When I was going through some really bad times, and my hatred for this world wasn't contained or aimed correctly, I couldn't stand her. The kitchy kooky uniqueness was just annoying.
When I got some of my emotional baggage under control, I ended up getting into "New Girl" because of their great interactions. I love that Jew who plays Schmidt.
But last night I was watching the latest episode and Jess was teaching Schmidt's daughter all these lessons about how instead of learning to draw a circle you can just spin in circles. Instead of correctly identifying a color, you can call it whatever you want. Because apparently accuracy doesn't matter.
It was infuriating. It wasn't cute. It was the equivalent of modern politics where facts don't matter, only emotions. I couldn't even bring myself to watch the entire episode, because I was certain that her wacky individualistic 'make your own reality' was going to win big at the end.
She was even saying you don't need to use the correct word for things. But how the fuck are people supposed to communicate if you are teaching children that language doesn't matter?
There is just no sense. I know it is a sitcom, but all these things are engineered as thought control.
