who’s that girl?

It’s Jess!

I’m not going to lie; I was initially drawn to this dramedy because I have a huge girl crush on Zooey Deschanel. Who doesn’t love those giant doe-eyes?

New Girl kicks off with Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel), an eccentric and girlish elementary school teacher, sharing the story of why she’s looking for a new apartment. After a few seconds of deliberation (and a “no bang” pact to boot), the three male roommates accept Jess into their weird family.

Premiering in 2011, the American sitcom revolves around Jess and her new friends Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), and Winston (Lamorne Morris), as they’re faced with new careers, relationships and experiences.

Nick is a jaded and grumpy bartender who acts like he’s 60, Schmidt is a materialistic businessman who prides himself on his knack with the ladies, and Winston is a former Latvian basketball player who sort of, well, just helps move the plot along. Together with Jess, a bubbly and naive girly-girl obsessed with sparkles and rainbows, they provide their viewers with offbeat humour that will leave them wishing that they were part of the core four.

It was easier than I imagined to feel so connected to a girl that has adorable farm animals on her cheques. Give New Girl a chance!

8.5/10 – the type of show I could re-watch over and over again and still find new jokes to laugh at.
