Goodbye to New Girl

Going through all the episodes of New Girl to pick out my favorite moments, I realized just how solid the first season was. A first season of a show is always the hardest. It takes time to establish these characters and to find the groove of the show.  And nowadays, it’s so hard to predict if you’re going to make it past a year, even to at least 13 episodes. The writers did a great job of making a rock-hard first season just in case that was all they were going to get. Thank God, New girl carried along for a total of seven seasons. You’ll notice most of my favorite moments are from the first three seasons. That’s not because I didn’t enjoy the other four—I did very much—but I have watched the first three seasons so many times that they are more imprinted in my head. But I think I have decided that Season 2 is my all-time favorite.

And now for my favorite moments of the beloved comedy, New Girl! Most likely, I’m missing a lot of classics but off the top of my head this is what I have. Get ready for a lot of feelings *WEEEE*:

#SaveBrooklyn99

Tragedy has struck our television screens. The idiots at Fox have cancelled Brooklyn 99. The Internet went absolutely crazy after the announcement yesterday, lashing out at the network for getting rid of such a important and inclusive show. People were immediately tweeting different hashtags like #SaveB99 and #Brooklyn99, where it was trending world wide with two separate hashtags. These campaigns came out in full-force and by this morning the show was being shopped around at Hulu, Netflix, and other networks.

When you piss off Lin Manuel Miranda AND Luke Skywalker, you know you done messed up!

That is the genius of Dan Goor and Mike Schur. They take simple subjects like a common work-place, local government, and now, a police precinct, and create amazing and diverse characters. They kicked it up a notch with their storylines with Brooklyn 99 and told more serious and timely stories while still keeping their silly tone. Two Latina cops, one that becomes a Lieutenant, a black and openly gay Captain who is running for Commissioner, a leading man who is a feminist, the list goes on.  The show also recognizes how police are perceived in the media and they don’t shy away.  This show is so important and so hilarious, it’s not fair that it’s being taken away from us.
