New Girl is back on the solid footing that steered its first two seasons, and perhaps even a little stronger.

The good news is if you've enjoyed the show in the past - and perhaps felt New Girl lost a bit of its fastball - the kickoff episodes suggest there might be more to like in the year ahead.

"The Last Wedding" is funny, and very much feels like a show regressing to the enjoyable ensemble comedy it was early on.

The ensemble that made this show such a fun place to spend Tuesday nights. Welcome back, New Girl. It's nice to see you again.

Dec 10, 2014 | Full Review…

It is honestly hard not to love this quirky gang. The comedic energy was there and I enjoyed it like I did with season 1. Everything fits right into place again and the chemistry is back.

Sep 22, 2014 | Full Review…

Overall, the episode was a nice season premiere and we should be optimistic about the upcoming antics. The shift that will include incorporating Coach and Winston more in the upcoming stories will certainly pay off.

Sep 17, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This episode does have a particular quality that works.

Sep 17, 2014 | Rating: 7.2/10 | Full Review…

"The Last Wedding" was pretty damn funny and not entirely awful as far as the relationship stuff was concerned. Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

Sep 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Liz Meriwether said one of the goals for getting the show back on track would be to simplify the storytelling and put her characters in position to be funny as often as possible. "The Last Wedding" is a strong example of that approach at work.

Sep 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Overall, New Girl's Season 4 premiere was a tame start for the return of Jess and the gang.
