4.0 out of 5 stars Who's that girl? Its Jess!, 25 Jan. 2012
This review is from: New Girl - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
A lot of people might give this a go purely on the basis that Zooey Deschanel is a great actress but I promise you there is more to this than the average sitcom show. Taking the Friday night spot on channel four here in the UK is a big move considering the success and popularity of Friends but its new,fresh, funny and a little outside the box.

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!
