Fox's adorkable comedy New Girl returned from its first year a smarter, funnier and all-around better show.
Overall, "Elaine's Big Day" is a very good finale to what has been an exceptional second season of New Girl, and we should await the third season with baited breath.
Catchphrases aside, Deschanel actually plays tough much better than twee.
This show was at once a breath of fresh air. Now, with a love triangle, a wedding finale, and a big guest appearance, it feels more of the same.
New Girl is the rare mainstream sitcom that's exceedingly at ease in discussing race, largely because it acknowledges the characters' well-meaning, flawed views, and plays them for eye rolls and laughs.
