"There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now."

The reason the cosmic Marvel universe intrigues me so much, especially as showcased in the world-building taking place in Thor and The Guardians of the Galaxy, is that it presents a fairly unique science fiction universe.  What fascinates me most is that it seems humans, originally coming from earth, are the more populous species in the universe, and that earth itself plays a large role in galactic affairs, despite the planet’s populace at large being fairly unaware of it (if only the Marvel-owned Men In Black could be brought back into the fold, alas).  To say nothing of the relationship of the “nine realms” to the greater cosmic geography, and how Asgard might play into the war-mongering of various races like the Kree and Chitauri.  

To say the least, I dream of an extended opening sequence in Avengers 3 in which Thanos and his minions tear their way through many places we’ve grown familiar with in the franchise, like Odin’s Vault at Asgard and Xandar’s Nova Corps HQ, in order to retrieve the infinity stones.  A temporary sound defeat of the combined might of the Nova Corps, Asgard (although Loki is probably still in league with Thanos somewhat, I’d set my watch and warrant on it, and right now he’s on the throne), and the Guardians before he reaches earth would definitely set our Mad Titan up to be quite a formidable foe for the likely disbanded and broken Avengers after Ultron has his way with them.  Throw that theory I’ve always had about a Planet Hulk movie, and the Deus ex Machina in Thanos’ defeat being Hulk returning to earth, Guardians, Nova Corps, and Odin in tow, and I think we’d make for an excellent climax to the Avengers’ saga.


why dont people have pizza parties anymore like hell yeah invite me over to your house to eat pizza and then i’ll leave that’s the shit i do like

FWIW, I still think New Girl is the literal greatest.




And this season has been a delight so far: great writing and delivery and a nice emphasis on the interpersonal dynamics and contrasts that are at the heart of the show.  And hopefully I’m not alone. :) I’ve liked all three episodes.  I can’t wait to see what’s next.

This show has me until the end, for better or worse lol. And I liked the first two episodes way too much to write S4 off yet. They are coming up with some really funny gags and jokes this season. I just think it could be SO MUCH better if they got Nick back on track as well as they’re doing with Schmidt.

(Warning, this got LONG; just a counterpoint. :))

See, I think Nick is being written ENTIRELY in character.  I think he was very VERY in character The Box and the pathological avoidance it showcased.  It’s Nick Miller: we have way way way more examples of him being a disgusting, irresponsible weirdo than the reverse.  And we love him anyway!  That’s the mysterious charm in it: some alchemy of Jake Johnson + Liz/Brett/Dave + Zooey that makes him — in the words of lulabo's Nick tag — #the weirdest dude I have ever loved.

And when it comes to personal growth, it definitely does happen, but he’s VERY much a two steps forward one step back kinda guy.  (If you wanted, you could even argue that the Jess breakup lets him wallow in all the comfortable, weirdo habits he was trying to minimize while with her. Or that they bring him comfort in his hour of post-breakup sorrow.)  

But Nick’s room being a pigsty?  Nick getting stoned?  Yep, sounds like Nick Miller.  Yeah, it makes it a lot harder for him to have a Real Adult Relationship with Jess, which I think is kinda the point of how their arc is playing out.  As Liz said in a recent interview, “What I love about Nick is what a fucking idiot he is. It’s hard when you have Jess, who is this lovable girl. It was fun when she was flirting with this fucking idiot she lived with, but when they were dating, suddenly everything got so much more real. It was like, ‘Maybe Jess is dating an alcoholic, and it’s not funny?’

And I’d be really bummed if they DID suddenly have him straightening up and trying to do better by himself/be more of a grownup: (a) because I think that role is filled by other characters on the show, (b) it’s SO believable and realistic and NECESSARY to have a character like him, both because it’s hilarious (this IS a comedy, it needs the broad charaters) and because we KNOW people like that, no?  (My younger brother basically IS NICK MILLER.)  

And (c) because it lends so much pathos to his overall arc.  As he screams at his dad: I am not a successful adult!  I don’t eat vegetables and/or take care of myself!  That’s the fundamental place he’s coming from.  And there’s already been SO much richness in figuring out why, the glimpses the show has given us (Chicago, Valentine’s Day, Winston’s Birthday, Elaine’s Big Day, Models).  

It’s gonna make it mean so much more if and when he does start to change, in more significant ways.  But doing that right! now! could ruin the show; it would seem so easy and TV cliched, like all the Friends having their dream jobs by the end of the series.  New Girl is messier.  New Girl’s characters are more messed up and complicated and fascinating.  And of course it’s a long game: as read-it-out-loudread-it-out-loud just pointed out in a comment, we’re only 3 episodes into the season, in a show that hopefully has years to come.

Which is why I’ll take as much loony, gross Nick Miller as the show can give; ‘cause that’s also the Nick Miller who loves Jess, who loves Schmidt, who’s loved back fiercely by both of them because of and in spite of himself; who takes care of his whole family; who doesn’t know at all what he’s doing, a chubby, delicate flower who hates himself.




1. The New Girl tag is just filled with so much spam and it’s awful.
