of him once a week or so, so I’m guessing he’s still in for a pound. However, he gets Roy to punch him in the jaw where he has a bad tooth that was going to need a root canal, and the punch knocks the sucker loose, so at least it was good for something.
Almost Human and The Following are new Monday night, and then it’s just a new episode Wednesday with Men at Work, and a new episode of Rake on Thursday.
I think the majority of shows are returning next week, so we’ll be back to a busy schedule again soon enough!
