Hubbedy Bubby: New Girl’s Election PSA


It was only a matter of time that fall TV referenced the most controversial presidential election in American history.  In “Hubbedy Bubby,” Jess and Cece volunteered for the Clinton campaign and Schmidt dreamed of Paul Ryan’s future presidency.  The show was not only hilarious, it subtly explained the importance of voting, elections, and politics.

After parading through the sorority house taking shots and getting signatures, Jess and Cece reunited on a bench in the backyard.  That’s when they realized the sorority girls weren’t being entirely honest, signing fake names instead of real ones.  Cut to the next scene, Jess was standing on the house balcony while Cece looked up from her in the backyard.  Cece looked just as confused as I was.  How did Jess get up there so fast?  Wasn’t she just sitting on the bench?  This was a poor transition that could have been better executed by placing a commercial break or cutting to another character’s storyline in between the two shots.
