Loving New Show, "New Girl"
September 23, 2011 - Brandi Bowers
Ok, I have to admit, these days, I haven't had a lot of time for tv. So, I haven't been too interested in getting attached to any new Fall shows. One new show, however, caught my eye. New Girl premiered on FOX this week and stars one of my favorite actresses, Zooey Deschanel.
The bad thing is, it's up against Ringer, which stars Sarah Michelle Geller. A Buffy fan to the core, I had originally planned on watching that one, too, but oh well. (Sigh, do I need DVR). Anyway, after a boring episode of Glee (hopefully, the whole season won't be like that), I watched New Girl. And I was definitely not alone. Around 10.1 million viewers watched.
Deschanel was absolutely adorable. It opens with a cliche... girl living with her boyfriend, goes home early to surprise him, surprise he's cheating on her, now she needs a place to live and our story begins. So, she moves in with 3 guys (thinking from the ad, it would be 3 girls, but then how would that be as funny?). Within the first few minutes of the show, I was laughing hysterically. The part with the jar that the one roommate had to put money in was just priceless. I'd go into detail, but it's something you really need to see for yourself. Or you can get the full recap here: http://tvrecaps.ew.com/recap/new-girl-season-1-episode-1/ .
I'm not entirely sure of the roommates yet and I've read that they are already replacing one of them. I think with Deschanel's quirky, nerdy character, the show has some serious potential. I'll be excited to watch the next few episodes and see how it goes. I mean, how do you not love a girl who has to watch Dirty Dancing repeatedly after a break up? That was too cute! What did you think? Did you see the premiere?
