A sitcom that’s not short of some very funny moments, New Girl’s chief asset is clearly the wonderful Zooey Deschanel. She takes on the role of Jess here, who, off the back of a break up, moves into a shared apartment with three male roommates, played by Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield and Lamorne Morris. That sets the grounding for an ensemble comedy, that follows the path trodden many times before in American television. And truthfully, it takes a while for New Girl to find its feet and identity as a result of that.
But find its feet it does. The ensemble cast gels, and as they do so, the comedy starts to work better too. There’s good writing underpinning it, too, and while it’s derivative, New Girl is also very funny. Deschanel is arguably one of her generation’s most underrated comedy actresses, and she’s clearly enjoyed her role here. Granted, each of the characters conveniently has different, well-trodden defining traits, but it does give them each plenty to play off.
The season one box set brings you the episodes themselves and there are a fair few extras to get your teeth into. The featurettes are breezy, and the gag reel is always welcome. You’ll get the most out of the commentary tracks that accompany a couple of the episodes, though. What’s more, there’s real and definite rewatch potential here. It’s certainly intriguing to see, now the foundations are in place, where New Girl can go from here. As it stands, as this box set proves, it’s off to a fine and confident start. --Jon Foster

All in all it's very much worth the money for the amount of episodes included (unlike some TV shows, who put out 12 episode series' for over 20 quid and rip you off), it has some very funny moments, and some very beautiful women.
Easy to watch, it will keep you entertained.
Jess, our focus and center of drama is a hilariously funny character who kind of acts like a guy. She is far from a tomboy, although the move to make her look geeky may be slightly questionable, it is more like her mannerisms and her pesona, she is quirky but in a sweet way and it is all done in a hilariously funny way. She has what in the film mean girls they refer to as 'word vomit' and her constant remarks and saying and doing things without thinking make for genuinely cringy and funny moments that have you going did she really do that?
Her character is a refreshing change from the stereotypical women who seem to be associated with this genre and is offset against the guys she is now flat sharing with. Each having their own quirks but my favourite being Shmit who thinks he is such a ladies man and kind of loves himself but does it it in a femininely way which is so funny at times you would wish you knew him. But when it comes down to it the guys are there for Zooey's character Jess when she needs them and I think that is what is great, because as the series progresses you see the bond growing and them becoming like a family together and sticking by each other. Its clear that friendship is the key and that Jess might just be the right person to be the glue in all of their friendships.
The episodes are quite short each time but are similar Friends style format and they have some genuinely funny moments which will have you cringing,laughing,empathising and absolutely loving!
