    Smoke show best friend chick. What?

    I thought second ep got a little better and hope that trend continues. As for Free Agents, I think that is the most adult sitcom of the fall. It doesn't go for all the stupid jokes that most seem to do. Not at Frasier level, that's for sure, but it has possibilities.

    I liked the 2nd episode. Her character was less a spaz and more like Zooey. Not laugh out loud funny, but I did chuckle quite a few times. I liked the scene towards the end where she told her ex BF off. I'm sticking with it.

    Jess's model friend is hawt..

    I just finished the second episode. I actually found Jess a bit more tolerable this time. Keeping it for now.

    I agree on both counts. I really like Free Agents.

    I didn't like the second ep nearly as much. I really liked the DWJ character "Coach", and didn't take to his replacement. Maybe he'll end up working out, but the vibe was totally different.

    I agree about missing Coach.. But my liking this episode had mostly to do with finding Jess more tolerable. That will be key for me. How much I can tolerate or like Jess.

    I almost didn't record Free Agents. Turns out I think it's one of the better new sitcoms in this season's batch.

    As for New Girl, I liked the second episode much better than the first.

    So just to clarify my possibly zoning out.. they didn't actually explain the Coach character being gone, right? It was just as if they had 2 roommates (plus the New Girl), then the guy from a couple years ago comes back for the big room... right?

    They explained it quickly. Coach went to go play basketball in Euorope. The "new" roomate was a guy that was coming back from playing in europe.

    Wow, ok, I did remember the coming back from playing in Europe part.. I didn't realize they had the Coach character in that explanation too.

    The only mention of Coach was that he played in college with the new guy. No mention of why coach is now gone.

    Agreed. I just rewatched that scene and it does not explain where Coach went.

    So is this really worth watching? I set up a season pass but have not watched the first three episodes yet. I've never like the acting by Zooey in other things I've seen her in but I don't think those were comedies.

    The third episode was probably the funniest.

    But if you don't like ZD, I doubt you would like this. It's a pretty healthy dosage.

    The show is still meh for me - don't love it, don't hate it. Which means I'll probably stop watching since we have so many other things on our schedule...

    I thought Zooey was very likable in this week's ep. Not too much for us...

    I like her, but when the episode was finished I turned to the wife and said: "Worst episode yet."
