New Girl 3.16 “Sister” Review: Day and Night

“Sister” isn’t a bad episode of New Girl, but it’s not a great one either. It’s an uneven episode, one that nails the big punch lines and comedic moments but underserves the story, due to lack of time and an attempt to give everyone in the main cast something special to do. Out of all the plots that feel half-baked throughout the episode, however, the one where New Girl drops the ball the most is with Jess and her older sister, Abby, a self-destructive, wild child played by Linda Cardellini of Freaks and Geeks’ fame. Fortunately, as the episode’s ending scene with Abby moving in (and hitting on Nick) shows us, it looks like Cardellini will stick around New Girl for at least another episode or so, which will hopefully allow the writers to more strongly develop her character and her relationship with Jess.
