There are a lot of problems that must be faced in the world of “New Girl.” In the episode airing on Tuesday (Nov. 13), “Menzies,” we see many of them. Schmidt has to fend off a sexy, powerful boss lady. Nick deals with his feelings. Jess and Winston struggle with PMS.
Yes, you read that last sentence correctly. Oh, and there’s also a dog in a cup.
These videos tell us a great deal about what is coming in “Menzies”. A big guest star, Carla Gugino, should be the most important bit of information we learn from all of this. Strangely, however, her appearance — however amusing — is not the major takeaway.
The major takeaway is PMS. Not only does Jess (Zooey Deschanel) express her pre-menstrual feelings in a way that most of us can only dream of, she also brings Winston (Lamorne Morris) along for the ride. Sympathetic PMS is a thing? Who knew?
Considering that we also see Nick (Jake Johnson) dealing with his extreme anger (in an unusual way) and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) quite possibly refusing the advances of the VP of Everything in North America, there may be PMS issues all around.
Whether or not that’s true, just sit back and relax with your favorite soft pretzels while you enjoy these clips from “New Girl”, which airs at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday on FOX.
